Black When attacked, it escapes by shooting cotton from its body. The cotton serves as a decoy to distract the attacker.
White They go wherever the wind takes them. On rainy days, their bodies are heavier, so they take shelter beneath big trees.

Perhaps because they feel more at ease in a group, they stick to others they find. They end up looking like a cloud.

Perhaps because they feel more at ease in a group, they stick to others they find. They end up looking like a cloud.
Sun When it finds others of its kind, they all stick together. When enough of them have collected, the mass resembles a cumulonimbus cloud.
Moon Pillows and beds stuffed with cotton exhaled by Cottonee are soft and puffy, light and airy— altogether top quality.
Ultra Sun To protect itself, it shoots cotton from its body. When it gets wet in the rain, its cotton grows moist and heavy, and it can’t move as well.
Ultra Moon When attacked, it expels cotton from its body to create a diversion. The cotton it loses grows back in quickly.
