The thread title still makes me chuckle.
I thought about starting him out on the Pokémon Sun on 3DS. I wouldn’t mind trying it out too. I’ve never played a Pokémon game.
My rule of thumb is if you've never played a Pokemon game before, start on the latest version which in your case would be Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon on the 3DS. That way all the Pokemon and mechanics are new and fresh and you don't have conflicting issues with previous gameplay. Us older guys who started with Red and Blue on the original game-boy have a harder time adjusting with every new interation IMO.
Do Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon only work on the newest 3DS? I think we have the XL. I remember reading Minecraft and a couple other games only work on the 3DS that came out recently.
