Update: We now know how to get Zeraora in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon!
Those with Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon must use a secret code to receive the lightning-fast Mythical Pokémon, which will be available at participating retailers in Europe from Monday 1st October – Thursday 15th November.
Zeraora is Level 50, has the Volt Absorb ability and knows the moves Plasma Fists, Thunder Punch, Close Combat and Thunder, and comes with the Held Item, Air Balloon.
Original: If capturing the Legendary Pokémon that appear in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon wasn’t keeping you busy enough, many have been wondering how they can get Zeraora in the Nintendo 3DS exclusives.
But, the problem is that Zeraora hasn’t even been officially announced. It was data miners that leaked the existence of the new Mythical Pokémon, and it is believed that Zeraora will be made available in a special event next year.
That will be when it is released as a Mystery Gift, but whether that will be down to retailers to hand out special codes or an online distribution event is unclear.
Known as the Thunderclap Pokémon, it has been discovered that Zeraora is an Electric-type Mythical Pokémon with the Volt Absorb ability – which lets it heal up to a quarter of its maximum Hit Points when struck with an Electric-type move.
We will let you know whenever the distribution event is announced, but, for now, here’s everything that we know about Zeraora at this point in time:
