Sapphire SHARPEDO can swim at speeds of up to 75 mph by jetting seawater out of its backside. This POKéMON’s drawback is its inability to swim long distances.

Sun It pursues its prey at speeds of 75 mph and finishes them off with fangs that can crush iron. It is known as the bully of the sea.
Moon It has a sad history. In the past, its dorsal fin was a treasured foodstuff, so this Pokémon became a victim of overfishing.
Ultra Sun People believe that carrying one of its discarded fangs will prevent mishaps at sea, so the fangs are made into accessories.
Ultra Moon It drinks in seawater and jets it from its rear to propel itself. It’s very sensitive to the scent of blood.

Mega Sharpedo

Sun The spines sprouting from its head are transformed fangs. If they’re injured or broken off, the spines will regenerate countless times.
Moon As a consequence of Mega Evolution, its combative instincts exploded. The yellow marks it bears are scars from a long history of battles.
Ultra Sun The yellow patterns it bears are old scars. The energy from Mega Evolution runs through them, causing it sharp pain and suffering.
Ultra Moon The moment it charges into its opponent, sharp spikes pop out of Sharpedo’s head, leaving its opponent with deep wounds.
