Niantic has announced that on November 26th, a special in-person Ultra Beast event will be hosted at Somerset House (River Terrace) in London. It will include a visual Ultra Beast experience, photo ops for attendees and plenty of giveaways. The event starts at 5 pm, and the Ultra Beasts will emerge between 6 pm and 7:30 pm.
But, for hardcore fans of the game, the most exciting part of the event is that it will give players a chance to catch all seven Ultra Beasts. On top of that, they can expect to find special Pokemon encounters in the wild and snag a commemorative in-game badge.
Then, on November 27th, between 11 am and 5 pm local time, players across the world can participate in the Ultra Beast Arrival: Global event. During that time, Ultra Beasts will appear in five-star Raids, with different Pokemon appearing depending on the location. Check out the list below for all the details:
- Americas: Nihilego, Buzzwole, Guzzlord
- Asia-Pacific: Nihilego, Xurkitree, Guzzlord
- Europe: Nihilego, Pheromosa, Guzzlord
- Northern hemisphere: Kartana
- Southern hemisphere: Celesteela
Players can also complete a Timed Research, which will focus on Raid Battles to encounter Nihilego, Buzzwole, Pheromosa, Xurkitree, and Guzzlord. There are also several bonuses available through the event:
- x1.25 XP from Raid Battles
- Increased chance of getting XL Candy from in-person Raid Battles
- Five free Raid Passes are available by spinning Gyms during the event and up to two hours afterwards
- Machoke, Scyther, Magmar, Gulpin, Absol, Minccino, Frillish (female), and Dedenne will appear around Gyms after defeating an Ultra Beast Raid.
- Of those Pokemon Scyther, Magmar, Absol, and Minccino have a chance of being Shiny
