New video today... it's been confirmed that the Pokemon on the cover of Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon are new Necrozma forms, the result of Necrozma absorbing Solgaleo or Lunala. They are Necrozma Dusk Mane & Necrozma Dawn Wings, and they also still retain Solgaleo's Sunsteel Strike and Lunala's Moongeist Beam, respectively.

Lycanroc has a new Z-Move - Splintered Stormshards. Lycanroc needs Stone Edge and the Lycanium-Z to use this move, and it eliminates terrain effects such as Electric Terrain when used.

The new Dusk Lycanroc can only evolve from Rockruff that have the ability Own Tempo, which will only be available from the release event. These Rockruff can only evolve into Dusk Form between 5pm/17:00 and 5:59pm/17:59 at Level 25.

Furthermore, the event Rockruff will differ depending on the version that you download it on. Both Rockruff are Lv10, are holding a Focus Band, and will have Tackle and Bite and the special move Happy Hour (doubles the amount of prize money earned at the end of battle, stacks with Amulet Coin/etc) - but the Rockruff you get in Ultra Sun will know Fire Fang and the one you get in Ultra Moon will know Thunder Fang. They both benefit from Dusk Lycanroc's Tough Claws making them 30% stronger (84.5 base power compared to 65). smiley It's unlikely that it's breedable so choose the one you want carefully.

Lastly, two new Ultra Beasts have been revealed! They are codenamed UB - Burst and UB - Assembly.

Burst is exclusive to Pokemon Ultra Sun. It's thought to be part Fire, Ghost or Dark type since it's signature move in the video was super-effective against Metagross and Decidueye. It's head seems to be based off an exploding firework given its name.

Assembly is exclusive to Pokemon Ultra Moon. It's a massive, hollow Pokemon that towers over people. It's inside walls are also covered in eyes while its exterior keeps shifting to show eyes here and there.
