Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon were originally announced during a brief Pokémon Direct on June 6, 2017. According to director Kazumasa Iwao, the games were developed by a staff of around 80 people total, around half the size of the team that worked on the original Sun and Moon.
Game Freak director Shigeru Ohmori has stated that the team believes that they have pushed the Nintendo 3DS system to the absolute limits of its capabilities after previously having thought so with Pokémon X and Y and Pokémon Sun and Moon, calling them "the culmination of our work with the 3DS system."
