They also have an alternate future counterpart known as Ultra Rangers. However, an Ultra Beast known as Guzzlord is deemed too powerful for them, eventually they failed to protect Alola from its dystopian destruction, with one of the region’s survivors manage to escape, or went into hiding where they can be found by the surviving former ranger, Dia and his Zeraora safely to find shelters and calls their former ranger colleagues from that Ultra Beast. Until the sudden appearance of Ash and his Pikachu into the Ultra Rangers' universe cause the Shiny Tapu Koko resurfaced to aid both Ash and Dia to defeat Guzzlord once and for all, restoring the alternate Alola.

- The Ultra Guardians' suits are identical outside color differences (for example, Ash wearing blue and Kiawe red).
- Ash and Lana both wear blue, but different shades to differentiate them.
- The suits are similar to the Sentai uniform worn by the characters in various Sentai series but not wearing their Sentai helmets.
- The suit up is also similar to G Gundam's Combat Suit, and the uniforms have similar suits design as Timeranger's pre-Ranger form Chrono Change suit.
- As the heroes' Pokémon were transforming into Ultra Guardians, the females were given ribbons while the males were given pendants. However, genderless Pokémon member of Ultra Guardians are random, such as Naganadel, Silvally and Melmetal being randomly designate as a "male" while Shaymin being randomly designate as a "female".
- In her Ultra Guardians' suit, Lillie brings back her ponytail hairstyle.
- Five of the seven ride Pokemon for the Ultra Guardians are Dragon type, with the exceptions being Kiawe's Charizard and Sophocles's Metang.
- When the group is shown on various Ride Pokémon, Kiawe is on what is most likely his usual Charizard while Ash (having previously been on one early into his Kalos adventure) is on a Garchomp.
- Ash himself owns a Charizard and Noivern has flown on the former previously, but he is more battle-minded than the Ride Pokémon.
- Each Ultra Guardian Trainers shares same designs on each two different Z-Ring designs, particularly on each rings, but different colors. Ash’s Z-Ring was different before getting an upgrade.
