Pokemon GO – Ultra Beast Arrival Event Bonuses and Features

Pokemon GO trainers can prepare for the upcoming Ultra Beasts Arrival with this breakdown of all the bonuses, features, and raids on the way.


The early winter season is about to be revealed in Pokemon GO, but the last few fall events are still playing out over the coming weeks. The Astral Eclipse kicks off later this week with some exciting new debuts and it won’t be long before players are racing around to battle Ultra Beasts, as well.


Pokemon GO’s Ultra Beasts are returning during the final days of November for an event that is full of exciting bonuses and features. The Ultra Beasts Arrival activities kick off on November 27 and players will need to act quickly if they want to encounter and catch as many of them as possible during the short six-hour event.

During the single day event there will be a lot to keep track off. Various Battle Raids will be appearing based on location and players will have a lot of individual and group bonuses that they can take advantage of while the activities are live. With five free Raid Passes up for grabs, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the main focus of the day will be on battling against the Ultra Beasts in Legendary Raids…
