Flavor Text
Sun It is the ancestor of all bird Pokémon. Archen itself could not actually fly but moved by hopping from treetop to treetop.
Moon To all appearances flightless, it was able to glide down from tall treetops to snag its prey.
Ultra Sun Once thought to be the ancestor of all bird Pokémon, some of the latest research suggests that may not be the case.
Ultra Moon Restored from a fossil, this ancient bird Pokémon has wings but can’t yet fly.
