Ready To Shred Some Waves On A Mantine?
We knew that we would be getting a whole slew of new features in these latest Poke-editions, given how Nintendo have a track record of bumping things up with each iteration, but it seems these superior versions of Sun and Moon have managed to reach new heights. How?
By letting us literally surf on a Pokemon!
According to an article on Gamespot –
Nintendo has released a new trailer for Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the next pair of Pokemon games on the way to 3DS. The video showcases a few of the new features players will find in the upcoming titles, including an expanded photo mode and the ability to surf between islands.
In Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, players will have access to an all-new Ride Pokemon ability, Mantine Surf. You can ride atop the manta Pokemon and manually surf between the different islands of the Alola region. While surfing, you’ll also be able to perform a variety of tricks and earn a high score.
Additionally, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon introduce a mode called Alola Photo Club. With this feature, players can take photos with their Pokemon and decorate them with a number of different frames and stickers. You can then share the photos you take with other players.
The trailer also confirmed that island Trials are returning in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, but this time, some play out differently than they did in the original Sun and Moon versions. The games will also feature at least one new Trial, which is presided over by Poni Island’s captain, Mina. Additionally, players will be able to encounter more than 400 Pokemon in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, some of which can only be found in a certain version.
Pack some sunscreen and a wetsuit, our second trip to the Alola region can’t get here soon enough!
