Araquanid changes

Pokédex entries

Sun It delivers headbutts with the water bubble on its head. Small Pokémon get sucked into the bubble, where they drown.
Moon Despite what its appearance suggests, it cares for others. If it finds vulnerable, weak Pokémon, it protectively brings them into its water bubble.
Ultra Sun It usually passes its time in the water. When its belly is full, it stores its subdued prey in the water bubble on its head.
Ultra Moon It has a habit of storing things it values in its water bubble. If its Trainer doesn’t watch out, Araquanid will try to put them in its bubble!
Sword It launches water bubbles with its legs, drowning prey within the bubbles. This Pokémon can then take its time to savor its meal.
Shield It acts as a caretaker for Dewpider, putting them inside its bubble and letting them eat any leftover food.
