Japan’s monthly comic magazine, CoroCoro, has once again covered the upcoming Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon games with a large spread revealing new information!

  • Necrozma’s new forms, Dusk Mane and Dawn Wings, will both be getting the ability Prism Armor
  • Necrozma can learn a new attack, Photon Geyser (Psychic-type/Sp. Atk), which appears to be usable by both forms
  • Necrozma will also be getting new Z-Moves which will turn Sunsteel Strike into the new Z-move Sunshine Smasher if Dusk Mane, or Moongeist Beam into Moonlight Blaster for Dawn Wings. It appears that this will also be available to Solgaleo and Lunala, respectively, as well.
  • Pokédex Rotom will be getting much more interactive in USUM! You can now befriend Rotom by communicating and interacting with it to increase it’s Z Rotom Power. Rewards for the increased compatibility include being able to use Z-Moves more than once per battle and gaining items and powers through a new feature called Rotopon. The latter definitely being a play on Gachapon, the famous capsule machines in Japan which Pokémon and Pokéballs took inspiration from

The new extra Z-Move sounds pretty game changing, but we’re hoping it’s only for the story mode! Happy to see Rotom will be playing a larger roles in the new games, or are you hyped for Necrozma’s new found abilities and moves?
