Pokémon GO Fest 2022 Day 2 introduces Nihilego
The Ultra Beasts are here!
Pokémon GO trainers are set to have a rather exciting second day of the current Pokémon GO Fest 2022. Ultra Wormholes are opening, which have connected the game to Ultra Space. With that comes the introduction of the Ultra Beast, Nihilego!
Nihilego, the Parasite Pokémon, makes its Pokémon GO debut in five-star raids on Sunday, June 5th, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. local time. Nihilego is a Rock- and Poison-type Pokémon. A life-form from another world, it was dubbed an Ultra Beast and is thought to produce a strong neurotoxin. Try using some Ground-type Pokémon you catch during Pokémon GO Fest to get an advantage in battle.
Along with that, Team GO Rocket and a curious individual from the GO Ultra Recon Squad have also been sighted near the Ultra Wormholes. Investigate the mysterious Ultra Wormholes and Ultra Beasts with the GO Ultra Recon Squad in Special Research tasks to learn more about the Ultra Wormholes appearing around the world.
Finally, Niantic has mentioned that it seems like Professor Willow has up and vanished from Pokémon GO. Literally no other details are shared about his disappearance, but clearly something is up! Keep an eye out for any hints as to his whereabouts when you’re out and about.
