Only a few days left until the worldwide release of POKÉMON Ultra Sun and Moon! As fans begin the countdown, the official YouTube channel has released a new and potentially the last trailer for the franchise’s latest games. Check it out below!

Even More to Look Forward To!

It’s short, but it teases tantalizing new gameplay aspects and storyline mysteries. One aspect it introduces is Battle Points, which players can collect and then use to teach their Pokémon new moves.  According to the Official Sun and Moon website, moves taught through Battle Points are not available through leveling up or TMs. Players can earn Battle Points by winning battles in certain facilities, such as the Battle Tree, or by using Mantine Surf from various beaches.

The trailer also teases certain secrets surrounding Necrozma. For those unaware, Necrozma is a Legendary Pokémon that first appeared in Sun and Moon. By absorbing Solgaleo or Lunala, the mascot Legendaries for those games, Necrozma can take on a Dusk Mane or Dawn Wings form respectively. Those alternate forms are the mascot Legendaries for Ultra Sun and Moon.

The trailer hints at a new form for Necrozma, as well as a new battle option called Ultra Burst. Ultra Burst seems to be available for both Dusk Mane Necrozma and Dawn Wings Necrozma. What exactly it is or does remains to be seen.

Prepare for a New Adventure

As the release date nears, more and more juicy bits of information have been revealed. Already, we know that Lillie returns as a trainer, and Guzma acts as the player’s ally. Promotional trailers and posters also emphasize that the upcoming games will take a much darker tone than Sun and Moon did. With brand new battle options and gameplay aspects added as well, POKÉMON sure seems intent on proving that Ultra Sun and Moon is more than just a rehash of its predecessors. POKÉMON Ultra Sun and Moon will feature an alternate storyline from its prequels. It will include new player designs, Ultra Beasts, Z-Moves, areas to explore, and more.

Ultra Sun and Moon will release worldwide on November 17, 2017 for the Nintendo 3DS.
