Since I was a kid, I enjoyed😋 playing Pokémon Sun and Moon in Generation Seven. My friend missed out on all the games on the 3DS since he could not afford them, and he wondered if Game Freak would release Sun and Moon on the Nintendo Switch.
He wanted to purchase a 3DS to play the game, but since I have been into Pokémon for years and played games on the Switch generations, I knew it was impossible to get Sun and Moon on the Nintendo Switch.
So, let’s find out if you can get Sun and Moon on Switch.
How to Play Pokémon sun and moon on Nintendo Switch?
Pokémon Sun and Moon🌚 cannot be played directly on Nintendo Switch since they are part of the seventh generation of Pokémon games.
You cannot play it on Nintendo Switch because Game Freak, the developer of the mainline Pokémon series, released Pokémon Sun and Moon for the Nintendo 3DS system.
Since Pokémon Sun and Moon is a 3DS game, the Nintendo Switch does not have backward compatibility.
You should note that the Pokémon franchise has produced enhanced versions of Pokémon sun and moon games known as Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon for the 3DS.
The Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon versions have extra content and features compared to the original Pokémon Sun and Moon.
Therefore, if you want to play Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon on Switch, you will require a Nintendo 3DS or 2DS system.
