Pokédex entries

Sun Its quick movements confuse its enemies. Well equipped with claws and fangs, it also uses the sharp rocks in its mane as weapons.
Moon When properly raised from a young age, it will become a trustworthy partner that will absolutely never betray its Trainer.
Ultra Sun The sharp rocks in its mane can cut like knives. Lycanroc wears its prey down by degrees before finishing them off.
Ultra Moon The rocks in its mane are sharper than a knife. Fragments that break off are treasured as good luck charms.
