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.
