(Though, this was probably mostly an issue for me, because I went in blind, and so actually expected a sequel...)

    But, yeah. The difficulty is definitely higher, and if you stick with the same team throughout, I guarantee you'll probably run into at least an handful of battles that give you trouble. (Especially if you have Set Battle on, rather than Shift.)
    Do you need to have played Sun/Moon first or can you pick it up and play it without knowing them?

    The game makes a couple assumptions on the part of the player having played the first games (mainly on the nature of Ultra Beasts and ultra Space, which are discussed openly as if the player would pretty much know what they are), but, on the whole, there is no need to play the first games. So, there might be a few little things, but it's essentially a completely self-contained thing.

    Frankly, I played through the first game and still don't really know what Ultra Beasts and Ultra Space is, so I think that's pretty safe. Didn't help that I'd kind of zoned out by that point, since I didn't expect to watch a full-length movie

    Cuthalion makes great avatars. Like my Silver Dragon.

    Pokemon from an AU world and the AU world, respectivly. One that has differant reality from the timelines the Pokemon Games have been in, resulting in Pokemon who really only tangenitally resemble the main realities Pokemon.
