Original story:

As part of the celebrations surrounding Pokémon's 2017 World Championships, The Pokémon Company revealed some new details about Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

It's not much, but you can see some snippets of new gameplay, get a better look at the new look for the protagonists, and learn a little more about Lycanroc’s new form. Apparently only certain Rockruffs will be able to do the special evolution.

The game's website also offers some more small ambiguous details about the game saying it will have, "new additions to the story and features of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon," and that more secrets will be revealed for the Alola region. Here's a larger version of the video clip seen above.
