Many of you are likely getting stuck into Pokémon Sun and Moon right now, at least if you're fortunate to be in one of the regions where it's already arrived. There's a lot to take in, with the new gen in the series introducing a range of new features and mechanics.

One of these is Poké Pelago, and though you may initially think little of it, it's actually well worth your time to put it to work. Our video man and Pokémaniac Alex Olney breaks down why in the guide video below, helping you to get the most out of the feature.

If you enjoyed that be sure check out our lovely Nintendo Life YouTube channel, and also our Pokémon Sun and Moon review.
