Pokemon Ultra Moon and Ultra Sun: How to catch all Legendary Pokemon

How to catch all Legendary Pokemon in Ultra Moon and Ultra Sun

Much like the generation 3 remakes, it is possible to catch almost all Legendary Pokemon in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. However, the manner and method in which you capture the past Legendary’s are not what a veteran Pokemon trainer would expect. With over a dozen of legendary Pokemon to capture, I thought it might be an excellent idea on making a clear concise guide on how to catch all Legendary Pokemon in Pokmeon Ultra Suna and Ultra Moon.

For the most part I will be focusing on Legendary Pokemon obtained from the warp holes. If you want to know how to get the signature Legendary’s you can click here. To see how to get all the Ultra Beasts you can click here.


Traveling through the warp holes and catching Legendary

A large proportion of Legendary’s can be caught through the Ultra wormhole. This becomes available through story progression, however I highly recommend to attempt your Legendary hunt after defeating the Pokemon League. The warp hole is an easy concept to wrap your head around once you understand the concept.

Essentially, the goal is to travel as far as possible through the warp hole. You’ll notice four different wormhole colors (red, green, blue and White), each corresponds with a location offering rewards like normal pokemon, shiny’s and legendary’s. As a general rule of thumb, the further you travel down the wormhole, the greater the chance of encountering a Legendary Pokemon.

Below is an easy to follow guide on the location of each respectively Legendary and what what wormhole they can be found.
