New Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Info Coming Next Week + Rotom AI-Bot!
The official Japanese Pokémon Twitter account has announced when we will get the next bit of news regarding Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon: next Thursday (November 2nd) at 10PM Japan Standard Time. This marks a rare occurrence as news leading up to the games has been released sporadically with little or no advanced warning. Must be something worth getting hyped over!
Today the site was updated with some small news, including a few new confirmations of returning Pokémon now catchable in Alola; Furfrou, Buneary, Mime Jr., Hawlucha & Inkay will all be found in Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon! There is also a new two-man Bewear show occurring in Hau’oli Mall… wait… who’s that third bear costume!?
In other news, Pokémon has teamed up with Microsoft’s AI Research team to power a Rotom chatbot accessible from the company’s official LINE messaging app account. Japanese users can talk with Rotom, play a word game and even see their “conversation stats”!
Any guesses as to what next week’s news might bring?!
