An Ultra Beast (Japanese: ウルトラビースト Urutora Bīsuto) is a type of creature introduced in Generation VII and was revealed on September 6, 2016. They are Pokémon native to a vastly different dimension to the world of the games, causing them to develop as very strange, and often very strong, species.
In the Alola region, rumors are flying about mysterious creatures known as Ultra Beasts. Ultra Beasts possess mighty powers and could pose a threat to humans and Pokémon, so they are feared. It appears that the Aether Foundation is also conducting research on these Ultra Beasts.
As later revealed, Ultra Beasts are not inherently hostile to non-Ultra Beasts. Rather, Lusamine has caused the Nihilego to grow out of control with her experiments, and they have infected much of their dimension with their venom, causing the other species to grow vicious and attack the world in search of new territory and to protect themselves. After Lusamine's defeat and pruning the Nihilego to safe levels, the Ultra Beasts become friendlier and can be caught like any other Pokémon. Ultra Beasts can be caught with any type of ball, but Beast Balls have a much higher capture rate on them.
Known Ultra Beasts
A total of seven Ultra Beast species appear in Sun & Moon, each of them called by a code name in addition to a real name. Besides their origin, they can all open portals between their dimension and the human one, and none of them have a gender, though whether this is because they are actually agender or simply that humans can't tell is unknown. As later revealed, Cosmog and its evolutions Cosmoem, Solgaleo, and Lunala are also Ultra Beasts that have found a niche in the world of the games, and retain their ability to form portals to their original dimension.
Cosmog evolution line
The Cosmog evolution line is a three stage Legendary Pokémon evolution line featuring the two mascots of Pokémon Sun and Moon, Solgaleo and Lunala - who evolve from Cosmoem depending on the version. The members of the evolutionary line are regarded as Ultra Beasts, though they are not numbered like the others.
UB-01 (Japanese: UB01) is the first Ultra Beast shown. It was revealed on September 6, 2016.
UB-01’s body is composed of a glass-like substance. However, it’s constantly changing shapes, never settling on one.
While evidence of something like a survival instinct can be observed in UB-01, no one knows whether it has a will of its own or any emotions. It’s said that, for some reason, its movements resemble those of a young girl. Its title is Symbiont, referencing its distinctive neurotoxin (which both causes its victims to become more violent and more powerful).
UB-02 (Japanese: UB02) is the second Ultra Beast shown. It was revealed on September 12, 2016 through the September issue of CoroCoro magazine.
UB-02 comes in two different variations, depending on the game version. Pokemon Sun comes with UB-02 Absorption, while Pokemon Moon comes with UB-02 Beauty. According to the scan, both of them would be encountered facing off Tapu Koko in their respective games.
This is the Ultra Beast set to appear in Pokémon Sun.
The extent of its strength is unknown. Its entire body is covered with bulging, powerful muscles. The full force of a punch powered by these muscles would be off the charts! Its distinctively long mouth is said to be harder than diamonds. Could the Ultra Beast also use it to attack?
This is the Ultra Beast set to appear in Pokémon Moon.
Its narrow, graceful legs allow it to accelerate with such explosive speed that people claim it can dodge lightning! It is said that any Pokémon that sees UB-02 Beauty, regardless of its own gender, will become infatuated with it and lose the will to battle. The exact reason for this reaction—whether it's an unidentified pheromone exuded by UB-02 Beauty or a hypnotic effect induced by its appearance—has not been determined. It is also unknown if it affects Genderless Pokémon.
This beast has an astounding appetite, and it will completely devour anything in front of its eyes. It’s said that it devours not only objects, but the ground, rivers, and even the seas!
Despite the abnormal amounts that this beast consumes, it’s said that it doesn’t produce any waste products. It’s possible that it’s completely converting everything it eats into energy to sustain itself, but the true details remain unknown.
