New Pokémon Sun and Moon Trailer Reveals Aether Foundation, Ultra Beasts, and Day/Night Cycle
Want to bet that Aether will be post-game villains?

Nintendo has released another trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon that reveals a ton of features coming to the next generation of Pokémon. In addition to a few new creatures, including a mysterious synthetic Pokémon literally named Type: Null, it appears that there are mysterious entities known as Ultra Beasts that pose a threat to people and Pokémon alike. We get to see one in the trailer, and the question is, what exactly are these Ultra Beasts? The Aether Foundation, an organization the player will encounter along their journey, is conducting research on the subject.

Other features include a Pokémon Snap-esque photo mode called Poké Finder, a side quest involving collecting the cells and cores of Zygarde, and a different Day/Night cycle depending on which version of the game you play. Pokémon Moon's day/night cycle is 12 hours ahead of Sun's, so that it will be daytime in Moon while it is nighttime in Sun and vice-versa. There's a lot to unpack in this trailer, so watch it below, and stay tuned to RPGFan for further updates as we approach the November release date of Pokémon Sun and Moon
