Pokédex entries

Diamond It nests in small, horizontal holes in cave walls. It pounces to catch prey that stray too close.
Pearl It once lived in the tropics. To avoid the cold, it lives in caves warmed by geothermal heat.
Platinum It attacks using its huge mouth. While its attacks are powerful, it hurts itself out of clumsiness, too.

Sun It lives in caves warmed by geothermal heat. Even so, when the weather gets cold, it will huddle close with others of its kind.
Moon It skulks in caves, and when prey or an enemy passes by, it leaps out and chomps them. The force of its attack sometimes chips its teeth.
Ultra Sun It reacts to anything that moves—flies right at it and bites it. Sometimes it injures itself, but it doesn’t care too much.
Ultra Moon Its original home is an area much hotter than Alola. If you’re planning to live with one, your heating bill will soar.
Sword Gible prefers to stay in narrow holes in the sides of caves heated by geothermal energy. This way, Gible can stay warm even during a blizzard.
Shield Gible attacks anything that moves, and it drags whatever it catches into the crevice that is its lair. Despite the big mouth, Gible’s stomach is small.
Brilliant Diamond It nests in small, horizontal holes in cave walls. It pounces to catch prey that stray too close.
Shining Pearl It once lived in the tropics. To avoid the cold, it lives in caves warmed by geothermal heat.
