2. Pokémon Rides
One of the most oft-requested features for new Pokémon games is the ability to freely ride any Pokémon while exploring and Sun and Moonfinally introduces this feature. Functioning similarly to HM moves of past games, Pokémon Rides let you summon a Pokémon to, well, ride, but the stipulation is that they cannot be used in battle. Moves like surf and fly also return, but instead of having to own a Pokémon and teach them these moves, you’re now able to rent a Pokémon that can use these abilities at any time.
