Flavor Text
X If its two tail feathers are standing at attention, it is proof of good health. It soars elegantly in the sky.
Y It dives at a steep angle as soon as it spots its prey. It catches its prey with sharp claws.
Omega Ruby Swellow flies high above our heads, making graceful arcs in the sky. This Pokémon dives at a steep angle as soon as it spots its prey. The hapless prey is tightly grasped by Swellow's clawed feet, preventing escape.
Alpha Sapphire Swellow is very conscientious about the upkeep of its glossy wings. Once two Swellow are gathered, they diligently take care of cleaning each other's wings.
