Alpha Sapphire Absol has the ability to foretell the coming of natural disasters. It lives in a harsh, rugged mountain environment. This Pokémon very rarely ventures down from the mountains.
Sun Long ago, superstitions were spread about it, saying it brought disaster. This fed a hatred of it, and it was driven deep into the mountains.
Moon Although it’s said to bring disaster, in actuality, this Pokémon possesses a calm disposition and warns people of any crises that loom.
Ultra Sun The only thing unlucky about Absol is its appearance. It protects fields and warns people of disaster, so one ought to be grateful for it.
Ultra Moon The elderly call it the disaster Pokémon and detest it, but interest in its power to predict disasters is on the rise.

Mega Absol

Sun When this Pokémon whips the winglike fur on its back as though beating its wings, it sends an intimidating aura flying at its opponents.
Moon As the energy of Mega Evolution fills it, its fur bristles. What you see on its back are not true wings, and this Pokémon isn’t able to fly.
Ultra Sun Normally, it dislikes fighting, so it really hates changing to this form for battles.
Ultra Moon It converts the energy from Mega Evolution into an intimidating aura. Fainthearted people expire from shock at the sight of it.
