With about 1 week away from release of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon releasing, some more news has been released. There will be NO SPOILERS in this post, so you don’t have to worry about seeing information that hasn’t been officially revealed.
Team Rocket is making a return to “Unite all peoples within our nation.” Giovanni has enlisted the help of every leader of every Antagonist team since the beginning of Pokemon to help him in his schemes. Who knows what they are scheming in the new game.
A new feature in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is the Battle Agency. This is a place that allows you to rent powerful Pokemon from the agency and participate in single battles. The more you mingle with other trainers the more rental Pokemon become available. In the screenshots it shows the player reaching rank or “grade” 9 and receiving a gold bottle cap, which also confirms Hyper Training is returning.
While on your journey around Alola, keep your eye out for Totem Stickers. These stickers allow you to obtain certain Pokemon in their Totem size. There are three known Pokemon you can obtain this way: Gumshoos, Lurantis – (Ultra Sun exclusive), and Salazzle – (Ultra Moon Exclusive). As far as I can tell, all these Pokemon are given to you by various people once you collect enough stickers.
The Island Scan feature is returning to Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. New Pokemon will be able to be found using this feature that weren’t available in Sun and Moon. The three shown are Charmander, Grovyle, and Greninja.
Legendary Pokemon Appearing
When exploring through the Ultra Wormholes, not only can you find many Ultra Beasts, but you can also find EVERY SINGLE LEGENDARY ever available!!! Yes, some legendaries are version exclusive, and some require you to have specific Pokemon in your party. Between both games, you are able to capture every legendary Pokemon (not mythical Pokemon for those questioning it). Here is a list of the version exclusive legendaries, and legendaries that require certain Pokemon in your party:
Pokemon Ultra Sun:
Pokemon Ultra Moon:
Require Special Pokemon (available in both versions):
- Suicune (with Raikou and Entei present)
- Rayquaza (with Groudon and Kyogre present)
- Giratina (with Dialga and Palkia present)
- Kyurem (with Reshiram and Zekrom present)
- Landorus (with Tornadus and Thundurus present)
As of today, press copies of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have been released to select people (mostly people at large sites to review the game before launch). If you wish to not be spoiled, then beware of posts you read. We will not post any spoilers on our site before launch, only if it is officially revealed. Nevertheless, there will be some cool surprises in store for people who stay away from spoilers!
