Natu changes

Pokédex entries

Gold Because its wings aren't yet fully grown, it has to hop to get around. It is always staring at something.
Silver It usually forages for food on the ground but may, on rare occasions, hop onto branches to peck at shoots.
Crystal It is extremely good at climbing tree trunks and likes to eat the new sprouts on the trees.
Ruby NATU cannot fly because its wings are not yet fully grown. If your eyes meet with this POKéMON’s eyes, it will stare back intently at you. But if you move even slightly, it will hop away to safety.
Sapphire NATU has a highly developed jumping ability. The POKéMON flaps and leaps onto tree branches that are taller than grown-up people to pick at the tree’s new shoots.
FireRed It usually forages for food on the ground but may, on rare occasions, hop onto branches to peck at shoots.
LeafGreen Because its wings aren’t yet fully grown, it has to hop to get around. It is always staring at something.
Emerald It runs up short trees that grow on the savanna to peck at new shoots. A NATU’s eyes look as if they are always observing something.
Diamond

Omega Ruby Natu cannot fly because its wings are not yet fully grown. If your eyes meet with this Pokémon’s eyes, it will stare back intently at you. But if you move even slightly, it will hop away to safety.
Alpha Sapphire Natu has a highly developed jumping ability. The Pokémon flaps and leaps onto tree branches that are taller than grown-up people to pick at the tree’s new shoots.
Ultra Sun Although it still can’t fly, its jumping power is outstanding. It jumps way up into trees and plucks the buds from the branches.
Ultra Moon The look in its eyes gives the impression that it’s carefully observing you. If you approach it, Natu will hop away.
