Ultra Beasts are a group of extradimensional Pokémon originating from Ultra Space that appeared in the Sun & Moon series. Many of them were the subject of missions taken by Ash and his classmates in their capacity as Ultra Guardians, in order to maintain the safety of the Alola region whenever they stray into the Pokémon world.

As Nihilego Unknown Haven Paschall

Nihilego was first seen in a flashback during A Masked Warning!. Gladion revealed to Ash that Nihilego had attempted to kidnap Lillie when she was younger. These events, along with Faba wiping her memories afterwards, lead her to fear touching Pokémon.

Another Nihilego appeared in Faba's Revenge!, when Faba created an Ultra Wormhole using Nebby's power. After appearing in the Aether Foundation basement laboratories, Nihilego promptly knocked out Faba before reaching out for Lillie. However, she was protected by Lusamine, who was captured instead and then taken through the Wormhole. After attaching itself to Lusamine, it started playing on her desires and reduced her mentality to that of a child's.

Lusamine fused with Nihilego

As such, when Gladion, Ash, and his classmates came to save her in Rescuing the Unwilling!, she instead ran away, releasing her Pokémon enhanced by Nihilego's power as a deterrent. Nihilego also used various other means to deter the children, but in the end was cornered by Ash, Lillie, and Gladion. When Lillie managed to get through to Lusamine, Nihilego interfered, trying to keep Lusamine to itself. In the end, Ash managed to defeat it using 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt in 10,000,000 Reasons to Fight!, allowing Lusamine to separate from it.

Personality and characteristics

Nihilego is a very hostile Pokémon, attacking anyone on sight and even kidnapping Lusamine. According to Gladion, Nihilego might have an interest in humans, which is why it fused itself with Lusamine; this was an attempt to learn more about them.

As Celesteela N/A

Celesteela appeared in Rise and Shine, Starship!, where it was found by Sophocles while camping out at the Bamboo Hill. It actually arrived in Alola approximately 200 years ago in what was believed to be a naturally appearing Ultra Wormhole, and was stuck in the ground ever since, passively absorbing energy for a take off. After it was dug up, Celesteela was discovered by Lusamine's group, who told the Ultra Guardians to go out and catch it. Their attempts to catch it failed, as Celesteela was too deeply rooted to the ground at the time. When they discovered that Celesteela was preparing to take off, the Ultra Guardians realized that the flames produced when it flies would set the surrounding area ablaze. Using their Ride Pokémon, the Ultra Guardians were able to construct a defensive barrier, allowing Celesteela to safely blast off and return back to its home.

Personality and characteristics

Celesteela has an extraordinary amount of determination to return home, as seen in Rise and Shine, Starship!, where it prepared to blast off despite the Ultra Guardians' requests for it to wait until they can form a protective barrier around it.

It made its physical debut in The Prism Between Light and Darkness!, where it encountered the Ultra Guardians after they arrived in its home world with Lunala's help. After being healed, Naganadel telepathically told everyone how Necrozma lost its light saving the world from a meteor, causing everything to become a dark and barren wasteland. Afterwards, the Ultra Guardians decided to help restore Naganadel's world by sharing their Z-Power with Necrozma in order to turn it back to its former self.

In Securing the Future!, Naganadel helped Necrozma regain its true form by giving it some of its Z-Power. Once successful, Necrozma turned back into Ultra Necrozma and restored Naganadel's home world to its former glory. As the Ultra Guardians prepared to leave, Naganadel informed Ash that Poipole wished to stay behind and protect its home, much to Ash's sadness.

As Stakataka Unknown Daniel J. Edwards

Stakataka entered Alola through an Ultra Wormhole at the Pokémon School. The initial attempts by the Ultra Guardians to catch it failed due to it managing to avoid all of their Beast Balls, and during the following night, it moved to a construction site owned by Viren, where it was mistaken for a pedestal for a statue of Viren. Once the statue was placed on top of it, Stakataka became angry and started rampaging around until Ash removed the statue. Stakataka then let itself be caught by Ash upon learning that he wanted to help it get back home. Later, back at the Pokémon School, Stakataka was safely returned to its home dimension through an Ultra Wormhole.
