New Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon details – postgame episode, visit a world with Legendary Pokemon, more

Posted on October 17, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News

This week’s issue of Famitsu has an interview pertaining to Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon. Producer Shigeru Ohmori and director Kazumasa Iwao talked about the games during a chat with the magazine.

Among what’s covered is the tease of a postgame episode and the ability to visit a world with Legendary Poekmon. We also hear about other tidbits such as how Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon should about double the current story volume for the Sun & Moon generation.

Game Freak was greatly relieved to learn that Z-Moves were well-received by fans.

For Sun & Moon, Game Freak worked on balancing bosses by making them beatable if players use proper strategies or suffer if they go in recklessly.

After completing work on Sun & Moon, the staff felt that there was still more they could do in the Alola region.

The reason they’re releasing Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon is to offer players some variety before the current image they get stuck with the same image of Alola.

The story isn’t a “sequel.” It’s a “story that has a little divergence” from Sun and Moon.

Characters from the “Ultra Expedition Team” make an appearance, and that’s where the story changes. They appear at the opening of the game, so you’ll be able to start the game with excitement.

On top of a different main story from Sun & Moon, there’s an additional new episode after entering the Hall of Fame. Game Freak teases that those who are looking at it as what Platinum was to Diamond and Pearl, can expect an even more ultra huge change coming.

The Ultra Expedition Team arrived from another world through an Ultra Wormhole. A new element is being prepared that will have the protagonist and company dive into the Ultra Wormhole and visit all kinds of different worlds.

Pokémon will be much easier to collect and train compared to Sun and Moon.

Using the “Ultra Warp Ride” to travel to other worlds, you’ll even get to visit a world with Legendary Pokémon. For example, you can meet and catch Mewtwo. That’s all Game Freak has to say about that for now and they’ll leave it to your imagination whether we’ll get to meet other Legendary Pokémon.

If we put it simply as far as story volume goes, the addition of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon should about double the current story volume for the Sun & Moon generation.

    I’m assuming their teasing that those other worlds might be other regions, but only small portions of them (for example, the “world” where you encounter Mewtwo would be Cerulean Cave.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      That would be a cool concept.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Basically I called this, so neat being right!

  • Kamiyouni

    Awwww yus

    “They appear at the opening of the game, so you’ll be able to start the game with excitement.”
    Oh so just like how the Aether Foundation were spoiled to us as the bad guys right at the beginning of S/M. Real exciting.

    • MagcargoMan

      Wow… they were? Haven’t played Sun and Moon but I assumed that wasn’t revealed until near the end.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        No. They were not? You should play it.

      • Reggie

        Nope. You see Lillie being chased by them. You’re not told why, but it’s still obvious that Aether are the villains. Then the game still acts like they’re the neutral party. It ruins the surprise.

        • KnightWonder

          Not really a surprise if you’ve been playing Pokemon for long enough. It was pretty obvious by the trailers alone that they were the true villains.

          • Reggie

            Well yeah. Pokemon is notorious for having blatantly obvious plots. Story isn’t one of its strong suits. Pretty much any party that has a uniform look are guaranteed to be the villains (with some exceptions). My point is that the game wanted them to look neutral and even just in their efforts of building a safe haven for Pokemon, but it’s completely ruined by what you see the moment you start a new game.

          It’s not necessarily black and white, for instance, based on his first appearance, on either could guess that Faba was either the head of a splinter group or overthrow Lusamine since he gavea sinitsger vibe

  • Princess_Eevee9

    I admit I’m to inpatient with these Articles being published! Lowkey they’re teasing Battle Frontier! GIVE US A FUSION OF SINNOH AND HOENN BUT SINNOH MORE AS IT WAS BETTER! POKÉMON WORLD TOURNAMENT AND POKÉMON TRAINER PLAYGROUND TOO PLZ! These Pocket Dimensions sound hype!

    • Evan Gustavson

      No they didn’t. They specified the postgame story would be the equivalent to what Platinum was to D/P.
      I take that to mean the other Legendary (Solgaleo or Lunala) will come in to the plot (and hopefully Necrozma will merge with them too, creating Ultimate Necrozma, a manticore like form)
      “It seems there is even greater power still lurking within Necrozma as well. Just how much power lies hidden within it?”
      That’s from the most recent announcement regarding Necrozma’s power. (Showcasing his Z-Moves)
      Who knows what they mean by that?
      Hope both that and the USUM site’s backdrop are hinting at a complete form, like the one Kyurem never got.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        Post-game story was literally the Battle Frontier & Looker I believe? Also the minor stuff with the Mythical & Smaller Legendaries. You’re silly if you don’t think this is happening, all the stuff regarding the fused Legendaries happens within Pokémon UltraSun & Pokémon UltraMoon’s storyline. Duh.

    “Junichi Masuda in in charge of fully supervising the game.”

    Yay.

    “Game Freak was greatly relieved to learn that Z-Moves were well-received by fans.”

    OP moves are always well received. Now proceed to ditch then in favor of a new gimmick in Gen VIII.

    “For Sun & Moon, Game Freak worked on balancing bosses by making them beatable if players use proper strategies or suffer if they go in recklessly.”

    And they balanced it with Z-crystals… Ok…

    “After completing work on Sun & Moon, the staff felt that there was still more they could do in the Alola region.”

    Like an actual good game?

    “The reason they’re releasing Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon is to offer players some variety before the current image they get stuck with the same image of Alola.”

    Could’ve been done with a single version.

    “The story isn’t a “sequel.” It’s a “story that has a little divergence” from Sun and Moon.”

    So it’s still about Lillie, right?

    “Characters from the “Ultra Expedition Team” make an appearance, and that’s where the story changes. They appear at the opening of the game, so you’ll be able to start the game with excitement.”

    Yay.

    “On top of a different main story from Sun & Moon, there’s an additional new episode after entering the Hall of Fame. Game Freak teases that those who are looking at it as what Platinum was to Diamond and Pearl, can expect an even more ultra huge change coming.”

    Sequels would’ve accomplished that and more.

    “The Ultra Expedition Team arrived from another world through an Ultra Wormhole. A new element is being prepared that will have the protagonist and company dive into the Ultra Wormhole and visit all kinds of different worlds.”

    Like Hoopa’s rings in ORAS?

    “Pokémon will be much easier to collect and train compared to Sun and Moon.”

    Yay, probably means more handholding though.

    “Using the “Ultra Warp Ride” to travel to other worlds, you’ll even get to visit a world with Legendary Pokémon. For example, you can meet and catch Mewtwo. That’s all Game Freak has to say about that for now and they’ll leave it to your imagination whether we’ll get to meet other Legendary Pokémon.”

    Again, just like ORAS, right?

    “If we put it simply as far as story volume goes, the addition of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon should about double the current story volume for the Sun & Moon generation.”

    Please no more cutscenes. My body isn’t ready.

    Again, nothing new or exciting about this, it’s getting worst if anything. It seems it’ll be almost the same game, and that means it’ll carry over the same problems. Anyway, I hope that someone enjoys this games.
