Pokemon Sun and Moon Black Friday

Hopefully, everyone has been enjoying Pokémon Sun & Moon! The two titles have been breaking records for Nintendo since their release. Now, you can buy the soundtrack for the games on iTunes.

Pokémon Sun & Moon

The Pokémon Sun & Moon soundtrack boasts a whopping 169 tracks for listeners. Critics and fans hold the music from the two games in high regard, as well as the games themselves! Sitting at a very comfortable 87/100 on OpenCriticPokémon Sun & Moon are well-regarded for shaking up the traditional formula of the series. Another strong point of the games is the soundtrack.

Pokémon Sun & Moon's soundtracks were composed by a variety of different composers. These include legendary Pokémon composer Junichi Masuda, who made music for the series since the very beginning in 1998! Another major composer of the game is Go Ichinose, who has worked on the series since the second generation of Pokémon.

Both Pokémon Sun & Moon put you in the shoes of a young trainer who has just moved to the Alola region. Once you arrive from the Kanto region, you're thrust into the grand trials of the Hawaiian-inspired islands! Instead of collecting eight gym badges, you must face the seven trials of the Alola region to prove yourself as a worthy trainer.

The Pokemon Sun & Moon soundtrack can be found on the iTunes store right now. You can buy each of the 169 tracks for $0.99. However, you can also purchase the full soundtrack for $9.99. Pokémon Sun & Moon are available now for the Nintendo 3DS family of handhelds.

Quick Take

So far, I've been loving my copy of Pokémon Sun! The game feels like a breath of fresh air in many ways. I haven't listened to the full soundtrack yet, but the music in-game is utterly fantastic. It's too early for me to say where I would place it in the list of soundtracks. However, suffice it to say that it's a wonderful listen. Check it out!
