Are you a bad enough dude to
Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are revised versions of Pokémon Sun and Moon, adding new Z-moves, a wider variety of Pokémon to catch, a new storyline featuring the notorious Team (Rainbow) Rocket, an expanded Ultra Space, the secrets of Necrozma, and more.
Unobtainable Shiny Pokémon
For the sake of consistency, every Pokémon in every Pokémon game is given a Shiny variant. Most Shiny Pokémon have been obtainable through random chance encounters or event distributions, including most Legendary Pokémon. However, a few Pokémon cannot be obtained in this form without hacking, and as a consequence, normal players would never be able to see their Shiny coloration.
- Zygarde - The Zygarde given to you on Route 16 cannot be Shiny, no matter how it is reassembled using the Zygarde Cube, and the static Zygarde encounter in Resolution Cave is also Shiny-locked. However, a Shiny Zygarde was later distributed to Generation VII games as part of an event, and can be obtained legitimately in-game via Dynamax Adventures in Sword & Shield.
- Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, Tapu Fini, Solgaleo, Lunala, and Necrozma - These Legendary Pokemon, all fought via in-game static encounters, are all Shiny-locked. However, Shiny formes were distributed to players during events, and they can all be legitimately obtained in-game through Dynamax Adventures in Sword & Shield.
- Cosmog and Cosmoem - Cosmog can be obtained as a gift after the game's completion, however, it's also locked to never be Shiny. Being that the only way to obtain Cosmoem is to evolve Cosmog, the player can't obtain a Shiny variant of this Pokémon either.
- Magearna (Both Formes): Event Pokémon are Shiny-locked, so the player can not obtain a Shiny Magearna by any means.
- Normal Form Magearna’s Shiny palette is likely unoptimized or a placeholder. Renders from Pokémon HOME would give this still-unobtainable Shiny a proper altered-color palette.

- Marshadow - As with Magearna, Marshadow is an Event Pokemon and cannot be obtained as Shiny. Note that the Shiny coloration isn't a visible change until it attacks, with its body flashing purple as opposed to green.
- Zeraora - As with Magearna, Zeraora is an Event Pokémon, and a Shiny Zeraora is therefore unobtainable. Shiny Zeraora would later be distributed to players in Sword and Shield as part of an event.
Eternal Flower Floette
Post the actual QR code that unlocks its entry. It exists out there and works fully.
Eternal Flower Floette still remains in the data and received entries for the Pokédex with the addition of the Flabébé line to the Alola Pokédex. Interestingly, the Pokédex entry for Eternal Flower Floette has a working Pokédex QR code which, when scanned with the QR scanner, unlocks said entry. However, the QR code that unlocks it is different to the one that it displays (shown in the image), which appears to be Red Flower Floette's QR code, for whatever reason.
The flower it's holding can no longer be found blooming anywhere. It's also thought to contain terrifying power.
Terrifying energy is concealed within its ominous flower, but Floette still swings it about innocently.
Unreleased Hidden Abilities
In the Generation VII games, it is possible to find Pokémon with special "hidden Abilities". However, some Pokémon can not be obtained with their hidden Abilities through any legitimate means, rendering the hidden Abilities unused in normal gameplay.
|Pokémon||Regular Ability||Hidden Ability|
|Heatran||Flash Fire||Flame Body|
|Tapu Koko||Electric Surge||Telepathy|
|Tapu Lele||Psychic Surge||Telepathy|
|Tapu Bulu||Grassy Surge||Telepathy|
|Tapu Fini||Misty Surge||Telepathy|
Unused Static Encounters
Data for the Necrozma & Ultra Beast encounters from Pokémon Sun & Moon's postgame are still present in the game's static encounter table, despite Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon relocating the Ultra Beasts to their own unique locations within Ultra Space, and Necrozma to Mt. Lanakila.
Fire/Water Pledge Silvally
The move tutor in Hau'oli City, who normally teaches the moves Grass Pledge, Fire Pledge or Water Pledge to a type-matching starter Pokémon or the Pansage/Pansear/Panpour trio, was intended to teach Silvally all three moves at the same time. However, there is no programming that would make this work and as a result, Silvally can only be taught Grass Pledge and misses out on the other two moves.
Murkrow gained the ability to learn Punishment as an egg move in these games. Normally, that wouldn't be notable, as you can just breed with the appropriate parents to pass down the respective move to the offspring.
However, no male Pokémon in Murkrow's egg group can learn the move to pass it down. Vullaby and Mandibuzz can learn the move, but as a female-only species, they cannot pass down the move.
Light of Ruin
Due to the fact that Eternal Flower Floette remains unavailable, its signature move (which it learns at level 50) is also unobtainable. It is a Special move with 140 base power, 90% accuracy, 5 PP, and the user takes half the damage the opponents take in recoil. It is the only Special move to deal recoil damage to the user. Notably, a Twinkle Tackle based on Light of Ruin has a base power of 200, making it the strongest of all Fairy-type moves. Its animation was also updated from earlier generations.
Drawing power from the Eternal Flower, the user fires a powerful beam of light. This also damages the user quite a lot.

- Wide Guard now only lowers damage for Clangorous Soulblaze, the only multi-target Z-Move, instead of lowering for all Z-Moves.
- Ion Deluge does not always fail anymore.
- The Move Tutors no longer overwrite the first move of Pokémon with less than four moves.
- Choosing Litten as the starter Pokémon does not crash the game anymore.
This patch was released on February 7, 2018.
- Online battles no longer crash when using Curse, String Shot, Forest's Curse, and Power Trick, thus lifting the temporary ban of these moves from tournaments.
