Pokemon Sun & Moon Goes Too Far For Nintendo 3DS

By  | 

If you have been looking forward to being able to download a digital copy of the Pokemon Sun or Moon for the Nintendo 3DS you might want to get a bigger SD card as it seems that the developer has gone a big too far for the 3DS.

We say this as it has been revealed that Pokemon Sun and Moon happen to big enough to blow the stock 3DS SD card out of the water. Each of them is 3.2GB, while the stock card is 4GB that comes with the Nintendo 3DS. This means that there is going to be very little room for any other applications. If you wanted to put both Sun and Moon onto the card, it wouldn’t fit.

Nintendo did say that players who downloaded the demo versions will not be able to move any data they saved onto the Pokemon Sun and Moon game that they buy. This is down to the fact that the standard card doesn’t offer the space to hold both the full version and the demo.

Pokemon Sun and Moon is going to use up more room on the SD card than the Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire games as each were 1.8GB.

So has Pokemon Sun and Moon gone too far when it comes to storage on the Nintendo 3DS and what do you feel about having to go out and buy an additional bigger SD card?

    Considering that SD and microSD cards are down to under 30 cents per gigabyte, and moving content to a new card is simple, this is a non-problem. Spend $10 and get a 32GB card and be done with it. If you can afford the new Pokémon games, you can certainly afford a cheap SD card.

    Does anybody remember the days when you had to spend $50 on an 8MB memory card just for your save files for the PlayStation 1 and 2?

    This is minor. With SD cards about $8 for 8 GB, who cares when you’re spending around $40 for the game.
