Garbodor

Black It clenches opponents with its left arm and finishes them off with foul-smelling poison gas belched from its mouth.
White They absorb garbage and make it part of their bodies. They shoot a poisonous liquid from their right-hand fingertips.

Sun Beware the poisonous liquid it shoots from its right arm. If even a little of it gets on you, you’ll experience the effects of the unidentified toxin.
Moon For a time, their numbers increased explosively in Alola. Since the arrival of Grimer, their population has decreased dramatically.
Ultra Sun It locks opponents in place with its left hand, immobilizing them by entirely dousing their bodies with poisonous liquid.
Ultra Moon Some say the reason Garbodor in Alola are a little stronger than their counterparts elsewhere is the presence of Muk, their natural enemy.
Sword This Pokémon eats trash, which turns into poison inside its body. The main component of the poison depends on what sort of trash was eaten.
Shield The toxic liquid it launches from its right arm is so virulent that it can kill a weakened creature instantly.

Gigantamax

Sword Due to Gigantamax energy, this Pokémon’s toxic gas has become much thicker, congealing into masses shaped like discarded toys.
Shield It sprays toxic gas from its mouth and fingers. If the gas engulfs you, the toxins will seep in all the way down to your bones.
