The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo today announced new details for the upcoming games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon.
In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, players will be able to teach their Pokémon moves in exchange for Battle Points (BP)—moves that they would not be able to learn by leveling up or through any Technical Machine TM. Players can earn BP by winning battles in the Alola region’s battle facilities, such as the Battle Royal Dome and the Battle Tree, or by using Mantine Surf from various beaches. Players can teach moves to the Pokémon that travel with them on their journey or even to the Legendary Pokémon that they catch passing through the Ultra Wormhole.
New details on the Legendary Pokémon Necrozma have also been revealed. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, Necrozma takes on the overwhelmingly powerful form of Dusk Mane Necrozma or of Dawn Wings Necrozma by capturing the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo or Lunala. What kind of secret does Necrozma hold? All will become clear throughout players’ adventures across Alola.
In addition, to celebrate the upcoming launch of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon for the Nintendo 3DS, new avatar outfit items from the Alola region are now available in Pokémon GO. Beginning today, Trainers can dress their Pokémon GO avatars in the colorful tropical outfits worn by the main male and female characters featured in the upcoming games.
Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon will launch this Friday, November 17, exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS.
