Flavor Text
SunIt unleashes electric shocks that can reach 100,000 volts. When agitated, it can knock out even an Indian elephant.
MoonIt becomes aggressive when it has electricity stored up. At such times, even its Trainer has to take care to avoid being attacked.
SunIt only evolves to this form in the Alola region. According to researchers, its diet is one of the causes of this change.
MoonIt uses psychokinesis to control electricity. It hops aboard its own tail, using psychic power to lift the tail and move about while riding it.
