Pokédex entries

Sliggoo

X
Omega Ruby
It drives away opponents by excreting a sticky liquid that can dissolve anything. Its eyes devolved, so it can’t see anything.
Y
Alpha Sapphire
Its four horns are a high-performance radar system. It uses them to sense sounds and smells, rather than using ears or a nose.
Sun It has trouble drawing a line between friends and food. It will calmly try to melt and eat even those it gets along well with.
Moon This Pokémon’s mucous can dissolve anything. Toothless, it sprays mucous on its prey. Once they’re nicely dissolved, it slurps them up.
Ultra Sun It crawls along sluggishly. The swirly protrusion on its back is filled with its brain and other organs.
Ultra Moon Its entire body is covered with gooey mucus that can dissolve anything. Be sure to put gloves on if you’re going to touch it.
Sword Although this Pokémon isn’t very strong, its body is coated in a caustic slime that can melt through anything, so predators steer clear of it.
Shield The lump on its back contains its tiny brain. It thinks only of food and escaping its enemies.
Scarlet The swirly protrusion on its back is filled with all its vital organs, such as its brain and heart.
Violet When Sliggoo senses danger, the mucus coating its entire body becomes more concentrated—it’ll dissolve anything.

Hisuian Sliggoo

Legends: Arceus A creature given to melancholy. I suspect its metallic shell developed as a result of the mucus on its skin reacting with the iron in Hisui’s water.
