    Serebii's Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Discovery Thread

    The new game, Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon, are out this week and as usual we will be covering the game in full as soon as we can.

    Although it seems that practically everything was revealed before launch through leaks and other such methods, this thread will have all the minor things I discover as playing through the game, which may not necessarily warrant posting directly on the site, though keep an eye there too as sections will be updated.

    You can discuss things here: http://www.serebiiforums.com/showth...n-USUM-SPOILER-Thread-(Enter-at-your-own-risk!)

    Right, so my copy of the game arrived yesterday and I have been playing nigh-on non-stop to cover everything.

    I'll gradually post my notes I made here, focusing mostly on things that deviated from the original. I'll be focusing on making pages over the next few days. Let me know what you want to see

    The game starts as before, but Aether and Ultra Recon Squad are chasing Lillie, as we know.

    As you go into Route 1, this time you will find a patch of grass where Yungoos will come and attack you, causing the starters to appear to protect. Kukui follows soon and offers you one of the Starters

    As you approach Iki Town, you will encounter Hau, who will then choose his Pokémon, the starter you are strong against. He will then challenge you to a battle.

    Kukui then suggests going to the ruins where things play out as before only this time you battle the Spearow, it's at Level 4

    You'll then return to Iki Town with Lillie. Kukui will give you the Pokédex and Trainer Passport

    Then, the next day, you go to the festival in Iki Town. Kukui will show you things like catching wild Pokémon.

    As you approach the festival, you'll encounter the Ultra Recon Squad who question why people are celebrating. They then leave

    Go to Iki Town and the festival begins, battling Hau again. You get the Z-Power Ring here. The Ultra Recon Squad appear again having watched it, and try to learn about how to restore Necrozma.

    Go to the lab and get the Rotom Dex and when you leave, everything will briefly go dark. Then you go to the Pokémon Center. Quickly trading stuff across to level up

    In the Trainer School, the teacher uses the starter nobody picked

    Once in Hau'oli, as before, Hau will get you the Poké Finder

    When you reach the Pokémon Center, Ilima will inform you of Totem Stickers and how Team Skull are trying to steal them

    As you approach Hau near Malasada Shop, Team Skull attack for your amulet. Battle them, then Ilima comes to battle you to test you for the trial

    Hour 1

    When you approach the motel in Route 2, you get taken to Big Wave Beach, but you can't Mantine Surf until later

    Team Skull are there causing issues with Mantine, stop them.

    Later in Route 2, you encounter the Ultra Recon Squad who are detecting the aura from the trial in Verdant Cavern

    Hau will then explain Roto Loto to you

    The first trial is the same as in Sun & Moon. Find 3 Pokémon and defeat them, then move onto Totem Gumshoos/Raticate. Once again as you do it, the Skull Grunts show up to ruin your trial. COmplete the trial and you get Normalium Z

    Exit the den and the Ultra Recon Squad appear, amazed at Z-Crystals and will introduce themselves to you, before leaving

    While hunting for Nebby in Melemele Meadow, you'll encounter URS in the Seaward Cave. They want to see if you're strong enough to help "The Blinding One" so challenge you. They are learning about Pokémon battles. They say that Lillie and Nebby are inconsequential unless someone opens a path to Megalo Tower. Hau battles you soon after

    Move on to the Grand Trial

    Serebii And, as if by magic, the webmaster appeared... Staff Member Admin

    Defeat Hala for the usual rewards and Ride Pager. RThe Alola Photo Club then opens up and you have to do one shoot to proceed

    You'll then see Hau and leave to Akala Island, but you do it through Mantine Surf rather than going on the boat. You'll meet Samson Oak here rather than later on. This time he's researching Totem Pokémon. He will give you Totems in exchange for the stickers

    Pikachu Valley is off Route 4. You get a Pikachu Frame for your photos here. You can pick up Partner Pikachu here, as well as a Pikashunium Z.

