Rowlet

Rowlet is a Grass/Flying type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Grass Quill Pokémon.

Rowlet can fly silently through the skies, sneaking up on its opponent without being noticed. It can attack its opponents using powerful kicks, and it can also attack from a distance using the razor-sharp leaves that form part of its feathers.

Rowlet can survey its environment and turn its neck nearly 180 degrees from front to back, so it can see directly behind itself. When in battle, Rowlet turns its head to face its Trainer when waiting for instructions.

Rowlet starts with the move Leafage.
