Some of the Legendary Pokemon that you can encounter differ, depending on which game you’re playing. By exploring both Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon, you can encounter and catch all the Legendary Pokemon that appeared in previous Pokemon series games. Legendary Pokemon Can Change Forms, Too! Some Pokemon can temporarily release the power hidden within to change their appearances and stats through various phenomena, triggering Mega Evolution and unleashing power that could never be gained by normal Evolution, or undergoing Primal Reversion to waken the true power they held in ancient times. Special Legendary Encounters Most of the Legendary Pokemon that you can encounter await you in the worlds beyond Ultra Wormholes, but some Legendary Pokemon can be encountered when you fulfill special conditions.

Fans fear a lot of things in regards to their favorite franchise. A new direction, retcons/reboots, spinoffs and most importantly, the eventual end. Over the years Metroid has faced most of these things and managed to remain strong. Sure, Metroid: Other M and Metroid Prime: Federation Force are better left forgotten, the Metroid Prime trilogy is one of the most celebrated changes in franchise direction. Despite the praise, it looked like Nintendo gave up on the franchise. With years of silence between Metroid: Other M and Metroid Prime: Federation Force, Nintendo revealed the often requested Metroid Prime 4 and Metroid: Samus Returns, a reimaging of Metroid II: Return of Samus. With improved visuals, amiibo support and the benefit of a second screen, is Metroid: Samus Returns a return to form or a desperate attempt of cashing in on the franchise? Taking place after the events of Metroid, Samus arrives on a distant planet with the intention of wiping out the remaining Metroids. At first this looks to be easy, but the formerly simple enemies have changed and appear behind a number of puzzles, making for a thrilling adventure. After watching a brief explanation of what happened in Metroid and introduced to the basic elements of the story, the world starts to open up. True to the metroidvania genre, there might only be one or two ways forward, with a number of paths that can be explored at a later time. This makes exploration a lot of fun, as there is a sense of wonder to each puzzle. Seemingly complicated puzzles are solved by simple mechanics, such as bombs while rolling, charged blasts or just different elements. How well you pay attention to your surroundings and world will have a direct impact on how many puzzles/secrets you find. The ability to scan the local area for alternate routes will often help solve puzzles, locate secrets or just give players an idea of what’s to come. All of these things work very well with the second screen.
There's a healthy selection of new software headed to both Nintendo platforms over the next few months, including Project Octopath Traveler, DOOM, Minecraft 3DS and much more.

As seen on the official Japanese website, it says "all production ended". Before you get scared, they are only ending production for the normal size. The XL version of the console is here to stay. Not to mention the company just released the New Nintendo 2DS XL console too. That console should still be alive for the foreseeable future.
