Morpeko

Morpeko is an Electric/Dark type Pokémon introduced in Generation 8. It is known as the Two-Sided Pokémon.

Morpeko constantly generates electricity with the sacs in its cheeks. This consumes energy, causing Morpeko to be constantly hungry. When experiencing prolonged hunger, the balance of hormones within Morpeko’s body changes. This causes its fur colour to change and triggers more aggressive and volatile behaviour.

Evolution chart

Pokédex entries

Full Belly Mode

Sword As it eats the seeds stored up in its pocket-like pouches, this Pokémon is not just satisfying its constant hunger. It’s also generating electricity.
Shield It carries electrically roasted seeds with it as if they’re precious treasures. No matter how much it eats, it always gets hungry again in short order.

Hangry Mode

Sword Intense hunger drives it to extremes of violence, and the electricity in its cheek sacs has converted into a Dark-type energy.
Shield Hunger hormones affect its temperament. Until its hunger is appeased, it gets up to all manner of evil deeds.
