Via Karubiimunomono. Seems to tease some new characters in the back. Tagline reads "An ultra adventure drawing near to the mystery of Necrozma is about to begin."

Send me to Ultra Space if old.

Given Nebby is present I can only assume this an alternate version of Sun/Moon.

I don't think they did a very good job making it clear. Asked various people for months about it many even recently had no idea if this was a sequel or a definitive version.

I guess it's too much to ask for Lusamine to be a good person in this one?

Hmm...possibly a (new?) pro-UB faction?

As for Lillie....maybe spoilers?

I'm kinda guessing Lillie's key art is just a mild spoiler for her end-game, rather than her 'first encounter' persona - changing that would (or at least could) significantly shake up the story, otherwise.

Could be kind of interesting if she's a replacement/addition to Hau, tho, and tbh her bond with Nebbie could still be a thing with her being a trainer, especially if she's new/inexperienced

Maybe you'll actually be able to give her Solgaleo/Lunala this time. Well...probably not. But I can hope.

Inb4 the original sun and moon is still canon and the Lillie we see here is from that game's dimension, and the ultra versions take place in a different dimension.

It'd be a shame if she was replaced in the story, since she's one of the better villaIns the series has had.

Those new villains are probably additional villainous Aether employees to add to the main story. Kinda like how Pokemon Platinum and Black2/White2 added additional villain team members.

Also, I'm calling it now: Lillie already in her ponytail outfit implies that USUM will take place in an alternate universe where the events of SuMo already occurred without your player character.

As someone who played early Pokemon games and hasn't bothered with later installments: These designs just keep getting busier and uglier. The art looks like a weird mess of random shapes and colors.

Pretty awesome. I wonder if they will just be new Admins in Aether itself or a third party.

This isn't even a question of design or such, but how is it possible for you not to notice the composition? Two protagonists in the center, the three Pokemon form a triangle, supporting cast even behind with the legendaries even behind. That's a very typical composition.

The scientists were generic NPCs, these guys seem to be unique (different heights is the giveaway) despite wearing the same uniform. Also the head scientist (don't remember his name) doesn't seem to be included.

That said I wouldn't be surprised if these guys were connected to Aether.

I'm not talking about the old dude and the curvy lady, but the ones you fight in the basement. Don't they have unique designs, like the masked face thingie?

I don't think these are Aether people, but could just be a separate group. They seem to have tribal designs, so they might be live near the Altar of the Sun/Moon. Probably summoned Necrozma as well.

Seriously, Sun and Moon had the best story in Pokemon to date IMO. An alternate retelling of the story will be beast. Man the only thing that could have been this even better was if it was for the Switch, but I'll patiently wait for that Pokemon game to come out eventually.

If we're seeing end-game Lillie then maybe the new story content only takes place near the end or post-game like Platinum or OR/AS. Be nice if there were more places to go post-game than the Battle Tree.
