Along with today’s trailers, brand new details about Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon were added to the official website. The latest information covers the return of the island challenge plus the new Mantine Surf and Alola Photo Club features.

Find all of the details collected below. We also have several new screenshots attached.

Island Challenges Revisited

The island challenge is a ritual passed down in the Alola region. Its intention is to help children grow into full-fledged Pokémon Trainers. To complete the island challenge, you must face trials on each of four islands.

Some trials in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon seem to play out in different ways than they did in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

The trials are hosted by the captains found on each island. The content of the trials can vary from running around the area to trying to solve puzzles. At the end of each trial, you’ll face a powerful Pokémon known as a totem. If you defeat it, you’ll complete the trial. The final trial of each island is the grand trial, where you face off in battle against the leader of that island—the island kahuna!

Mina

There’s even a new trial with Mina, one of the captains who serve as guides for these trials.

Hau

Hau is a boy who becomes your friend as soon as you move to Alola. He’s the same age as you. Hau is known to be a laid-back guy, but through the island challenge, he will come to terms with his reasons for participating in Pokémon battles.

Lillie

Lillie is a girl about your age. She’s acting as Professor Kukui’s assistant for her own reasons. After experiencing many things during her adventures with you, Lillie will discover a new side of herself.

It has been revealed that the mysterious Pokémon shown on the Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon packages is in fact Necrozma, after it has taken over the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo or Lunala. These forms of Necrozma are called Dusk Mane Necrozma and Dawn Wings Necrozma.

During your island challenge, you’ll be confronted with troubles involving the Legendary Pokémon Necrozma. You’ll meet mysterious people and Pokémon as you witness the new danger closing in on the Alola region.

Ride the Waves with Mantine Surf!

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, you’ll be able to have fun with Mantine Surf, a sport that lets you do some surfing while riding on Mantine’s back. Mantine Surf isn’t just a way to get between islands—it’s also a sport where you compete for the highest score by pulling off different cool moves! Try to become a top-notch Mantine Surfer by riding Mantine like a pro!

Dash Around Alola with Ride Pokémon

Once you get the Ride Pager item, you’ll be able to go on Ride Pokémon and reach places you couldn’t get to before. As you progress through your adventure, you’ll meet and then gain access to various Ride Pokémon. Dash through the world of Alola with the help of Pokémon!

Take Great Photos with the Alola Photo Club

Take all sorts of photos with the Pokémon you like at the brand-new Alola Photo Club! You choose the Pokémon to appear together with you in the photo, as well as your outfit, the background, camera angle, and more, so you can take the perfect picture. Get an amazing photo with your favorite Pokémon—and show it off to your friends!
Gallery

After the shoot, you’ll be able to decorate your photo with frames and stickers. You’ll also be able to show other players the photos you took through communication features.

Taking a photo with a Pokémon also makes that Pokémon more affectionate toward you. As their affection toward you increases, your Pokémon will try to do even better than usual during battles. Strengthen your bonds with your Pokémon!
