Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon
Today, The Pokémon Company announced that players would be able to catch various Legendary Pokémon (such as Mewtwo) via the Ultra Wormholes. We don’t quite know how you will get to meet those Pokémon, and how many of them are hiding in there, but we will probably find out pretty soon!
Also, in an interview with IGN, Shigeru Ohmori explained that Game Freak were treating Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon as the “culmination” of their work on Nintendo 3DS, and confirmed that it would be the last mainline entry on the system:
“With Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon,” explains Ohmori, “we’ve tried to eke that out more and really, really push the system to its absolute limits, and we’re now feeling that perhaps this is the maximum of what we can get out. So we’re really treating Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon as the culmination of our work with the 3DS system.”

Also, an interview published in Famitsu magazine this week allows us to get some more details about the game. In this interview, Game Freak confirmed that the game has more meaty post-game story content, with the story itself being twice as long as the one in Pokémon Sun and Moon. The game is also said to feature more changes than Pokémon Emeral and Pokémon Platinum.
But that’s not all: the interview also mentions features that make it easier to catch and train Pokémon, and that there’s still details that are yet to be revealed.
Heads up for players with an Amazon device: Magikarp Jump is now available on the Amazon App Store. Naturally, it’s the exact same game as on Android and iOS!
