    So far I'm enjoying the game, but I'm finding the additions lead to additional linear plots with limited time to just battle random trainers and grind. I don't need the life story of every NPC!
    so you got some curb appeal
    but can you cook a three-course meal?
    or are you just a present waiting to be
    opened up and parceled out again?

    Yeah, Game Freak and Nintendo did go a little overboard with this feature of the games!

    I played through it earlier this year. While the game itself was good there were barely any changes to the original versions - so if you have Sun/Moon, then getting Ultra is a waste of time. In that regard it was the worst "special edition" game so far. All others had some significant changes but here you only notice them at the very end when the story is slightly altered.

    Good to know. That supports my decision of not buying them. Thanks for the heads up!

    It would be nice if they did a sequel like they did with Black and White, but a small variation like they did... That's not worth my money nor my time.

    I do like hearing life stories, though. Especially since in previous Pokemon games all characters seemed to be cut out of cardboard, no life in them whatsoever.

    I'm still not done with Ultra Moon. I've been trying to catch 'em all at this point but am halfway done with the Rainbow Rocket saga. The dex is at ... 317? 318? or so out of 400, so progress has been made it's been a fun adventure because I played this version in Spanish. First of all the dialogue is a LOT more mature in the Spanish versions. Second... the Rotom Dex speaks perfect Spanish. So even though it's annoying as hell in that it won't. shut. up... it doesn't go "It'zzzzzz a good day to get Pokemonzzzzzz!!!11" The game is a LOT more sophisticated in Spanish than in English. Also, Team Skull... I think because Spanish has more to work with in terms of rhyming options (with verbs and adjectives having similar final syllables phonetically), the raps are smarter. Some scenes spoken in foreign languages in the English version are spoken in English in this version! It was definitely worth the experience so far.

    On the downside not too many folks actually play this game, so it's tough to trade to fill the Dex up. I'm also not fond of the wormhole thing--although the duo from Ultrapolis are a lot of fun to interact with throughout the game. I just don't like the mechanic; it's awkward! I really also don't like the idea of having to shuffle through random encounters with tons of generic Pokemon just to find the same legendaries you had to go out and hunt for Handsome in the original. It makes the process grueling.

    Oh goodness, I forgot about that wormhole already. Super annoying and I only did it that one time to finish the game (and that took repeated attempts). I was close to throwing in the towel.
