This morning, the Pokemon GO YouTube channel teased the debut of the first Ultra Beast in a relatively short 15-second trailer. It looks like the rock/poison type Nihilego will be the first of the Ultra Beasts to be introduced in Pokemon GO. At the end of the trailer, we also see the back of a trainer clad in Ultra Recon Squad style pants, jacket and helmet.
That debut had to happen sooner rather than later, as Pokémon native to the Alola region made their appearance in Pokémon GO earlier this year, and they’ve already made it through the four Guardian Deity Legendaries. But now that Ultra Beasts are on the way, there’s no telling what impact they might have on the game.
The Ultras Beasts are a group of Pokémon that originated in Ultra Space. In Sun and Moon, these creatures would come through Ultra Wormholes and could be found anywhere in Alola. It’s currently unclear if there will be a new mechanic for the Ultra Beasts to make their counters like the mainline games, or if they’ll only be added to five-star raids like Legendary Pokemon.
We already know that Nihilego is coming soon, but that leaves 10 more Ultra Beasts to announce. Below is a list of each, yet to be revealed.
- Buzzswole (bug/combat)
- Pherosma (bug/combat)
- Xurkitree (electric)
- Celesteela (Steel/Flying)
- Kartana (Grass/Steel)
- Guzzlord (Dark/Dragon)
- Poipole (Poison)
- Nagandel (Poison/Dragon)
- Stakataka (Stone/Steel)
- Blacephalon (Fire/Spirit)
