Cherrim

Diamond It blooms during times of strong sunlight. It tries to make up for everything it endured as a bud.
Pearl It is docile as a bud, but turns cheerful when it blooms. It folds back into a bud if sunlight wanes.
Platinum If it senses strong sunlight, it opens its folded petals to absorb the sun’s rays with its whole body.

Shining Pearl It is docile as a bud and turns cheerful when it blooms. It folds back into a bud if sunlight wanes.
Legends: Arceus Motionless, save for the occasional quiver. A rich array of Pokémon can be found gathered around it, drawn by the scent exuded from Cherrim’s folded petals.

Overcast Form

Sword As a bud, it barely moves. It sits still, placidly waiting for sunlight to appear.
Shield Its folded petals are pretty tough. Bird Pokémon can peck at them all they want, and Cherrim won’t be bothered at all.

Sunshine Form

Sword After absorbing plenty of sunlight, Cherrim takes this form. It’s full of energy while it’s like this, and its liveliness will go on until sundown.
Shield The faint scent that emanates from its full blossom entices bug Pokémon to it.
Legends: Arceus Cheerfully active on sunny days. Immediately closes its petals and becomes immobile once the sun becomes hidden, however.
