Acerola first appears in Malie City 's library, which her father once owned, where she helps the player and Lillie find a book about Alolan Legendary Pokémon . Afterwards, she directs the player to their next trial on top of Mount Hokulani .
In her trial, Acerola asks the player to investigate the abandoned site, using their Poké Finder to take photos of the Ghost-type Pokémon making mischief there. At the end, they must defeat a powerful Totem Pokémon , a Mimikyu .
She later appears as a member of the Alola Elite Four , having taken on the position after kahuna Nanu turned it down.

In the anime
Acerola debuted in Why Not Give Me a Z-Ring Sometime? . She is close friends with Ula'ula Island residents Piko and Nene , who refer to her as "Big Sis". She read them a story regarding a mischievous spirit known as the Greedy Rapooh and later went for a walk with them. During the walk, they came across Team Rocket , who had accidentally released Greedy Rapooh, which was actually a Gengar , from the shrine that it had been sealed in.
Acerola found herself kidnapped by Greedy Rapooh, who began to steal various items despite her requests for it to stop. Her Shiny Mimikyu , nicknamed Mimikins, eventually rescued her from Greedy Rapooh, which resulted in them falling to the ground. Greedy Rapooh started begging Acerola to take it with her, offering her all the items in its possession, but she refused, believing her work at the library to be more important and valuable. Throwing a tantrum, Gengar tried to forcibly take Acerola with it, but she was saved by Team Rocket , who had followed Gengar in an attempt to get back the Darkinium Z it had stolen from them. Having seen Team Rocket saving Acerola, Nanu chose to give them a Z-Power Ring , allowing them to defeat Gengar. Later, a sympathetic Acerola told Gengar that it could come to visit her at the library from time to time, filling it with happiness. After Nanu had let Team Rocket keep the Z-Power Ring, Mimikins gave Jessie a Mimikium Z as a gift.
In Tough Guy Trials! , Acerola met Ash , who had traveled to Ula'ula Island so he could challenge Nanu to a grand trial. After realizing that Ash was tricked into taking care of Nanu's Alolan Meowth while he left to be lazy somewhere else, Acerola took Ash to her library, where she read a story about "the Blinding One ". When Nanu arrived to find his missing kendama , which Acerola had stolen to lure him to her, he was forced by Acerola to accept Ash's challenge to battle him. She later refereed the battle between Ash and his Lycanroc against Nanu and his Krookodile , which Ash lost. When Nanu told Ash he wasn't ready to face him and should just return to Melemele Island , Ash refused and decided to stay on Ula'ula and train for a rematch. Later, at Ash's request, Acerola suggested they go and see Tapu Bulu so it could help Ash.
In Some Kind of Laziness! , Acerola took Ash through Haina Desert to meet with Tapu Bulu at the Ruins of Abundance . There, she watched Ash train with Tapu Bulu to get stronger for his rematch with Nanu. In A Battle Hand-Off! , Acerola accompanied Ash to the Thrifty Megamart so that Ash could participate in his next trial. After arriving, Acerola refereed the battle between Ash and Pikachu against Jessie's Mimikyu . In Guiding an Awakening! , Acerola refereed the grand trial between Ash and Nanu. After Ash won, she bade him farewell as he headed back to Melemele Island .
Acerola appeared in a flashback in Filling the Light with Darkness! .
In Full Moon and Many Arms! , Acerola watched the sunrise alongside Nanu, with Tapu Bulu watching from nearby.
In Securing the Future! , Acerola joined the rest of Alola in showering Necrozma with light so it could return to its true form .
In A Haunted House for Everyone! , Acerola visited the Pokémon School on Melemele Island , reuniting with Ash and meeting his classmates for the first time. She helped them build a haunted house for Lana 's twin sisters Harper and Sarah . Mimikins's presence ended up attracting several Ghost-type Pokémon, including a Mismagius who put everyone to sleep and transported them into a world of nightmarish illusions.
