    Actually, with the release of the full artwork for the new Solagleo and Lunala, the solgaleo and lunala parts of the Pokemon seem more like illusions or projections of the Pokemon rather than the actual thing. Perhaps this is Necrozma using some sort of power to imitate the legendary Pokemon's form. Maybe it can function sort of like a better ditto or the such.

    This is the first time I'm not really excited about a new main series game. There is little information given because they spent a lot more time than necessary on Pokken for Switch. The only part of the direct I cared for was Gold & Silver coming to virtual console.

    It was stated in the game that Necrozma has been on Earth for a long time. Perhaps these games will go into detail about that. How it can fuse with Solgaleo and Lunala remains to be seen.

    Yeah although B&W2 did introduce new routes and towns and you started on a whole new part of unova, it wasn't just the same game with black and white kyurem added. There was 8 all new gyms etc and in my opinion it worked well as a kind of sequel to B&W

    Is it just me or does solgaleo look like it came straight out of Zoids?
    I've always thought it looked similar to the white liger especially since its shiny form is red. But with Necrozma being his "attachments", makes me think it even more so.

    I'm the opposite then. I'm excited for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon but the Virtual console release of Gold and Silver bore me as I still have my copies of HeartGold and SoulSilver.

    So that's why they didn't include the whole dex in Sun and Moon. Now it won't be weird for them to add new alolan forms for Pokémon that were not on the original Alola Dex. This pretty much excludes any mon that was available in the originals though. Hope all the recent GS nostalgia cash grabs make us get Johto alolan forms.

    Ultra versions of Sun and Moon weren't something I was anticipating; but I was pleased to see they didn't go the whole "Pokemon [Stars] Switch" route.

    I do wonder how Necrozma will fuse with Solgaleo and Lunala. Perhaps the DNA Splicers will get a second use? Probably not; they'll probably just come up with a "sister version" that does the same thing...

    It seems like you're correct. The only question now is how will Necrozma be able to change formes if not by fusing with Solgaleo or Lunala.

    All it said was alternate storyline, nothing about timelines or dimensions or any of the conclusions I've seen people jump to.

    As in, it won't just be the exact same story again with add-ons. e.g. B2W2 had an alternate storyline to BW. Probably just set a few years later in a slightly tweaked Alola. Maybe those empty lots have Gyms now, that kind of thing.

    Hard to say, but they looks super weird. It doesn't have the feeling like Black/White Kyurem have. We might actually see more Alolan form from different generations

    It doesn't say anywhere on their press site that the games are releasing for Switch.

    If they do release US/UM for the Switch, there shouldn't be that drastic of a product change from handheld to home console.

    The only thing that could be on the Switch port would be walking Pokemon; something a home console can handle better than a handheld.

    That's just me.

    Way too little information here to judge these games.

    Wasn't too impressed by S/M and Gen VI felt stale so these will have to be something really interesting if GF wants into my wallet again so soon.
