The mysterious Ultra Beasts in Pokemon Sun and Moon can be captured, and we’re here to provide all the details you need to get started tackling every UB optional quest. The UBs are creatures from another dimension, and you’ll have to come prepared to tackle these Level 55+ threats.

Like Totem Pokemon, Ultra Beasts generate a powerful aura that makes them more powerful in combat. They’re basically Legendary Pokemon without the ‘Legendary’ tag, and each is weirder than the last. Here’s how to get all five from your version of Pokemon Sun or Moon.

There are seven Ultra Beasts in total, but two are version exclusives. Their quests are identical in both versions, but you’ll hunt for a different type of Ultra Beast in each version of the game. You can still get them all by trading.


How to Get Every Ultra-Beast | Locations Guide

To begin capturing Ultra Beasts, you’ll first have to complete the Elite 4 and become Alola Champion. Once you’ve finished the main game and entered the post-game content, you can begin accepting Ultra Beast missions from a special NPC.

Ultra Beasts can only be captured with special Beast Pokeballs, given by the Looker — a quest-giver that changes locations and sends you to nab each Ultra-Beast in order. The Looker gives you (10) Beast Balls after defeating his partner Anabel in a duel, then sends you to collect the next numbered Ultra Beast.

Here’s where you’ll need to go to begin each of the Ultra Beast quests.
