Sun Although the leaves on its head are bitter enough to cause dizziness, they provide relief from weariness—even more so when boiled.
Moon By pruning the leaves on its head with regularity, this Pokémon can be grown into a fine plump shape.
Ultra Sun Some say if you dry the leaves on its head, boil them down, and drink the infusion, your vigor will return, so Petilil is popular with the elderly.
Ultra Moon They prefer clean water and soil. When the environment they live in turns bad, the whole bunch will up and move to a new area.
