During the September Nintendo Direct, new footage of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon was released revealing two new Ultra Beasts and a ton of new information for the games.

Before we go any further, check out the latest Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon clips below.

The biggest news is the reveal of two new Ultra Beasts. Ultra Beasts changed the Pokémon world forever with their presence and now UB - Burst and UB - Assembly will make their debuts in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

The types of Burst and Assembly are unknown (although from the trailers it seems Burst has an attack that can hurt Metagross and Decidueye, so maybe it’s a Fire-type attack) but Burst is exclusive to Ultra Sun while Assembly is exclusive to Ultra Moon.

The information from the latest CoroCoro leak that revealed the names of the Necrozma fusions and the Lycanroc exclusive Z-Move were shown during the Nintendo Direct. In English, Dusk Mane Necrozma is the Solgaleo form Dawn Wings Necrozma is the Lunala form.

As for Lycanroc, the Dusk Form will be available for both Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon through a special distribution. If you download the Rockruff to Ultra Sun you’ll get one that knows the move Fire Fang, the one sent to Ultra Moon will know Thunder Fang.

The special Lycanroc Z-Crystal will work with all three forms of the Rock-type Pokémon and will unleash the powerful Splintered Stormshards.

Other information shown during the Nintendo Direct are some areas unexplored in Alola like a beach and the Pikachu park. There are also a ton of new trainer customizations and clothes like an entire Pikachu wardrobe and a Charizard hat.

It was also revealed that trainers who purchase the digital download of Pokémon Gold or Silver will receive a special Celebi that can be sent to either Pokémon Sun/Moon or Pokémon Ultra Sun/Moon.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will release for Nintendo 3DS on Nov. 17.
