the new installment in the core Pokémon games has launched worldwide. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are now available all across the globe, more features, content and better post game to the already critically acclaimed Alola region.

Despite their earlier statement and despite the recent introduction of Alolan clothes in Pokémon GO, Niantic still hasn’t announced anything new for GO.

As a reminder, this was stated earlier this week on the official Niantic’s blog:

We–the Pokémon GO development team–want to say that we are 100% committed to creating an ever-changing and growing game that gets our players exploring, meeting each other, and deepening their connection to the Pokémon universe. We’re actively expanding the Pokémon GO development team to build many more amazing features in 2018. Stay tuned for an update next week on upcoming improvements to certain features.

In other news, the USUM installment seems to be one of the best additions to the core game series in a while, with critical scores in the high 90s.

If (or when) Niantic announces anything new, we’ll let you know.
