Pokémon Sun and Moon Walkthrough - a complete strategy guide to your 3DS adventure

Our complete walkthrough for every step of your latest Pokémon journey.

Pokémon Sun and Moon are here and, as we mentioned in our Sun and Moon review, do more than a little to shake up the well-trodden formula of Pokémon games gone by. Here, you'll find our in-progress Pokémon Sun and Moon Walkthrough, complete with item locations, trainers, battle tips and more for every part of the game, right from the moment you start your Alolan Island Challenge.

With new Pokémon, moves, mechanics and more, we also have some more specific pages which go into detail with tips for various, individual aspects of the game, which we'll list below.

As well as the walkthrough above, we also have a specific guide for our choice of the best Pokémon Sun and Moon starter from Rowlet, Litten and Popplio, as well as an in-progress list of where to find Zygarde Cells and Cores. We also have a list of QR codes, Z Crystal locations, Eevium Z Eevee User locations for Extreme Evoboost, evolutions for Alolan Forms and other new Sun and Moon Pokémon and fast way to increase a Pokémon's Happiness.

There are also a few giveaways too, such as the two Mewtwo Mega Stones code for Mewtwonite X and Mewtonite Y, how to transfer across Ash-Greninja from the Sun and Moon Demo, a mythical Magearna through QR code event and a Mewnium Z giveaway for Pokémon Bank users until October 2017.
