Pokemon Ultra Sun

We have a new screenshot from Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon showing off the “I Choose You” Cap Pikachu.

No news yet if there will be an international event for the “I Choose You” Cap Pikachu but we will update you if there is.


More news is in from this month’s issue of CoroCoro, specifically pertaining to Pokemon Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon and the arcade game Pokemon Ga-Olé.

According to the magazine, Pokémon Ga-Olé will have a special disc for the “I Choose You” Cap Pikachu, which is a Pikachu wearing the cap that Ash wears in the new movie. What’s interesting here is that you can scan the QR Code into Pokemon Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon to get the same Pikachu with the cap, and it’s not available in the already-released versions of Sun / Moon.

Fans can obtain the promotional Ga-Ole disc when seeing the new movie. There’s no word yet on plans for an international distribution.


Famitsu has posted a trio of direct-feed Pokemon Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon screenshots. View them in the gallery below.


Shortly after Pokemon Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon were announced, the two games were added to the official Pokemon press site. Oddly, both were listed for both 3DS and Switch for a short time. But soon after it was spotted, the Switch mention was removed.

Just as expected, The Pokemon Company says that the Switch listing was an error. An official statement also reiterates that Pokemon Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon are exclusive to 3DS.

The note reads:

“We would like to address rumours based on a clerical error on the Pokémon press site; Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are coming exclusively to Nintendo 3DS family of systems and are not due for release on Nintendo Switch. This listing on the Pokémon press site was made in error and is not indicative of future plans. Please refer to the Pokémon Direct for more game details.”


New forms for Solgaleo / Lunala were depicted in today’s unveiling of Pokemon Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon. Additional art for both Pokemon have since come in, attached above.


In the original Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon games, a Wii U could be found in the player’s room at the beginning of the game. With Pokemon Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon, it’s been replaced. Wii U is gone, and Switch has taken its place. Since Switch is Nintendo’s focus now, the change does make sense.


Update: This has already been removed. We’re going to chalk it up to it being an error.

Original: Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon were just revealed for 3DS as part of the new Pokemon Direct. However, the series’ official press site is also listing the game for Switch with a “TBA” release date. I’m going to guess that this is just a mistake, but hey, maybe there’s a tiny bit of hope that they’ll be on Switch as well.
