Ursaluna’s Special Move Evolution
To be able to evolve your Ursaluna with it’s special movie High Horsepower, a Charged Attack, you have to do so during a full moon. Thankfully there will be a full moon in the nights sky for the 17th and 18th. So if you evolve the Ursaring between 2:00 pm through 6:00 am on the 17th, or 2:00 pm through 9:00 pm on the 18th, you will receive this pokemon with it’s special move.
So, hopefully, you’ve been hoarding those Candies!
Speaking of coverage, you can see information about all of these Pokemon right here on the site! Check out our ever updating and always evolving (Pun intended) Pokedex, right Here! Hopefully, this helps you prepare for new Team members so you know what to save those Pokeballs for! If you want to check out any specific Pokemon, though, I’ve compiled a list of this year’s stars specifically!
Phew! Quite the line-up! Hopefully you can grab any Shinies you’ve been missing so far!
As always, Trainers! I wish you the absolute best of luck out there!
