GAME FREAK Game Designer Shigeru Ohmori was interviewed by IGN and he confirmed that Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will be the last main series Pokémon RPG games on the Nintendo 3DS. It was announced earlier in the year that a new Pokémon title was in development for the Nintendo Switch for release in 2018.

Below are Interview quotes:
"When we were making Pokemon X and Y, we really were trying to push the 3DS system to its absolute limits - which is what we thought we’d done. But when Sun and Moon came around, we completely redesigned the system, and actually ended up pushing the 3DS even further to what we thought was the most we could draw out of it."

"With Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon," explains Ohmori, "we’ve tried to eke that out more and really, really push the system to its absolute limits, and we’re now feeling that perhaps this is the maximum of what we can get out. So we’re really treating Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon as the culmination of our work with the 3DS system."

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.

BEYOND THE ULTRA WORMHOLES! MORE NEW DETAILS REVEALED FOR POKÉMON ULTRA SUN AND POKÉMON ULTRA MOON

In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, Ultra Wormholes were strange pockets of space that mysteriously appeared throughout the Alola region and were shrouded in mystery. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, these Ultra Wormholes return and players can ride on the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala to travel through them to reach the various worlds that lie beyond. Players can visit many different worlds via these Ultra Wormholes—including Ultra Megalopolis! The world of Ultra Megalopolis is a place that has had its light stolen by Necrozma. Within this world, a mysterious tower-like building shines with brilliant light but whatever waits at the top of this structure is currently unknown.

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon players will meet the Ultra Recon Squad, a strange group that have come from a world that lives beyond an Ultra Wormhole. Players will see the story told from different perspective in each version of the game, with Dulse and Zossie playing a central role in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Soliera and Phyco taking that role in Pokémon Ultra Moon. The Ultra Recon Squad bring with them a new Ultra Beast—UB Adhesive.

UB Adhesive
Type: Poison
This Ultra Beast’s head is filled with venom and it shoots this venom out from the poisonous needle on the top of its head. It is said to be intelligent enough to understand human speech and displays many emotions.

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, players will be able to meet other new Ultra Beasts in addition to UB Adhesive. In Pokémon Ultra Sun, players will able to meet UB Burst, while in Pokémon Ultra Moon, it will be UB Assembly.

UB Burst
Type: Fire/Ghost
UB Burst has a head made up of a collection of curious sparks, which it can remove and make explode. It tricks targets into letting their guard down with its funny behaviour then, when its opponent is close, it surprises them by blowing up its head without warning.

UB Assembly
Type: Rock/Steel
This Ultra Beast is a collection of many life-forms. While it appears to be made up of stones stacked atop one another, each “stone” is in fact a separate life-form. When confronting opponents, the eyes on each of its stones begin to glow bright red.