In Battle Royal 151! , Acerola greeted Ash and his classmates when they arrived at the Manalo Stadium . She was revealed to be among the 151 Trainers taking part in the Battle Royal preliminary round of the Manalo Conference . Acerola competed with her Shuppet and was ultimately among the 16 Trainers remaining when the round ended. The match-ups for the next round revealed that she would be battling Kiawe .
In The Battlefield of Truth and Love! , Acerola went up against Kiawe, using Greedy Rapooh against Kiawe's Marowak . She ended up losing when Marowak retrieved its bone from Greedy Rapooh and knocked it out. In The Final Four! and Getting Down to The Ire! , she watched the battle between Kiawe and Gladion in the stands; and in The Wisdom Not to Run! , she watched the battle between Ash and Guzma .
In Enter the Champion! , Acerola attended the award ceremony for the Manalo Conference winner, only for it to be interrupted when a Guzzlord arrived at the stadium through an Ultra Wormhole .
Acerola reappeared in a flashback in From Z to Shining Z! .
Acerola is used to the supernatural and Ghost-type Pokémon overall, largely because of Mimikins ' presence. This was demonstrated by her composure during Mismagius 's illusions in A Haunted House for Everyone! , which she noted was normal for her.
Acerola often visits Nanu , who is notoriously lazy, to ensure he is keeping up with his island kahuna duties. She was the one who convinced Nanu to accept Ash's challenges in Tough Guy Trials! and their later rematch in Guiding an Awakening! .
This listing is of Acerola's known Pokémon in the anime :
Achievements, pokémon league.
Acerola has competed in the following Pokémon League Conferences :
- Manalo Conference - Top 16 ( The Battlefield of Truth and Love! )
Acerola briefly appeared in GOTCHA! .
In the manga
Acerola was first mentioned in Flash and Cosmog's Secret by Mallow , who considered asking Acerola and Ilima to join her, Kiawe , and Lana in raiding Team Skull 's base . Acerola properly debuted in Shipwreck and "Oh, What Sharp Teeth You Have, Bruxish!" , where she found an unconscious Sun and Lillie on a beach and took them to the Aether House to recuperate.
In A Photoshoot and the Abandoned Thrifty Megamart , Acerola introduced herself to Sun and Lillie and took them to the abandoned Thrifty Megamart . She gave Sun a trial and tasked him with photographing the Totem Pokémon that lived inside the building. While Sun did the trial, Acerola left to go meet with Mallow's group. Later, she received a photo of the Totem Mimikyu from Sun, who had successfully completed the trial.
In A Raid and Po Town , Acerola, Kiawe, Mallow, Lana, Ilima, and Hau arrived at Po Town. Their presence alerted Team Skull's boss, Guzma , who demanded to know why his base was being invaded. When the Captains revealed they only wanted to talk, Guzma agreed on the condition they made it to him first and then summoned a Pheromosa , Celesteela , and Guzzlord . He had them attack the Captains and Hau. Despite their best efforts, Acerola and the others were completely outmatched by the rampaging Ultra Beasts .
In Confusion and Monsters from Another World , Sun arrived at Po Town, only to get caught up in the commotion. Annoyed the Captains were still fighting, Guzma revealed a Cosmog and had it open more wormholes. Gladion appeared, demanding to know where Guzma got the Cosmog and Ultra Beasts from. Revealing his true aim is to destroy Ultra Beasts, Gladion battled the beasts Guzma summoned with his Type: Null . To everyone's shock, Gladion also revealed the Aether Foundation 's president, Lusamine , was the one who gave Guzma Cosmog as part of her plan to create a paradise filled with nothing but Ultra Beasts and herself. Eventually, the beasts broke out of Po Town's barrier, allowing them to wreak havoc on all of Ula'ula Island. Acerola and the other Captains headed off to various locations to evacuate any innocent civilians caught in the beasts' attacks.
