Giovanni and Friends
A new mode has been revealed, potentially as part of the main story or postgame, involving Giovanni of Team Rocket! Leaders of Team Magma, Aqua, Galactic, Plasma and Flare – Maxie, Archie, Cyrus, Ghetsis and Lysandre respectively – also appear and can be battled.
They have their signature Pokémon, although Giovanni also appears to be using a Mewtwo… with a Mega Stone for the Mega Mewtwo Y form!
Speaking of Legendaries, you can catch a lot of them in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! Some are version exclusive.
The Battle Agency is a new facility where you can enjoy battling by easily renting powerful Pokémon.
The Pokémon you can rent for these battles will increase as you mingle with other players around you or over the internet. Connect with formidable players, and you’ll be able to rent powerful Pokémon. So communicate with lots of other players, choose the Pokémon you like best from those available to rent, and aim to become the top agent!
Island Scan is confirmed to return, and with new additions! The Kanto, Hoenn and Kalos starters can be found.
In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon,you’ll be able to encounter Pokémon that didn’t appear in Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon,such as Charmander, Grovyle, Greninja, and others.
There’s a lot more to take in – feast your eyes on these!
