Return to Alola…

Ominous dark clouds are spreading in the sky above the Alola region, the setting of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. In these adventures, a story unfolds on a grand scale, with the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo, Lunala, and Necrozma at its centre. Secrets about Necrozma and the Alola region – undisclosed in the previous games – will come to light.

…and explore worlds beyond!

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, you can explore the various worlds that lie through the Ultra Wormholes. Within an Ultra Wormhole, there are countless warp holes that lead to different worlds. Try exploring different worlds by passing through these warp holes. You can even go to the home worlds of the mysterious Ultra Beasts!

Meet the Ultra Recon Squad

The Ultra Recon Squad is a mysterious group that has come from a world that lies beyond an Ultra Wormhole. For what purpose have they come to the Alola region? Players will see the story told from somewhat different perspectives in each version, with Dulse and Zossie playing a central role in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Soliera and Phyco (pictured left) taking that role in Pokémon Ultra Moon.

Discover more than 400 Pokémon

More than 400 Pokémon will be discoverable in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, many of which were not available in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Some of these Pokémon will only appear depending on which version of the game is played. For example, in the same patch of tall grass where Houndoom will appear in Pokémon Ultra Sun, Manectric will appear in Pokémon Ultra Moon.

You’ll also encounter new Ultra Beasts on your adventures around Alola!

Island Challenges revisited

The island challenge is a ritual passed down in the Alola region. Its intention is to help children grow into full-fledged Pokémon Trainers. Some trials in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon seem to play out in different ways than they did in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. There’s even a new trial with Mina, one of the captains who serve as guides for these trials.

10 new things to enjoy in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon is full of fresh content, new Pokémon to encounter and worlds to explore. We caught up with Mr Shigeru Ohmori, Director of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, and Mr Kazumasa Iwao, Director of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, from GAME FREAK to discuss 10 new features you'll find in your next Pokémon adventure.

CI_3DS_PokemonUltraMoon_Developers_01.jpg

A brand new tale

Secrets about Necrozma and the Alola region come to light in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, with a new story unfolding on a grand scale. Necrozma has transformed into two new forms: Dusk Mane Necrozma, who took over Solgalao, and Dawn Wings Necrozma, who took over Lunala.

“There are new Pokémon and characters coming into the game,” explains Mr Iwao, “there’s quite a big story change that you can get into. We feel that this will make it a quite fresh experience for people who have played Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. There are also returning characters like Hau and Lillie who you’ll see a different side of this time around.”

On top of this there are an additional 100 events that you will encounter as you go through the world that were not in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

New Pokémon arrive in Alola with over 400 to encounter!

This isn’t the Alola you thought you knew. As you’re out exploring Alola in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon you’ll encounter Pokémon new to the region that didn’t appear in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, like, UB Adhesive, UB Assembly and UB Burst.

“In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon there are over 400 different Pokémon from the entire series that you can catch, so there’s really a lot to enjoy,” explains Mr Iwao, “also, Mewtwo will be appearing this time around so you can hopefully get to find him and catch him!

Explore the Ultra Wormhole and visit the home worlds of the mysterious Ultra Beasts!

Ride on the backs of the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala to travel through an Ultra Wormhole and reach the worlds that lie beyond!

“The Ultra Wormhole is a new feature that you can go into and explore,” Mr Ohmori says, “as part of that you can go into the worlds where the Ultra Beasts are from, so as part of the story within the game itself this mystery of the Ultra Beasts really comes to the forefront.”

What will you discover inside the Ultra Wormhole?

All the Legendary Pokémon join the fight!

Some of the Legendary Pokémon that you can encounter differ, depending on which game you’re playing. By exploring both Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, you can encounter and catch all the Legendary Pokémon that appeared in previous Pokémon series games.

A powered-up Rotom Dex

The Rotom Dex is a Pokédex but with a Rotom inside! In your new adventure you’ll grow closer to Rotom the more you communicate with it, and as you do, it will come to help you more on your journey. If you become close enough with Rotom, it’ll use a special power for you called Rotom’s Z-Power that allows you to use a second Z-Move in battle, even though you’re normally limited to using only one per battle. There’s also Roto Loto, which you can see in the video below.

Mina’s new trial

Some island challenges in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon play out in different ways than they did in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. What’s more, there’s even a brand new trial with Mina, one of the captains who serve as guides for these trials.

A special Rockruff

A new form of Lycanroc appears in the world of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon known as Dusk Form Lycanroc. The colours of Dusk Form Lycanroc’s body and eyes differ from those of previously discovered Lycanroc, known as Midday Form and Midnight Form.

Only special Rockruff can evolve into a Dusk Form Lycanroc, and neither this Rockruff nor Dusk Form Lycanroc can be caught in normal gameplay. You will be able to receive a special Rockruff* that can evolve into Dusk Form Lycanroc via Nintendo Network from November 17th 2017, until January 10th 2018.
