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.

Pokédex entries

Sun This wary Pokémon uses photosynthesis to store up energy during the day, while becoming active at night.
Moon Silently it glides, drawing near its targets. Before they even notice it, it begins to pelt them with vicious kicks.
Ultra Sun It sends its feathers, which are as sharp as blades, flying in attack. Its legs are strong, so its kicks are also formidable.
Ultra Moon It feels relaxed in tight, dark places and has been known to use its Trainer’s pocket or bag as a nest.
Sword At a distance, it launches its sharp feathers while flying about. If the enemy gets too close, Rowlet switches tactics and delivers vicious kicks.
Shield During the day, it builds up energy via photosynthesis. At night, it flies silently through the sky, on the prowl for prey.
Legends: Arceus Flies noiselessly on delicate wings. It has mastered the art of deftly launching dagger-sharp feathers from those same wings.
