I still play Sun (or sometimes Y or OR if I feel like replaying and doing a challenge).

Mostly, I try to hatch for shinies because that's always been oddly fun for me.

I'm still trying to train Pokemon up, but with that crappy EXP system from 5th Gen, I'm losing the motivation to do it.

    Yes, and it is an absolute chore because I have to do constant Elite Four rematches! Whoever at Game Freak came up with the idea of bringing back 5th Gen EXP should have been dumped.

    In my original game (Sun) I'm trying to complete the Pokedex (I'm only at 52%) and obtaining all TM's

    I still play and buy them, to try out new teams, and have fun doing so, now playing in them in other languages
    (currenlty I'm playing an Eeveelution team in Spanish in Moon, and French mixed team in Sun)

      I've only played through Moon once and haven't really done much since catching all the Tapus and Necrosma. I haven't played the game at all for several months now.

        I find myself playing gen 6 games more often because leveling up, hatching, and EV training is much easier there. Also, I still love Alpha Sapphire more than Moon (except for the trainer customization, I love serving looks). There isn't really anything interesting to do after beating the game that isn't more enjoyable in previous games, although I loved the story and all.

          Very much so, I've been playing a lot of Sun recently. It'll probably stay like that until Ultra Sun/Moon come out.

            Oh, definitely - I'm doing the introduction of Moon right now, actually, constructing a character I've wanted to do for months now!

            I've restarted quite a few times, but I only get so far before I get bored and just stop. Right around the time you're heading towards Kiawe's trial is when my interest starts to wane. I've still only completed the game once, which says a lot about my overall experience of the game. I'm usually one who does multiple playthroughs. but something about S/M just doesn't sit with me. Hoping the Ultra games fix a lot of the annoying little issues.

              I've done several restarts, and I'm about halfway through on my challenge of only using the first evolution for the entire game (Litwick, Dratini, Eevee, Zorua, etc.) I just got to the third island. My only complaint about this run is having to decline evolution after every battle! Haha. On my other playthrough I'm about 300 hours in. I love breeding for shinies or competitive Pokemon. It's very relaxing for me and I get to make a really good team while I'm at it.

                I'm thinking of restarting both versions again, only to get another Solgaleo, Lunala, more Ultra Beasts and so on.

                I already have a living dex I made for Gen 7, gotta prepare for Gen 8 :) . Yeah, I know, it's still far away...

                  u know what? i better get my stuff together. im going to prepare for a national dex for USUM. i already finished the pokedex in sun, so it shouldn't be too hard. but tell me, how do i see what pokemon i hav to catch to finish the national dex? and finally, why the heck did they remove the national dex? i know it was staisfying to finish the dex, but seriously, it took sooooo long for me. but i did it in a month, through the GTS and catching them. i like the gts and stuff, but dont you think its too easy to finish the ex? but im not complaining. and again, how do i measure how many pokemon i have to complete the dex?

                  Of course I do. I play them just as much as I do Pokemon X, which is quite a bit. I've also restarted a lot as well, but I do that no matter what. ^^;

                    Finished it in December, stopped playing, and did a second playthrough with a new team in July. I find it hard to do another playthrough because of all the cutscenes man. I enjoyed playing it the first and second time but it's not a game I would replay frequently.

                    I've played these games the least of any Pokemon game. I beat the main story in Moon, but never did the UB quest. I started Sun and didn't even get to the first trial. I don't know what it is about these games, but it's just hard to go back to as opposed to like. GSC or RSE or BW/BW2 for me. I have the same situation with XY. Just can't replay them well, but I've at least played through them about five times. SM? Not so much, though I think they're far better games than XY and I think they're great. I just can't get into them as much. Maybe I'm getting too old? idk.

                        No lol. I made it to Poni Island and stopped for when LoZ: BOTW came out. I've been trying to finish it this week, but I have very little motivation to do it.

                        I actually just decided a few minutes ago to do a Nuzlocke run (my very first Nuzlocke run despite playing these games since I was 7!) and see if it changes my experience by documenting my new playthrough. Just have to decide on the exact rules since I'm new to Nuzlockes.

                          I completed the Dex, and now I'm trying to get into competitive, And shiny hunting. For the most part, I created my own little hype for myself and let everyone else have their hype. This was the first game I've played with the release of it, and kind of just made that my hype. Right now I have a few shinies, here's in order of catching:

                          Talonflame, Vikavolt, Delibird, Crobat, Minior, Heatmor

                            I put the game down after I beat it in mid-December, then with the holidays and shiny new games to play, I didn't really feel like working on the Pokedex or any post-game stuff (I've never completed a Pokedex in any of the games... >_<) But today I saw a checklist of post-game stuff to complete before Ultra Sun/Moon comes out and it got me kind of excited to try to get some of it done, so I've picked my copy of Moon back up.

                            I still play Sun on and off for breeding purposes. I used it to get my all dragon team for my Moon file. So far i'm having fun playing it still.

                                I haven't played Moon since Release probably, started it and got to second island but found it to be extremely boring so now I'm more interested in shiny hunting in gen 6 then playing Moon.

                                  sad. i personally feel that sun and moon were going to be awesome games, but i really hyped them up for myself. I was waiting since 2015 for a new game, and when we didn't get one, it was a huge disappointment. but then sun was announced, and i got onto the never ending hype train. after the second islands grand trial, Ulaula island is really fun. you should continue.
