The Day Pokémon GO Fans Have Waited For Is Finally Here: The Arrival of Generation 7 Ultra


One of Generation Seven’s most weird and jellyfish-like Ultra Beasts appears in a recent Pokémon GO trailer, and it’s called Nihilego. This set of alien Pokémon from another dimension called Ultra Space was first revealed to gamers in 2016’s Pokémon Sun & Moon game. As a result of rifts termed Ultra Wormholes, they have been linked to the fabled three of Solgaleo, Lunala & Necrozma, commonly dubbed as “the Light trio.” The Ultra Beasts have a wide range of abilities that might have a negative impact on the ecosystem surrounding them.

As a Rock/Poison-type Pokémon with tendrils that look like parts of the human body, Nihilego stands out as among the weirdest and unnerving Ultra Beasts to appear in Pokémon Sun and Moon. Nihilego is often confused for a youthful girl. While the creature’s look is unnerving enough, Nihilego can also combine with some other Pokémon or maybe even a person by attaching itself to the perpetrator’s skull and releasing a neurotoxin that causes a surge in excitement and the lack of restriction in its host. In addition to its appearances in the Pokémon Sun & Moon videogames, Nihilego has appeared in many chapters of the lengthy Pokémon animated series and also as a Spirit throughout Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.


According to the latest reports, Nihilego, as well as the remainder of Generation Seven’s Ultra Beasts, shall be making their way to Pokémon GO. The main Pokémon GO Twitter page uploaded a short video preview for Nihilego’s upcoming appearance in the videogame, depicting the jellyfish-like organism drifting in a vacuum while eerie music begins. Trainers appear in the Ultra Recon Squad outfit in the clip, but it’s unclear whether this would be an additional combat outfit in Pokémon GO. The Ultra Recon Squad appears in Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon, but it’s not obvious whether it will appear in Pokémon GO.
