The festival plaza is a new feature in 'Pokemon Sun and Moon' Pokemon Company

Pokémon Sun and Moon introduced a ton of new features to the Pokémon world and it seems many of them will return in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

According to Serebii, various Japanese descriptions for the Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon strategy guide confirm multiple returning features: Festival Plaza, Battle Royal, Battle Tree, Poké Finder and Poké Pelago will all return to Alola.

These descriptions also state how trainers can get all the new moves, abilities and hold items, but doesn't clarify if they mean brand new or new to Alola. The listings also confirm that this guide will include a Serial Code to obtain 2 Master Balls.

Alongside the Festival Plaza, Poké Pelago and the other older features is a brand new photo mode that allows trainers to take pictures with their Pokémon in different poses and outfits to share.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will bring trainers back to the Alola region for a new story that mirrors the first Gen 7 games, but with changes to events along the way.

Necrozma, the Legendary Pokémon that was found in the end-game of Sun and Moon, takes center stage in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon as the Psychic-type will take over both Solgaleo and Lunala for an unknown reason.

Nintendo also released a trailer that revealed certain Pokémon that weren’t found in the Alola region in Sun and Moon will now appear. The introduction of new Ultra Beasts will also add more new Pokémon to the Pokédex.

A new Poké Ride will be available in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Mantine Surf, letting trainers travel between islands and take part in a surfing minigame.

The Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon strategy guide is set to release Dec. 6. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will release for Nintendo 3DS Nov. 17.
