Moon Thanks to the special membrane covering its eyes, it can see its surroundings clearly, even in the middle of the night.
Ultra Sun Krokorok really hates it when its body gets cold. On nights when the temperature drops, it digs deep into the desert sands.
Ultra Moon It buries some of its prey in the sand to use as emergency meals when its hunts are unsuccessful.
Sword Krokorok has specialized eyes that enable it to see in the dark. This ability lets Krokorok hunt in the dead of night without getting lost.
Shield Although this Pokémon has specialized eyes that allow it to see in the dark, Krokorok won’t move much at night—the desert gets cold after sunset.
