Klefki

Klefki is a Steel/Fairy type Pokémon introduced in Generation 6. It is known as the Key Ring Pokémon.

Klefki never lets go of a key that it likes, so people give it the keys to vaults and safes as a way to prevent crime.

These key collectors threaten any attackers by fiercely jingling their keys at them.

Sun This even-tempered Pokémon has a habit of collecting keys. It will sneak into people’s homes to steal their keys.
Moon It inserts its horn into chinks in metal, absorbing metal ions. For some reason, it collects keys.
Ultra Sun Although it’s unclear why it collects keys, giving it a key makes Klefki very happy. However, it apparently only likes master keys.
Ultra Moon Long ago it lived in mines, but once the minerals that make up its diet became scarcer, Klefki began appearing in human settlements.
Sword This Pokémon is constantly collecting keys. Entrust a Klefki with important keys, and the Pokémon will protect them no matter what.
Shield Klefki sucks in metal ions with the horn topping its head. It seems this Pokémon loves keys so much that its head needed to look like one, too.
