Pokédex entries

Sun It rolls up pollen into puffs. It makes many different varieties, some used as food and others used in battle.
Moon Some of Ribombee’s pollen puffs are highly nutritious. They are sometimes sold as supplements.
Ultra Sun Rain makes pollen damp, so Ribombee hates rain. When it sees ominous clouds, it finds a hollow in a tree, where it waits stock-still.
Ultra Moon It can predict the weather from moisture levels and wind direction. Ribombee only reveals itself when there are a few clear days in a row.
