The new battle facility, known as the Battle Agency, allows the player to engage in three-on-three Single Battles using rental Pokémon. The variety of Pokémon that can be rented increases by connecting with other players locally or on the internet. As the player wins battles, their Grade goes up. By connecting with high Grade Trainers, players will be able to rent powerful Pokémon to use in battle. If the player wins lots of battles, they can fight the facility's boss, Sophocles. Players can earn prizes by battling at this facility, including Gold Bottle Caps.
Players will be able to collect Totem Stickers, which are located all around the Alola region. Based on how many stickers they have collected, players will be able to obtain totem-like Pokémon. Which totem-like Pokémon are available differ between Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon; for example, totem-like Lurantis is exclusively available in Pokémon Ultra Sun, while totem-like Salazzle is exclusively available in Pokémon Ultra Moon (notably, Lurantis appears as a Totem Pokémon at the end of a trial in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon while Salazzle appears to have been replaced).
Several of these Pokémon only appear when the player has other Legendary Pokémon: Suicune (with Raikou and Entei present), Rayquaza (with Groudon and Kyogre present), Giratina (with Dialga and Palkia present), Kyurem (with Reshiram and Zekrom present), Landorus (with Tornadus and Thundurus present).
Finally, it was announced that the next major reveal of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon information will be on November 10 at 2 pm (JST).
