Ultra SunSavage, violent Pokémon, red and blue Basculin are always fighting each other over territory.
Ultra MoonWhen a school of Basculin appears in a lake, everything else disappears, except for Corphish and Crawdaunt. That’s how violent Basculin are.
Ultra SunEven Basculin, which devours everything it can with its huge jaws, is nothing more than food to organisms stronger than itself.
Ultra MoonSome people call it “the thug of the lake.” Whether the differences in color are meaningful is not yet known.
