There wasn't really anything that indicated the Recon Squad LIVED in the Ultra Space, though? If they put a trailer image with Lusamine and Guzma in US would people say they lived there too (probably lol)? They seemed more like a subgroup of Aether to me, honestly. Wasn't there a shot of one squad member replacing the random Aether grunts in the Lillie running away cutscene? Did I miss something where it says they live there? please help

Also something excited was that it looked like we battle UB Adhesive earlier in the game (the protagonist had a Dartrix instead of Decidueye, and that seems like a deliberate choice)!

People are guessing they lived there due to how pale they are. They're not simply white or fair skinned; they look like they lived in a cave for decades. They have next to no skin pigment, and coupled with their outfits that look like Aether's Ultra Space exploration outfits and their goggles which have mere slits in them to let light in the idea they live in Ultra Space makes at least a little sense. We also see them in Ultra Megalopolis, which seems to be located in Ultra Space or somewhere near there. Now they're probably linked to Aether somehow since they use a Beast Ball in the trailer, but they're like no human we've seen so far in Pokemon.

Just like Black2 and White2!
B2/W2 was the end of Pokemon on the DS, so US/UM would logically be the end of Pokemon on the 3DS meaning that the Switch will be Nintendo's only console to market and release games for due to it being a massive game changer.

Since it'll take ages for me to get a Switch, US/UM may be the last Pokemon games I'll play for a very long time. But maybe getting the Switch will allow me to finally get into stuff like Mario games and Splatoon.

A journal entry made by what I assume is the beast ball's creator mentioned that members of Lusamine's family stole research pertaining to a special capturing device when it was completed. Lusamine wasn't happy about it so I doubt they are on good terms. Maybe they are affiliated with the Ultra Recon Squad.
I have a theory that Mohn is connected to the Ultra Recon Squad. Mohn went into the Ultra Space according to his son by what sounds like some sort of research mission and never seemed to have returned (though we know he did...), which is what caused Lusamine to become obsessed with it (but at some point lost track of her objective of finding her husband...)

And their name makes me think that they are, or were at some point part of Aether.

Anyway, I must say, the new UB is my favorite out of all of them. It actually looks like the PokeEarth mons in terms of design :).

yes, i was implying things were going to get really dark in the plot, which seems to be the implication so far from trailers

im not quite that out of touch with slang now
Sorry if my comment sounded insulting, it's just when I read your slang comment I read it as "This game is about to be horrible." The context just didn't read right to me.

I think the fact that the Recon Squad use Beast Balls, kind of makes me think that Beast Balls existed before the Aether Foundation made them. My guess is the Aether Foundation either did the same exact research on UB's and were able to apply their research to pokeball technology in the same way that the Recon Squad had probably discovered way before the Aether Foundation or another interesting possibility being that somehow through researching the wormholes the Aether Foundation may have unintentionally (or intentionally stole it) come across a Beast Ball and then reverse engineered it.

I also get the impression that the Recon Squad is not really a team of bad guys. My impression is that they are possibly the Aether Foundation of their own dimension and see the Aether Foundation as invaders into their dimension. My guess is the Recon Squad will probably fight us multiple times through the story line because they believe we are attempting to invade their dimension, my guess is there will probably be actions on both sides that are lost in translation and there will be an accidental mini war to both dimensions believing that they are invading one another.

I also sort of think that Necrozma is going to be sort of manipulating all of this on the sidelines while trying to consume the primary light source of our dimension. I think that the Recon Squad's primary goal is to stop Necrozma and we seem to be in their way while we have the same goals on the opposite side of the spectrum with the Recon Squad appearing to be in our way.

Jeez, another trailer! I like watching both the Japanese and English because they both seem to show different things. I can't seem to find the one with the Pheromosa clip though, if somebody could link that would be appreciated.

I think this big dose of info is enough to tide me over until release, I sure hope not too much is released in the coming weeks. Despite what a few people are *still* saying about these games, there's a very good indication that the story is going to be very different than it was in SM. I don't think these games are going to "suck" or "fail" at all, far from it.

You know what's sad about the Ultra Beasts? The fact that UB Symbiont aka Nihilego, the very first UB revealed to the public, is the only one to have a unique type combination.

You're talking about this brief Pheromosa appearance, right? It was in the Japanese trailer. o.o

thought I had about comments about how the story of US/UM seems dark:

part of the plot is apparently about Necrozma stealing light, so the plot is literally dark

Although late to the party, UB-Burst gives me strong Wublin vibes, since it's an otherworldly creature that dances around and uses it's head like a disco ball.

UB-Assembly is the result of electing Gumshoos as Alola's president. That aside, I'm not digging it's type combo, since Rock/Ghost would have been a nice addition to unused Type combinations.

UB-Adhesive looks like something straight out of Invader Zim or Bravest Warriors, given the helmet-like head it has.

The Ultra Recon Squad are interesting new additions. Perhaps an advanced (and possibly eviler) counterpart to the Aether Foundation?

I am much now more hyped for the game after months of admittedly underwhelming news.

Cool, thanks. xD

Here's an interesting question, what exactly is threatening Alola? It's interesting to note that the Recon Squad seem to appear sporadically throughout the story instead of just popping up all of a sudden during the climax. The "recon" in their title tells me that they are casing Alola, checking it out. Of course we also have the UB's that basically invade Alola and from the looks of things Lusamine may not be responsible for that this time. Necrozma also looks to be captured and weakened on the tower in Megaopolis like its being used for some sort of mechanism. So I got to thinking, since Necrozma stole the light from Ultra Megaopolis maybe the Recon Squad are attempting to invade Alola in the hopes of getting resources that are now nonexistent in Megaopolis. Because you know, you can't exactly have food and water without a sun.

I don't know, but the plot potential is looking really good. I'm trying not to guess too much because I'm at the point where I just want to discover it all for myself, SM was borderline underwhelming to me for the simple fact that we were almost spoiled with too much info.

And this is precisely why I also personally think it's way more fun to keep the plot a mystery and have the players find out for themselves. It feels more like an adventure if you genuinely don't know what's lurking behind every corner.

Unfortunately for SM, if it werent TPCi, then it was dataminers that leaked pretty much everything there is to know about the games. .__.

Probably, but we'll see what happens towards the end of this month and the beginning of next month, and whether or not everything will be spilled like in SM or not.

I think we'll have to wait and see, though I am surprised no Special Demo for US/UM hasn't even been announced yet. So maybe Game Freak will skip on it this time due to the S/M demo datamining incident.

Yeah, a demo is starting to look unlikely, but we do still have over a month left to go, so they could announce one closer to release (or even release the demo upon release for those on the fence about buying it on day one xD)

I'm pretty disappointed that Ultra Moon will be focusing on the moustache guy and not the... other guy. Then again they all look rather samey to me so I don't know if this should affect which game I get or not. Then again SM already had Kiawe locked behind Sun so maybe I'll get Sun this time if Sun is the game with focus on the guys.
