    So I watched a Youtuber explain that Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon might be in an alternative universe, one where apparently the new bad team will be Team Rainbow with Lillie as the leader of the team. I honestly think this is a bad idea, because Lillie is so sweet and it would be weird to see her as a villain in the new games. Has anyone else seen this rumor about Team Rainbow? More importantly do you believe it? What kind of story would you want the game to have if it were at alternative universe?

    Well we know it's going to be an alternate story, ergo an alternate universe. Team Rainbow though? Please no. I detest the thought of that idea. There is nothing about Lillie that would make the idea of her leading an antagonistic team plausible even in an alternate universe. Gladion has the bigger chance of leading a villain team.

    I do hope that's not the case. I really liked Lillie in Sun and Moon, and seeing her as a villain would feel odd to me... Whatever this alternate universe has in store though, I hope the story will be just as good if not better than Sun and Moon.

    Ooh, an alternate universe...that sounds exciting. Guess we'll have to see. But I haven't heard anything about the Team Rainbow thing.

    My current theory is that the phrasing of an "alternate story" is purposely misleading and that it's really going to be more of an expanded retelling of Sun/Moon that divulges near the end. They will mostly follow the same events as S/M, but some details will be changed early on and some characters might get redesigns. We might get some changes to the Trail Captains and Kahunas as well. As the story progresses, Necrozma will get involved somehow which will heavily alter the plot near the climax, but what will happen after that is anyone's guess.

    This is complete speculation. Aside from the Dusk Lycanroc, there has been no news. Or at least confirmed. All I know is that there would be an alternate story. Maybe Lillie returns and is the rival for the new protagonist. That would be actually quite a shock.

    Yeah I know its a rumor, I was just curious to see if anyone has heard of it and what they think. I am honestly glad it is a rumor because it seems like a horrible idea. But Lillie being your rival in the games.... hmm... It would be a shock and a step up from her original personality.

    but if it is an alternate story, it could actually happen. USM might be the sequel to SM like BW2 were to BW. Which is that I am hoping, because I want them to expand the region more.

    I really hope Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon really do take place in an alternate universe. I still remember from how in the reveal it was described to have an 'alternate story', but the lack of news is misleading... but who knows? I like to think the news are rarely posted so that all the important stuff will be hidden from us.
    Gotta love it when Game Freak pulls the surprise card on us, after all.

    I've never heard about Team Rainbow before. But if it does exist, I really hope Lillie isn't the leader. It just feels wrong for a character like her to be evil, even in an alternate universe.

    I actually kind of want Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon to be a prequel, though that's pretty unlikely.

    Pretty sure that it's already been confirmed that it is an alternate universe

    Team Rainbow, huh. It'd be interesting, and Lillie would make a freaking CUTTHROAT villain. However, I doubt it.
    Can you send the link to the video?
    And the catchphrase would be NEBBY IN THE BAG

    If The Game Really In The Alternate Universe,Possibly There Is Why Necrozma Trying To Be The Main Legendary Pokémon(Maybe That's Why It Fuse With Solgaleo/Lunala) And Mimikyu's Original Form Expose.

    For everyone wondering where the video is:









    but like I said it is all rumors just wondering if anyone thinks it is true.

    Remember the portal you went through in Sun and Moon to get Cosmog? Is it possible that portal took you into the world of Ultra Sun and Moon? There's a theory.

    I want to say that US/M will be a alternate universe, but I don't think Team Rainbow will be a thing.

    I don't think Lillie is capable of leading an evil team, even in an alternate universe, but that's a unique idea! I think these stories do take place in alternate universes though, since they have alternate plot lines.

    Yeah, I don't think Pokémon is bold enough to make Lillie a bad person. She's one of the most favorite characters in SM, so to change her personality that much... I don't know, that seems like a risky move. As much as I'd like to see her different, I don't think that she should have her own evil team. Maybe she could be a more confident trainer, but not team leader.
