You Can Throw Pyukumuku Back To the Sea And Get Paid For It on Pokémon Sun & Moon


The magazine V-Jump has released a video depicting more details about Pokémon Sun & Moon (via GameXplain Youtube Channel). On the vid we can see how the player can rescue Pyukumuku from the beach and throw them back into the sea in exchange for some money.

According to the Pokémon Sun & Moon official site:

Once a Pyukumuku finds a place it likes, it won’t budge from it. If someone moves it away, back it comes to the same spot. If it runs out of food to eat in that spot, it’ll stay there—and starve. The people of Alola found this so pitiful that they developed a tradition of chucking Pyukumuku back into the food-rich sea whenever they come across any thin-bellied Pyukumuku.

Some mysterious sand spouts are also seen on the video, which fans are speculating they’re Sandygasts and Palossands hiding in the sand.

Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon are launching for the Nintendo 3DS on November 18th in North America and November 23rd in Europe.

    Or maybe it’s a new penis clam Pokemon resembling a Geoduck:

    Like, damn fool. We’ve seen a lot of new shit within the past few weeks alone. Why is the idea of a side quest rustle your jimmies so hard? Are you Steve Jobs’ son? Does everything has to speak empty platitudes and attempt (and fail to) re-invent the wheel? Does the concept of simplicity scare you~?

    Aww, you poor babe.

    Anyway, I like how alive things look in Alola. You can see the person riding the Stoutland and stuff moving along the beach. It’s look nice. Don’t necessary consider this newsworthy, though… Eh, new gameplay for a popular series is gonna print money on some site, no matter how insignificant.

    To be honest, yeah. There’s plenty of shit you could have been complaining about, even for Sun and Moon, but the inconsequential sidequest is proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.

    Come on, nigga. You makin’ me upset for wasting my effort if this is all you can come out with. If I knew that this was the best y’all got, I would have tried less. Now I feel bad for setting the bar too high.

    (P.S., this isn’t the first sidequest the series introduced, nor the only trash collecting one)

    they do the individuals a favour, but hurt the species as a whole

    if a species is so stupid that it kills itself so hard that they have to throw the stupid things back i don’t know how they survived

    dude if that seriously struck a nerve you’ve gotten way too emotionally stuck on a game franchise

    that’s actually bad for you

    it’s just a game

    perhaps something has pushed the species outside of their original habitat and closer to the beaches
    maybe a change of currents driving them to the beach or some new predators

    there’s probably gonna be some spooky underwater invasive predator that eats them that looks like a skull or something

    Wait, do you honestly think I’m some mega-fanboy that can’t complain about and is emotionally attached to a fucking video game??

    See, now dumbasses like you that can’t discern what the fuck people are saying, even when they explicitly tell you what’s actually bothering them, and then proceeds to pretend like they know more about you than what they are actually talking about is why people hate comment sections.

    Go scroll up and read every word, again. Slowly. Like a turtle. Stuck in molasses. Until the point comes to you.

    Otherwise, let the big boys talk.

    It may be only a game, but that does not change the fact that some people act like morons from time to time.

    Yep. Over re-balancing a broken metagame (even the recent world champion said he gave up on using favourites and unique teams and “just picked what worked”), or making the graphics not suck.

    Pokemon Colosseum and Gale of Darkness were the last games to innovate- and even they weren’t perfect. It’s a telling sign when the Battle Frontier was cut from ORAS.

    This is also why I don’t get why people are hyped for the Trials over losing gym leaders. The trial puzzles so far have been “Find X mushrooms” and “Which dance is the odd one out”. Assuming you still fight the trial captain like a pseudo gym leader- those “puzzles” barely qualify as puzzles! Past games gym puzzles have been better than that!

    Interacting where you just walk up to something and press confirm is NOT a game. From what I’ve seen, Sun & Moon is shaping up to throw more of that in, while stripping out the few interesting things they had outside of battling.
