There's so much buzz surrounding "Pokemon Sun and Moon," and rightfully so. This is the second "Pokemon" game to take the world by storm this year and it seems that Nintendo keeps hitting the jackpot with these games. The latest news surrounding the RPG is that the game looks pretty good on Unreal Engine 4, while gamers fail to complete the global mission that ended yesterday.

Nerdist is reporting about how almost any game would look so much better running on Unreal Engine 4, including "Pokemon Sun and Moon." In fact, a new fan-made video has surfaced, showing how seventh-generation Pokemon Incineroar and Salazzle battle each other, all running on Unreal Engine 4. As expected, the tech demo shows how amazing "Pokemon Sun and Moon" would look with Unreal Engine 4.

Back in October, Nintendo announced that the Switch will have support for the Unreal Engine 4, which means that "Pokemon Sun and Moon" gamers will soon be seeing awesome visuals such as these. In the meantime, we know that "Pokemon Sun and Moon" gamers failed to complete the global mission that ended yesterday.

The news comes via Polygon, which reports that "Pokemon SUn adn Moon" gamers worldwide were not able to catch 100 million target Pokemon during the event. Sadly, gamers were only able to capture 16.4 million Pokemon, a far cry from the 100 million target. This is the first major event for "Pokemon Sun and Moon," and while gamers fail to complete global mission, there will be more to come.

"Pokémon Sun and Moon" is now playable on the Nintendo 3DS and is developed by Game Freak. It is directed by Shigeru Ohmori and produced by Junichi Masuda, Shin Uwai, Takato Utsunomiya, and Hitoshi Yamagami. Make sure to check back on the latest on "Pokemon Sun and Moon."
