Dartrix

Dartrix is a Grass/Flying type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Blade Quill Pokémon.

Dartrix is extremely sensitive to other presences in the area and can detect opponents behind it and throw feathers to strike them without even seeing them. This Pokémon conceals sharp-bladed feathers inside its wings, showing astounding precision as it sends them flying in attack.

Pokédex entries

Sun A bit of a dandy, it spends its free time preening its wings. Its preoccupation with any dirt on its plumage can leave it unable to battle.
Moon It throws sharp feathers called blade quills at enemies or prey. It seldom misses.
Ultra Sun This narcissistic Pokémon is a clean freak. If you don’t groom it diligently, it will stop listening to you.
Ultra Moon Supremely sensitive to the presence of others, it can detect opponents standing behind it, flinging its sharp feathers to take them out.
Sword It throws one knifelike feather after another at its enemies, and each one precisely strikes a weak point. These feathers are known as blade quills.
Shield It never slacks when it comes to the task of cleaning its feathers. Thorough preening keeps it looking spiffy and its blade quills nice and sharp.
Legends: Arceus Regularly basks in sunlight to gather power—presumably due to the frigid climate. Nonetheless, the edges of the blade quills set into its wings are keen as ever.
