During the Japanese variety show on April 3, it was reported that Nintendo and the Pokemon Company would reveal a new footage of the Pokemon Sun and Moon. However, the footage was just shown to the Japanese viewers, restricting the rest of the world.
Now, some reports claim that they have recycled the content which they have showcased during the Nintendo Direct of Pokemon Sun and Moon to the Japanese gaming audience. Based on the trailer below which was posted by YouTuber MyGamingBoulevard, there was now new gameplay footage revealed.
On March 26th, it was reported that director Junichi Masuda, game director Shigeru Ohmori, and battle director Shigeki Morimoto would appear in a variety show to talk about the upcoming game with new features as well as new gameplay footage.
Now, they released an update explaining that there is now new footage and the trailer was just the same to the ones which were aired in February.
Fans have big expectations with regards to the anticipated released of the newest franchise Pokemon Game. As the new-generation Pokemon game, the Pokemon Sun and Moon did not live up to the said expectations.
The post-game content for the Pokemon Sun and Moon seems to be shorter compared to other Pokemon franchises. In other words, the most awaited game has less of everything - from the story to Pokemon catching until to the very end of the game.
According to a Reddit post by u/gamemaker14, compared to the first Pokemon game versions, something is lacking in the end game play. The Reddit post also stated that the end game just showcases a few battles, item collection, and Zygarde cells/cubes collect-a-thon.
In other words, the moment you catch the ultra beasts, the options mentioned above will remain as your only choice for the endgame play. Fans were a bit disappointed and confused about the lack of gameplay which was showcased in the trailer.
Not everyone took the bait and got disappointed, though. Even some of them felt it was just a late April Fool's joke from the developers of the game, gamers, and fans of Pokemon are still hoping to see any real footage of the newest game in the series.
