Ultra Beast

Most Poké Balls have difficulty recognizing Ultra Beasts as Pokémon due to their extradimensional origins, impairing their ability to effectively catch them. Only the [[Master Ball]] and {{ball|Beast}}s escape this impairment.
Although unconfirmed, [[Aether Foundation]] scientists hypothesized that {{p|Cosmog}} is also an Ultra Beast, due to its ability to create Ultra Wormholes. {{p|Necrozma}}'s [[Pokédex]] entry also states that it is "reminiscent of the Ultra Beasts", but when it was in the wild, the International Police reported that all Ultra Beasts it had detected had been caught, and Beast Balls are not effective at catching it. Additionally, [[Dulse]] refers to Necrozma as "a creature almost like an Ultra Beast" in Pokémon Ultra Sun. In the {{pkmn|anime}}, the Aether Foundation, mistaking {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Necrozma}} for an Ultra Beast, gives it the codename "UB: Black".
Guzzlord debuted in [[SM100]], where it was shown to have destroyed an alternate version of [[Hau'oli City]], leaving behind the [[Ultra Ruin]].
In the anime, [[Nebby]] was speculated to be an Ultra Beast by the [[Aether Foundation]] before its relationship to the [[Legendary Pokémon]] {{p|Solgaleo}} was fully understood. Similarly, {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Necrozma}}, having not yet been identified as the "Blinding One" of Alolan myth, was given the codename UB Black (Japanese: '''{{tt|UB:BLACK|ユービー:ブラック}}''' ''UB: Black'').
