Maybe, just maybe, Ultra SuMo does take places years after SuMo and gives these 2nd gen mons ample time to adapt and giving them alolan forms in the process.One thing that I think that proves the rumor wrong is the fact that they say that there is an Alolan Yanma, but they never mention an Alolan Yanmega. Another bit the caught my eye was that it said that Ariados and Sudowoodo had regional variants even though they were already in Alola in Sun and Moon, thus making it less likely that they will get new regional variants. Plus the official description for the ability Battle Bond mentions that the Pokémon transforms into Ash Greninja and that its Water Shuriken becomes more powerful.
It worked for SM because we didn't even know what the box mascots were. Now we do, so they can't pull the same thing again.But anyway...If the coro coro news will be JUST the boxarts,i will be very disappointed...
I've seen the post you were talking about, but isn't that moreso speculation than a rumor?Mmm,there is a rumor going around that the guy that directed BW2 is directing Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon,because he is the only one that got the ultra forms of the gen7 legends on his twitter background...Ohmori and masuda don't have those two as background pics...
well,rumor mixed with speculation...I guess?It worked for SM because we didn't even know what the box mascots were. Now we do, so they can't pull the same thing again.

It would make sense, though.
I'm waiting for a video to be dropped any minute. It's been a month since announcement, Coro Coro comes in a week. Between today and Sunday I expect something. pls
For some reason this is what I envision happening. It allows them three solid months of huge marketing, and in Japan everything will have moved past the boring sounding M20. I really think that's what has held TCP/GF from doing any major activities regarding USUM: not wanting to distract from the movie.I am going to guess August as the first trailer dropping. I hope I'm wrong though.
I doubt it, the movie will have it screening in Japan, I don't think we'll get any more news from that, maybe we'll get some US/UM around Corocoro Week (Which is next week), it wouldn't be fair to wait till August to get some news. With the the lack of info of US/UM last month, I doubt they'll wait till August to reveal some information.In that case. I don't think we'll see any announcements at all then, considering that the movie might be relevant for a long time (for better or worse), but then again I don't know if theatrical releases work differently in Japan.
