Pokédex entries

Gold When the stars flicker in the night sky, it flutters about, scattering a glowing powder.
Silver The star patterns on its back grow larger or smaller depending on the number of stars in the night sky.
Crystal In the daytime when it gets warm, it curls up inside a big leaf and drifts off into a deep slumber.
Ruby
Sapphire
It is said that in lands with clean air, where the stars fill the sky, there live LEDIAN in countless numbers. There is a good reason for this - the POKéMON uses the light of the stars as its energy.
FireRed The star patterns on its back grow larger or smaller depending on the number of stars in the night sky.
LeafGreen When the stars flicker in the night sky, it flutters about, scattering a glowing powder.
Emerald It is said that in lands with clean air, where the stars fill the sky, there live many LEDIAN. For good reason, they use the light of the stars as energy.
Diamond

It is said that in lands with clean air, where the stars fill the sky, there live Ledian in countless numbers. There is a good reason for this—the Pokémon uses the light of the stars as its energy.
Sun While it’s believed that starlight provides it with energy, this Pokémon also loves to eat berries. In the daytime, it curls up in the grass to sleep.
Moon In battle, it throws punches with all four arms. The power of each individual blow is piddly, so it aims to win by quantity rather than quality.
Ultra Sun It’s said that the patterns on its back are related to the stars in the night sky, but the details of that relationship remain unclear.
Ultra Moon It flies through the night sky, sprinkling sparkly dust. According to some, if that dust sticks to you, good things will happen to you.
