Pokémon Sun And Pokémon Moon Are Set 12 Hours Apart


The Pokémon Company has revealed that Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will have a significant difference between each version.

While certain Pokémon can only be discovered in just one of the two versions, Game Freak has now introduced a difference between the way that time is set in each game.

The two worlds of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are 12 hours apart from one another, and are tied to a real-time clock. That means that Pokémon Sun operates on the same time as your Nintendo 3DS system, whereas Pokémon Moon is shifted by 12 hours.

Certain Totem Pokémon that appear in the trials that you take part in will also be different in each version, while players will encounter different Pokémon on the same route depending on whether it is day or night.

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in North America, Australia and New Zealand on November 18th, and in Europe on November 23rd.
