-Not a sequel to S/M but the story with "different divergence".

-The appearance of Ultra Recon Squad will change the story.

-Main Story with different development and there's a new post game content after beating Pokemon League.

-People who are expecting minor changes like "Emerald" or "Platinum" should be expecting "Ultra Change".

-There's new game content where players can roam around the Ultra Hole and go to different dimensions.

-Capturing and raising Pokemon became easier compared S/M.

-In some of the dimensions that players go through "Ultra Warp Ride", players will be able to encounter some Legendary Pokemons. One of the Pokemons player can encounter is Mewtwo.

-If one just compares the sheer length of the script, US/UM is twice as long compared to Sun and Moon.

Y'know, I wasn't sure about USUM, but I loved SM's story so I guess I'll bite.

The scripts is twice the length? So this new content might be bigger than I thought. I don't fancy returning to Alola for full price mind.

Damn this sounds very promising, especially the postgame part. Finding some legendaries through the wormholes was expected but it’s nice nonetheless!

Interesting, but I'm still not hyped for the games like I have been for past third version installments. We'll see if that ends up changing when they are released.

This is promising. I wish the promotional cycle for these games would have gone better, but I still think they should have made sequels instead of alternate stories.

Kissing goodbye to regional forms too, since I doubt we are going to see more of them in a long time, like Megaevolution.

Curious what they mean by this. Hope leveling up to 100 is a lot easier at least.

Hm. Acting like Platinum is a "minor change" from DP is probably not going to sit well if US/UM don't deliver.

Calling it now, Ultra-warp ride will allow us to go to iconic locations of other regions. Mewtwo's cave, Deoxys island, the Pillar from Hoenn, Darkrai and Cresselia islands... maybe some isolated routes to catch unique pokémon...

ULTRA CHANGE

They basically have to put in interdimensional portals into every remake/third version from now on in order to catch the old legendaries. I wish they blended into the world better like they did in HGSS.

Yea, this was the one soul crushing feature about Sun and Moon. They needed to at least add a limit to the call ins.

Not happy with the Mewtwo thing, I disliked the legendary quest in ORAS - just felt forced and had nothing exciting about it. And yeah, the freaking genies will destroy the VGC again.

The script part interests me, the main story in SM was the best part about it.

Siliconera has more info

Junichi Masuda in in charge of fully supervising the game.

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 think it's a great feature but I don't think it balanced the game like developers said before S/M release. Most of the time, it just gave popular Pokémon even more option like flying type such as Gyarados, Dragonite or Landorus

Trials. Most of the captains seem to return but the trials will likely be different. The only trial that will probably be removed entirely is the Dragon one near the end of the game.

The idea of the script being twice the length of the original does catch my curiosity. Hopefully the teased bigger change compared to Platinum vs. Diamond/Pearl lives up to the hype.

It's a weird comment because we already know who the director is for US/UM. This is the first game that he's directing. Masuda has moved to the producer position permanently, so he would be overseeing this and the Gen 8 games anyway.

Landorus, specially Scarfed Landorus, is the only genie that will be truly used in VGC. Thundy isn't as viable with the Tapus.

We'll see if Cresselia and Heatran are there too.


Hyped for the game though, I just guess we don't have new Alolan-variant Pokemon
