Kartana (カミツルギ Kamitsurugi) (codenamed UB-04 Blade) is a Grass/Steel-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is one of the two UB-04, the other being Celesteela.



Kartana is probably based off of a paper katana, namely Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi, a mythical sword in Japanese mythology. Either way, it is a very likely to be a type of origami.

Natural abilities

While Kartana may be regarded as tiny and not powerful, however, it is highly dangerous due to the fact that it could cut anything due to being infinitely sharp and thin. This has been displayed in and incident in which a Kartana cut down a steel tower with one stroke, probably without effort.


Kartana doesn't evolve.

Ultra Moon
Although it's alien to this world and a danger here, it's apparently a common organism in the world where it normally lives.

  • Kartana shares its typing with Ferroseed and Ferrothorn.
  • Kartana is the smallest of the Ultra Beasts.
  • Just as how certain other Ultra Beasts resemble human characters in the game, Kartana bears some resemblance to Gladion, with yellow growths on its body similar to Gladion's square cuts of hair, as well as its poses and its body resembling his jacket.
  • Kartana is the only Pokémon to learn Cut by leveling up.


Kartana appears to be based on an origami sculpture. Its Grass type could be based on the Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi, a famous sword in Japanese mythology or the fact that paper is often made of trees. It is also based off of samurai katana blades, know for their sharpness.


Kartana may be a combination of katana, cartolina (a type of art paper) and art.
