Due to be released November 2016, Pokémon Sun and Moon continues to change the way we think about the Pokémon universe. A new type of creature threatens the Alola Region. Beings which are not Pokémon, but something else entirely. They are beings with awesome powers which threaten Pokémon and humans alike.
What is the story behind these powerful creatures? Here is what we know so far:
There have been sightings of mysterious beasts appearing in the island region of Alola. Not much is known about them, but we know they are not like any Pokémon ever seen. They also allegedly cannot be captured using Poke balls. The locals have started calling these non-Pokémon creatures Ultra Beasts.
The Aether Foundation, which is located on a man-made island just off Alola, have been conducting research on these new beings. As of the writing of this article, three different varieties of Ultra Beasts have been revealed in trailers, but so far their purpose and motivations are unknown.
Each Ultra Beast revealed thus far has been given a code name by the Aether Foundation. The first Ultra Beast to be revealed in the trailers is UB-01.
UB-01 vaguely resembles a cross between a jellyfish and young woman. According to the Pokémon website, UB-01 appears to be made of a glass-like substance and its movements are similar to that of a human girl.
The second documented Ultra Beast in Alola actually has two forms, one for each version of the game. In Pokémon Sun, UB-02 Absorption is an armored insect-like creature. Its body is built to gain and sustain its burly form. It specializes in devastating physical attacks and punches which will send its foes flying.
The UB-02 Beauty is the form of Ultra Beast which will be exclusive to the Pokémon Moon version of the game. It has a long willowy body which can move with explosive speed. It is said that this Ultra Beast can even dodge lightening. Beauty also seems to have a hypnotic effect on its opponents. Foes fighting UB-02 will find themselves infatuated with the creature, regardless of their gender. It is yet unknown whether or not this is due to psychic abilities.
What are your theories on the appearance of the Ultra Beasts? How will they affect the plot of the game? It will only be a couple of months until we find out.
