Minior

Minior is a Rock/Flying type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Meteor Pokémon.

Minior are formed in the stratosphere and live by absorbing the detritus around them. When they’ve consumed a large quantity of particles, their bodies become heavy, and they fall toward the planet’s surface. Minior has a hard and heavy outer shell with a core inside it.

When its shell breaks, the core in its center is revealed, which can be different colors.

Evolution chart

Pokédex entries

Meteor Form

Sun Originally making its home in the ozone layer, it hurtles to the ground when the shell enclosing its body grows too heavy.
Moon Strong impacts can knock it out of its shell. This Pokémon was born from mutated nanoparticles.
Ultra Sun It lives in the ozone layer, where it becomes food for stronger Pokémon. When it tries to run away, it falls to the ground.
Ultra Moon Although its outer shell is uncommonly durable, the shock of falling to the ground smashes the shell to smithereens.

Core Form

Sun It eats dust in the atmosphere. The composition of the dust determines the color of its core.
Moon If its core stays exposed, it will soon die off. It’s possible that it may survive if it’s put into a Poké Ball quickly enough.
Ultra Sun Places where Minior fall from the night sky are few and far between, with Alola being one of the precious few.
Ultra Moon This is its form when its shell has fallen off. The color of its core depends on the materials that made up the food it ate.
