Today saw the launch of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon exclusively for Nintendo 3DS.
In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, the greatest villainous organization in history appears. It’s Team Rainbow Rocket—made up of the bosses from past titles in the Pokémon series. The boss of this new organization is none other than Giovanni, who was also the boss of the villainous organization known as Team Rocket in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, the first games in the Pokémon series.
Giovanni has gathered all of the bosses from the villainous teams of the past Pokémon games, like Ghetsis of Team Plasma and Lysandre of Team Flare, and recruited them for Team Rainbow Rocket. What Giovanni and his allies are doing in the Alola region has yet to be revealed, but players must prepare themselves to square off against this group of the greatest villains in Pokémon history.