    Once agfain you battle Hau in Paniola Town

    You spot Team Skull in Paniola Town harassing a man and his VUlpix, wanting the bottle cap it's holding. The Vulpix runs off after

    You get an Egg at Paniola Ranch. Rotom activates Roto Hatch for free
  6. Serebii

    Serebii And, as if by magic, the webmaster appeared... Staff Member Admin

    As usual you'll find Hau and Gladion on Route 5 and Team Skull soon appears

    The Brooklet Hill trial is slightly different. Here, you have to herd Wishiwashi down to the bottom. However some of the water bubbles aren't Wishiwashi but Pokémon like Dewpider. As you get to the bottom, a Wishiwashi begins to form before it is replaced by a Totem Araquanid. It boosts Defense

    After that trial, then the URS show up when you remove the Sudowoodo from the ranch. They are researching local Pokémon but then challenge you with one of theirs

    Team Skull still there at Route 6 stealing a Drifloon. You then go to the Battle Royal

    The Fire Trial is largely the same, having to spot the difference between the dances. Middle Marowak, how they're smiling and then the totem Marowak. Marowak boosts Speed.

    This time Mohn meets you in Alola to tell you about PokéPelago and you actually go through the tunnel connecting Routes 7 & 8, it's called Dividing Peak Tunnel and the Ultra Recon Squad are in it asking about the aura between Z-Moves and Totem Pokémon. They are going to see a scientist

    Passimian person in Route 8. Goomy also route 8. The Vulpix you rescued earlier is in an Aether van and you're asked to visit from time to time. You need to bring it a Big Malasada. Then, come back the next day

    URS are discussing things with Colress
  7. Serebii

    Serebii And, as if by magic, the webmaster appeared... Staff Member Admin

    You then bump into Hau and have to go into Festival Plaza

    Mallow's trial is also largely the same just with minor differences in locations and methods. Find Mago Berry, Honey and Big Root. For example, now when you pick the Mago Berry, you'll be followed by a Fomantis who felt it was theirs and a Comfey will come from the flowers and Sudowodoo for the Big Root. Levels 17, 21 and 24 respectively. Totem Lurantis with Speed boost. Lv. 24

    Then go to Dimensional Research Lab to learn of Ultra Beasts

    As usual Olivia is speaking to Aether in Diglett's Tunnel and you find Team Skull there

    When you get to Route 9, you encounter Looker, referencing the happenings of Diamond & Pearl and Black & White

    Person wanting to see Alolan Dugtrio in Konikoni

    You then see Skull VS Aether in Memorial Hill like before and then get attacked by Plumeria

    Defeat Olivia next then go to Faba in Hano Grand Resort to go to the Aether Foundation for the Ultra Beast stuff
    Once again Nihilego is battled and is at Level 27. Defense boosted. Then, the URS appaear and explain what it is. They explain how they came from a land where Necrozma stole the light. They explain that Aether Foundation is there to protect the light if Necrozma appears. You're then sent to Ula'ula

    The Kantonian Gym is located in Malie City. Costs 1,000 to enter. You can challenge it daily

    Team Skull are also by Route 10's bus again

    To start Sophocles' trial, you need to gather all the Charjabug. You have to find three of them on Mount Hokulani. When you've found them all, your trial begins. This trial has you do a sliding puzzle where you have to position Charjabug correctly to power the caller for the totem. However, you then get attacked with each segment. Such as Lv. 29 Elekid and then Lv. 30 Electabuzz after the second. Then with the third you connect all 9 Charjabug for full power. Howevever that's too much and Togedemaru jumps in, but a Totem Togedemaru soon arrives. It has boosted Defense. It is Lv. 33 and calls Skarmory & Dedenne.

    After defeating it, you get taken to the Battle Agency, then return to Malie Garden for the first showdown with Guzma
  8. Serebii

    Serebii And, as if by magic, the webmaster appeared... Staff Member Admin

    You meet Samson Oak by Ula'ula Beach

    As you get to Tapu Village, you'll encounter URS again. They state it is where Necrozma battled the Tapu when it was in Alola. They mention they have Necrozma safe in Megalo Tower and they're there to learn new ways to defeat it.

