Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Guide - Which Pokemon are Version Exclusive?

Here's all our Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon guides in one handy location, showing you how to beat tough boss encounters, capture all the new Pokemon, and reach all the brand new locations in the game. All you need to know about the Alola Photo Club and How to Farm Money Quickly.

Guide by Christopher Walden, Hirun Cryer, and Tom Orry, .

In both versions of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, there are version-exclusive Pokemon that you'll only be able to obtain in one version of the game, and not the other. In this Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon exclusive Pokemon guide, we'll be taking you through every version-exclusive Pokemon in both Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon.

But if you instead need anything else to do with Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon, including how to farm money quickly and effectively, as well as a list of all the brand new Z-Moves in the game, check out our Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon guides walkthrough hub.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Exclusive Pokemon Guide

As with every Pokémon instalment there are particular pokémon that can only be obtained in one of the two available versions. This is still the case in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, so if you have a favourite and want to make sure you can get them in-game, be sure to check the list below.

Both forms of Necrozma are also version-exclusive.

However, just because they’re version exclusive doesn’t mean they are impossible to obtain. By using Wonder Trade and the GTS, you’ll be able to find the regular exclusives in no time at all. The one-off legendaries are going to be trickier to obtain without purchasing both versions, but always keep an eye on the GTS just in case.

    Unfortunately, the "Ditto 5" do not come with guaranteed 3 max IVs, all mine only have 1 max IV, and they all vary in potential.
