The Ultra Beasts are extra-dimensional creatures that appear in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon in the wormhole. They can become abnormally powerful...

Ultra Beasts

The Ultra Beasts, in lore, are extra-dimensional creatures that arrive through Ultra Space Wormholes. According to research, the Ultra Beasts have knowledge that transcends that of humans. No one knows exactly why they’re in the Alola Region. However, they are seen to have heightened abilities that can exceed Pokemon if angered enough.

In order to fight the Ultra Beasts, the Alola Region created the UB Task Force. The UB Task Force would then respond to any sighting of the Ultra Beasts that appeared. Hence, they began what they called the Beast Killer Project. The Beast Killer Project involved the UB Task Force creating the Pokemon Type: Full in order to fight them. However, the project ended in a failure which led to the renaming of the Pokemon to Type: Null and the creation of the Beast Ball.

Tips on Catching theUltra Beasts

  2. If you have one pokemon that’s super effective to it, make sure you have one at the same level of the Ultra Beasts to prevent over-kills.
  3. Have one of your Pokemon learn False Swipe. Most particularly, have your tanky one learn it. In doing so, it can sustain the damage as you desperately try to catch the Ultra Beasts.
  4. One of your Pokemon should have any move that puts the Ultra Beast to sleep or to paralyze. Using the other conditions such as Burn, Poison, and Confuse may end up killing the Ultra Beasts. If insistent, make sure the Ultra Beast is at least 20% HP.
