Any frontal attack is repulsed. It is a docile Pokémon that feeds on grass and berries.
Sun While it can guard against any sort of attack from the front, it is left without recourse when attacked from behind.
Moon It lived in the same environments as Rampardos. Their fossils have been found together— seemingly from after they’d fought to the finish.
Ultra Sun The bones of its face are huge and hard, so they were mistaken for its spine until after this Pokémon was successfully restored.
Ultra Moon This Pokémon is from roughly 100 million years ago. Its terrifyingly tough face is harder than steel.
