[Watch] Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon Lets you SURF ON MANTINE!
Do you really need more? Fine. This video has more.
Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are coming in November. In anticipation of the release, the Pokemon Company has released a video teasing some new features for the pair of games.
The video shows a number of new features, which Neogaf user Forkball was nice enough to itemize. We see Mina's trial, changes to the previous trials, a Photo Club where you and your Pokemon can pose for a picture, and our personal favorite: Mantine surfing!
From the official Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon website:
In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, you’ll be able to have fun with Mantine Surf, a sport that lets you do some surfing while riding on Mantine’s back. Mantine Surf isn’t just a way to get between islands—it’s also a sport where you compete for the highest score by pulling off different cool moves! Try to become a top-notch Mantine Surfer by riding Mantine like a pro!
Take all sorts of photos with the Pokémon you like at the brand-new Alola Photo Club! You choose the Pokémon to appear together with you in the photo, as well as your outfit, the background, camera angle, and more, so you can take the perfect picture. Get an amazing photo with your favorite Pokémon—and show it off to your friends!
After the shoot, you’ll be able to decorate your photo with frames and stickers. You’ll also be able to show other players the photos you took through communication features.
Taking a photo with a Pokémon also makes that Pokémon more affectionate toward you. As their affection toward you increases, your Pokémon will try to do even better than usual during battles. Strengthen your bonds with your Pokémon!
Island Challenges Revisited
The island challenge is a ritual passed down in the Alola region. Its intention is to help children grow into full-fledged Pokémon Trainers. To complete the island challenge, you must face trials on each of four islands.
Some trials in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon seem to play out in different ways than they did in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.
New Island challenges are probably the biggest addition to the game, in terms of gameplay and story, but Mantine surfing has us excited due to it's crazy and amazing sounding good time.
Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will release on November 17, 2017, on Nintendo 3DS.
