When Alcremie is content, the cream it secretes from its hands becomes sweeter and richer. The moment it evolved, it took on a complex flavor. This is because of the way its cells spontaneously shifted during evolution. The cells that compose its cream fluctuated suddenly during evolution, giving the cream a complex flavor..
