Pokémon Sun and Moon will feature lots of brand new Pokémon and new forms for existing Pokémon, but it’s also introducing a new kind of monster. A trailer released last month revealed the existence of mysterious and mighty beings known as Ultra Beasts. Little is known about these creatures, but they appear to resemble characters from the game, and they have some connection to The Aether Foundation.
Many have been wondering if Ultra Beasts are actually Pokémon or something completely separate. Perhaps more importantly, players have also been asking if you’ll be able to capture them. While The Pokémon Company hasn’t commented on the first question (they have to keep some things a mystery), the second question was answered at a recent Nintendo press event.
A Nintendo representative has confirmed to Polygon that you will be able to catch Ultra Beasts in Pokémon Sun and Moon. The representative also confirmed that Ultra Beasts will play a role in the plot, but no specific details were shared. Are you looking forward to encountering Ultra Beasts in the Alola region?
