Pokemon For Switch Is Helped By Ultra Sun And Moon, Says Dev

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon will be the last core title in the series for the 3DS due to the game having pushed the limits of the handheld console.

Game Freak went on to say that around half the number of developers who worked on Sun and Moon had worked on their Ultra counterparts, but it's now unknown how much of the company's resources are now involved in making the aforementioned Switch title.

So basically, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are similar to the enhanced versions in that they will simply have more stuff to do, see, and catch than their predecessors, but the added emphasis on narrative and its timing keep it similar to, but not quite the same as a direct sequel.

That's actually not too impressive for a Nintendo system - its clamshell predecessor, the 2004 DS, shifted 154 million units, surpassing the Game Boy and Game Boy Color's combined 118m as well as the Game Boy Advance's 80 million-plus.

Even with the new Nintendo Switch console on the market, and conceptually superseding the 3DS with its ability to be played on the go or plugged into a larger screen, the six-year-old flip-top has not been retired.

Game Freak is now developing at least three Pokemon games: Ultra Sun, Ultra Moon, and Pokemon for Nintendo Switch. It seems that there isn't much for the developers to do if they want to convert Pokemon Sun & Moon into a full VR title.

"With Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, we've tried to eke that out more and really, really push the system to its absolute limites, and we're now feeling that perhaps this is the maximum of what we can get out".

So what have the rest of the studio been working on?

There have been some rumors around according to which there could be a third version of Pokemon Sun and Moon to appear on Nintendo Switch.
