Decidueye

Decidueye is a Grass/Ghost type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Arrow Quill Pokémon.

Decidueye is able to move about while completely masking its presence from others. Once an opponent has lost sight of it, Decidueye seizes the chance to attack it unawares. In a tenth of a second, Decidueye plucks an arrow quill from within its wing and sends its hurtling toward its target.

Decidueye has a new Hisuian form, available in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

Decidueye

Sun It fires arrow quills from its wings with such precision, they can pierce a pebble at distances over a hundred yards.
Moon Although basically cool and cautious, when it’s caught by surprise, it’s seized by panic.
Ultra Sun It nocks its arrow quills and shoots them at opponents. When it simply can’t afford to miss, it tugs the vine on its head to improve its focus.
Ultra Moon Decidueye can nock and fire an arrow at an enemy in a tenth of a second, so its battles are decided in the blink of an eye.
Sword As if wielding a bow, it launches the arrow quills hidden among the feathers of its wings. Decidueye’s shots never miss.
Shield In a tenth of a second, it can nock and fire an arrow quill, piercing an opponent’s weak point before they notice what’s happening.

Hisuian Decidueye

Legends: Arceus The air stored inside the rachises of Decidueye’s feathers insulates the Pokémon against Hisui’s extreme cold. This is firm proof that evolution can be influenced by environment.
