Omega Ruby When its eyes gleam gold, it can spot hiding prey—even those taking shelter behind a wall.
Sword Luxray can see through solid objects. It will instantly spot prey trying to hide behind walls, even if the walls are thick.
Shield Seeing through solid objects uses up a lot of Luxray’s electricity, so the Pokémon sleeps for long periods of time to store up energy.
