Niantic has announced its latest local and global event, Pokémon GO Ultra Beast Arrival, featuring multiple Ultra Beasts debuting worldwide. Essentially, this latest event is all about Ultra Beasts returning to Pokémon GO, but the best part is that Trainers in all countries can catch and collect them. In addition, the developer has released various global event-exclusive Timed Research tasks and rewards to compete during the Pokémon GO Ultra Beast Arrival event festivities.

Update on 27 November: We added the Timed Research tasks and rewards for the global event.

The Pokémon GO Ultra Beasts Arrival event will start locally in Los Angeles, United States, and London, United Kingdom, on 26th November and then globally on 27th November 2022. The event will only last on the day it begins, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm local time. During this time, Trainers worldwide can participate in the Timed Research challenges.

These global Timed Research Tasks are focused on Pokémon GO Raids and will be available throughout the event. That said, Trainers can collect Ultra Beasts through the event's Timed Research Challenges by completing the tasks to encounter the Pokémon.

Trainers can catch Nihilego, Buzzwole, Pheromosa, Xurkitree, Guzzlord, Celesteela, and Kartana through the Timed Research Challenges during Pokémon GO Ultra Beast Arrival.

Ultra Beasts Arrival: Global Timed Research Tasks (1/1):

  • Win 1 Raid - Nihilego encounter 
  • Win 2 Raids - Xurkitree encounter 
  • Win 3 Raids - Pheromosa encounter 
  • Win 4 Raids - Buzzwole encounter 
  • Win 5 Raids - Guzzlord encounter 
  • Win 6 Raids  - Kartana encounter

Ultra Beasts Arrival: Global Timed Research Rewards

  • 570 XP
  • 570 Stardust

In addition, Trainers can reap even more rewards during the event. Those participating will receive 1.25 more XP for winning Raid Battles against Ultra Beasts in Pokémon GO. Subsequently, Trainers can receive up to five additional free Raid Passes by spinning Gym Photo Discs during the event and up to two hours afterward. The event also rewards Trainers an increased chance to receive Rare Candy XL from in-person Raid Battles.

Finally, for those that have just beaten an Ultra Beast Raid Battle, certain Pokémon will take their place right after, allowing Trainers to continue Raiding. When a Trainer defeats an Ultra Beast in a Raid Battle, Machoke, Scyther, Magmar, Gulpin, Absol, Minccino, Frillish, and Dedenne will appear around the Gym that hosted that Raid. In addition, Scyther, Magmar, Absol, and Minccino will have Shiny variants for Trainers to collect if they're lucky.

And that's all there is to it. For more information, feel free to visit Pokémon GO's official website. Remember, Pokémon GO Ultra Beasts Arrival will only last six hours, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm local time.
