Ultra Moon Mantyke are friendly toward people and will approach boats closely. The patterns on their backs differ depending on their habitat.
Sword Mantyke living in Galar seem to be somewhat sluggish. The colder waters of the seas in this region may be the cause.
Shield It swims along with a school of Remoraid, and they’ll all fight together to repel attackers.

Shining Pearl Scientists discovered that the distinctive patterns on its back differ by region.
