Sun Its dense black fur grows continuously. The high cost of keeping its hard fur properly groomed makes this a troublesome Pokémon to train.
Moon This Pokémon obeys its master’s orders faithfully. However, it refuses to listen to anything said by a person it doesn’t respect.
Ultra Sun The longer its black fur grows, the harder and more impervious it gets. Claws and fangs can’t easily penetrate it.
Ultra Moon It has been living with people for so long that portrayals of it can be found on the walls of caves from long, long ago.
