THE SECRET OF NECROZMA—NEW INFORMATION ANNOUNCED FOR POKÉMON ULTRA SUN AND POKÉMON ULTRA MOON!

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo today announced new details for the upcoming games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon.

p>London, United Kingdom — 14 November 2017 — The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo today announced new details for the upcoming games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon.

 

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, the Legendary Pokémon Necrozma takes on the overwhelmingly powerful form of Dusk Mane Necrozma or of Dawn Wings Necrozma by capturing the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo or Lunala. More of the mysterious Pokémon Necrozma will soon be uncovered, as a new image of Necrozma enveloped in bright light has been revealed. What kind of secret does Necrozma hold? All will become clear throughout players’ adventures across Alola!

 

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, players will be able to teach their Pokémon moves in exchange for Battle Points (BP)—moves that they would not be able to learn by leveling up or through any Technical Machine TM. Players can earn BP by winning battles in the Alola region’s battle facilities, such as the Battle Royal Dome and the Battle Tree, or by using Mantine Surf from various beaches. Players can teach moves to the Pokémon that travel with them on their journey or even to the Legendary Pokémon that they catch passing through the Ultra Wormhole.

 

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon will launch this Friday, 17 November, exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. A special 3DS theme will also release on the same day. For more details about today’s announcement, please visit Pokemon.co.uk/UltraSunMoon.
