Pokémon Sun and Moon are out. Some of you probably already own the game. If you’re like me, you’re curious about what separates the two titles. How do they differ?
It’s actually pretty straightforward. As usual, you’ll want a friend with the opposite version of your game for snapping up exclusive Pokémon. We’ll detail those here in a second.
We’ll start with the obvious.
Pokémon Sun and Moon have unique legendaries
This is always the case with Pokémon. Sun and Moon feature their own legendary monster. You can see them in the gallery directly above. Sun features Solgaleo, a Psychic/Steel, while Moon has Lunala, a Psychic/Ghost.
These Pokémon are powerful, so build your party around their eventual inclusion.
Pokémon Sun and Moon are separated by day and night
In Sun, the time of day matches the time on your system’s clock. If it’s 10 a.m. according to your 3DS, it’s 10 a.m. in Sun. Moon, however, is 12 hours ahead. 10 a.m. on your 3DS is 10 p.m. in Moon. Day, then, becomes night.
This really only matters aesthetically and while catching the rare Pokémon that rely on a specific time of day to appear.
Pokémon Sun and Moon have exclusive Pokémon
Not counting legendaries Solgaleo and Lunala, Sun and Moon have 18 exclusive Pokémon. Some of them are Alolan Forms of classic Pokémon, and others are simply evolved stages. Here’s the full rundown.

Pokémon Sun and Moon have different Totem Pokémon
Once you reach each Trial, you’ll be met by a Totem Pokémon. A few of them are completely unique to each game, though they can’t be caught. Alolan Raticate is the Totem Pokémon in the first Trial in Moon, for instance. In Sun, that Totem Pokémon is Gumshoos.
Those are the differences we know about so far. Have you spotted any more?