    Once again, you'll encounter Team Skull outside Aether House trying to get Cosmog out of Lillie's bag

    Encounter 3 wild Frillish in Route 14 accosting a Swimmer

    Acerola's trial is the same as before, requiring you to take photos of Pokémon with the Poké Finder. Like before it has you look for Level 30 Gastly, Haunter and Gengar before reaching the Totem Mimikyu. Once we get to the end, Acerola appears and thinks we should leave quickly, and refuses to take no for an answer but when a photo is taken, she disappears and the door locks. Totem Mimikyu boosts all its stats and is Level 35. It calls upon Banette

    Team Skull appear at Aether House upon your return and tell you to go to Po Town

    The place with Zygarde chambers wants you to go there when you catch a Zygarde in Alola

    You'll encounter Faba in Ula'ula Meadow who is out looking for things on his own, thinking that thinking means he can be president

    The Team Skull stuff plays out the same as previously

    Then, Lillie gets kidnapped by Skull as before and you face off against Nanu in Malie City

    Battle through Aether Paradise to learn more of Aether's plans

    However, as you get to the final part, the URS are there and challenge you to a battle so that you leave Cosmog with them. They had Colress design a device to help them control Necrozma
  9. Serebii

    Serebii And, as if by magic, the webmaster appeared... Staff Member Admin

    This time, Lusamine wants to use Cosmog to protect the world from darkness rather than to just cause chaos.

    She battles you

    Afterwards, she and Guzma go through the Ultra Wormhole. The URS appear and say about how they were going to send someone strong back to their home to restrain Necrozma. They mention how there's a portal at the Altar of the Sunne and Solgaleo/Lunala brought them here

    To Poni Island

    Instead of a Veteran greeting you, now Mina does and she recommends you find Hapu

    Same as Sun & Moon plays out so far, with the Machamp pager and going to the ruins for Hapu to become Kahuna.

    This time, however, only you go to Exeggutor Island. Lillie stays behind. The Exeggutor are rowdy and wild Pokémon are terrorising themthem such as Pinsir (Lv. 42/43). You take care of them to get access to the flute

    As before, Skull Grunts accost you to save Guzma, as will Plumeria

    When you get to Hapu in Vast Poni Canyon, then URS will appear. After being betrayed by Lusamine, they have trust issues and insist they can handle it, so challenge you again. Defeat them and Hapu gladly offers her aid to them

    Hour 10

    Despite Mina having a trial, the Dragon trial still exists and is identical to before. Face off against Jangmo-o and Hakamo-o until you get to the totem Kommo-o. It is Lv. 49 and all stats are boosted

    When you get the altar, Cosmoem evolves but before you can make an Ultra Wormhole run with it, a wormhole opens and Guzma & Lusamine fall out, followed quickly by Necrozma. Lusamine says there's nothing to do, but as you go to fight, Necrozma turns towards Nebby and fights it, eventually fusing.

    Soon, it opens wormholes. Bacadephelon arrives on Melemele, Buzzwole on Akala, Guzzlord on Ula'ula and Xurkitree on Poni.

    Necrozma then battles you. It's Level 50 but can't be caught

    Defeat it and it'll disappear through the wormhole, but Alola's light gets stolen. The URS appear and, with Lusamine asking for their help. They suggest that Necrozma was distracted by yopur amount of Z-Crystals and suggest going to their world. Calling on the other Legend, they take you through Ultra Warp Ride to go to Ultra Megalopolis. It's controlled only through motion

    You need to find a White wormhole. All others go to other worlds which have lots of wild Pokémon

    When you get there, you will encounter the other Ultra Recon Squad admins who will explain what has been happening. They guide you to Megalo Tower where Necrozma is.
    Climb the tower and Necrozma will transform into Ultra Necrozma and want to battle you.

