More than 400 Pokémon will be discoverable in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo revealed that more than 400 Pokémon will be discoverable in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. Also revealed was the new feature Alola Photo Club and a brand-new Mantine Surf.

NEW DETAILS REVEALED FOR POKÉMON ULTRA SUN AND POKÉMON ULTRA MOON

Plus Pokkén Tournament DX and Pokémon Gold Version & Pokémon Silver Version are OUT NOW!

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo have revealed more details for the highly anticipated games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Trainers took part in the Island Challenge. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, the Island Challenge returns but this time some of the challenges are different and there is an additional new Trial. As players work through the Island Challenge they will be confronted with trouble involving the Legendary Pokémon Necrozma. Trainers will meet mysterious people and Pokémon as they witness the new dangers closing in on the Alola region.

More than 400 Pokémon will be discoverable in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, many of which were not available in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Some of these Pokémon will only appear depending on which version of the game is played. For example, in the same patch of tall grass where Houndoom will appear in Pokémon Ultra Sun, Manectric will appear in Pokémon Ultra Moon.

In the Alola region you can ride Pokémon in many areas and have them help you out on your journey. Now, in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon you can ride the waves on the vast ocean with Mantine, thanks to the brand-new Mantine Surf. Mantine Surf isn’t just a way to get between the islands of Alola, but it is also a sport in its own right, with Trainers competing for the highest score by pulling off a variety of radical moves. Become a pro and pull off some super cool tricks across Alola’s sea with Mantine Surf!

Another new feature making its way to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon is the Alola Photo Club. Trainers can now take photos together with their Pokémon and choose backgrounds, camera angles, Trainer outfits, poses and more to capture amazing images. After the shoot, players can decorate the photos with cool frames and over 100 different stickers to create the perfect photo. These photos can then be shared with other players through communication features on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. When players take photos with their Pokémon, their Pokémon will become more affectionate towards them.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are also scheduled to be compatible with the Pokémon Global Link, a linked website that allows users to connect with other players all over the worlds using saved and gameplay data from their Pokémon series games, when they launch globally on 17 November 2017.

Today also sees the launch of three Pokémon video games. The first of these is Pokkén Tournament DX for the Nintendo Switch Console, which includes all the content from both the Wii U and arcade versions of Pokkén Tournament. Pokkén Tournament DX introduces an array of exciting new features to create the ultimate Pokkén experience. Features include the brand new fighter Decidueye, new support Pokémon Litten and Popplio, new battle modes, daily challenges and more. Thanks to the Nintendo Switch, you can now play Pokkén anytime and anywhere. Play Pokkén Tournament DX in TV mode, handheld mode, or share a Joy-Con controller with another Trainer to battle one-on-one in tabletop mode anywhere. Pokkén Tournament DX is available to purchase at retail and in Nintendo eShop.

The second titles in the Pokémon Series, Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Silver Version, are also launching today on Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Fan favourite titles, and originally among the first mainstream RPG games to appear on the Game Boy Color, Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver continued to expand the Pokémon universe, adding 100 Pokémon, held items and real-time events, thanks to an internal game clock. Featuring wireless communication functionality, the new Virtual Console versions of the games allow Trainers to trade and battle wirelessly and both games are compatible with Pokémon Bank. Through Pokémon Bank, players will be able to bring the Pokémon that they catch in the Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver into Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon when those games launch. Fans who purchase Pokémon Gold or Pokémon Silver at retail or in Nintendo eShop before 21 September 2018 will receive a special code which will grant them the Mythical Pokémon Celebi in the Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon video games.
