Twenty years of villainy has assembled in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, under the lead of none other than original Red/Blue big bad Giovanni.
Its ranks filled by past villainous bosses like Team Galactic’s Cyrus and Team Plasma’s Ghetsis, no one is quite sure what Team Rainbow Rocket is up to in the Alola Region, but players will have to prepare themselves to go up against the greatest group of villains in Pokémon history!
In addition, today’s brand new trailer unveiled the brand new Battle Agency. Trainers taking part in this facility will rent powerful Pokémon to take part in 3v3 Single Battles, with prizes like Gold Bottle Caps awarded for the highest win records. The pool of Pokémon you can rent will also increase as you communicate with other players either locally or online!
As previously mentioned, old legendary Pokémon are returning as well! The Pokémon Company today confirmed that alongside Mewtwo, players will also be able to obtain almost forty legendary Pokémon from past generations. Some will be exclusive to specific versions (majority to be announced):
