It's the moment you've all been waiting for. The Pokémon Sun and Moon demo is now live for everyone to play. The free demo released yesterday for some parts of the world and also inadvertently leaked nearly the entire Pokédex through data-mining. As of this morning, North America can now play it.

The demo offers a first look at the Alolan islands and the new Pokémon that will launch with the game. It also introduces you to the exclusive Ash-Greninja, who appeared in the animated series. If you complete the demo, you'll receive Ash's Greninja, which will carry over to the full game when it launches in November.

You can check out the demo from Nintendo's eShop or their game store, and it takes up 380MB. There are no limits on how many times you can play it, but the game will offer special rewards for playing on certain days.

Stay tuned though. Information has been trickling in, such as teaser trailers last week, and we're hearing that another announcement is due on October 27 at 6am PDT according to the Japanese Pokémon site. We can't wait to hear what it could be.

Pokémon Sun and Moon will officially launch on November 18 for $39.99 each. Make sure you have enough space, since the full game will be a whopping 3.2GB.

Which starter are you going for when Sun & Moon finally releases?
