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.
Sword Petilil appears around sources of clean water. Boiling leaves from this Pokémon’s head results in a liquid that’s sometimes used as a bug repellent.
Shield The deeper the color of a Petilil’s leaves, the healthier the Pokémon is. Petilil sometimes makes its home in a well-tended field or flowerbed.
Legends: Arceus The leaves on its head are highly valued for medicinal purposes. Dry the leaves in the sun, boil them, and then drink the bitter decoction for remarkably effective relief from fatigue.
Scarlet The leaves on its head grow right back even if they fall out. These bitter leaves refresh those who eat them.
Violet If the leaves on its head are pruned with regularity, this Pokémon can be grown into a fine plump shape.
