Pokemon Sun and Moon Statistics and Facts

Like I am known to do at times, I recently sat down to find out just how popular the new Pokemon games really are. Here are the most interesting Pokemon Sun and Moon statistics I was able to dig up so far, with much more to come soon. As always, be sure to check back in the future as I will be updating this post as new and updated stats become available.