    It's Level 60 and its aura boosts all its stats. It cannot be captured again. Defeat it and it'll separate from Nebby and return to another world, and Nebby returns to yours.

    The URS then offer you a Poipole as thanks. It's Level 40

    When you return to alola, the URS thank you for your work. They say they discovered the Z Power comes from Necrozma from the light long ago. They choose to stay behind for a while to continue research. Lusamine and Lillie return to Aether Paradise to take care of Nebby as it is still weak

    Mina then appears, to investigate, and offers for you to do her trial. It starts with a battle against her. Her trial is to then go through Alola and battle all previous Captains.

    Ilima can be found in Hau'oli Cemetery. After that, he will take you to the next area, Lush Jungle where Mallow can be found

    Next Hour

    Next you go to Wela Volcano Park where you see Hiker David looking after it until Kiawe appears. You battle him there

    Sophocles is up next. Molyane is saying goodbye to him. Then, you battle and move on to Route 15.

    Here, I found Guzma who spoke of change and gave a Grip Claw while Hau promised things are going to escalate soon.

    Next is Acerola in Aether House, but she's had to go and so Nanu is taking over. However, after Hau defeated him, he just felt like giving you the petal.

    And we return to Mina in Seafolk Village and she gives you the Rainbow Flower and awaits the totem, a Ribombee. This Ribombee has all its stats boosted and is at Level 55 and calls Blissey

    When you exit, Hapu arrives and says it's time for the Grand Trial and to meet on Exeggutor Island

    It's time for the Pokémon League, continuing as always with Gladion at the first bit. He mentions how everyone has been getting stronger and that Lillie may be at Mahalo Trail. This is where she can be found with Solgaleo/Lunala

    You find Necrozma weakened in the crate of Mount Lanakila
  10. Serebii

    Serebii And, as if by magic, the webmaster appeared... Staff Member Admin

    Time for the Pokémon League. My starter popped out of its Poké Ball as we approach to show the bond. Molyane is replacing Hala

    Hau is also the final trainer to face

    Credits are a bit different, showcasing Gladion leaving, Dexio & Sina visiting the Zygarde machine and Zygarde in Resolution Cave. Everyone goes to the Ruins of Life and Tapu Koko summons.

    Going to go grab Zygarde so I can better catalogue any and all cells that exist at the same time of doing a lot of other things

    Hau comes in, just like in Sun & Moon, straight after and says some people were looking for you. It's the Ultra Recon Squad. They mention some Ultra Beasts appearing on Poni Island and take you there.

    Here you meet Wicke who gives you a Type: Null as a gift from Gladion. It's Level 60

    In Poni Grove you will find Blacephalon/Stakataka. There are two to obtain

    After doing this, Sophocles runs to your house and informs you of Festival Plaza having been taken over. Having blocked you using your own Pokémon, you have to go and defeat them through the Battle Agency.

    The grunt uses Golbat, Kantonian Raticate & Arbok

    Defeat them and Sophocles manages a full restore on Festival Plaza.

    When you get back, Meowth turns on the TV and you watch the press conference by the Aether Foundation over the goings on, only for Ultra Wormholes to spawn during it

    So begins Episode "RR"

    Lillie comes into your house asking about it and says she's going back to the Aether Paradise to check on Lusamine

    You'll find Dexio/Sina as you go towards Poni Meadow

    Zygarde is Level 60 and found in Resolution Cave. Catch it and go to Route 16's lab and you'll meet Dexio/Sina. They'll say they're willing to combine two Zygarde if you beat them in battle. Dexio has a 10% Forme Zygarde on his team. Beat him and he'll give you the 10% Zygarde.It's Lv. 63. They then give you the Zygarde Cube which has the remaining 40 cells so you can create a Complete Forme Zygarde and teach all the moves straight away

    Lillie gives you the Solgalium Z when you catch Solgaleo

    Catch Necrozma and you'll get the Ultranecrozium Z. Then, Colress will appear and give you the N-Solarizer and N-Lunarizer
