Pokemon Zeraora: How to Get Zeraora in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

The electric legendary Pokemon Zeraora will soon be arriving in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Throughout the past year, since the launch of the games, Ultra Sun and Moon have steadily been receiving new pocket monsters every so often. But with this latest piece of DLC, the Pokemon well will run dry. That’s it (for now). So, what is the mythical Pokemon Zeraora and how do you get it?

What Is the New Legendary Pokemon Zeraora?

Zeraora is the latest, and last, gen 6 Pokemon. It is a legendary electric-type monster, the fifth of its kind. Its first major appearance was in the Japanese release of Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us, and its upcoming appearance in the games will mark the first time it has been seen in the West.

When you collect this electrifying creature, it will be at level 50 with Plasma Fists, Thunder Punch, Close Combat, and Thunder as its moves. It should be noted that Zeraora is the only Pokemon that can ever learn Plasma Fists. This attack will inflict damage to the opponent Pokemon and turns all Normal-type moves into Electric-type for the remainder of the turn. When you receive Zeraora, it will have the following stats:

  • HP: 88
  • Attack: 112
  • Defense: 75
  • Special Attack: 102
  • Special Defense: 80
  • Speed: 143

The Pokemon will also have the Volt Absorb ability which will heal a fraction of its HP when it is hit by an Electric-type move. It will also come with the Air Balloon held-item, which will make it immune to Ground-type attacks.

How To Get the Legendary Pokemon Zeraora

The only way to obtain the mythical Pokemon Zeraora is through code distribution. These events are normally done at various retailers, such as GameStop, where you will receive a download code for a Pokemon to use on your copy of the game. However, the only confirmed western release of the Zeraora codes is in Europe between October 1 and November 15. There is currently no news for an American release for this elusive ‘Mon.
