In related news, Lillie has been confirmed for the upcoming Pokemon title.
Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are officially in the midst of their major pre-launch PR push.
Earlier this week we brought you news from the latest issue of CoroCoro magazine regarding a few new Z-Moves and Rotom Dex capabilities.
It's also worth pointing out that Necrozma, whether fused to Solgaleo/Lunala or not, will have a new move that is exclusive to it. Photon Geyser is a new Psychic-Type move that can deal substantial damage to an enemy and dictates how much by determining which of the Attack or Special Attack stats are higher (per PokemonDB). You can "befriend" Rotom Dex, apparently, and if you do, he will let you play "Roto Loto", a slots game that gives you free, random items. Players will soon familiarize themselves with Dusk Mane (Psychic/Steel type) and Dawn Wings (Psychic/Ghost type) Necrozma, which can learn Solgaleo and Lunala's exclusive moves, Sunsteel Strike and Moongeist Beam.
It's not clear yet whether the Rotom friendship will affect non-story encounters like the Battle Tree or online modes, but if it does, the combination of Z-Moves would mean a huge shake-up to the balance of the game. For instance, Rotom will eventually be able to influence battle by allowing trainers to use a second Z-Move. Already, Nintendo has revealed a lot of new features such as new beasts to collect like the two new forms of Necrozma, the Photo Club, Mantine Surfing, additional customization options, and much more.
Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon launch on November 17 for Nintendo 3DS systems. A trailer showing these and the previously mentioned features can be found below.
