It’s a new Pokémon Generation so, of course, there are new Legendary Pokémon. With this guide, we’ll break down when and where you can find each Legendary in Sun & Moon, which includes the Tapus and the Ultra Beasts. So let’s not waste any time and get right to it. The first Legendary you’ll be able to catch is either Solgaleo or Lunala. Like many of the recent box cover Legendaries, this confrontation will happen automatically during the course of the story, and it will not continue until you’ve caught it. Fortunately, they’re not too hard to catch. Next is Tapu Koko, who will also be automatically confronted during the Epilogue of the main quest at the Ruins of Conflict. While we’re not completely sure, the fact that we were unable to save before the battle makes us believe that Tapu Koko must be caught to continue the story as well. After completing the main quest, you can begin searching for Legendaries in earnest. Tapu Lele can be found in the Ruins of Life on Akala Island. Simply touch its idol to make it appear.
Tapu Bulu is located in the Ruins of Abundance at the end of Haina Desert on Ula’ula Island. Because the desert is a bit maze-like, talk to the old man near the Probopass in the oasis for a clue on how to navigate it thanks to stacked stones. You’ll know you’ve reached the ruins when you see idols on either side of the path ahead. Once again, touch the idol inside the Ruins in order to battle Tapu Bulu. Tapu Fini is found on Poni Island in the Ruins of Hope. Touch its idol in order battle it, but be wary of Aqua Ring which makes catching the Tapu quite tricky. Next, we have Cosmog. In order to catch one, place either Solgaleo or Lunala in your party and head to the Altar on Poni Island. There you will find a strange portal. Examine it at night in Sun or during the day in Moon to cross over into the other world. While you can’t catch Pokémon not found in your version here, it mainly serves as a way to change the time of day, you can travel to the Lake of the Moone or Sunne depending on your version.
Once you reach the center with Solgaleo or Lunala in your party, it will come out and see its counterpart. Afterwards, Cosmog will appear and you’ll receive it automatically. Cosmog only learns two Moves and is pretty weak, but if you increase its level to 43, it will evolve into Cosmoem. And if you choose, you can evolve Cosmoem into either Solgaleo or Lunala depending on the version you have by getting it to level 53.
However, Cosmoem will only evolve into Solgaleo in Sun and Lunala in Moon so it mainly serves as way to get an extra Legendary that you can trade with friends. Then we have the Ultra Beasts. Once you exit your house after first finishing the main quest, you’ll be approached by an old man who gives you a note. It instructs you to go to the hotel on Akala Island where you’ll discover Looker and his Chief, Anabel. They explain the Ultra Beast threat but first you’ll have to defeat Anabel in battle. Once you do that, they provide instructions on where to find each new Ultra Beast that appears. You will also be given the new Beast Balls in order to catch them, 10 for each Beast.
In all honesty, this section is pretty self explanatory. You’ll be told where to find each Ultra Beast and will not be able to continue until the number required is caught, ranging from 1 to 4. UB-02 and UB-04 are different Beasts depending on the version you have, but otherwise you have to catch them all in order to continue this side story. You’ll know if you’re in the right place if the music changes and the Ultra Beasts are encountered by running through the tall grass in that area. Eventually you’ll find the five Beasts in your version and complete the side quest. But completing the Ultra Beast Quest also unlocks the final Legendary, Necrozma.
Looker talks about seeing a strange Pokémon on Melemele Island. Travel to Ten Carat Hill and enter the clearing on the other side of the cave. Be sure to save and then walk into the tall grass. Eventually, Necrozma will appear. Capture it and you’ll have obtained every Legendary Pokémon in Alola. Well, except for one. But Zygarde requires a guide of its own, which we’ll posting soon.
