Niantic reveals global Ultra Beast event for mobile game Pokémon Go

Pokémon Go Ultra Beasts are on the way from their different dimensions to let players around the world start catching these ethereal creatures

Pokemon Go Ultra Beasts event: Buzzwole, a red, insect like Pokemon, with some green trees and blue sky behind. The creature is hard to describe: imagine a cartoon-jock-bodybuilder body shape, except with more insect like coverings, a pair of tiny wings, ahead like an ant and a large pointy thing for a nose. That's roughly it.

Niantic has announced a Pokémon Go Ultra Beasts event, with seven monsters returning to the hit AR mobile game globally on November 27. It all kicks off with an event at Somerset House in London on November 26, offering players a chance to capture all seven Ultra Beasts, as well as some exclusive fan rewards.

The seven Pokémon Go Ultra Beasts are Buzzwole, Celesteela, Guzzlord, Kartana, Nihilego, Pheromosa, and Xurkitree. Unless you can make it to the event in London, all seven Ultra Beasts are spread across different regions during an event on November 27, between 11:00 and 17:00 local time.

Niantic introduced these Ultra Beasts over the last few months, since Nihilego’s introduction at the beginning of June. Due to the limited time given to capture these Pokémon, they’re incredibly rare, making this a precious opportunity to fill out your roster with these creatures. Check out our Pokémon Go raids guide to prepare for the big day.
