Pikipek

Pikipek is a Normal/Flying type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Woodpecker Pokémon.

Pikipek can strike 16 times a second with its beak. These strikes are powerful enough to not only drill through hard wood but even shatter stone. Pikipek will attack distant opponents by zipping seeds at them. These shots have enough strength to embed the seeds in tree trunks.

Ultra Sun It pecks at trees with its hard beak. You can get some idea of its mood or condition from the rhythm of its pecking.
