If you’ve fallen out of playing Pokémon Sun and Moon, here are some reasons to at least dip your toes back in.
First off, Gamestop is giving Lycanroc cards out that will give you a code to download one in its Midnight Form. Normally, you have to evolve Rockruff to level 25 in Pokémon Moon at night to get one, so Pokémon Sun players (me) could miss out on it. This Lycanroc will come with the moves Stone Edge, Fire Fang, Sucker Punch, and Swords Dance, have the No Guard ability, and come holding a Life Orb.
Not enough to entice you? How about the return of some Mega Evolutions?
Enter in the code AZUL in the Mystery Gift option and you’ll gain Mega Stones for Pidgeotite, Steelixite, Heracronite, and Houndoominite.
At least I finally have a reason to bring up my Pidgeot that I started using in Pokémon X and Y to Pokémon Sun. Seems as enticing reasons as any to take a trip back to Alola.
