Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon – Alola Region

As mentioned in a previous report, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon has you travel to different worlds, via Ultra Wormholes. But it’s not just Ultra Beats that you will find there: some Legendary Pokémon, such as Mewtwo, Ho-Oh, Lugia, and… pretty much all the Legendary Pokémon from past generations can be found in those worlds.

Of course, there’s the usual twist: you can only encounter some of those Legendary Pokémon in a given version, and if you want them all, you will need to either trade with friends, or get both games. Also, some of them only appear if you fulfill special conditions: for example, you need to have both Dialga and Palkia to encounter Giratina.

Here’s some more examples of Pokémon that require special conditions to be fulfilled (in that case, you need specific Pokémon in your party):

  • Suicune (with Raikou and Entei present)
  • Rayquaza (with Groudon and Kyogre present)
  • Giratina (with Dialga and Palkia present)
  • Kyurem (with Reshiram and Zekrom present)
  • Landorus (with Tornadus and Thundurus present)

Here’s the Legendary Pokémon appearing in Pokémon Ultra Sun:

  • Ho-Oh
  • Raikou
  • Groudon
  • Latios
  • Dialga
  • Heatran
  • Reshiram
  • Tornadus
  • Xerneas

And here’s the Legendary Pokémon appearing in Pokémon Ultra Moon:

  • Lugia
  • Entei
  • Kyogre
  • Latias
  • Palkia
  • Regigigas
  • Zekrom
  • Thundurus
  • Yveltal

By the way, some of those Pokémon can change forms, via various phenomena such as Mega Evolution, or Primal Reversion for example.

But it’s not just Legendary Pokémon that are invadid the Alola region.. Team Rainbow Rocket also is! This very special team is made up of the bosses from past Pokémon games, and is led by the one and only Giovanni (leader of Team Rocket in Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow), who gathered them all. What could they all be after, in the Alola region? You will have to play the game to find out for yourself!

Here’s the various bosses:

  • Team Rocket Boss Giovanni

Giovanni is the boss of Team Rocket, which made its debut in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue.He schemes to commit many evil deeds using the Pokémon of the world. While he’s the boss of Team Rocket, he was also the Gym Leader of the Viridian City Gym, and he stood in the hero’s way countless times.

  • Team Magma Boss Maxie

Maxie is the boss of Team Magma, an villainous organization that appeared in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire.He schemed to use the power of the Legendary Pokémon Groudon to dry up the seas and expand the lands, with the goal of increasing the space available to be used by those living on the land. He seems calm and collected, but he is ruthless—he will show no mercy to those who stand in his way.

  • Team Aqua Boss Archie

Archie is the boss of Team Aqua, an villainous organization that appeared in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire.He tried to bring great rains down upon the land, borrowing the power of the Legendary Pokémon Kyogre in his hopes of expanding the sea, which is the source of all life. While he brims with empathy in his attempts to restore nature for the sake of Pokémon, he will use force to overwhelm anyone who’s in the way of his realizing his ideal world.

  • Team Galactic Boss Cyrus

Cyrus is the boss of Team Galactic, the villainous organization that appeared in Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl.Believing that the human heart is imperfect, Cyrus held a desire to use the power of the Legendary Pokémon Dialga or Palkia to erase the current world and create a perfect new world. He always conducts himself in a cool and logical way, and he is greatly trusted by his subordinates in Team Galactic.

  • Team Plasma Boss Ghetsis

Ghetsis is the boss of Team Plasma, the villainous organization that appeared in Pokémon Black and Pokémon White.He planned to use the powers of the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram or Zekrom—as well as a boy called N, who is able to understand the hearts of Pokémon—to realize his desire that only his team should have Pokémon and should rule over all those without Pokémon. He speaks politely and acts like a gentleman, but he also shows glimpses of a cruel side—treating N, a boy he raised as if N were his own son, like a monster.

  • Team Flare Boss Lysandre

Lysandre is the boss of Team Flare, the villainous organization that appeared in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.He is, by nature, a man of deep sympathies—but he has been driven to despair by watching humans fighting and struggling against one another, and he comes to believe that the only way for people to live in beauty, without strife or struggle, is by reducing the number of people living in the world. He restored the ultimate weapon, which had been sealed away 3,000 years earlier, and then, using the power of the Legendary Pokémon Xerneas or Yveltal, he attempted to eradicate life.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon – Cool Features

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will introduce a new facility called the Battle Agency. There, you can take part in Single Battles using powerful Pokémon that you rent. You get three Pokémon, and your goal is to defeat those of your opponents, in order to become the best of all the “agents” at the Battle Agency.

The more you mingle with other players around you or over the internet, the more Pokémon you can rent. What’s more, if you connect with “formidable” players, you can then rent powerful Pokémon.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will also feature Totem Stickers, that can be found all around Alola. You can easily spot them, as they glitter and shine in the field. If you collect enough of those stickers, you can get a Totem Pokémon for your team (the Pokémon you can get depend on the number of tickets you’ve collected).

Also, the Totem Pokémon you can get vary depending on the version you’re playing. For example, you can only get Lurantis in Pokémon Ultra Sun, and Salazzle in Pokémon Ultra Moon.

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the Rotom got some brand new features, but those from Pokémon Sun and Moon are still there. For example, the QR Scanner is back, and by scanning QR Codes you can get more information about a given Pokémon.

Of course, Island Scan is also back. By scanning QR Codes, you store up points (10 for a regular QR Code, 20 for a special one), and once you have 100 points, you can use the Island Scan function. This allows you to scan the island you’re currently on, in order to find rare Pokémon that are normally not encountered in the Alola region: Charmander, Grovyle, Greninja, and more!

By the way, the next set of details for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will be on November 9th (North America) / November 10th (Europe, Japan)!

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon (3DS) comes out on November 17th in Europe and North America.
