Bruxish

Bruxish is a Water/Psychic type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Gnash Teeth Pokémon.

Bruxish emits a strong psychic power from the protuberance on its head. When its opponents are bathed in this power, they're stricken with terrible headaches and fall unconscious. As it emits its psychic power, it grinds its teeth loudly. When nearby Pokémon hear the sound of Bruxish's teeth gnashing, they sense danger and flee immediately.

Pokédex entries

Sun When it unleashes its psychic power from the protuberance on its head, the grating sound of grinding teeth echoes through the area.
Moon It stuns its prey with psychokinesis and then grinds them to mush with its strong teeth. Even Shellder’s shell is no match for it.
Ultra Sun It burrows beneath the sand, radiating psychic power from the protuberance on its head. It waits for prey as it surveys the area.
Ultra Moon Its skin is thick enough to fend off Mareanie’s spikes. With its robust teeth, Bruxish crunches up the spikes and eats them.
