Lunala

Lunala is a Psychic/Ghost type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Moone Pokémon.

Since ancient times, Lunala has been honored as an emissary of the moon. It is referred to with reverence as the beast that calls the moon. Lunala is constantly absorbing light and converting it into energy. With its wings spread to absorb the surrounding light and glittering like a crescent moon, it resembles a beautiful night sky.

It has a powerful signature move, Moongeist Beam. When it releases its mighty power it takes on a new appearance known as the Full Moon phase.
