Crystal It sheds many layers of skin as it grows larger. During this process, it is protected by a rapid waterfall.

Sun It grows by molting repeatedly. Boots made from the tanned cast-off skin are a super luxury item.
Moon After a 10-hour struggle, a fisherman was able to pull one up and confirm its existence.
Ultra Sun It’s still weak, so it lurks on the floor of bodies of water, eating whatever food sinks down and living a quiet life.
Ultra Moon It sheds its skin—almost on a daily basis—and grows larger. Its skin is soft just after it’s been shed.
