Sun It will use any means necessary to frighten people and absorb their life energy. It practices constantly to hone its skill in causing fear.
Moon If you hear a sobbing sound emanating from a vacant room, it’s undoubtedly a bit of mischief from Misdreavus.
Ultra Sun What gives meaning to its life is surprising others. If you set your ear against the red orbs around its neck, you can hear shrieking.
Ultra Moon What makes it happy is imitating the voices of weeping people and scaring everyone. It doesn’t deal well with folks who aren’t easily frightened.
