The Journey Continues in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

You heard it right folks, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are coming to stores near you on the 17th of November 2017.

In the past week, Nintendo have cancelled the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remakes and replaced them with the Sun and Moon sequels. The news first appeared on Nintendo’s very own online newspaper named the Nintendo Direct. Pokémon fans across the globe went wild about the news.

The report also included a trailer. This trailer included the new and amazing Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon but also a game coming to the Nintendo Switch, imported from the WII U named Pokken tournament. (Pokken tournament is a game about battling with Pokémon. It is basically a Pokémon version of Super Smash Bros. but that isn’t what this is about.)

The part of the trailer that showed Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon revealed a possible new Z-ring coloured black and the player twisting the crystal to release the Z-Move. The trailer also leaked possible exclusive Z-moves for Lycanroc, Mimikyu and Togedemaru. For non-Pokémon fans that must of sounded like a lot of nonsense, but to fans that should of made a lot of sense.

Another thing that can be clearly seen is the new versions of Solgaleo and Lunala. By comparing the new models of the legendaries with the third legendary in the regular games by the name of Necrozma, it can be clearly seen that the new Solgaleo and Lunala are something to do with Necrozma, as they are seen with black Necrozma armouring on parts of their bodies. The new Lunala has been given a complete light blue coating on its body (apart from the black Necrozma armour) and the new Solgaleo has been given a bright white skin with multiple yellow patterns across him.

The Alolan starters are still the same (Popplio, Rowlet and Litten).

In the end, this is just like Pokémon Black and White, then the next year came Black 2 and White 2.


Are you excited?
