Pokémon GO Fest comes to an end tomorrow (August 28) with a series of one-day events that are guaranteed to keep the celebrations going in style. Perhaps the biggest of these events is the arrival of four Ultra Beast Pokémon that will make their way into five-star raid battles over the course of the day.

In order to spread the news of this upcoming event, the official Pokémon GO Twitter has released a series of ‘found footage’ style trailers, showing Nihilego, Buzzwole, Pheromosa and Xurkitree appearing in urban areas around the world and wreaking havoc.

All videos lead up to the end of tomorrow’s Pokémon GO Fest, with the ‘Ultra Beast Raid’ available to players around the world.
