The Pokémon Company has shared its latest update on Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon with new info such as Mantine Surfing and more that awaits on the return to Alola.

 

First, here’s a look at a new trailer highlighting new features.

 

The island challenge is a ritual passed down in the Alola region. Its intention is to help children grow into full-fledged Pokémon Trainers. To complete the island challenge, you must face trials on each of four islands.

Some trials in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon seem to play out in different ways than they did in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.
