New USUM Trailers: Larger Pokedex, Mantine Surf, Updated Trials

Pokemon has released new English and Japanese trailers for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. They reveal…

  • A new PokeRide, Mantine Surf, allows you to surf between the islands of Alola and perform various surfing moves.
  • USUM’s Pokedex now features over 400 Pokemon compared to 302 in SM’s Pokedex. New Pokemon now appearing in Alola include Tropius, Larvesta, Volcarona, Mareep, Larvitar, Tyranitar, Zorua, Dedenne, Houndoom, and Manectric. Houndoom is exclusive to Ultra Sun while Manectric exclusive to Ultra Moon.
  • Trials will reappear in USUM. Mallow’s trial seems to now involve searching a group of Sudowoodo for items, Sophocles’s now has a robotic Vikavolt, and in Acerola’s she’s yelling at you to get out of the Thrifty Megamart.
  • Mina now has her own trial. It seems you will battle her.
  • Alolan Marowak is now a Totem Pokemon at Wela Volcano Park.
  • Additionally, new merchandise info from Takara Tomy indicates that Dusk Mane Necrozma will be Psychic/Steel and Dawn Wings Necrozma will be Psychic/Ghost. Dusk Mane Necrozma is 3.8m tall and weighs 460kg (exactly double Solgaleo’s weight) while Dawn Wings Necrozma is 4.0m and weighs 350kg (which is 230kg more than Lunala’s weight).

Accompanying the news was also various pieces of artwork, including a higher quality version of the game’s promotional character artwork that’s been floating around the past few days. It features a couple of mysterious new characters.

    Mina should've already had a trial and surfing between the islands seems kind of intuitive. Both are things I can't imagine a reason for not including in SM to begin with.

    Buuuuuut it's also nice that they're revamping the other trials and trying some new stuff.

    I hope they make the trials harder or at least have something resembling a puzzle also fighting trial captain's should be a prerequisite for doing them. Totem Pokemon were a joke because of z moves players need a better build up to the e4 other than one hard fight against the big boss of the enemy team

    Dusk Mane Necrozma and Dawn Wings Necrozma weigh as much as Solgaleo and Lunala plus Necrozma respectively. Go figure.

    My favorite part of SM was when Mina was like "lol here's a Z Crystal bye"

    I love the Mantine ride, and I really hope the expanded dex means new Alolan Pokemon! Also I like that the new Necrozma formes weight is literally just Solgaleo/Lunala's weight with Necrozma's weight added on, instead of something completely random :p

    This looks amazing! Revamped trials, awesome new Mantine PokéRide, expanded Pokédex, and the poster. Add in some of the information from the last trailer (such as there being completely new areas), and you've got a really excited fan here. Definitely picking up Ultra Sun! :D

    The game was looking good at first, but I figured it would be a BW 2 scenario where it would take place in the future. I might not get this game since there are nicer cards to spend my money on around the same time.

    Why would you?

    It looks like the only clip of actual gameplay has the player walking through sudowoodo with no pokemon following him, so that would deconfirm followers if anything.

    This is cool! Some of my favourite Pokémon is a part of the Alola-Dex: Zoroark, Volcarona, Tyranitar and Ampharos. I hope we can catch them before the Pokémon League, as I would love having them on my team there.

    As for Mantine Surf: A mini game is quite often a lot of fun, and this one look neat.

    The Alola Photo Club: Pokémon Selfies...? *hehe* I like it. :)

    It's not coming back. At least not in these games. People need to let it go.
