'Pokemon Sun And Moon' Release Date, Story Details & New Ultra Beasts Revealed; Here’s How Ash Looks In The Upcoming Anime [VIDEO]
Much to the delight of Pokemon buffs, The Pokemon Company has announced that each game of "Pokemon Sun and Moon" will feature more Ultra Beasts. The announcement comes just days before the much awaited role playing video games hits the store shelves.
Aside from the previously divulged UB-01, the game publisher has unveiled another Ultra Beast which is said to be a part of the upcoming game. Dubbed as UB-02, the latest inclusion is actually two different beasts which differ for the two games i.e. "Pokemon Sun" and "Pokemon Moon," RP Gamer reported.
The "Pokemon Sun" version of the aforementioned Ultra Beast is dubbed, UB-02 Absorption which is said to possess strength beyond imagination as it is covered in muscles.
The version in "Pokemon Moon," on the other hand, is called UB-02 Beauty, which boasts a special power of hypnotizing other creatures, putting them under a spell regardless of their gender.
The developer unveiled the Ultra Beasts through a recently released gameplay trailer posted on NintendoNews. In addition to the Ultra Beasts, the "Pokemon Sun and Moon" footage also introduced a brand new Pokemon Type i.e. the Alolan form of Raticate, along with Null and Jangmo-o.
While avid gamers were still going berserk over the recently released clip, the developer rolled out the first footage for "Pokemon Sun and Moon."
Pokemon buffs were quick to notice that Ash looked a little different from how he appears in all the previous Pokemon franchises.
Just like the game counterpart, the anime is rooted on the Alola region where Ash attends a school with plans to graduate. He bumps into a slew of unique Pokemon as well as Alolan versions of pre-existing Pokemon. But that's not all! The anime is said to feature some Z-Moves which are present in the game.
The most noticeable change in the anime however, is the new appearance sported by Ash. According to reports on Forbes, rest of the characters are also likely to sport new appearances. It remains to be seen if this is due to an effect of Alola, but its more likely that there was a radical shift in basic art style.
"Pokemon Sun and Moon" hits the store shelves in North America and Japan on November 18, followed by an official launch in Europe on November 23.
