Aether Foundation, Poké Finder and Ultra Beasts Debut on Latest Pokémon Sun & Moon Video

The latest Pokémon Sun & Moon video from The Official Pokémon Channel is chock full of new information and debuts.

Two new pokémon were revealed: the Chimera-like and oddly named Type: Null; and the Korean heart crested dragon Jangmo-o. Alolan Raticate was also confirmed, following the reveal of Alolan Rattata on past video.


This Pokémon wearing a mask has been dubbed “Null,” meaning nothing.

The shapes of its front and hind legs are clearly different. The reason is that Type: Null was constructed to synthesize the strengths of various Pokémon, enabling it to adapt to any situation.

The mask fitted to Type: Null’s head is a piece of equipment designed to control its latent powers. It’s extremely heavy, so it also serves to hinder Type: Null’s agility.

To complete a certain mission, there was need of a Pokémon powerful enough to rival those Pokémon often spoken of in mythology.


Jangmo-o has the pride of a warrior, although it remains humble about its capabilities. In its pursuit to become stronger, it never neglects its training.

Because Jangmo-o uses the scales on its head for both offense and defense, it never turns its back to its enemies. Many Trainers see this behavior and take it as proof that Jangmo-o is a valiant Pokémon.

Jangmo-o gather in harsh locales like canyons, where no other people or Pokémon are around, to live together as they train.

The Aether Foundation is a Pokémon care and protection organization that is established on the artificial island Aether Paradise, situated in the middle of the Alola region islands. They provide shelter for injured or hunted Pokémon and also perform several kinds of research. They act as the counterpart to Team Skull and they’re led by the charismatic president Lusamine. Other Aether Foundation members were also revealed, such as the Brach Chiefs Wicke and Faba.


A new Team Skull member made it’s appearance, Gladion. Not much is know about him, but he seems to be the Enforcer of the team.


It was also revealed that Pokémon Sun & Moon will differ more than just the Pokémon that are available on each version. While Pokémon Sun runs on the same clock of your Nintendo 3ds, Pokémon Moon will be 12 hours ahead. Players will also experience different events depending of your game version.

Dexio and Sina, Professor Sycamore assistants from Pokémon X & Y, will return and introduce you to a Zygarde related quest, where you will hunt Zygarde Cells and Core with the help of a Zygarde Cube.


The Poké Finder will be a mini game where you can take pictures with the help of your Rotom Dex. Special spots will allow you to take pictures of Pokémon be graded for their quality, it a style similar to the N64 Pokémon Snap game. The better the picture the more points you earn, unlocking new features like zooming.


For last, a new kind of mysterious Pokémon was introduced: Ultra Beasts. The first of the kind to be revealed was UB-01.


B-01’s body is composed of a glass-like substance. However, it’s constantly changing shapes, never settling on one.

While evidence of something like a survival instinct can be observed in UB-01, no one knows whether it has a will of its own or any emotions. It’s said that, for some reason, its movements resemble those of a young girl.

Pokémon Sun & Moon will be released on November 23, 2016 for the Nintendo 3DS.

    I was always disappointed that there was never a sequel to Pokemon Snap.

    Incorporating it as a feature into the main games is very acceptable though. Just hope there’s lots of areas you can take pictures.

    Gladion and Lusamine look like they might be brother and sister. Wonder what’s going on there.

    Also I love how edgy Gladion his.

    I’m liking this gen more and more. Introducing new Pokemon while simultaneously updating old ones… the only thing missing are the confirmation of Mega Pokemon that a loft of people are waiting for.

    Like the 2nd Gen starters, or Flygon.

    Yeah. I know a lot of people don’t like Mega Pokemon for the powercreep it brought the meta, but it’s the only way for some Pokemon to actually be viable for play.

    Of course, one would wonder why Salamence or Scizor needs a Mega form.

    Betting Team Skull isn’t actually the enemy, it’s Aether Foundation. They provide shelter to injured and hunted Pokemon, oh and they do research on ?, and completely unrelated here’s Mewtwo all over again and a crazy strange thing that has never been seen before. Oh, and the whole Boss, Admin, male and female Grunt layout of them. Yeah, not suspicious at all.

    Team Skull is Chaos and Team Aether is Law. The UB pokemon are clearly angels.

    We Shin Megami Tensei now.

    Shame that you’re probably stuck on the Neutral route, but ah well.

    I’d wait and see what they do with it before I’d call it acceptable. It’s likely just gonna be Pokemon simply standing around with nothing special about finding them.
    Oh wait, there is something but I wanna lure and throw stuff to piss them off and I don’t think they’ll do much but a small bit off to the side.

    Need Rule 34 of Lusamine. Honestly the only thing I am hyped for is the Hyper Training and Solgaleo looks cool but that’s about it.

    Or Rayquza. Motherfucker broke the fucking metagame when its mega form was introduced.

    what’s so sad is that nintendo had the best device imaginable for a pokemon snap game

    it’s about the only game in the universe that would actually make the gamepad worth the extra $140 it costs the wiiu

    September 6, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    the chimera looks odd but it sounds cool, hopefully they give it enough backstory because it could be quite interesting

    the little dragon dude is cool, he actually looks like more of a regular dragon

    If he had to hold an item to mega evolve, then Ubers would be fine. But nope, all you have to do is to is learn a move every Rayquaza wants to learn.

    I just want Mega Arceus for the lulz more than anything.

    September 6, 2016 at 7:32 pm

    How much do you wanna bet either their research is leading down a bad road and Team Skull are misunderstood, or both sides are causing their own kind of trouble.

    It might be Team Magma and Aqua all over again.

    they both seem like true villains but aether might be the more villanous

    skulls are openly thugs, they’ll trash your town and drop dope beats
    aether is google, using technology and money to gain influence and eventually go full skynet

    I dont like the Megas cause I feel most of them should just be actual evolutions to make them more viable over all instead of just being meta pvp balancers.

    They seem like it, but then so were Team Aqua and Magma.

    They had good intentions too. Skull is a band of misfits, so they may be trying to prove themselves, which could be anything from conquering Alola to stopping Aether from making a mess of things.

    This wouldn’t be the first time the “bad guys” turn out to be the real good guys, or the “good guys” aren’t so good after all.

    I have a feeling Aether is going to do something that causes major problems (involving those Ultra Beasts), and then Team Skull is going to end up helping to save the day.
