NEW POKÉMON ULTRA SUN AND POKÉMON ULTRA MOON DETAILS REVEALED!

After taking over the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo in Pokémon Ultra Sun or the Legendary Pokémon Lunala in Pokémon Ultra Moon, Necrozma will become Dusk Mane Necrozma or Dawn Wings Necrozma!

Dusk Mane Necrozma
Type: Psychic/Steel
This form of Necrozma manifests when the Pokémon takes control of both the body and mind of the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo, absorbing the light energy that pours out of it. It slices opponents with its strong claws on its four legs and it can propel itself forward by shooting black light from both sides of its chest.

Dawn Wings Necrozma
Type: Psychic/Ghost
This form of Necrozma manifests when the Pokémon takes control of the Legendary Pokémon Lunala, stealing its light energy by force. Dawn Wings Necrozma accelerates by shooting black light from its back. This Necrozma form shoots energy that glows darkly from the black parts of its wings.

SolganiumZLunaliumZ
SolganiumZ / LunaliumZ

Photon Geyser is a Psychic-type special move that only Necrozma can learn. This attack engulfs the target in a pillar of light and compares the user’s Attack and Sp. Atk stats, dealing damage to the opponent according to whichever is higher. Necrozma can also learn this move when it is in Dusk Mane form or Dawn Wings form. Alongside this new move, Solgaleo and Lunala will receive the exclusive Z-Moves Searing Sunraze Smash and Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom, respectively.

Searing Sunraze Smash is a new Steel-type Z-Move that can be used if you have a Solgaleo that knows Sunsteel Strike hold the exclusive Z-Crystal Solganium Z. This attack damages a target while ignoring any effects of the target’s Ability. Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom is a new Ghost-type Z-Move that can be used if you have a Lunala that knows Moongeist Beam hold the exclusive Z-Crystal Lunalium Z. As with Searing Sunraze Smash, this attack also damages a target while ignoring any effects of the target’s Ability. A Necrozma that knows Sunsteel Strike or Moongeist Beam and is holding the corresponding Z-Crystal will also be able to unleash Searing Sunraze Smash or Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom!

rotomrotom

The Rotom Dex returns in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon and has been powered up! Throughout your adventure, you will grow closer to the Rotom Dex the more you communicate with it, which will cause it to be more helpful. By deepening the bond with the Rotom Dex throughout the game, you will be able to get special items via the Roto Loto feature. These special items come in different varieties, with some increasing the Exp. Points that you receive for a set period of time, while others may make it easier to catch Pokémon. If you become close enough with the Rotom Dex, it will use a special power for you called Rotom’s Z-Power. This lets you use a second Z-Move in battle, even though normally players can only use one Z-Move per battle.
