Ultra Beasts will appear in Raids throughout the week.

The Inbound from Ultra Space event in Pokémon GO will lead us into Pokémon GO Fest: Global with a range of Ultra Beast Raids. The event runs the week before GO Fest Global, from July 8 until July 13.

This event is similar to the 'Road to Sinnoh' event we saw back in February. A different Ultra Beast will spawn in Raids each day. Additionally, there will be a special Raid Hour between 6 and 7pm local time.

Inbound from Ultra Space Pokémon GO Raids

Each day of the Inbound from Ultra Space event, a different Ultra Beast will feature in Five Star Raids.

Here are the Pokémon that will appear each day:

Monday, July 8

Tuesday, July 9

Wednesday, July 10
Celesteela (Southern Hemisphere)
Kartana (Northern Hemisphere)

Thursday, July 11
Stakataka (Eastern Hemisphere)
Blacephalon (Western Hemisphere)

Friday, July 12
Buzzwole (The Americas and Greenland)
Pheromosa (Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India)
Xurkitree (Asia-Pacific)

Worried about the Pokémon that are region locked? The Remote Raid Pass limit will be increased to 20 from Monday, July 8, to Thursday, July 11. In addition, there will be no limit on Remote Raids from Friday, July 12, to Sunday, July 14. This will allow you to join in some raids for those Pokémon not avaliable in your area.

New backgrounds

New to this event, Special Backgrounds will be avaliable for Ultra Beasts caught during this event. Previously, these Backgrounds have been reserved for In-Person events only.

Now, they will be avaliable in Pokémon GO globally for the first time during the Inbound from Ultra Space event.

However, these Special Backgrounds will not be guaranteed and will be a random chance.

Timed Research

There will also be an Ultra Beast themed Timed Research avaliable during the event. If you complete the tasks you will earn encounters with all of the following Ultra Beasts:

  • Nihilego*
  • Buzzwole*
  • Pheromosa*
  • Xurkitree*
  • Celesteela*
  • Kartana*
  • Guzzlord*
  • Stakataka
  • Blacephalon
