The past two days of Ultra Sun and Moon trailers have made me realize that I haven’t done anything yet to celebrate these upcoming games. Combine that with my recent reveal/focus on Sol Version, and it only seemed right to bring these two expanded versions together in one place. So without any further ado, I present to you the newest piece of bonus content, the Ultra Sun and Moon/Sol Version background.
Classification: The Nemesis Pokémon
Description: A destructive force that is the opposite of the Cosmic Architect. This Pokémon periodically causes mass extinctions on Earth.
Does Not Evolve
Trivia: Little is known about this mysterious Pokémon that opposes the Cosmic Architect in many ancient myths. It seems to be an entity of pure destruction and malice that lives on the extreme edge of the Solar System. It can exert its sinister influence over vast distances to cause rampant destruction. It is believed to be the cause the periodic mass extinctions that plague the Earth, including the one that wiped out the Fossil Pokémon.
Nemex’s name combines the concepts of Nemesis and Planet X, two theoretical celestial bodies on the fringe of the Solar System whose gravitational influence possibly leads to mass extinctions on Earth. Nemesis would be a brown dwarf star and Planet X a ninth planet. Concepts of both are woven into Nemex’s design. It is the second of Tenno’s event-exclusive Legendaries.
Signature Move and Ability:
The will of the user is exerted from afar, bringing disaster to the target.
Cycle of Destruction
All other Pokémon take damage at the end of each turn.
I know it’s been a long while, but this post is my way of promising that Nemex Unleashed is coming soon. It’s been a busy summer, but I’m back to work on writing. Shouldn’t be too much longer now.
Description: The ferns that encompass Ferntress now grow even stronger and gain additional strength by weaving into armor plating, increasing its Defense and Special Defense. The shields on its arms are the strongest points on its body. Its lower legs have also grown quite strong, so that it may better withstand incoming attacks.
Mega Stone: Ferntrite
Mega Ability: Bulletproof
Trivia: The claws on Mega Ferntress’ feet can dig down into the ground, to help it withstand incoming attacks without being forced back. While it may be able to walk on two legs after Mega Evolving, its large and bulky body is not optimized for this kind of movement. Therefore, its preference is to stand absolutely still and block any incoming attacks instead of dodging.
Classification: The Asteroid Pokémon
Description: According to myth, this Pokémon was originally a piece of rock in the asteroid belt that was given life by the Cosmic Architect. Now it serves the Architect by watching over the solar system.
Does not Evolve
Trivia: The name Showakusei comes from the Japanese word for asteroid. Showakusei lives deep beneath Tenno Minor in the Crater Cave, a recently discovered extension of the Crater Gate, where it guards a Grand Meteoric Shard, just like the other Cosmic Guardians.
Classification: The Flying Saucer Pokémon
Description: Even though it was only recently discovered, some claim that this Pokémon has been visiting Earth for the past 50 years, but was covered up by the government.
Does not evolve
Trivia: Yuifoe utilizes extra-dimensional physics to make its interior larger than its exterior, allowing for it to comfortably carry passengers, such as Elgyem, Beheeyem, and Eatyai. It can communicate with its passengers via telepathy. It has two eye-like sensors, one on each side of its “head,” which, combined with its ability to turn its “head” 360 degrees, allows it to see in all directions. Many UFO sightings around the world turn out to be this Pokémon instead, but since it comes from outer space, it might as well be a UFO sighting anyways.
Classification: The Cerebral Pokémon
Description: This Pokémon normally likes to remain hidden, so after someone sees it, it is known to visit them in the middle of the night and erase their memories of the encounter.
Evolves from Beheeyem by leveling up with a Yuifoe on the team
Trivia: While it normally uses the lights on its finger tips to communicate, certain patterns of flashing, combined with its mental powers, is what is used to manipulate, rewrite, or erase the memories of others. Despite the overwhelming evidence, skeptics still deny the possibility that it came from outer space.
Classification: The Antivenom Pokémon
Description: Heala may have a nasty venom, but they are better known for the natural antivenom they produce, which can neutralize nearly any poison.
Evolves into Curemodo at level 38
Trivia: Heala’s antivenom works not just to counteract the effects of venom, but other toxins, such as pollutants, poisons, and even radioactivity. Because of this, ample supplies of its antivenom are kept on hand at all time at most hospitals around the world.
Also, Heala’s signature move, Detox, has been added to the Atackdex.
