Flavor Text
SunIt grips its prey in its pincers and splits them apart. Although it is a powerful Pokémon, it can’t deal with the cold.
MoonOne solid blow from its horns is enough to split apart a large tree. Its greatest rival in Alola is Vikavolt.
Ultra SunIt gets into territorial disputes with Vikavolt. For some reason, it apparently gets along well with Heracross in Alola.
Ultra MoonAlthough it’s tough, it can’t handle cold well. When night falls, it buries itself in leafage and sleeps.
SunThe influence of Mega Evolution leaves it in a state of constant excitement. It pierces enemies with its two large horns before shredding them.
MoonBathed in the energy of Mega Evolution, its wings become unusually developed. It flies at speeds of approximately 30 mph.
Ultra SunAfter Mega Evolution, it becomes able to fly. Perhaps because it’s so happy, it rarely touches the ground.
Ultra MoonIt zips around at blistering speeds, looking for an opening to skewer its opponent on its giant pincers.
