Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon were the most prolific announcements to come from this week’s Pokémon Direct aside from the Nintendo Switch’s Pokkén Tournament DX. While details are scarce, here’s what’s confirmed.
POKÉMON ULTRA SUN AND UNTRA MOON COMING TO NINTENDO 3DS
The version mascots for the original Sun and Moon, Solgaleo and Lunala, appear to each have new forms. Suspiciously, the added features bear a considerable resemblance to Necrozma. Interestingly, the trailer also seems to sport a new Z-Ring.
Aside from those very visible embellishments, the new pair of games will contain “new additions to the story and features from Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.”
Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are slated for a worldwide release on November 17. Personally, as much as I enjoyed Sun, I’m weary about another Alola adventure a year after the first. Hopefully Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will contain a worthwhile amount of enhancements and tweaks to the originals.
