Pokemon UltraSun and Pokemon UltraMoon continue the story of the Ultra Beasts and the mysterious world that they inhabit. For those who are unfamiliar, the Ultra Beasts are otherworldly beings with incredibly destructive powers that pose a serious threat to both people and Pokemon.
In the next iteration of the story, we will face a few more Ultra Beasts that each bring their own unique powers and forces to the table. Pokemon UltraSun will be home to UB Burst, a Fire and Ghost Type that holds a peculiar new move known as Mind Blown. Mind Blown sees Burst take its head off its body and throw it at an enemy dealing heavy damage at the cost of some of its own HP.
Pokemon UltraMoon presents UB Assembly, a Beast with the appearance of a very angry stone wall. Each of these Ultra Beasts much like those in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon hold the ability Beast Boost, which enhances their highest stat by a single point every time they cause another Pokemon to faint. A useful ability that makes each of the Ultra Beasts even more powerful as battles draw on.
The Ultra Beasts from the previous game will also make an appearance in UltraSun and UltraMoon being accessible through special Ultra Wormholes, where you take control of either Lunala or Solgaleo and zoom your way through space-time. Many wormhole exits will pass you by and you can enter and explore all the unique and beautiful worlds of the Ultra Beasts.
If you travel far enough through an Ultra Wormhole you will stumble into Ultra Megapolis, a brand new if unoriginally named city, where all the light has been stolen by Necrozma. At the heart of this city lies a large tower shining with brilliant light. It is up to you and your Pokemon to solve this mystery and find out what awaits at the light-filled pinnacle.
Ultra Recon Squad
You didn’t expect to get away without encountering another team did you? The antagonists of UltraSun and UltraMoon are known as the Ultra Recon Squad. These hazmat clad weirdos come from another world that lies, like yours, at the end of an Ultra Wormhole. Based on their names I would assume they are here to steal Ultra Beasts especially when combined with their little Poison pet, UB Adhesive.
UB Adhesive is one of the more powerful Ultra Beasts and is even said to be capable of understanding human speech if it spends enough time with them. Unfortunately, this little Beast will be arrayed against you initially but will eventually be acquirable later in the game.
One of the cooler things about the Ultra Recon Squad is that both UltraSun and UltraMoon present different leaders and tell a slightly different story to the other version. Dulse and Zossie will be arrayed against you in Pokemon UltraSun with Soliera and Phyco standing in your way in Pokemon UltraMoon.
These brand new adventures will be available on November 17th 2017.
