Since their reveal, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have had fans worried that these games were going to be mere remakes of the latest generation, slightly updated with a bit of new content but largely remaining the same experiences as Sun and Moon were. The Pokémon Company has been slowly doling out details on the changes to these new games, however, and now they’ve hit us with some major reveals that may just dispel your fears. It looks like these new games will feature massive changes after all, with tons of new storylines as well as whole new worlds you can discover via the Ultra Wormhole.

The main story trailer is only available in Japanese, but it certainly looks and sounds epic enough on its own, featuring hints of entire new locations and content. A second new trailer released this morning has expanded on these hints immensely, revealing tons of brand new content. Once players have their game’s legendary beast on their team—Solgaleo or Lunala—they’ll be able to ride them through the Ultra Wormhole itself, entering the worlds of the Ultra Beasts and battling them on their home turf. A new team, the Ultra Recon Squad, gets highlighted, as does the world from which they come. Yes, this team is from an entirely different reality known as the Ultra Megalopolis—a place described as “a world where Necrozma has stolen the light.”

Necrozma itself also plays quite the role in these trailers, especially the story one, where we see it doing battle with Lunala, possessing Solgaleo, and possibly (it’s kind of hard to tell) being encountered atop the massive tower in the Ultra Megalopolis. There’s plenty more in these trailers to get excited about—new Ultra Beasts, new characters, even more fascinating teases for the plot—so make sure to give them a watch below!

We’ll have to wait and see what more these games have in store for us, but one thing’s for certain: these are definitely not just minor remakes. What do you think of these new trailers? Have they finally gotten you excited for
Ultra Sun and Moon? Why can’t they ever release the really epic Pokémon trailers in English? Give us your thoughts in the comments!

Our Verdict


Bottom

Tyler Meehan
Tyler is verbose. He apologizes for that. Tyler "Alpha" Meehan's first experiences with gaming came from his cousins' NES and the Mario games that went with it. They were fun, but merely brief distractions while on the road (yes, they had an NES in their car. It was awesome, and he was jealous). Still, nothing compared to his Star Wars books. OR SO HE THOUGHT. His love of gaming truly began when he and a friend came together to beat the Nintendo 64's Mission: Impossible, a challenge so intense that Tyler bought his own console to facilitate its defeat. Upon being introduced to Ocarina of Time (an introduction that included, among other spoilers, the freakin' final boss fight. GEEZ, PHILIP), his lot in life as a Nintendo fanboy was sealed in stone. His ability to recall absolutely useless video game information served him well during the Pokémon craze, and helped him aid numerous friends in their own endeavors to defeat games like Majora's Mask and Kingdom Hearts. Those were good days. Good days... The Zelda series soon became his primary obsession fascination, but additionally he was soon introduced to text-based RPGs by one of his schoolmates. Discovering that he had a knack for the English language and a strong love of telling stories, he started putting effort into writing his own storylines. That all got put onto the backburner, though, when he discovered the Zelda online community, particularly The Desert Colossus's Hyrule Adventures 2, an online text RPG based in the Zelda world. He joined under the pseudonym of "Alpha" and soon became one of their lead writers, going so far as to join the moderator staff and, in a year's time, become the head administrator of the RPG. During this time, Twilight Princess was released, and he joined several other TDCers in posting their thoughts on the game - his "Twilight Impression Posts" lasted for several months and were well received by the community. Staying on even after the webmaster was forced to retire, he continued to provide occasional news posts and articles for the site, until it became clear that the site was dying. He turned his focus back to Hyrule Adventures 2 and his college studies, until the latter forced him to stop work on the former. Tyler graduated a few years ago from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelors in Computer Science, and now serves as a software engineer for a rather large company that he doesn't feel like telling you all about (he's a jerk like that sometimes). His love of gaming and writing still strong, he joined the Zelda Informer staff in early 2013 to write a walkthrough for The Wind Waker, but later began using his English skills to become ZI and Gamnesia's first dedicated Copy Editor. When not trying to get Brian to shut up in Gamnesia's group chat, he spends his time writing Zelda fanfiction, planning some original fantasy stories that he may or may not try to publish some day, and playing games on his Wii, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo 3DS. He intends to get a WiiU sooner or later, probably around when Pikmin 3 comes out, but has little interest in the other consoles currently. Also, he can't stand writing bios in first-person. Talking about yourself like that is just...weird.
