Bounsweet

Bounsweet is a Grass type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Fruit Pokémon.

Because it exudes a delicious smell from its entire body, Bounsweet is popular with Pokémon and people of the Alola region. Bounsweet's scent has a calming effect on humans, so many people let them live inside their homes as a sort of air freshener. Unfortunately, it’s sometimes swallowed whole by Pokémon drawn to its aroma.

When running away from other Pokémon, Bounsweet flees danger by skipping along the ground. Since its bouncy movements don’t convey to others that it’s actually in desperate flight, no one ever comes to its aid.

Pokédex entries

Sun A delectable aroma pours from its body. They are often swallowed whole by Toucannon lured by that wafting deliciousness.
Moon Although it’s too sugary for human consumption, Bounsweet’s sweat can be watered down into a juice with just the right amount of sweetness.
Ultra Sun Because of its sweet, delicious aroma, bird Pokémon are always after it, but it’s not intelligent enough to care.
Ultra Moon It tries to resist being swallowed by a bird Pokémon by spinning the sepals on its head. It’s usually a fruitless attempt.
Sword Its body gives off a sweet, fruity scent that is extremely appetizing to bird Pokémon.
Shield When under attack, it secretes a sweet and delicious sweat. The scent only calls more enemies to it.
