The first piece of official news regarding Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon news will be revealed as early as tonight, August 5. Pokémon Sun and Moon director Shigeru Ohmori will appear on the next episode of the Japanese show Pokénchi, which airs tomorrow, August 6, at 8 a.m. JST – which will be tonight in the U.S. in around 10 hours.
Ohmori will talk about the latest Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon information and is expected to reveal a “shocking announcement” regarding the Pokémon Sun and Moon anime. His segment won’t likely happen until the end of the show, which will be around 8:30 a.m.
There’s been a few theories – along with a blurry magazine scan – that indicate that Lycanroc will be receiving a new form, and Ash’s Rockruff will evolve into said form in the next episode scheduled to air in Japan on Thursday.
