* So you've finally tracked the Nebby/Necrozma fusion to Ultra Megalopolis and climbed Megalo Tower to confront it, only to see it seemingly absorbing energy. It then extracts a core-like object from its own forehead and uses it to transform into a [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons GIANT LIGHT DRAGON]] that then proceeds to ''fight you.'' The battle that ensues is easily one of the most epic fights in the game, with you and your team facing down the ungodly powerful Ultra Necrozma, all while [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFTemk99fLU this music]] plays.

** On the subject of Ultra Necrozma, its Z-Move, "Light that Burns the Sky," looks like something ripped straight out of Anime/DragonBallZ. In short, it has 52 seconds of Necrozma draining the light from all its surroundings to power a '''giant energy ball that it uses to straight up NUKE its opponent.''' To make things even better, the move is so powerful that the player character is physically drained after giving Necrozma the Z-power to use it.

* It's one thing in the Pokemon games for the player, usually a mere 10 or 11-year-old trainer that had started their journey not long ago, to defeat the major villain, who happens to be leader of the most dangerous criminal organization in their region, perhaps two, depending on the game. It is something on a whole different level for Pokemon games that the player in ''Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon'' to defeat '''''eight''''' major villains[[note]]In chronological order: Guzma, Lusamine, Archie and Maxie, Cyrus and Lysandre, Ghetsis and finally Giovanni[[/note]] in their journey, '''six''' of them in a very short succession (and while each of the latter siz have a [[OlympusMons Legendary Pokemon]] in their teams, no less). And just like in ''Sun and Moon'', this player also happens to be able to challenge and defeat three Pokemon Champions[[note]]Red, Blue and Cynthia[[/note]]. The ''Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon'' protagonist's accomplishments make them a OneManArmy at worst.

* When Ghetsis threatens to kill Lillie if the player doesn't throw away their Pokéball's, he notices that they're '''''[[PapaWolf shaking]]''''' '''''[[MamaBear furiously]]'''''. You've seen Pokémon happily taking part in battles and other events, but it would seem that Ghetsis in particular has a thing about driving both humans ''and'' Pokémon to pure fury, especially when he threatens to kill a dear friend that your Pokémon have bonded with over the course of the story. Also counts as [[Heartwarming/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon Heartwarming.]]

* In the originals, we have a scene where the Kahuna's fought the Ultra Beast together with the respective Island Tapu's off-screen. But here, we get to see the other Kahuna's at the Ruins facing the Ultra Beast themselves before the scenes switched out to an OffscreenMomentOfAwesome. Not only that, Hau isn't left out of the Climax of the game this time around, as he fought with Tapu Koko against the Ultra Beast that appeared in front of them!
