Flavor Text
Sun They gather on moonlit nights to form a large chorus. Their cries sound angry and not at all pleasant, but they are certainly distinctive.
Moon It’s the leader of Poliwag and Poliwhirl. When Politoed roars, they all cower in fear.
Ultra Sun Although its cries sound like screams, a composer created a beautiful ballad that was influenced by the sounds.
Ultra Moon The longer and more luxurious the curled hair on its head, the greater the number of Poliwag and Poliwhirl that will obey it.
