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 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.
