The Pokemon craze continues with "Pokemon Sun and Moon" as the latest installments to the popular Nintendo franchise has greatly expanded its universe. As players all over the world endeavour to be the very best in the new Pokemon games, we bring you the best tips and tricks, strategies and secrets to finishing "Pokemon Sun and Moon," including how to catch rare Pokemon such as Salamence and Ultra Beasts, and dealing with the new Pokemon universe that is the Alolan region.

How to catch rare Pokemon

Thankfully, catching the legendaries and rare Pokemon in "Pokemon Sun and Moon" do not need too much elaboration. For titular legendaries Solgaleo and Lunala, players need only to finish the entire story as Champion and enter the Altar of the Sunne or Moone on Poni Island. Cosmog, meanwhile, can be caught after catching either of them.

"Pokemon Sun and Moon" guardian deities can be challenged after becoming the champion of Alola. Tapu Koko is on Melemele Island; Tapu Lele, Akala; Tapu Buli, Ula'Ula; and Tapu Fini, Poni. The legendary Zygarde, meanwhile, can be caught by collecting all 100 Zygarde elements which are scattered across the island.

Changing Oricorio's type every battle

In "Pokemon Sun and Moon," there's a special type of Pokemon named Oricorio, which acts like a sort of package deal--catch one and you catch 'em all. These Pokemon are special because they are able to change their Type (fire, water, grass, you name it), depending on the nectar it's given before a battle. This comes in useful especially when players are at a Type disadvantage.

Salamence in 'Pokemon Sun and Moon'

Salamence is one of the highly coveted Pokemon not just in "Pokemon Sun and Moon" but in every Pokemon game it's available because of its high stats and power. Players would first need access to Adrenaline Orbs and False Swipes to catch Bagons on Route 3 of Melemele Island. Once battled, they would usually summon another Pokemon, but once their PPs are depleted, they call on a Level 10 Salamence.
