Shield When wounded, it stops moving. It goes as still as stone to meditate, sharpening its mind and spirit.

Galarian Standard Mode

Sword On days when blizzards blow through, it comes down to where people live. It stashes food in the snowball on its head, taking it home for later.
Shield Though it has a gentle disposition, it’s also very strong. It will quickly freeze the snowball on its head before going for a headbutt.

Galarian Zen Mode

Shield Darmanitan takes this form when enraged. It won’t stop spewing flames until its rage has settled, even if its body starts to melt.
