Ultra Beasts are a new subset of the legendary Pokémon introduced in the Sun and Moon games and can now be found and captured in The Crown Tundra DLC for Sword and Shield.
These Pokémon from another dimension do not appear the second you set foot in the Crown Tundra. In fact, the Ultrabiesters have their own special side mission that is unlocked after the Trainers meet a few requirements.

Make your way through the four battles in each Dynamax adventure to have a chance of finding one of the Ultra Beasts. Of course, you won’t know if you have entered an adventure with an Ultra Beast until you actually encounter it, but once you have found it, you can go back to fighting it if you fail the first time.
There are nine Ultra Beasts to find in total, each with its own train sets and type combinations. Here is a list of the Ultra-Bies you can find in the Dynamax adventures with their type combinations:
Instructors can also find Ultra Beasts by participating in their Dynamax adventure via the online function.

Poipol gets to level 20 with the moves Helping Hand, Acid, Fury Attack and Fell Stinger. This Ultra Beast is unique because it is the only one that can evolve by becoming Naga Needle once it reaches a higher level after learning the Dragon Pulse.
Trainers can re-teach the Poipole Dragon Pulse with the help of the Motion Relainer at any Pokémon Center.
