It runs better than it flies. It takes off into the sky by running at a speed of 25 mph.
Sun Although apparently able to fly, they tended to run along the ground, averaging speeds of roughly 25 mph.
Moon They hunted in flocks. When one Archeops had the prey cornered, another would swoop on it.
Ultra Sun This ancient Pokémon’s plumage is delicate, so if anyone other than an experienced professional tries to restore it, they will fail.
Ultra Moon Said to be an ancestor of bird Pokémon, the muscles it uses to flap its wings are still weak, so it needs a long runway in order to take off.
