Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon Will Have Past Villains, Legendaries

Posted by | News | No Comments

With Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon only two weeks away, Nintendo is teasing more new features. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will feature villains and legendary Pokémon from previous games in the series. There’s also a new Pokémon rental mode called the Battle Agency. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will launch November 17 on November 3DS.

The new villain team is called Team Rainbow Rocket. It’s made up of antagonists from previous Pokémon games, like Ghetis (Pokémon Black and White) and Lysandre (Pokémon X and Y). The leader is Giovanni, the boss of Team Rocket from the very first games, Pokémon Red and Blue. Their reasons for being in Alola are unknown but you’ll definitely be crossing paths.

In addition to the new Ultra Beasts, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will add classic Legendary Pokémon, such as Mewwo, Ho-Oh, and Lugia. Legendaries will be exclusive to either Ultra Sun or Ultra Moon. The Pokémon Company confirmed that between both games players will be able to obtain all Legendary Pokémon. The QR Scanner will also return, and the Island Scan will let you find new Pokémon in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, such as Charmander.

The new Battle Agency introduces a new concept to Pokémon: renting Pokémon for online battles. Trainers can take part in Single Battles with teams of three Pokémon each. You can unlock more rental Pokémon the more you play.

Totem Stickers are a new collectible that can be found all around the Alola region, like Zygarde cells. These stickers will power up your totem Pokémon, which differs between Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Ultra Sun can use Lurantis while Ultra Moon has a totem Salazzle.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is out November 17 on November 3DS.

Travel Beyond the Wormholes in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon

Posted by | News | No Comments

New details for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon continue to be teased out by Nintendo and The Pokémon Company in the weeks leading up to its November 17 launch.

Last year’s Pokémon Sun and Moon introduced expanded gameplay for riding Pokémon, as well as the new Ultra Beasts. Both features return in Ultra Sun and Moon. You’ll be able to ride on Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala into the Ultra Beasts’ wormhole to discover all new worlds.

One of the new worlds is called Ultra Megalopolis. It’s a darkened city that had its light stolen by Necrozma, a new Legendary Pokémon in Ultra Sun and Moon. A giant tower in the middle gives off the only light, with a mysterious someone or something at the top.

Many different worlds are available, including the home worlds of the Ultra Beasts, though no more have been announced at this time.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon introduces a new inter-dimensional faction called Ultra Recon Squad. This group comes from one of the worlds beyond the Ultra Wormhole. The story and characters will be different depending on which version you play. Ultra Sun will feature Ultra Recon characters Dulse and Zossie. Ultra Moon will star Soliera and Phyco.

With treks into the wormhole it makes sense that we’ll be seeing new Ultra Beasts as well.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra MoonUB Burst is the Fireworks Pokémon. It’s a fairly unique Fire/Ghost type. Its signature move is to, ah, explode its head. It’s only found in Ultra Sun.


Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra MoonUB Assembly is the Rampart Pokémon with a Rock/Steel typing. It looks like like a walking building, but apparently each of its stones is a separate life form. It’s unique to Ultra Moon.


Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra MoonUB Adhesive is brought by the Ultra Recon Squad. It’s known as the Poison Pin Pokémon because it shoots poisonous needles out of its head. It’s a Poison Type, obviously. UB Adhesive will be available in both Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon launches November 17 on Nintendo 3DS.
