Pokemon Sun and Moon continues to be one of the more innovative installments in the series. Not only do the two games ditch the Pokemon Gym system, but they also have Alolan versions of some of the original Pokemon. It seems like the two games are going to full RPG territory, as a new side quest that involves the Pokemon Pyukumuku can be achieved for extra in-game cash.
The side quest is pretty simple: toss various Pyukumukus back to the ocean. The problem is that they always come back since they tend to like the various locations they find. Apparently, they don’t mind starving as long as they’re comfortable with what they’ve found, which is an interesting dilemma, to say the least.
Still, it’s a great way to make money. The video below shows the player tossing some of the Pyukumus into the ocean and getting 20,000 Poke Dollars for it. That’s a lot of money, so it seems like the side quest is essential, or at the least, a decent way to kill some time if the player is tired of battles. Either way, it’s easy money.
It will be interesting to see if Pokemon Sun and Moon will introduce more side quests like this so players can get more money, which could add depth to the game more than any of the previous titles. It obviously won’t be as big as The Witcher 3 or Skyrim, but it does ensure that the player will be having fun with either game for a long time.
Pyukumuku is one of the grosser Pokemon introduced in the two new games. This Pokemon literally hurls its inner organs at an opponent as an attack, which is pretty disgusting, in all honesty. Why it wants to stay in various parts of the island is beyond anyone, but at least fans can make a quick buck out of it.
Pokemon Sun and Moon are slated for a November 18 release on the 3DS. The two games will also be playable on the 2DS and New 3DS, so no one will be left behind. Fans who want both versions can get the dual pack, which features the two games in a nifty steelcase.
