Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Showcase New Z-Moves And Powered-Up Rotom Dex



The Pokémon Company updated the official website of Pokémon Sun and Ultra Moon with a new trailer and details on recently reveled new Z-Moves of  Necrozma’s forms and the upgraded Rotom Dex.



New Z-Moves for Solgaleo and Lunala


In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, new exclusive Z-Moves make their debut for Solgaleo and Lunala—Searing Sunraze Smash and Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom.

There is one other Pokémon that can learn Sunsteel Strike and Moongeist Beam, the moves needed to unleash these extremely powerful Z-Moves—Necrozma.

That’s right—a Necrozma that knows Sunsteel Strike or Moongeist Beam will be able to unleash Searing Sunraze Smash or Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom.

It seems there is even greater power still lurking within Necrozma, as well. Just how much power lies hidden within it?

The Rotom Dex is a special item. It’s a Pokédex—a tool that records information about the Pokémon that you find and catch during your adventures—but with a Rotom inside! (Rotom is a Pokémon that is able to enter various electronic appliances.)

In your adventures in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon,you’ll grow closer to Rotom the more you communicate with it, and as you do, it will come to help you even more in your journey. Rotom’s personality will change based on how you communicate with it. Perhaps the Rotom that joins you on your adventure will come to act a bit like you!

Deepen your bonds with Rotom as you travel around the world of Alola! It’ll make your adventure more lively and support you on your way!

Roto Loto is a feature that lets you get items from your Rotom Dex as you get closer to Rotom. These special items that you get from your Rotom Dex’s Roto Loto come in different varieties, with some increasing the Exp. Points or prize money that you receive for a set period of time, while others might make it easier to catch Pokémon or have other effects. You may choose to use these Rotom Powers from your Bag whenever you’d like!


Use Z-Moves Again with Rotom’s Z-Power



If you become close enough with Rotom, it’ll use a special power for you called Rotom’s Z-Power! This lets you use a second Z-Move in battle, even though you’re normally limited to using only one Z-Move per battle!


Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon release worldwide on November 17, 2017 for Nintendo 3DS.
