Pokédex entries

Sword It’s very curious, but its means of investigating things is to try to punch them with its tentacles. The search for food is what brings it onto land.
Shield Its tentacles tear off easily, but it isn’t alarmed when that happens—it knows they’ll grow back. It’s about as smart as a three-year-old.
