Pokédex entries

Black Its skin has a rubbery elasticity, so it can reduce damage by defensively pulling its skin up to its neck.
White It immediately headbutts anyone that makes eye contact with it. Its skull is massively thick.

Proud of its sturdy skull, it suddenly headbutts everything, but its weight makes it unstable, too.

Ultra Sun They move in small groups, walking around lazily. Anyone who makes eye contact gets smacked with a headbutt.
Ultra Moon It stretches its saggy skin up to its neck to protect itself. The saggier their skin, the more respect they garner.
Sword If it locks eyes with you, watch out! Nothing and no one is safe from the reckless headbutts of this troublesome Pokémon.
Shield It protects itself with its durable skin. It’s thought that this Pokémon will evolve once its skin has completely stretched out.
