While Pokemon Ultra Sun didn’t have any huge differences from Pokemon Sun, there were some slight changes to some of the trials, which I enjoyed much better than the other version.
3. Acerola’s Trial
I’m pretty sure this is the same as the trial from Pokemon Sun. However, it was one of my favorites then and it’s a favorite now. I like ghostly things and going through that abandoned area is creepy and keeps you on your toes, especially since you have to use the camera to search for ghosts.
2. Sophocles’s Trial
They really changed this and made it for the better. You have to solve a couple of puzzles in order to get the generator working that calls the Totem Pokemon. While the puzzles are super easy, it was a nice change of pace from everything else.
1. Mina’s Trial
Mina is the last trial you go through and it makes sense why. She wants to make you a special flower for completing all your trials, but you have to collect rainbow petals for her to create it. In order to get these petals, you must go back to the other captains and battle them. If you will, they’ll give you a petal. While I was disappointed this trial had nothing to do with Mina herself, I enjoyed that I had to go back and battle everyone. Battling is Pokemon, after all.
What are some of your favorite trials? Did you like them better in Ultra Sun/Moon rather than Sun/Moon? Let me know in the comments below and we’ll chat!
