Is that... some sort of new Deoxys form on the cover? You can see half of its face on each game's box

Wow.. these "art cards" are the laziest thing I've ever seen. Why even bother? :/

Seriously, why can't they even release a proper Pokemon Collector's Edition? People would go crazy over that.

Why did we need ultra versions of these games? I don't play Pokemon, but my kid is showing interest so I'm curious.

No, it's most likely to be Necrozma true form when he shed his prism armour.

It's pretty much the expanded version of the basic version with new story, characters, features, Pokémon form and location.

You mean Solgaleo and Lunala?

The image the guy above is talking about:



You see it on the box art to the side of each respective legendary.

I had a theory on this image in another thread:

I love how diff people put different pieces on the board but let's now put put 2 and 2 together:



What we see here is Solgaleo and Lunala with aspects of Necrozma all over them.

Now we see this mysterious light with eyes in the above image...

My assumption is that light with eyes is Necrozma's new form when it sheds its prism armor. The armor connects with Solgaleo/Lunala to give them new forms, but the remainder from within the shell emerges as a being of just light.

Necrozma's Moon Entry:

Necrozma
Prism Pokemon
"Light is apparently the source of its energy. It has an extraordinarily vicious disposition and is constantly firing off laser beams"

Calling it now, Necrozma Light Form incoming.

Also, new forms for existing Pokemon [especially legendaries] during the same generation isn't a new thing. Giratina, Shaymin, Kyurem all got additional forms in the same generation they were introduced...all notably not in the original games they were introduced in...

Btw, It's shape is literally a star. There's your Pokemon Stars everyone.

One cent more expensive than the two games separately. Do people really care about cards and poke balls?

Adding art cards makes it significantly better than the ORAS bundle, at least.

Still nothing compared to the steel book or the Pokemon company's web store bonuses though

No, thanks. I'm done buying both versions of Pokemon games. Tried it for the first time with X & Y, realized it was a bad idea with Sun & Moon.

True Pokemon veterans know you always want an ample supply of Pokeballs on hand. You never know when a rare Pokemon is going to show up, like a Fearow or something.

All these random release dates, trailers, game feature reveals, and collector's edition announcements in the last two weeks make me wonder if Nintendo had a Direct planned, something got messed up in its production, and then they chopped up everything to be distributed via Twitter and YouTube.

Anyway, more on topic, I'm curious how big the demand is for not only the dual pack but the collector's edition as well. As a casual Pokémon fan, it's hard for me to understand the appeal. So I wonder how big of an audience this product appeals to.
