Niantic has announced that the Ultra Beast Arrival: Global event takes place on Sunday, November 27th, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time in Pokémon GO.
The reports are in—a surge of Ultra Beasts is approaching!
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.
