Pyukumuku

Pyukumuku is a Water type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Sea Cucumber Pokémon.

Due to their appearance and their lifestyle, Pyukumuku are considered unappealing to tourists. Part-time work chucking Pyukumuku back into the sea is available at tourist beaches. But no matter how far they’re thrown, Pyukumuku will always return to the same spot.

Pyukumuku hate to have their spikes and mouths touched, and if you step on one, it will hurl out its fist-like inner organs to strike at you.

Evolution chart

Pokédex entries

Sun It lives in shallow seas, such as areas near a beach. It can eject its internal organs, which it uses to engulf its prey or battle enemies.
Moon These Pokémon line the beaches. The sticky mucous that covers their bodies can be used to soothe sunburned skin. How convenient!
Ultra Sun The tradition known as Pyukumuku chucking started from the custom of throwing Pyukumuku back into the sea after they wash onshore.
Ultra Moon Its entire body is covered in its own slime. If you accidentally step on one, you’ll slip, and it will get mad and smack you!
Sword It lives in warm, shallow waters. If it encounters a foe, it will spit out its internal organs as a means to punch them.
Shield It’s covered in a slime that keeps its skin moist, allowing it to stay on land for days without drying up.
