Skrelp

X
Omega Ruby
Camouflaged as rotten kelp, they spray liquid poison on prey that approaches unawares and then finish it off.
Y
Alpha Sapphire
It looks just like rotten kelp. It hides from foes while storing up power for its evolution.
Ultra Sun It vanishes into seaweed and remains perfectly still to avoid attacks from large Pokémon. Rotten seaweed is its main food source.
Ultra Moon It’s not good at swimming, so it clings to the seaweed. In the Alola region, it’s often found near Dhelmise.
