Sun In order to create a more advanced Pokémon, an additional program was installed, but apparently it contained a defect that makes it move oddly.
Moon Its program was modified to facilitate extra-dimensional activities, but that led to noticeably strange behavior.
Ultra Sun Its behavior is noticeably unstable, which is apparently due to the incompetence of the engineer who updated its programming.
Ultra Moon A faulty update was added to its programming. Its behavior is noticeably strange, so the experiment may have been a failure.
