Niantic Tease Ultra Beasts Coming to Pokémon GO!

Posted in

In a surprise teaser dropped today on various social media channels, we have a teaser for something brand new in Pokémon GO, Ultra Beasts! The Ultra Beasts are a group of extradimensional Pokémon that originally come from Ultra Space. They possess power that is beyond humans’ understanding of the world. They appear from Ultra Wormholes in Alola, a hint of what is to come for the next season?


The teaser features Ultra Beast Nihilego, a Rock and Poison type Legendary Pokémon. The below stats are subject to change as Niantic may tweak them before Nihilego appears in game, but are correct at time of writing. Ultra Beasts are potentially going to be massively game changing, so as we get more information, we will have full meta analysis for each Ultra Beast in the future.
