But of course, something to keep in mind is that "how they appeared in ORAS" was still in physical chambers or rooms of some sort, with the exception of the Spacetime and Kami trios. The Hoopa rings were just the explanation of how those Legendaries got there (as opposed to creating all-new elements like the Strange House or the Underground Ruins in order to justify it) and an easy all-purpose overworld model that they could use for every Legendary.The appearance of Mewtwo on the new "trailer" makes me think the Ultra Wormhole Legendaries will be exactly like the Hoopa Holes.
We speculated that maybe they would create mini rooms for the Legendaries to be in, (Cerulean Cave for Mewtwo, Dragon Spiral Tower for the Unova Dragons, Origin Cave for the Groudon / Kyogre) but the battle background for Mewtwo seems to look like the Ultra wormholes and doesn't look like a cave, which probably means we wont see the Legendaries in their original resting rooms but instead they'll appear like how they did in ORAS.
I don't think it's realistic to expect that we'll get the whole Cerulean Cave, Bell Tower, Whirl Islands, Dragonspiral Tower, etc. dungeons. At most, I think maybe we'll just get the "summit" of each one with some nice graphics, but having generic cave or forest rooms that use the dream cloud background for battles wouldn't surprise me. At any rate, I don't think they're just going to be balls of light floating around in the wormhole that we bump into to initiate an encounter. I think we will enter physical chambers to find them in. Given the graphical scale of the games, they won't be very impressive (I anticipate something more-or-less the size of the average Mirage Spot), but still.
Granted, it also mentioned Alolan Oddish and who knows how that's going at this point after THAT interview, but a post from a while ago in this thread which detailed some more Chinese forum discussions did say that we'd find Giratina in the Distortion World.
