Pokédex entries

Omega Ruby
The weakest Dragon-type Pokémon, it lives in damp, shady places, so its body doesn’t dry out.
Alpha Sapphire
It’s covered in a slimy membrane that makes any punches or kicks slide off it harmlessly.
Sun The weakest of all Dragon-type Pokémon, it’s unable to breathe if its skin dries out, so it sticks to shady places.
Moon Its source of protection is its slimy, germ-laden mucous membrane. Anyone who touches it needs some thorough hand-washing.
Ultra Sun It uses its horns to check out its surroundings. They’re very sensitive, so if you grab them, it will feel a strong shock and be unable to move.
Ultra Moon Its body is mostly water. If it dries out, it will die, so it’s always sitting with perfect stillness in the shade.
Sword Because most of its body is water, it will dry up if the weather becomes too arid. It’s considered the weakest dragon Pokémon.
Shield Their horns are powerful sensors. As soon as Goomy pick up any sign of enemies, they go into hiding. This is how they’ve survived.
Legends: Arceus Goomy hides away in the shade of trees, where it’s nice and humid. If the slime coating its body dries out, the Pokémon instantly becomes lethargic.
Scarlet Most of a Goomy’s body is water. A membrane covers the whole Pokémon to prevent it from shriveling up in dry weather.
Violet Goomy’s horns are excellent sensory organs that cover all five of Goomy’s senses. Goomy picks up on danger from the movement of the air.
