Posted in

Trainers, there’s been reports of Ultra Wormholes appearing over Berlin, Seattle and Sapporo! Can you guess what that means? New Ultra Beasts are coming soon to Pokémon GO!

New Ultra Beasts

Nihilego (also known as UB-01) made its Pokémon GO debut during Global Pokémon GO Fest, but new Ultra Beasts are going to be released pretty soon as a part of the Special Research available to Pokémon GO Fest attendees.

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

But don’t worry, these Ultra Beasts won’t be GO Fest exclusive Pokémon for too long. After these Ultra Beasts debut during their respective in-person Pokémon GO Fest events, they will appear globally later in the Season of GO. So even if you can’t attend any of these events, you will be able to catch them later.

Beast Balls are coming to Pokémon GO!

For the first time since 2017, new Pokéballs are coming to Pokémon GO. Rhi of the GO Ultra Recon Squad has created a limited number of Beast Balls, which are a special kind of Poké Ball especially crafted to catch Ultra Beasts.

Beast Balls will help in-person Pokémon GO Fest attendees catch an Ultra Beast as part of the Special Research available during each in-person Pokémon GO Fest event.
