New Pokémon Sun & Moon Ultra Beasts officially revealed - 14/09/2016
Entry 19:00pm - 14/09/2016. (Don't forget to visit our Facebook page for news updates and more.)
The Japanese Pokémon website today brought news of the two Ultra Beasts listed in CoroCoro, and later in the day saw the official trailer release from the International Youtube account. You can see the trailer above, as well as read the official notes. "UB-01 was recently revealed, and now there are two more: UB-02 Absorption and UB-02 Beauty. Their numbers and purposes are not known, but it does look like there may be additional Ultra Beasts beyond UB-01 and UB-02.
The Ultra Beast known as UB-02 Absorption appears in Pokémon Sun, and 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?
The Ultra Beast with the codename UB-02 Beauty appears in Pokémon Moon. What kind of power does it possess? 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." Stay tuned as more information is scheduled on September 20th, 22:00 JST. Check back for further Sun & Moon information.
Also, the side CoroCoro comic Sun & Moon manga cover was uploaded via the official Twitter account. (See Sun & Moon Manga Cover).
