The mysterious life-forms known as Ultra Beasts have appeared in greater numbers than ever over the past few months—you may have even encountered them yourselves.

But if you haven’t caught a glimpse yet, keep an eye out, because even more Ultra Beasts will be making their way here during Ultra Beast Arrival: Global!

What do these mysterious creatures want? Where do they come from? What does their arrival mean? Could they be a danger to us? We don’t know for sure. We can only hope Pokémon Trainers around the world are ready for this new challenge.
