Since the date of release was set for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, fans have poured out theory after theory of how the game was going to play out and look. Now that the game is actually released, these same fans are excited to release their reviews on the game. There have been some good reviews, but just as many not so good reviews. When it comes down to it, you have to play the game to know if it is good for you or not.

However, if you are on the fence on buying the new game, we have composed only a small amount of the new features for your reading pleasure. We will keep this spoiler-free by avoiding the main story and talking only about SOME of the added features in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

1. Character Customization

There has been a love by fans about how you can select the way your character looks for the game play. There have been some new styles added to Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, specifically the outfits you are able to buy. The only downside to this is the price of the outfits, you would have to save almost every Poké Dollar you get to buy some of the new outfits.

2. New Locations in Pokémon Ultra

To stick to the title of being spoiler free, there is a new place that can be accessed in the game. It holds good significance to the improved story in the new Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Pokémon games.

3. Larger Pokédex

The amount of Pokémon available has been increased to 400. Previously it was only 300, but during the development that added more Pokémon for trainers to hunt and add to their teams.

4. Mantine Surf

Charizard and boats were the only way to travel in between islands in Sun and Moon, however, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon add a new feature that changes this fact. Mantine Surf is a mini game that allows you to surf on the back of a Mantine, and literally surf. You are able to hang 10 on the waves, performing tricks and making the travel interactive and fun.

5. RotomDex Upgrades

One of the biggest changes that had a few leaks prior to the November 17th release was the RotomDex upgrades. There are many new features to the RotomDex that weren’t previously available including an ability to help eggs hatch faster. There is also a Z-move available for the RotomDex now. It also offers a feature known as the Roto Loto, which offers a bunch of useful items for your training experience.

As stated above, these are only some of the new features in the game. Some of the leaks we got prior to the release of the last 3DS Pokémon game include Rainbow Rocket, new ultra-beasts, and new Z-moves for many different Pokémon. However, we avoided these to avoid spoiling the game for our readers.
