Sword Five of them are troopers, and one is the brass. The brass’s orders are absolute.
Shield The six of them work together as one Pokémon. Teamwork is also their battle strategy, and they constantly change their formation as they fight.
Scarlet The brass, which is the one that stands at the front and issues orders, is the strongest and smartest of the six.
Violet The leader, known as the brass, uses its extendible horn to issue orders to the others when it’s time to change formation.
