Usually for Nintendo's near-weekly Pokemon Sun and Moon updates, we'll get a new character here or an Alolan Form there. But this week, it's nothing but Ultra Beasts. Bulging, muscley, deeply unsettling Ultra Beasts. The creatures aren't even technically classified as Pokemon as of right now -- in fact, many have speculated that they are some kind of human/Pokemon hybrid. Revealed this week: UB-02 Absorption (known as Expansion in Japan) and UB-02 Beauty, exclusive to Sun and Moon versions, respectively. We'll let you guess which one is which.
Since these... things were unveiled in a Japanese magazine earlier this week and subsequently spread throughout the web, the internet at large has had a good while to contemplate their feelings on these weirdos.
