With the release of The Official Alola Region Collector’s Edition Pokédex, fans get an inside look at concept art for some Alola region Pokémon, but the images that have really become popular were the concept art images for the games Ultra Beasts.
In Pokémon Sun and Moon, we not only get introduced to 80 new Pokémon, but also to the Ultra Beasts. An Ultra Beast is an extradimensional Pokémon who is unexpectedly brought into Alola by an Ultra Wormhole. As of right now, there are seven known Ultra Beasts.
If you wanted to get a closer look at these Ultra Beasts, now you can! The book offers readers the chance to get a close-up look at how these beasts are designed, as well as how they function with included artists notes. Most of the notes are in Japanese, excluding Buzzwole and Guzzlord, but that does not take away from the entertainment aspect of it. Most images show the Ultra Beasts in action poses, which some readers have found quite comedic.
This concept art of Buzzwole shows how much he likes to flex his muscles! As flashy as this bug/fighting type looks with his power and victory poses, you would not want to be running into him anytime soon and risk being the victim of his vital punch or leech life attacks. Also, that grab/energy drain combo looks pretty terrifying.
Another page in the book which readers will find is the concept are for the psychic-type legendary Pokémon Necrozma. Known to have been asleep underground for many years, the International Police do not know exactly where Necrozma came from, but this Pokémon is thought to be related to the Ultra Beasts.
If Ultra Beast concept art is not reason enough for you to buy the book, The Official Alola Region Collector’s Edition Pokédex also comes with a high-quality lithograph set, information on each Pokémon’s stats and abilities as well as where to find them, interviews with the game’s directors and producer, and more. The book is available for purchase now!
