Aren't they just Pokemon with the UB name since they have unknown origins?

Mixing Hawaii with aliens was such a weird vibe, but I really dug it. It was the one aspect of SM that I loved.

Loved the Ultra Beasts. They went nuts with the designs I can certainly appreciate that. Pokémon from another dimension was a neat concept that I hope the revisit someday.
Buzzwole is the best.

I dislike them mainly due to how much the Alolan dex was filled with legendaries. On their own I'm rather indifferent to them, though I do love Poipole and Naganadel.

I don't mind the desings but that they are considered legendary pokemon is a huge problem for me.

Some of them like Buzzswole, Guzzlord and Poipol are really dope and great Pokemon.

Some of them like Kartakana and Xircuitry are among my least favorite Pokemon designs ever.

Burn them all to a crisp. Make it so that they are remembered vaguely if at all by Gen 10. Erase them from history GameFreak! We already have fossil pokemon in sw/sh that seems more like failed DNA Digivolving attempt. Its all downhill from here!

/s kinda

They were hit or miss, but the ones that were hits were really good. <3 Buzzwole

As a general concept they're pretty good.

Absolutely some of the best designs in Alola and the second half of Pokemon as a franchise. Buzzwole, Celesteela, and Pheromosa in particular are some of my favorite designs from the franchise ever, I truly hope more UBs will come down the line, even if they dont get crazy stat spreads or insane abilities. I also dont think they look like digimon.

Don’t know why they were left to the postgame for simple find and catch quests. They could’ve been weaved into the main campaign story a lot better than they were.

They’re great. Gen 8 fossils followed a similar ‘wtf is this’ design philosophy (albeit for different lore reasons), and it works.

I like the idea behind them, but not the execution. More misses than hits imo.

I guess this is the best you can get with E rated eldritch horror.

Love their designs, but from a gameplay and plot standpoint their implementation left a lot to be desired. Them all sharing the same ability was a major bummer, and they didn't go quite as wild with their typings as I would've liked to see.

A lot of them were pretty strong and meta defining.

As someone who is also abundantly fond of the current gen’s nightmare fossil Pokémon, you’d better believe I love how terrifying and weird most of the Ultra Beasts look.

They just look like they're from a different game, which might have been the point but I just don't care for them at all.

I’m not a fan of human-looking Pokémon in general. They were hella useful in the Battle Tree though so they have some value.

Some of the designs were interesting but should have been worked into a normal evolutionary tree instead (Buzzswole should have evolved from a skinny dork larva, etc).

Mostly though they detracted from the game. Alola was already light on new Pokemon so making so many of the few there were into single stage post game legendary Pokemon hurt the game a bunch.

Dexit also means these are the first candidates to be not included each generation, so no sense becoming attached.

a cool but messy idea. It was very clear from the get-go they weren't going to ever show up again haha, they were weird even for Pokemon description standards.

Shame the definitive edition of the game removed the only good part of og Sun/Moon in which a human merges with an Ultra Beast, that was a genuinely good idea

i really like the idea that most Ultra Beasts are actually normal pokemon in their home dimensions, including evolution lines that we simply can't access due to lacking things from their homes

for all we know, Buzzwole and Pheramosa have the same pre-evo

They were fine, but I don't really like when the franchise introduces so many new "special" Pokemon compared to new "normal" ones in a generation, which SuMo was clearly the worst offender for.

From my personal preference , some designs are do not have that Mr Ken Sugimori 's touch

they are still cool looking monsters but as long as it was designed by Mr Sugimori and Mr Hitoshi Ariga , i will scream like a fanboy


P.S loving Rookidee + Corvisquire + Corviknight

I did like then for going out of the pokemon design mold.

And they'll be back by dlc pack 4: Scepter dimension.
