New USUM Trailer: Team Rainbow Rocket, Battle Agency, Catch All Legendaries!

A new Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon trailer has released! The next big news dump will be revealed on Friday, November 10th.

Team Rainbow Rocket!

Team Rainbow Rocket has been revealed, made up of bosses from past games and headed up by none other than Giovanni himself! Giovanni uses Mewtwo in battle and has a bunch of Rainbow Rocket Grunts at his disposal. The goals of the villainous new team are not yet known.

Battle Agency

A new Battle Agency facility allows players to rent Pokemon and engage in Single Battles. The facility is led by Sophocles.

A greater variety of Rental Pokemon become available the more you connect to other players locally and through the Internet. The more battles you win, the higher your Grade becomes, allowing you to rent powerful Pokemon and eventually battle Sophocles.

You also earn prizes for battling at the facility, like Gold Bottle Caps.

All Legendaries Obtainable!

Trainers will be able to travel through an Ultra Wormhole and encounter Legendaries and Ultra Beasts. Each version will have exclusive Pokemon, but between both versions, you’ll be able to capture all Legendaries in the franchise. (Legendary =/= Mythical.)

  • Ultra Sun exclusives: Ho-Oh, Raikou, Groudon, Latios, Dialga, Heatran, Reshiram, Tornadus, and Xerneas.
  • Ultra Moon exclusives: Lugia, Entei, Kyogre, Latias, Palkia, Regigigas, Zekrom, Thundurus, and Yveltal.
  • Available in both: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo, Suicune, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Rayquaza, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Giratina, Cresselia, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Landorus, Kyurem, and Zygarde.
  • Some of the Legendaries only appear when you have caught other members of their group.

On a related note, the QR Scanner’s Island Scan feature will allow players to encounter new Pokemon for the Alola region, like Charmander, Grovyle, and Greninja.

Totem Stickers

New “Totem Stickers” are scattered throughout the Alolan Region. Players will be able to obtain Totem-like Pokemon the more stickers they collect, such as Lurantis in Ultra Sun and Salazzle in Ultra Moon.

    This is huge. I was hesitant to believe the riddler with every boss returning, but wow. Cannot wait to see how this ties into the story. Only 2 more weeks, so excited!

    A bit late to the party. You need people that live in timezones ahead of you. In any event the november 10 trailer is the last hope for new alolan forms. I cant imagine them keeping it a secret. Marketing for USUM has been terrible though. They havent built up hype as well as previous titles.

    They already confirmed in a previous interview that there won't be any more Alolan Forms.
    The explanation given was that it was still the same Alola Region, so adding more regional variants would have been weird.

    Other than the fact another 100 Pokemon now live there so some of them could've had Alola forms

    I'm not the only one thinking of Icarus now, considering GF's antecedents, am I?

    All I can say is; welcome back Giovanni. I guess there will finally be a real evil team again instead of some cheap, childish and/or unrealistic group like everything since Team Rocket. Yes Aether was allright I guess, but come on, nothing beats Team Rocket.

    Btw, does this mean the casino is back? Nothing like hitting the slots like an addict in a Pokemon game for hours and hours in search of a Porygon that wasn't that good after all.

    That interview was proven to be fake. Also, the riddler also leaked a Gen 1 Grass/Poison type receiving new Alolan form, along with leaking Rainbow Rocket and the Battle Agency, so it is very likely we will be getting at least that new Alolan form if we dont get any other ones.

    I guess the rumors are probable true that this will be the last game on the 3ds since they're throwing everything including the kitchen sink into this game from a nostalgic perspective.

    This is INSANE lol didn't think so close to launch be more info like this, if this makes TCG it would be an amazing promo or mini set, full arts of every leader lol also would still love to see totem pokemon in the TCG, made up of 2 cards just like the old legends cards, but glad you can effectively catch/use giant totem pokemon in game now!

    This is I'm sure another couple of dozen hours of game play! Cannot wait for this game!
