'Pokemon Sun' And 'Moon' Post-Game: Unlock These Pokemon After Beating The Game

Ronald Cress

Pokemon Sun and Moon post-game offer a lot of activities and even missions that can only be accomplished once players have finished the main storyline. Aside from that, finishing the Pokedex is just not possible without playing through the post-game as some Pokemon are only unlocked after defeating the Elite Four.

Cosmog, Type: Null, And Silvally

Cosmog only exists in the other dimension and there are some steps required in order to catch it. You don't have to battle it, though, as you will automatically get it when you're in the right place. This Pokemon Sun and Moon guide does a good job of detailing the steps on how to get it if you're interested.

After which (or before, depends on you), go to Aether Paradise and head to the second floor. Find Gladion to talk to him and he will give you Type: Null just like that. This Pokemon will evolve into Silvally with max happiness.

The Ultra Beasts

After waking up in your room, go outside to speak to a strange old man. This will trigger the Ultra Beasts quest, which is broken down into several missions.

Before you set off for your first Ultra Beast mission, you will be given a set of 10 Ultra Balls. These do not work on normal Pokemon and you will be given a new set before each mission. If you somehow failed at catching all the required Pokemon in a mission, you can use normal Poke Balls.

The Four Tapus: Alola Islands' Guardians

The first you'll catch is Tapu Koko as Lillie will turn your character towards the Ruins of Conflict in Melemele Island. Afterward, you can challenge the other three: Tapu Lele in the Ruins of Life in Akala Island, Tapu Bulu in the Ruins of Abundance in Ula'ula Island, and Tapu Fini in the Ruins of hope in Poni Island.

Every Pokemon's Shiny Counterpart

When you've made sure to catch every Pokemon in the Pokedex, go to Heahea City in Akala Island and talk to the game director. He will give you the Shiny Charm, which will then increase your chances of encountering a Shiny in the wild. This item works well together with SOS chaining.

There are lots of other activities that can be done in Pokemon Sun and Moon post-game. You can get the other items you haven't gotten yet, participate in Global Missions, finish the side-quests, and so on. It is well likely that players will find other things to do after completing the main storyline.
