New Ultra Beast, Ultra Recon Squad, and Ultra Space Travel Revealed!

TPCi has revealed new Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon features as well as a new Ultra Beast named UB Adhesive!

New Trailer

UB Adhesive

Type: Poison

Category: Poison Pin Pokémon

Height: 2’00”

Weight: 4.0 lbs.

Ability: Beast Boost

This Ultra Beast’s head is filled with venom and it shoots this venom out from the poisonous needle on the top of its head. It is said to be intelligent enough to understand human speech and displays many emotions.

In Pokémon Ultra Sun, players will able to meet UB Burst, while in Pokémon Ultra Moon, it will be UB Assembly:

UB Burst

Type: Fire/Ghost

Category: Fireworks Pokémon

Height: 5’11”

Weight: 28.7 lbs.

Ability: Beast Boost

UB Burst has a head made up of a collection of curious sparks, which it can remove and make explode. It tricks targets into letting their guard down with its funny behavior then, when its opponent is close, it surprises them by blowing up its head without warning.

UB Burst’s go-to move: Mind Blown. With this Fire-type special move, the user sacrifices half of its maximum HP to deal damage. It seems par for the course for UB Burst, which attacks others by blowing up its own head. And despite its comical appearance, this move packs some serious power.


UB Assembly

Type: Rock/Steel

Category: Rampart Pokémon

Height: 18’01”

Weight: 1807.8 lbs.

Ability: Beast Boost

This Ultra Beast is a collection of many life-forms. While it appears to be made up of stones stacked atop one another, each “stone” is in fact a separate life-form. When confronting opponents, the eyes on each of its stones begin to glow bright red.

Ultra Megalopolis

In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, Ultra Wormholes were strange pockets of space that mysteriously appeared throughout the Alola region and were shrouded in mystery. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, these Ultra Wormholes return and players can ride on the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala to travel through them to reach the various worlds that lie beyond. Players can visit many different worlds via these Ultra Wormholes—including Ultra Megalopolis! The world of Ultra Megalopolis is a place that has had its light stolen by Necrozma. Within this world, a mysterious tower-like building shines with brilliant light but whatever waits at the top of this structure is currently unknown.

Ultra Recon Squad

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon players will meet the Ultra Recon Squad, a strange group that have come from a world that lives beyond an Ultra Wormhole. Players will see the story told from different perspective in each version of the game, with Dulse and Zossie playing a central role in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Soliera and Phyco taking that role in Pokémon Ultra Moon. The Ultra Recon Squad bring with them a new Ultra Beast—UB Adhesive.

    I was moderately excited for the game before, but this just makes it look like a completely different game that just so happens to take place in Alola. UB Adhesive is such a cutie! And one of my favorite types, at that. <3

    The whole deal about being able to freely travel through Ultra Space just did it for me. The fact that we get to battle the Ultra Beasts on their home turf, which is (in my opinion) much better than just finding them on a route, kinda randomly in a sub-par post game. Seeing Buzzwole, Xurkitree, and Nihilego all in their different worlds was awesome, and exploring these places is going to be a blast! Then there's Ultra Megalopolis. The very idea of having people in a completely different world is awesome, and the whole situation of Necrozma literally taking all of their light is confusing but intriguing simultaneously.

    I'm really excited for these games. With the new story, tons of added extras and changes, and new Pokémon I'm finding it hard to contain myself!

    1:26 Wow, mind blown! (Sorry, just had to...!) :rolleyes:

    The Ultra Wormhole is almost like Reversed World! This is just getting better and better. Maybe we get even more new Ultra Beasts...?!

  4. TheRealBro.. Lookin' at you!


    Nice, finally some information that makes me excited for these games!

    A shame that Assembly should be as hard to break down as it comes.. But then it gets Rock/Steel typing.. Say goodbye to any walling capabilities for ''the wall''.

    The designs are really awesome though, especially that UB Burst, now that we know it indeed is a Fire Type. In my opinion one of the best Ultra Beasts so far with out of the box design and typing. Really interesting!

    The new Poison type is also a really nice addition with a good design, given the supremacy of fairy types lately. By the looks of it it's going to be fast with a high special attack (understanding human speech etc.)

    Can't wait to hear more!

    This is now the 10th Ultra Beast, which means I can no longer fit them all into a single 9-pocket binder sheet.

    o geodudes

    Actually 14 Ultra Beasts. Cosmog and family are Ultra Beasts according to the games.

    In that case, there would be 15 if you accept the theory that Necrozma has the same origins as Solgaleo and Lunala. The main thing that separates the Cosmog family & Necrozma from the Ultra Beasts is that the numbered Ultra Beasts have not ever been exposed to the human world of Sun & Moon before, and thus they are sensitive to the Fallers (due to their exposure to Ultra Wormholes) and actively try to seek them out / kill them. This is why Looker is unable to locate Necrozma, because Necrozma is such an ancient Ultra Beast that he has become desensitized to the Fallers.

    Edit: 17 if we're now counting the new Necrozma forms, haha

    "It is said to be intelligent enough to understand human speech and displays many emotions."

    So... all other pokemon just pretend to understand human language?

    Potentially but only if officially stated.

    This news is actually making me excited for US/UM. I wasn't expecting Ghost for UB Burst (although I do like its typing), UB Assembly I was expecting Rock, but I can't say its typing hugely excites me.
    I adore that new Poison UB (although personally I think it could have been a decent opportunity for Poison/Psychic but oh well).
    I'm so glad we get to see more of Ultra Space (plus the travelling on Solgaleo/Lunala looks pretty fun) and the Ultra Megalopolis sounds interesting.
    And I don't quite yet get what the Ultra Recon Squad are supposed to be - new evil team? or just a pair (per game) on their own? I'm intrigued to see more of what role they play in the games.

    Many people debate whether UB's are legendary pokemon I find them to be so which means adhesive is the first ever poison type legendary after 7 gens now if we could just get a dark type gym
  14. Gruffling Aspiring Trainer


    Nihilego is poison/rock
  15. mawile_13 Aspiring Trainer


    Ok, I'm done checking for news on this. 3 new Ultrabeasts (and one of them is POISON!?) is enough to make me think there's probably more on the way. I want to go into the rest of the game spoiler-free!
  16. HouchinsDJ Aspiring Trainer


    With every update these games get me more and more hyped.
  17. AuraJackle Aspiring Trainer


    O yea i forgot about that well regardless took them forever

    You pretty much just took the words right out of my mouth. USUM just fixed the only problem I had with Sun/Moon by expanding on the Ultra Space and giving more focus to the Ultra Beasts. The different environments that make up Ultra Space are very intriguing, and I'd like to find out more about how the Ultra Beasts fit in to their own dimension! I'm officially sold on this game!

    I wonder what the whole deal is with the Ultra Recon Squad. Are they new villains? Or are they people that need your help to save them from Necrozma?

    UB Adhesive is super-cute. It looks like a fourth Sinnoh Lake Guardian. I want to squeeze it and hold it and possibly be killed via deadly venom in the process.
  19. Cottonmouth25 Flying-type Enthusiast


    Other Pokémon are able to, but maybe Ultra Beasts can't, being from a different world and all.

    I need UB Adhesive right now it is so adorable
