Pokédex entries

Diamond It slams foes by sharply uncoiling its rolled ears. It stings enough to make a grown-up cry in pain.
Pearl When it senses danger, it perks up its ears. On cold nights, it sleeps with its head tucked into its fur.
Platinum Its ears are always rolled up. They can be forcefully extended to shatter even a large boulder.
HeartGold
SoulSilver
You can tell how it feels by the way it rolls its ears. When it’s scared, both ears are rolled up.
Black
White
Its ears are always rolled up. They can be forcefully extended to shatter even a large boulder.
Black 2
White 2
By extending its rolled-up ears and striking the ground, it can bound so high it surprises itself.
X
Omega Ruby
Its ears are always rolled up. They can be forcefully extended to shatter even a large boulder.
Y
Alpha Sapphire
When it senses danger, it perks up its ears. On cold nights, it sleeps with its head tucked into its fur.
Ultra Sun Its arms and legs are weak, but when it rolls its ears up tight and then unleashes them with its full force, it can smash boulders to dust.
Ultra Moon The reason it keeps one ear rolled up is so it can launch a swift counterattack if it’s attacked by an enemy.
