Oranguru

Oranguru is a Normal/Psychic type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Sage Pokémon.

Oranguru live solitary lives deep in the forests and do not usually take much action. Instead, they position themselves high up in the trees to meditate. Long ago, people thought that Oranguru were humans who dwelled in the forest depths, so they called them the people of the forests. Oranguru is kind to the other Pokémon living in the forest, providing medicine for injured Pokémon and food for the hungry.

The fan-like objects held by Oranguru are handmade by the Oranguru themselves. These fans appear to be made of layers of leaves bound together with Oranguru's own fur.

Pokédex entries

Sun Known for its extreme intelligence, this Pokémon will look down on inexperienced Trainers, so it’s best suited to veteran Trainers.
Moon Deep in the jungle, high in the lofty canopy, this Pokémon abides. On rare occasions, it shows up at the beach to match wits with Slowking.
Ultra Sun It normally spends its time meditating in the treetops. It throws Poké Balls and gives other Pokémon orders as it pleases.
Ultra Moon Oranguru don’t get along with each other, so they’re always engaging in battles of wits to decide which one is superior.
Sword With waves of its fan—made from leaves and its own fur—Oranguru skillfully gives instructions to other Pokémon.
Shield It knows the forest inside and out. If it comes across a wounded Pokémon, Oranguru will gather medicinal herbs to treat it.
Scarlet People used to mistake Oranguru for a human when they saw it issue command after command to the other Pokémon of the forest.
Violet This Pokémon lives quietly in the depths of the forest. The purple, cape-like fur gets longer and longer as Oranguru ages.
