The Pokémon anime will be moving onto Ultra Sun and Moon-themed episodes soon


Ultra Beast Pokémon will invade the Pokémon anime in the next few weeks.

This is the first time that Pokémon from Ultra Sun and Moon will appear in the anime with Poipole, Blacephalon, and Stakataka all set to make their debut, though it’s not clear when exactly they’ll appear.

Images from CoroCoro, a monthly Japanese manga magazine that has revealed exclusive information on up-and-coming Pokémon games for years, appeared on Serebii a few days ago.

The promotional image showed that the next part of the anime will have the main cast acting as Ultra Guardians, protecting Alola from the Ultra Beast Pokémon entering the world through Ultra Wormholes.

The main character, Ash, might be getting an Ultra Beast Pokémon of his own with Poipole prominent in all of the advertising material. Ash’s Litten also looks like it will be evolving to Torracat sometime in the future.

The Ultra Sun and Moon storyline will kick off in a few weeks time with episode 1004. The anime episode will be released in Japan first before an english dub is released in a few months time.
