Sylveon changes

Pokédex entries

X
Omega Ruby
It sends a soothing aura from its ribbonlike feelers to calm fights.
Y
Alpha Sapphire
It wraps its ribbonlike feelers around the arm of its beloved Trainer and walks with him or her.
Sun Its ribbonlike feelers give off an aura that weakens hostility in its prey, causing them to let down their guard. Then it attacks.
Moon When this Pokémon sights its prey, it swirls its ribbonlike feelers as a distraction. A moment later, it pounces.
Ultra Sun Once a fight breaks out, it will unflinchingly charge at dragon Pokémon that are many times larger than itself.
Ultra Moon Sylveon wraps its ribbonlike feelers around its Trainer’s arm because this touch enables it to read its Trainer’s feelings.
Sword By releasing enmity-erasing waves from its ribbonlike feelers, Sylveon stops any conflict.
Shield There’s a Galarian fairy tale that describes a beautiful Sylveon vanquishing a dreadful dragon Pokémon.
