Ultra Necrozma is known as the Blinding One in the anime, but I'm not sure if that counts. Also I think Ultra Beasts can go there
Ultra Necrozma is the Blinding One in the games, too
It is? I didn't see anything about it in Pokedex entries
I think the Ultra Recon Squad call it that in the games
I played through UM recently, pretty sure it was the Ultra Recon squad that called it that
What about Arceus
Do you know of any Arceus aliases? I think there’s one in Legends: Arceus but I wasn’t certain bc I haven’t played it yet
