It’s not long now until the release of Pokémon Ultra Moon and Ultra Sun on Nintendo’s handheld devices, and to celebrate the occasion the Japanese publisher has announced that alongside the release of the two games, it’ll also release a special edition new Nintendo 2DS XL console that has been designed like a Poké Ball. It’s worth noting that this special edition console won’t be coming with a copy of the game, or a charger.
Ultra Moon and Ultra Sun tell the story of the Legendary Pokémon that steals light, Necrozma, who transformed into two new forms: Dusk Mane Necrozma, who took over Solgaleo, and Dawn Wings Necrozma who took over Lunala. You’ll set out on an epic journey — as a customisable lead character — to return the light to the world, while also catching a few Pokémon along the way. Standard fare, really.
Players who buy the game at launch will get a special Pokémon called Rockruff, who’ll evolve into a Dusk Form Lycanroc, while those who download the digital version of the game will be given 12 Quick Balls for quicker Pokémon catching.
Pokémon Ultra Moon and Ultra Sun and the special edition Poké Ball-themed 2DS XL will be released on November 17.
