You may want to consider getting a larger SD card if you’re low on spare space.

Not a huge surprise here. But I never download games from the eShop unless they are something like Badge Arcade and I always delete stuff once I am done with them. This is also one reason I buy hard copies and no digital.

They said when it was first leaked last year, that they spent more money on this game than any pokemon game before and it was a large sum of there budget for the entire year.

I'm really shocked at that size. They are basically double the size of both XY & ORAS! I hope that's a good indication to a higher amount of new Pokemon and maybe some extra post-game content if we're lucky.

So we need to get BOTH GAMES in order to get Ash-Greninja? Bye bye A-G lol
I dont want u so much if it means I have to buy both games, pointless
That's ambiguous wording in the article. It means you need to have the same SD card inserted when playing the Special Demo Version and either Sun or Moon for it to read your save game data and receive Ash-Greninja.

Whew, at least I did pre-order both Sun and Moon physically, so it won't be much of a hassle on my Micro SD card.

Definitely going to get a physical copy. Was going to anyway, all of my Pokemon games are physical copies actually. Though I'm not sure I'll have enough space to download the demo, I might have to uninstall something if I really want Ash-Greninja.

Same, I have to delete something because I definitely want Ash-Greninja. Fire Emblem Fates and Smash Bros take up soooo much space...

Packing a 16GB MicroSD card; so this won't affect my decision too much; though personally I will be aiming for the physical copy if I can manage it. My internet connection is much too slow to download that much; I'd have to make a special trip to McD or another place with an open hotspot to leech it from there and accelerate the download process.

A physical copy won't have that pain point but will require me to actually go to the store and purchase it, which comes with it's own complications. So I may go digital and endure the slow download instead; may take a day or two to download but it will eventually; though I may have to endure a firmware update to do it; and make sure my *hax entrypoints are all still available and usable so I can still maintain my home menu themes and homebrew launcher access.

The Physical copy may not actually have any problems being played on an older firmware; but it may actually be packaged with an update as well, on the cart. The chances of this are much lower however.

I will however be ultra salty if the game won't run on an Old 3DS model. But nothing I've seen in the promotional material has mentioned that they're going to shut the door on older 3DS owners; and it would be a very bad move on their part to do so.

I hope the demo is a lot less!
Demo is like 400mb iirc, nothing compared to the actual games haha. It is worth noting that even though it is significantly smaller, the ORAS demo was a fraction size of the full games too and that still got datamined like crazy. x.x

You shouldn't worry about Sun & Moon not running on an Old 3DS model because there is a S&M 2DS bundle.

Damn! Pokemon really is going all out for this game :D

I really makes me wonder how much we have to do in Sun and Moon. What if what we got in the trailers is only like A QUARTER of what we'll get to do? At this point, I believe that could be the case. Since I'm getting both versions, I have to be super careful now. Especially with the Ash-Greninja demo. I'm lucky to have enough space just for that, but still, this is gonna be a lot.

I have to admit I'm excited about Sun & Moon being a larger filesize than both 6th Gen games combined. I know part of it is due to the more advanced rendering of the overworld, but also likely an indicator there's a huge amount of content. At least Nintendo actually warned us that we need a larger SD card if we plan to digitally download it, but I'm still going for the physical copy regardless.

I'm pretty sure you only need the Special Demo Version to get Ash Greninja. Complete the demo and Ash Greninja can be transferred to the main game.
