Pokédex entries

Sun Forests where Shiinotic live are treacherous to enter at night. People confused by its strange lights can never find their way home again.
Moon It emits flickering spores that cause drowsiness. When its prey succumb to sleep, this Pokémon feeds on them by sucking in their energy.
Ultra Sun It puts its prey to sleep and siphons off their vitality through the tip of its arms. If one of its kind is weakened, it helps by sending it vitality.
Ultra Moon When it starts fighting for territory with Parasect, the entire area gets completely coated in spores!
Sword Its flickering spores lure in prey and put them to sleep. Once this Pokémon has its prey snoozing, it drains their vitality with its fingertips.
Shield If you see a light deep in a forest at night, don’t go near. Shiinotic will make you fall fast asleep.
