In Pokémon Sun and Moon the Ultra Beasts were introduced. Ultra Beasts are extra dimensional Pokémon that come from Ultra Space. Personally, I never cared for any of the Ultra Beasts. I like most of my favorite Pokémon because they are cute. None of the Ultra Beasts have been visually appealing at all. That is until Oct. 5, 2017.
A lot of interesting information about the new Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon game was announced in a video uploaded by The Official Pokémon YouTube Channel titled “Travel Beyond Alola in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon!” What stood out to me in the video was the announcement of UB Adhesive, the newest Ultra Beast. UB Adhesive joins the line-up of Ultra Beasts for the new game, alongside the previously announced UB Burst and UB Assembly.
UB Burst and UB Assembly followed the trend of unappealing Ultra Beast Pokémon. UB Burst is a strange looking clown and UB Assembly is a pile of bricks. There have been weird looking Pokémon designs throughout all generations of the Pokémon series. However, the Ultra Beasts have been consistently different because of their extra dimensional background.
UB Adhesive also looks different compared to previous Pokémon not categorized as an Ultra Beast. But it is also extremely adorable. UB Adhesive is tiny at 2 feet tall and 4 pounds. It floats and has a huge head with huge eyes. The Ultra Beast looks very much like an extraterrestrial being.
Even though UB Adhesive looks cute and cuddly, it is categorized as the “Poison Pin Pokémon.” The Pokémon Sun and Moon website states, “Their large heads are filled with venom, and they fire this venom from the poisonous needles on top of them.” Ouch.
The Pokémon may have a sensitive side to it. Based on the Pokémon Sun and Moon website, “UB Adhesive displays many emotions, and it’s said to be able to understand human speech if it spends enough time together with them.”
The only other information we know about this beast is it has the ability “Beast Boost.” This ability is shared with all the other Ultra Beasts.
Do you agree that UB Adhesive is adorable? Are you a fan of previous Ultra Beast designs? Be sure to tell me your opinions in the comment section below.
