A new trailer for Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon has arrived, bringing with it new information about trainers’ new quests in and around the Alola region. It seems that in this new take on the original Sun and Moon story, players will be able to travel out of the tropical paradise and into the world that is home to the mysterious Ultra Beasts themselves.
When the games launch in mid-November, trainers will embark on a trip through an Ultra Wormhole, on the back of a legendary Pokemon no less, arriving in the heart of Ultra Beasts territory. Here, Pokemon Ultra Sun or Ultra Moon players can visit Ultra Megalopolis, a world devoid of light, thanks to the actions of the villainous Necrozma.
Previously we learned that Necrozma is responsible for Solgaleo and Lunala’s new appearances, as the Prism Pokemon absorbs the game’s legendary creature to either become Dusk Main Necrozma or Dawn Wing Necrozma. Now it seems even more likely that the powerful creature will act as the title’s primary antagonist, although there are other challenges to fight along the way.
One such challenge comes in the form of the newly-revealed Ultra Recon Squad who have somehow found their way into the new world of darkness as well. Dulse, Zossie, Phyco, and Soliera may not have the style of Team Skull but the mysterious new individuals are sure to crop up and challenge the player just as regularly. Interestingly, it seems that the team will be in control of at least one Ultra Beast of their own as the new UB Adhesive is revealed to be (at least initially) under the Recon Squad’s command.
Other new beasts such as UB Burst and UB Assembly will also be present in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, alongside the previously introduced creatures. It’s unclear as to whether Ultra Beast acquisition will be a part of the title’s endgame once again, or whether this time it will be a main focus for the protagonist but the classic gym system looks to still not be part of the Alola experience.
In other Pokemon news, players who want to add a Celebi to their starting line-up in Pokemon Ultra Sun or Ultra Moon are in luck as there is now an easy way to get hold of the time-travelling legendary. To receive a level 30 Celebi, Pokemon fans must purchase the new re-release of Pokemon Gold or Pokemon Silver which will then give them a redeemable code for the upcoming game’s Mystery Gift function.
Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon release on November 17, exclusively on Nintendo 3DS.
