This means info beyond that which was officially revealed. So the recent leaks. Please no story spoilers though.

Do you mean only version-exclusive Pokémon/UBs?

While this list is likely not 100% complete, these are all of the differences I know of. I will add more if more are found.


Version-Exclusive Pokémon / Ultra Beasts
Sun: Passimian, Tortunator, Lycanroc-Midday, Alolan Vulpix, Alolan Ninetales, Solgaleo, UB-02 Expansion
Moon: Oranguru, Drampa, Lycanroc-Midnight, Alolan Sandshrew, Alolan Sandslash, Lunala, UB-02 Beauty

UPDATE: Today's CoroCoro leak showcased two more Ultra Beasts, Kartana and Celesteela. Above Kartana was a picture of Sun, and above Celesteela was a picture of Moon. While there is no confirmation that these two UBs are version-exclusives, it appears to be that way.

Version-Exclusive Features

• The clock for Sun is set normally relative to our world. Noon in real life is noon in the game, etc.
• Gumshoos is a totem Pokémon.
• Events of the story revolve around Solgaleo.
• The clock for Moon is 12 hours behind ours. Noon in real life is midnight in the game, etc.
• Instead of Gumshoos, the totem is Alolan Raticate.
• Events of the story revolve around Lunala.


As far as I can tell, that is all.

Aww, Ninetales is only in Sun? What a shame. Also, you mean Raticate, not Rattata.
Thanks for catching that :)
How did you know that Tortunator,Drampa,Alolan Vulpix, Alolan Ninetales, Alolan Sandshrew and Alolan Sandslash are version exclusive?
Um, he did put a source.. but to put it briefly, dataminers and leaks.
I guess I wasn't too clear on that, my bad. As Kip said, there's been a huge slew of leaks from people who got early copies of the game, and among them were version-exclusive Pokémon. I have also updated my list with today's CoroCoro speculation.
@Astronautical UB-02 Expansion?
