Pokemon Go is teasing the arrival of Ultra Beasts

Nihilego has been confirmed as the first Pokemon Go Ultra Beast.

Pokémon Go’s Alola season is still underway, as creatures from Pokémon Sun and Moon have slowly but surely made their way into the game. Most gamers will know that Ultra Beasts had a pretty big role in the Sun & Moon storyline, but they haven’t hidden a hair in Niantic’s mobile spin-off. However, it looks like that will change, as Pokémon Go has teased the imminent arrival of Ultra Beasts in a new trailer.

Uploaded to the official Pokémon Go Twitter account today (thanks to Eurogamer), a very short trailer briefly took viewers into what looked like an Ultra Wormhole. Inside the wormhole, we get a good look at a horde of Nihilego before we’re pulled out again and shown the back of a mysterious figure in Ultra Recon Squad garb. A date for Nihilego’s unveiling was not provided, but the trailer coincides with Pokemon Go Fest 2022, which starts next month.


Nihilego is currently the only Ultra Beast being teased, though you’d imagine other Beasts like Blacephalon, Buzzwole, Guzzlord, and more won’t be far behind. It’s also possible that Niantic may use Nihilego and more Ultra Beasts as surprise drops during Go Fest 22, similar to how Hoopa dropped as a surprise during Go Fest 21. We won’t have to wait long to find out either, as Go Fest 22 kicks off on the 5th. of June.

However, any potential excitement for Go Fest 22 is currently overshadowed by a rather unpopular change made to the game’s PokeCoin event boxes. In a likely attempt to try to get gamers out to raid in person, Niantic has removed Remote Raid Passes from PokeCoin Event Crates, removing one of the easiest ways to get Remote Raid Passes and replacing them with a rotating set. Of elements. The change hasn’t gone down well with fans, with many claiming the pandemic still makes them too uncomfortable to visit the crowded raid locations.