In The Truth and Island Kahuna Hapu , Acerola, Sophocles , Molayne , Professor Kukui , and Gladion fought off a Celesteela and Guzzlord at Route 10 to prevent them from reaching Hokulani Observatory . Gladion easily defeated Celesteela and later defeated Guzzlord to prevent it from hurting Lillie .
In Adventure in the Dark Dimension , the Trial Captains and island kahunas were revealed to have spent six months on Exeggutor Island training to prepare for another clash with the Ultra Beasts. After their training was finished, Acerola and the other Captains went to Hokulani Observatory under Molayne's orders. Once they gathered together, Acerola and the others traveled to Mount Lanakila , where a wormhole had opened up earlier. Shortly after they arrived, their ship was attacked by a group of Aether Foundation Employees and their Ultra Beasts. During the battle, Acerola was assisted by Tapu Lele , who transported her to Akala Island in order to battle with some Kartana at Hano Grand Resort .

Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon Walkthrough | Part 8: Captain Acerola’s Trial
Go ghost hunting in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in Captain Acerola's Trial, sending your trainer into the creepy abandoned Megamart.
Defeat the spooky Totem Mimikyu and complete some urban exploration in the abandoned Thrifty Megamart in Acerola’s Trial in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon . Acerola sends you into the dilapidated supermarket trial that’s all about ghost hunting — with your Poke Finder, you’ll need to locate three ghosts and snap some shots.
Mimikyu is one of the tougher Totem Pokémon bosses, so you’ll want to prepare yourself. Steel Type Pokémon are some of the safest to use in the first — at least, Pokémon with Steel Type moves. Decidueye gets a special, very easy way to end Mimikyu, but the rest of the starters won’t be so lucky.

Walkthrough | Part 8: Captain Acerola’s Trial
You’re really blasting through the trials now. The next trial leads players to the spooky abandoned Thrifty Megamart, where the Ghost Type trainer Acerola sends you in search of the spooky Mimikyu.
From the top of Mount Hokulani, you’ve got two options — ride the bus back down, or walk down the path. The longer route is my personal favorite option. There are lots of Pokémon to catch (Elgyem), and you can grab some useful items, like TM72 Volt Switch .
Go through Route 10 and return to Malie City , then re-enter Malie Garden . When you arrive, you’ll encounter the Team Skull Boss Guzma, and he wants to test your skills.
- Team : Lvl. 34 Golisopod, Lvl. 34 Masquerain
Guzma enters the fight with a pair of powerful Pokémon. Golisopod uses powerful physical moves, and often unleashes Sucker Punch, hitting first and dealing more damage if you’re about to attack. Golisopod is weak to Electric, Flying — anything that Bug Types are weak to. Same goes to Masquerain, but both Pokémon are powerful enough to defeat similarly-leveled Pokémon in a single hit. Bring an ice /electric / rock type to defend against the annoying Air Slash attack.
For defeating Guzma, you’ll get a Z Crystal made specifically for the third stage of your starter Pokémon. After that, Lillie arrives with Acerola, another Trial Captain. She’ll tell you where to go — travel up Route 11 and move through Tapu Village . Route 11 is on the road south of Malie City.
On Route 11, Rotom will unlock an upgrade so you’ll earn more money from trainer battles. Don’t miss the TM74 Gyro Ball in the center of the path. For defeating the Bewear trainer, you’ll also get a TM66 Payback .
Route 11 leads to Route 12, a rocky plateau that you can only cross with the help of some Pokémon. Hapu will give you the Mudsdale Ride Pager, allowing you to cross the harsh terrain. It’s a pretty long route, and you’ll have to navigate Route 13 too — take your time, retreat to a PokeCenter to refresh, and catch lots of Pokémon. Route 13 is really short and safe, so reaching Tapu Village should be easy.
