The extra-dimensional Ultra Wormholes have reappeared in Pokémon Go, which means this is your chance to get your hands on some very rare legendary Pokémon. If you’re wondering what these things are exactly, we’ll explain what Ultra Wormholes in Pokémon Go.

What are the Ultra Wormholes in Pokémon Go?

In the universe of Pokémon, there’s another dimension space simply known as “Ultra Space”. This dimension is home to the strongest Pokémon ever recorded, known as the “Ultra Beasts”. These Pokémon look very distinct and are incredibly powerful!

In Pokémon Go, Ultra Wormholes can appear in the world above certain Gyms, taking the place of normal raids. If there’s an Ultra Wormhole appearing near you, the nearby radar alerts you. Keep an eye out for any notifications, and check around your surroundings to see if there any opening up.

Once you find a Gym with an Ultra Wormhole, you’ll see a timer next to it—this shows you exactly when the Ultra Beast spawns out of the Wormhole. Prepare yourself for a battle, because the Ultra Beast raids are 5 stars and the some of the hardest raids in the game right now. You’ll need a lot of Trainers nearby to work together, so rally your friends!

The Ultra Wormholes only appear during special events, so make sure to keep an eye out for the latest news and update for upcoming events in Pokémon Go. There’s also a whole research mission chain that involves a new character and the Ultra Wormholes, so be sure to check that out.
