THE SECRET OF NECROZMA—NEW INFORMATION ANNOUNCED FOR POKÉMON ULTRA SUN AND POKÉMON ULTRA MOON!

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, the Legendary Pokémon Necrozma takes on the overwhelmingly powerful form of Dusk Mane Necrozma or of Dawn Wings Necrozma by capturing the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo or Lunala. More of the mysterious Pokémon Necrozma will soon be uncovered, as a new image of Necrozma enveloped in bright light has been revealed. What kind of secret does Necrozma hold? All will become clear throughout players’ adventures across Alola!

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.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon will launch this Friday, 17 November, exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. A special 3DS theme will also release on the same day.

Niantic Attempts to Reassure Pokémon GO Fans that New Features are Coming in 2018

It has been a disappointing year for Pokémon GO fans with event issues and event cancellations. Very few new features have been added to Pokémon GO in 2017 after a hugely successful 2016 and now Niantic has announced they are working on a new game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite despite many core Pokémon franchise gameplay features such as PvP Battling and Trading still not in the game.

In July, CEO John Hanke of Niantic was interviewed by Andrew Webster of The Verge to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of Pokémon Go and it was revealed that development of Pokémon GO was already 6 months behind schedule. In September, Pokémon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara in an interview with Bloomberg Technology stated that Pokémon GO is only 10 percent complete. This has many fans of the game extremely concerned that with Niantic shifting development to a new game, it will affect the the development of Pokémon GO. Niantic has attempted to quell these concerns with a blog post stating that there are "amazing features in 2018".

Looking ahead

Trainers, Just like many of you, we're super excited about Harry Potter: Wizards Unite and are working hard with our partners at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and WB Games San Francisco’s development team to bring that to life. However, we–the Pokémon GO development team–want to say that we are 100% committed to creating an ever-changing and growing game that gets our players exploring, meeting each other, and deepening their connection to the Pokémon universe. We're actively expanding the Pokémon GO development team to build many more amazing features in 2018. Stay tuned for an update next week on upcoming improvements to certain features.

Our Ingress, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, and Pokémon GO development teams are all hiring. You can take a look at our postings and apply online here.

Thanks, The Pokémon GO development team

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo today revealed new details for the upcoming games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. Mimikyu will have a Fairy-type Z-Move, Let’s Snuggle Forever and can be accessed through the new Mimikium Z Z-Crystal.


A NEW Z-MOVE FOR MIMIKYU! NEW DETAILS REVEALED FOR POKÉMON ULTRA SUN AND POKÉMON ULTRA MOON

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo today revealed new details for the upcoming games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon.

The Ghost- and Fairy-type Pokémon Mimikyu was first discovered in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. There are many mysteries surrounding this Pokémon, which lives its entire life hidden beneath a rag. Because of its desire to get closer to people, Mimikyu began to disguise itself as a popular Pokémon—Pikachu. Mimikyu can manipulate its rag so the cloth takes on the shape or design Mimikyu imagines, and it will protect Mimikyu from an enemy attack—but only once.

Now, in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, Mimikyu will have a Fairy-type Z-Move, Let’s Snuggle Forever, if Mimikyu knows the move Play Rough and is given a piece of the Z-Crystal Mimikium Z to hold. Up until now, Mimikyu’s Play Rough could only be powered up into the Z-Move Twinkle Tackle if Mimikyu was holding a piece of Fairium Z. Thanks to the addition of the new Mimikium Z, the Let’s Snuggle Forever Z-Move that can also be unleashed in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon is very powerful and even outshines Twinkle Tackle.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon launch on November 17, exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

interview

With the impending release of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, we are growing more and more excited about making a return trip to the Alola region. To learn more about our upcoming expedition, we turned to GAME FREAK, the developers of the game, for a little extra insight. We were lucky enough to chat with Kazumasa Iwao, the director of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, and Shigeru Ohmori, the director of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon and current producer of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, who both shared their experiences and thought processes about designing the latest journey into the wonderful world of Pokémon.
