Posted by Cat333Pokémon on September 12, 2016 at 4:54 PM
In the latest CoroCoro magazine leak, it was revealed that Rockruff will be getting a new evolution named Lugarugan
(ルガルガン) with two different forms. By day it's in its Midday Form (真昼の姿), by night in its Midnight Form (真夜中の姿).
In addition, Ultra Beast UB-02 Beauty
and UB-02 Expansion
will fight against Tapu Koko.
Next, the anime was renewed for a Sun & Moon season. Serena will no longer be traveling with Ash. Instead, he will be going to school on course for graduation.
Finally, there is mention of Pokémon GO and how the Pokémon characters in it (specifically, Generation 1) will "make a serious effort" (本気を出す) in Sun & Moon in their Alolan forms. It is not a confirmation of transferring Pokémon from GO to Sun & Moon, but merely an advertisement of Sun & Moon for the Pokémon GO players.

Clarified that transferring Pokémon from GO to Sun & Moon is not confirmed.
The evolutions are version-exclusive.
