UB-01 by Tapwing UB-01 by Tapwing
"While evidence of something like a survival instinct can be observed in UB-01, no one knows whether it has a will of its own or any emotions. It’s said that, for some reason, its movements resemble those of a young girl."

I am VERY curious to see where Pokemon goes with these ultra beasts, especially UB-01.
a jellyfish with the likeness of a little girl, it almost feels like something that'd be part of a ghost story. 
What are your theories?


drawn in procreate.

Acts like a little girl? This would be a nice idea for an origin story maybe... Like a Pokemon AU...

Every time I see this wonderful piece of art, the first thing that pops into my head is the echoing of a ghostly laughter of a young girl playing in an abandoned playground. That's a good thing!! I love it! Keep up the good work!

Easily the scariest UB. Screw Guzzlord and Buzzwole. Those things will straight-up kill you but this one will get inside your head and drive you mad.

Hey, did you know that there are parasitic organisms that can affect their host's behavior in real life, too?

A good example of this is the parasitic wasp Dinocampus coccinellae, which parasitizes ladybugs and forces them to act as a bodyguard for the wasp's cocoon. About 25% of ladybugs are actually able to recover from this!

Yeah, there are also different kinds of fungi and bacteria that alter their host's cognitive functions in order to better suit them.

That's what I was thinking! There is most likely going to be a movie/anime episode with this thing in it.

By now you might have heard this theory, but I heard theories about how the Ultra Beasts might be humans who have the power to shapeshift into these Ultra Beasts, or vice versa. Hint how some of the Ultra Beasts resemble some human characters, like UB-01 resembles Lillie; they both have long dangly hair (or something that looks like hair), both have a dress like design on them, and have both what looks like a hat.

It's more twisted- Lillie was dressed up in likeness of Nihilego or UB-01.

You know it's possible to catch Ultra Beasts using Beast Balls, after you beat the game.

I think this thing is a baby compared to the other Ultra Beasts. A baby blindly following "Papa's" orders.

well, considering their official name in french is Ultra Chimera....

my guess? alternate form of certain characters.
powerup form to some, unwanted transformation to others

So that's what they're called in French?  Never knew that.

But still, considering that Type:Null/Silvally is a "chimera" of sorts as well...my personal guess is that they're biological weapons created by the Aether Foundation, and their resemblance to certain characters is due to the DNA samples that were used in their creation.  (For example, UB-01 may have been made from a sample of Lillie's DNA, and UB-02 Beauty may have been made from a sample of Lusamine's DNA.)

could be
could also be power up forms (or unwanted transformations for some)
could be aliens (like so many suggest)

the only way to find out for sure is to wait until the game is here
