Pokédex entries

X
Omega Ruby
Its whiskers serve as antennas. By sending and receiving electrical waves, it can communicate with others over vast distances.
Y
Alpha Sapphire
It uses its tail to absorb electricity from power plants or from outlets in houses, and then it fires the electricity from its whiskers.
Ultra Sun It sneaks into people’s homes and steals electricity from their outlets. When your electric bill seems off, it’s the handiwork of this rascal.
Ultra Moon Its upper whiskers are sensors that survey its surroundings. Its lower whiskers are organs that shoot electricity.
Sword A Dedenne’s whiskers pick up electrical waves other Dedenne send out. These Pokémon share locations of food or electricity with one another.
Shield Since Dedenne can’t generate much electricity on its own, it steals electricity from outlets or other electric Pokémon.
