Fomantis

Fomantis is a Grass type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Sickle Grass Pokémon.

Fomantis is nocturnal, and it performs photosynthesis while it sleeps during the day by spreading out its leaves in all directions. Because of the danger of staying in the same location two days in a row, Fomantis begins its search for the next day's spot as soon as the sun sets.

Fomantis evolves into Lurantis.
