Shigeru Ohmori On Lillie’s Kanto Region Departure In Pokémon Sun And Moon
With Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon fast approaching, hopefully, many of you will have completed your adventure across the Alola region in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.
Now, director Shigeru Ohmori has spoken about the game’s ending, which saw players meet up with Lillie at the Hau’oli City ferry terminal, where she revealed that she was leaving to travel to the Kanto region.
Lillie wants to meet the Pokémon Storage System creator Bill, who she hopes can help her mother Lusamine’s recovery after she merged with the Ultra Beast, Nihilego.
Many have speculated over whether this had hinted at where Game Freak would steer the Pokémon series next, but Ohmori has now downplayed the event’s significance.
“It was an expression of the theme of meeting new people and departure, meeting and separating – short, fleeting relationships,” Ohmori explained to Game Informer in their September issue.
Pushed as to whether it could tease what we can expect from the series in the future, he laughed before adding: “I don’t know, I can’t say anything about that.”
Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS worldwide on November 17th.
