These Pokémon prefer a tidy habitat. They are always sweeping and dusting, using their tails as brooms.
Ultra Sun A clean freak that will not allow even the slightest mess, it uses its tail like a mop to thoroughly clean any and all filth.
Ultra Moon When its tail has gotten dirty from self-cleaning or from cleaning its nest, Minccino spends a whole day washing its tail in clean spring water.
Sword The way it brushes away grime with its tail can be helpful when cleaning. But its focus on spotlessness can make cleaning more of a hassle.
Shield They pet each other with their tails as a form of greeting. Of the two, the one whose tail is fluffier is a bit more boastful.