Before you can start the trial, visit Aether House, northwest from the old ruins PokeCenter. You’ll meet lots of strange characters along the way — the Ultra Recon Squad, Gladion — but you’ll only have to fight wild Pokémon and wandering trainers. Two children will attack in Aether House, but you shouldn’t have any problem taking care of them.
Talk to Acerola in Aether House, and on your way out you’ll encounter a Team Skull Grunt menacing Lillie and Cosmog. After a quick battle, Acerola will lead you to the trial site — it’s on the road just south of the Tapu Village PokeCenter.
Captain Acerola’s Trial
Use the dark, black sand beach path south of Tapu Village to reach the old abandoned supermarket. Route 14 is pretty short, with only a few weak trainers to slow you down.
- NOTE : Use Lapras to reach the manmade island west of the Route 15 shore. You’ll find a small sidequest with a woman being menaced by wild Frillish. She’ll give you a Destiny Knot for defeating the Frillish. On the island platform, there’s also a TM30 Shadow Ball.
Enter the Thrifty Megamart to begin the trial. To make the Totem Pokémon appear, you’ll need to explore the abandoned supermarket and take pictures of Ghost Type Pokémon. The area is full of Ghost Types, so you better go in prepared.
Ghost Pokémon are weak to Steel and other Ghost Types. Ghost Pokémon are also immune to many Normal or Fighting Type physical attacks. To complete the trial, you’ll need to take pictures of Ghost Type Pokémon — after taking a picture, the Ghost Type will attack, so be prepared for a few fights!
- Poke Finder #1 : Examine the conveyor that’s moving on its own at the checkout counter. The ghost is above the conveyor.
- Poke Finder #2 : Examine the rattling shopping cart in the front-left corner of the store. The Haunter is floating above the cart.
- Poke Finder #3 : Examine the floating Pokémon dolls in the back-right corner of the store. A Gengar walks around the far-right or far-left corners of the frame.
After taking all three pictures and completing the Pokémon battles, follow the phantom Pikachu into the stock room in the center-back of the store. A strange image of Acerola will appear — don’t listen to her ! Stay and complete the trial.
Final Poke Finder : In the spooky stock room, turn all the way around to see the Mimikyu. It’s right behind you!
- Allies : Lvl. 32 Banette, Lvl. 33 Jellicent
Decidueye’s unique Z-Crystal attack, Sinister Arrow Raid , is incredibly powerful in this fight, but don’t use it until you’ve busted Totem Mimikyu’s disguise! Banette will constantly use Feint Attack or Will-o’-Wisp to cause burn, while Mimikyu uses a powerful attack called Playing Rough.
Save your best Pokémon for last — I recommend defeating the allies first with your less-than-stellar first picks. When they’re defeated, swap to more powerful Pokémon. Unless you’re high level, this fight can get pretty bad. You’ll want to end it quick.
For winning, you’ll earn Ghostium-Z — you’ll also be able to catch Pokémon in the trial site! Not bad if you’re looking for some cool ghostly Pokémon to join your roster. Acerola will give you 10 Dusk Balls — they help catch Pokémon at night.
Next up, it’s time to complete the Grand Trial! But first, take a trip back to Aether House.

These Pokémon are the strongest of all Ghost-type Pokémon to be used casually or competitively based on aggregate scores of their stats.
With Pokémon Scarlet and Violet , the Ninth Generation (Gen9) of Pokémon games being given a release date of late 2022, speculation about what new Pokémon will be introduced, as well as what previous Pokémon will make a reappearance, has been a hot topic on the internet.
Whether planning a team for the next game installment, a team for a re-play, or handpicking Pokémon for high stakes tournaments, these Ghost-type Pokémon should be taken into consideration when planning the ultimate team. These Pokémon are ranked based on the aggregate scores of their various base parameters.
Dusknoir - Score: 525
Dusknoir's Pokémon line was originally introduced in the Generation 3 games Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald . However, Dusknoir wasn't introduced until Generation 4 games Pokémon Diamond, and Pearl . It is a mono Ghost-type Pokémon and is obtained by trading Dusclops with a Reaper Cloth.

