Ultra Beasts are coming to Pokémon GO Fest celebrations around the world!


Ultra Wormholes are appearing in the sky, and we’ve noticed that more of them are appearing over Berlin, Seattle, and Sapporo. This can only mean one thing: more Ultra Beasts are coming!

What are Ultra Beasts?

Ultra Beasts are mysterious Pokémon originating from Ultra Space. One such Ultra Beast, Nihilego, made its first appearance during Pokémon GO Fest, but it appears that others may soon emerge…

Pokémon GO Fest events attract Ultra Beasts

Trainers attending the following Pokémon GO Fest events can expect to encounter an Ultra Beast as a part of their Special Research.

After these Ultra Beasts debut during their respective in-person Pokémon GO Fest events, they will appear globally later in the Season of GO.

Beast Balls are coming to Pokémon GO!

Cooperation breeds innovation! After working together with you to confront Nihilego,Rhi of the GO Ultra Recon Squad has created a limited number of Beast Balls—a special kind of Poké Ball—to help in-person Pokémon GO Fest attendees catch an Ultra Beast as part of Special Research during each in-person Pokémon GO Fest event.
