Ultra Warp Ride

Ultra Warp Ride

Legendary Pokémon

Add Legendary Pokemon to your team to make it even more unstoppable!

All the Legendary Pokemon from previous generations excluding Mythicals are available for capture in Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon! How? Through Ultra Warp Ride, of course.

Legendary Pokemon can be found in any non-white Ultra Wormhole, but you have your greatest chance of landing jackpot in the fourth tier of wormhole. Of course those are also the hardest to find but try to get the rarest wormholes possible.

You will know that a Legendary has spawned when a message talking about you sensing "the presence of immense power" shows up on the screen. Unfortunately you don’t really have much of a way of knowing what has spawned until you see it, so make sure you save beforehand.

If you’re not ready to take that particular Legendary on, you can leave or knock it out. Legendary Pokemon only become unobtainable after you have caught one of it.

Doesn’t Matter Where They’re From

Some legendaries are version exclusive, and more confusing still, other legendaries require you to have two legendaries related to them in your party, or they just won’t show. To make things trickier, those two legendaries are usually version exclusives as well.

Don’t fret, however! You don’t need the legendaries from Ultra Space. If you played previous Pokemon games and migrated your Legendary Pokemon into your copy of Ultra Sun or Ultra Moon, dump them into your party and keep hunting!

Similar to Ultra Beasts, Legendary Pokemon found through Ultra Wormholes are not shiny locked. Simply save before the encounter and soft reset until you get your coveted shiny. These Legendary Pokemon will not come with their Hidden Ability. Again, no Mythicals can be caught through Ultra Warp Ride (Mew, Celebi, etc.).