Dusknoir is weak against Ghost and Dark-type attacks however its Defense (Def.) and Special Defense (Sp.Def.) stats. are exceptionally high and offset its relatively low Health Point (HP) stats. It's Physical attack (Atk.) based, however, with its low speed using Trick Room that makes slow Pokémon attack first, as an advisable strategy.
Typhlosion (Hisuian Form) - Score: 534
Typhlosion was originally introduced as a starter Pokémon in Generation 2 games Pokémon Gold and Silver . Typhlosion recently got a new final evolution in Pokémon Legends: Arceus where its regional Hisuian Form added the Ghost-typing making Typhlosion a Ghost-Fire-type Pokémon.

While Typhlosion's new typing adds weaknesses Dark and Ghost to it originally only having weaknesses to Water, Rock, and Ground-type moves, its wider move-set somewhat balances it out. Typhlosion is slightly above average across the board with a focus on Speed and Special Attack (Sp. Atk.) letting it hit hard and fairly quickly in battle. It's a relatively tactics-easy Pokémon to use for beginners and veterans alike.
Blacephalon - Score: 570
Blacephalon was introduced as a special type of Pokémon known as Ultra Beasts in the Generation 7 games Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon which are the enhanced rereleases of Pokémon Sun and Moon . So far it is only available in those games as well as a potential spawn in Pokémon Sword and Shield's Pokémon dens.
Blacephalon's low HP stat along with its average Sp. Def stat makes it very susceptible to getting defeated very quickly, especially as its many type-weaknesses have moves able to do massive damage. However, its high Atk. and exceptionally high Sp.Atk stats, coupled with its Speed, make it a dangerous opponent granted it lands first. Using either a Quick Claw to go first or items designed to boost attacks could easily allow Blacephalon to wipe Pokémon quickly.
Gengar - Score: 500-600
Gengar was introduced in the first games Pokémon Blue, and Red as the final evolution of the only Ghost evolution chain available at the time. This extended also to the Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal games, who aside from Misdreavus, was one of few Ghost Pokémon and still the most viable option.
While Gengar isn't the absolute strongest option, with the addition of its Mega Form introduced in Pokémon X and Y it becomes an exceptional Ghost-type on par with many legendaries. Gengar is an average-strength Pokémon except for its Sp. Atk and Speed which makes it an incredibly fast and hard-hitting Pokémon. With its simple attack-first strategy and the potential for Mega Forms to be re-introduced in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet , Gengar will remain an exceptionally viable partner.
Hoopa Confined - Score: 600
Hoopa is an extremely rare Psychic-Ghost Type Pokémon and was one of the first of its kind only preceded by Lunala the main legendary of Sun and Moon . As Hoopa is an event legendary Pokémon it cannot be acquired through normal means, but recently it was catchable through special quests in Pokémon GO .

While its additional Psychic-typing doubles its weaknesses to Dark and Ghost moves, Hoopa has above average stats except for its Def., and significantly higher Sp. Atk and Sp. Def stats. With its wide array of potential moves Hoopa has great potential to decimate foes by utilizing trick room to make it move first, but mastering Hoopa is a challenge.
Dragapult - Score: 600
Dragapult is a Dragon-Ghost type Pokémon introduced in Generation 8 whose typing is only shared by the Legendary Pokémon Giratina. While it is attained in the latter half of the game for Pokémon Sword and Shield , its irregular typing makes it a difficult Pokémon to counter.
While Dragapult adds the weaknesses to Fairy, Ice, and Dragon-type moves, it receives resistances to Fire, Water, Electric, Grass, Poison, and Bug while being completely immune to Fighting and Normal-Types. It also boasts high Atk. and Speed stats with above-average health making it an all-around strong Pokémon that can take a beating and give one back.
