Pokédex entries

Darumaka

Black When its internal fire is burning, it cannot calm down and it runs around. When the fire diminishes, it falls asleep.
White Darumaka’s droppings are hot, so people used to put them in their clothes to keep themselves warm.
Black 2
White 2

X
Omega Ruby

Y
Alpha Sapphire
When it sleeps, it pulls its limbs into its body and its internal fire goes down to 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit.
Sword It derives its power from fire burning inside its body. If the fire dwindles, this Pokémon will immediately fall asleep.
Shield This popular symbol of good fortune will never fall over in its sleep, no matter how it’s pushed or pulled.

Galarian Darumaka

Sword It lived in snowy areas for so long that its fire sac cooled off and atrophied. It now has an organ that generates cold instead.
Shield The colder they get, the more energetic they are. They freeze their breath to make snowballs, using them as ammo for playful snowball fights.
