On their trips to the Alola regions in Sun and Moon, players experienced a Pokémon adventure like no other, complete with an Island Challenge replacing the series' main Gym Battle.
These Gen 5 entries in the series were the first mainline Pokémon games to take players to an inspired region from another part of the world other than Japan.
As a follow-up to Sun and Moon, these Ultra variants expanded the Alola territory to take a fresh look at the first game's Island Adventures, including the all-new Ultra Beasts.
In this successor to the Gen 4 games Diamond and Pearl, players return to the Sinnoh region to once again take down Team Galactic.
The mainline Gen 3 games, Ruby and Sapphire, are now remembered by fans as early entries in the series, but they basically represent the future of Pokémon.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the newest game in the series, and early returns reveal that its new approach to the monster collection is resonating with fans.