Marshadow - Score: 600
Marshadow, an event legendary introduced in Generation 7, is currently the only Pokémon introduced to have the Fighting-Ghost dual typing making it an exceptionally unique Pokémon. It also played a huge part in its introductory movie Pokémon: I Choose You, which was a reboot of the first Pokémon movie.
As a Fighting-type, Marshadow receives the additional weaknesses to Flying, Psychic, and Fairy. Marshadow also loses its weakness to Dark as well as receiving resistance to Poison and Rock and almost negating Bug-Type moves. Similar to many Fighting-types, Marshadow learns the moves Fire, Ice, and Lightning Punch which gives it advantages over most other Pokémon typings. It's moveset along with its high Atk. and Speed makes it a versatile and dangerous opponent if it can be attained.
Lunala - Score: 680
Lunala is the legendary counterpart to Solgaleo and both are the main box legendaries of the generation 7 games Pokémon Sun & Moon . Similar to the Generation 5 games Pokémon Black and White and their sequels, the updated versions of Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Lunala can fuse with another legendary, specifically Necrozma, to make an even stronger Pokémon known as Dawn Wings Necrozma.
As a Psychic-Ghost type Lunala shares its various weaknesses, however, as a Pokémon Necrozma has exceptionally high stats for all categories except for its Def. and Speed stats which are still far above the average. Lunala is an all-around strong Pokémon that doesn't require any specific strategy to properly utilize as it is an exceptional Pokémon however it is used.
Shadow Rider Calyrex - Score: 680
Calyrex is the main legendary that was introduced as a part of the Pokémon Sword & Shield Expansion The Crown Tundra alongside its two potential counterparts Spectrier and Glastrier. If the player chose to catch Spectrier, a special item could be used to "fuse" the two together, creating Shadow Rider Calyrex and giving Calyrex new exclusive moves and large stat boosts.

While Calyrex's Atk. and Def. stats are merely above average, its Sp. Atk. and Speed stats are some of the highest of any Pokémon ever. This makes it almost certain to strike first, and when paired with its many heavy-hitting special attacks Calyrex is a difficult Pokémon to defeat even when exploiting its Psychic-Ghost typing weaknesses.
Giratina - Score: 680
Originally introduced as a catchable Pokémon in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl , Giratina eventually got its own main title installment in Pokémon Platinum which acted as an enhanced version of Diamond and Pearl with extra content. As an added bonus, Giratina was also given an alternate form with altered stats for significantly different gameplay.
When in its "Altered Forme" Giratina is a Defensive based Pokémon boasting exceptional Def. and Sp. Def. stats with high Atk. and Sp. Atk stats while its "Origin Forme" is an Offensive-based Pokémon boasting exceptional Atk. and Sp. Atk. with high Def and Sp. Def. Regardless of the player's playstyle, Giratina is an exceptional Pokémon, sports one of the highest HP stats in the game, and has frustrated many trainers who have gone against Giratina.

Top 10 Best Ghost Pokemon in Sun & Moon
Trevenant is a decent enough Ghost/Grass Pokemon that can prove to be quite the nuisance to other trainers in Sun and Moon. With its Harvest ability, Trevenant can eat multiple berries in battle, giving it some sustainability.
Marowak is a hard hitter that you can rely on for dealing damage to your opponents. With access to Fire, Ghost, and Ground moves, it has excellent coverage. However, its low Defense and Speed stats do hold it back.
Sableye isn’t a terribly powerful Pokemon on its own. However, if you get its Mega Stone in Sun and Moon, Sableye can become a real nuisance with hassling moves like Fake Out and Will-O-Wisp.
Dhelmise might be a little on the slower side, but its ability to trap opponents with Anchor Shot and deal damage with Steelworker makes it a serious opponent to contend with.
With access to powerful moves like Spikes and Destiny Bond, Froslass is a pretty versatile Pokemon that can be built and played in a few different ways.
