Pokemon Sun & Moon, served two ways: the diet-conscious spoiler-free version or full-fat unedited gameplay.

Watch on YouTube

Pokemon Sun & Moon provides eager fans with a taster in the form of an eShop demo.

In the video above, Arekkz shows off about 13 minutes of edited gameplay from the Pokemon Sun & Moon eShop demo, while avoiding any details of what happens when y- whoops, there I go, nearly ruining it for you. Let’s just say demo offers a better overview of Pokemon Sun & Moon than your initial exploration suggests.

If you don’t care about spoilers, or maybe can’t experience the Pokemon Sun & Moon eShop demo for yourself for some reason, he’s also done another video which shows off everything that happens, unedited. It’s a two-parter, with the first 30 minutes available now on YouTube. I haven’t embedded it to avoid accidental click dramas.

Pokemon Sun & Moon launches in November for 3DS. It’s not the first in the series to go 3D, but we’re pretty keen to see how Game Freak builds on some very solid foundations set with the last entry.

Well, we’ll find out today, I guess; the Pokemon Sun & Moon eShop demo is scheduled to go live October 18, which at time of writing was already underway on the West Coast, so refresh your local store frontage or Nintendo website and see if it’s there. I couldn’t find it on the Australian Nintendo website, but also it is a ghastly mess over there so that might not mean anything.
