Today's Nintendo Direct has revealed new details about Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

There are two new Pokémon in these games, the Ultra Beasts codenamed UB Burst and UB Assembly. No further information on these new Pokémon has been revealed.

English names for information that was revealed in CoroCoro have been announced. When Necrozma takes over Solgaleo, it becomes Dusk Mane Necrozma, which is featured on the cover of Pokémon Ultra Sun; when it takes over Lunala, it becomes Dawn Wings Necrozma, which is featured on the cover of Ultra Moon.

Lycanroc's exclusive Z-Move is named Splintered Stormshards in English; it requires Stone Edge the Lycanium-Z to use. When used, it removed all terrain from the field.

Further details on the Rockruff distribution have been revealed. As previously revealed, players can obtain a special Rockruff that evolves into Dusk Form Lycanroc via Nintendo Network from November 17, 2017 to January 10, 2018. This Rockruff evolves into Dusk Form Lycanroc by leveling up between 5 and 5:59 pm, starting at level 25; it cannot evolve into the other forms of Lycanroc. This Rockruff holds a Focus Band, has the Ability Own Tempo, and knows the moves Tackle, Bite, Fire Fang and Happy Hour in Ultra Sun and the moves Tackle, Bite, Thunder Fang and Happy Hour in Ultra Moon.

The way the player encounters their starter Pokémon differs from Pokémon Sun and Moon. There are new areas in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, including a "beach where surfers gather" and a "valley of Pikachu".

Additionally, there are new clothing items available for the player in these games, including the Pikachu Cap.