Decidueye doesn’t hit quite as hard as Dhelmise, but it is a lot faster. Not to mention, Decidueye also gains access to a very diverse move pool, making it a safe bet for many type matchups.
Mismagius doesn’t have a whole lot of HP, but you can easily build it as a glass cannon Pokemon in Sun and Moon, thanks to its high Speed and Special Attack.
If you’re looking for a good wall in your party, Palossand boasts a high Defense stat that goes really well with its Water Compaction ability. It’s not too shabby when it comes to offense either.
With the Disguise ability, Mimikyu can absorb one direct hit in battle, leaving it free to buff up with a move like Swords Dance. Equip it with a Focus Sash, and you can potentially do a sweep with its powered up Ghost and Fairy moves.
Even after losing the Levitate ability, Gengar is still an extremely solid choice if you’re looking for a Ghost-type to round out your party. Its Speed and Special Attack more than make up for the loss of Levitate, and its move pool is still as diverse as ever. This one’s a no-brainer.

Pokemon Fan Designs 9 New Ultra Beasts
Posted: January 13, 2024 | Last updated: January 14, 2024
- A Pokemon fan and artist designed pre-evolutions for the Ultra Beasts, unique Pokemon introduced in Pokemon Sun and Moon.
- Ultra Beasts are different from traditional Pokemon in that they usually do not evolve, with one exception.
- The designs created by the fan were well-received by the Pokemon community, earning thousands of upvotes on Reddit.
A Pokemon fan and artist has designed pre-evolutions for the franchise's Ultra Beasts. Ultra Beasts are a unique kind of Pokemon that were first introduced in Pokemon Sun and Moon . Seven Ultra Beasts appeared in Pokemon Sun and Moon , while an additional four were added as part of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon .
Ultra Beasts differ from traditional Pokemon in many ways. For example, most Ultra Beasts don't evolve, with the exception of one. Poiple, a Poison-type Ultra Beast introduced in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon , can evolve into Poison/Dragon-type Naganadel when it levels up while knowing the move Dragon Pulse. There are no official evolutions or pre-evolutions for any of the other Ultra Beasts, and so one Pokemon fan decided to take matters into their own hands.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Change Ultra Beast Classification
Reddit user and artist WhaleMan295 decided to create pre-evolutions for all the other Ultra Beasts that exist in the Pokemon games , taking inspiration from Poiple and Naganadel. WhaleMan295's designs include Egolyp, Skitleech, Infestro, Lifewyre, Celeshootle, Folmissil, Gluteenee, Walstart, and Cejuggalon, who evolve into Nihilego, Buzzwole, Pheromosa, Celesteela, Kartana, Guzzlord, Stakataka, and Blacephalon, respectively. WhaleMan295's designs were met with enthusiasm from the Pokemon community, with the post earning 4.6 thousand upvotes at the time of this writing.
While Ultra Beasts were a big deal in the Pokemon Sun and Moon games, they haven't been nearly as much of a factor since. Pokemon Sword and Shield had its own gimmicks to focus on, and the same goes for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet , which introduced Paradox Pokemon . It's possible future Pokemon games will put the spotlight back on Ultra Beasts, potentially introducing brand-new ones, but that remains to be seen.
As it stands, the next Pokemon games have not actually been announced. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet just received their Epilogue update , though, so it's likely Game Freak, Nintendo, and The Pokemon Company are prepping for the franchise's future. Presumably, the Generation 10 Pokemon games are in development and will be releasing on the next Nintendo console, though it's also possible that the new Pokemon games will release on the Nintendo Switch instead.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet were criticized for their performance , which was partly blamed on the Switch's outdated hardware. The next Nintendo console will presumably be a great deal more powerful, and so should theoretically result in more technically-impressive Pokemon games, but that remains to be seen. Pokemon Day is coming on February 27, so perhaps franchise fans will learn more soon.
