Morelull

Morelull is a Grass/Fairy type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Illuminating Pokémon.

Morelull are nocturnal Pokémon that walk around at night on their leg-like roots. They move because staying in one spot and sucking all the nutrients from the soil would cause surrounding plants to wither. Morelull uses its roots to make contact with its fellows and communicate with them.

Pokédex entries

Sun It scatters spores that flicker and glow. Anyone seeing these lights falls into a deep slumber.
Moon As it drowses the day away, it nourishes itself by sucking from tree roots. It wakens at the fall of night, wandering off in search of a new tree.
Ultra Sun It scatters its shining spores around itself. Even though they’re dangerous, nighttime tours of forests where Morelull live are popular.
Ultra Moon It likes damp dark places. When night falls, the spores filling the caps of its mushrooms glow.
Sword Pokémon living in the forest eat the delicious caps on Morelull’s head. The caps regrow overnight.
Shield Morelull live in forests that stay dark even during the day. They scatter flickering spores that put enemies to sleep.
