Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon – Trailers

Here’s the launch trailers for the game:

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon – Pokémon Bank

Wondering when you will be able to use the Pokémon Bank (and Poké Transporter) with your brand new Pokémon game? The answer is… not today, unfortunately. The Pokémon Company has announced that the app would get an update in Late November, adding compatibility with Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. But in the mean time, you can still use Pokémon Bank with Pokémon Sun and Moon, obviously.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon – Global Mission

Today, the first Gloal Mission for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon went live. It rurns until November 27th, and has players try to catch as many Pokémon as possible: 10 million, to be precise. There’s 2 000 Festival Coins for you to get if the mission is successful (only 1 000 if it’s not), with rewards x2 if you link your copy of the game to the Pokémon Global Link (not mandatory).

Pokémon Duel

Today, a new event went live in Pokémon Duel: the Queen’s Cup. It runs until November 20th, and allows you to earn a Shiny Ho-Oh figure. To get it, you need to battle against other players online, and earn enough points to afford the figure.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon – Mii Plaza

In order to celebrate the release of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Shigeru Ohmori and Kazumasa Iwao will drop by your Mii Plaza on Nintendo 3DS, provided you have SpotPass activated.
