Diamond
Pearl
Just like a plant, it uses photosynthesis. As a result, it is always enveloped in clear air.
Platinum It basically does not fight. With cells similar to those of plants, it can perform photosynthesis.

When you see Leafeon asleep in a patch of sunshine, you’ll know it is using photosynthesis to produce clean air.
Y
Alpha Sapphire
Just like a plant, it uses photosynthesis. As a result, it is always enveloped in clear air.
Sun Its cellular composition is closer to that of a plant than an animal. It uses photosynthesis to produce its energy supply without eating food.
Moon The younger they are, the more they smell like fresh grass. With age, their fragrance takes on the odor of fallen leaves.
Ultra Sun Although it doesn’t like disputes, it will sharpen the leaf on its tail into a blade and fight if it has to protect its friends.
Ultra Moon It gets its nutrition from photosynthesis. It lives a quiet life deep in forests where clean rivers flow.
Sword Galarians favor the distinctive aroma that drifts from this Pokémon’s leaves. There’s a popular perfume made using that scent.
Shield This Pokémon’s tail is blade sharp, with a fantastic cutting edge that can slice right though large trees.
