  • Sun

    One of the dangerous Ultra Beasts, it has been spotted running across the land at terrific speeds.

  • Moon

    One of the Ultra Beasts. It refuses to touch anything, perhaps because it senses some uncleanness in this world.

  • Ultra Sun

    A life-form that lives in another world, its body is thin and supple, but it also possesses great power.

  • Ultra Moon

    Although it's alien to this world and a danger here, it's apparently a common organism in the world where it normally lives.

  • Pheromosa can be seen as a counterpart to Buzzwole. Both are Bug/Fighting-types, but while Buzzwole is exclusive to Sun and masculine-looking, Pheromosa is exclusive to Moon and feminine-looking.
  • Pheromosa bears a close resemblance to Lusamine, especially in its shiny form.
  • It is unknown why Pheromosa can learn Roost, a move used often by Flying or levitating Pokémon.


Pheromosa is based on a cockroach with humanoid traits. It particularly resembles the molted shell of a cockroach, which are usually white or transparent. With the theory that the original seven Ultra Beasts are based on the Seven Deadly Sins, Pheromosa may be based on the sin of lust, as it is capable of giving off pheromones that make other Pokémon become attracted to its appearance. Being a counterpart to Buzzwole, it may play off of the Fight Or Flight response theme of the two, with Pheromosa resembling the Flight response and usually relying on speed.


Pheromosa may incorporate "pheromone", "mimosa" (a type of silky tree plant), "hermosa" (Spanish for "beautiful"), or "formosa" (Portuguese for "beautiful"), and the suffix "-a" which is used in languages to represent a female or something feminine in appearance or quality.

Ferōche comes from "pheromone," "feroce" ("fierce" in Italian, often considered a "romantic" or "classy" language), and "cockroach."
