Tapu Bulu

Tapu Bulu is a Grass/Fairy type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Land Spirit Pokémon.

Tapu Bulu has the power to manipulate vegetation and cause it to grow. It can use this power on its own horns - which are made of wood - changing their shape or making them larger. This can come in handy in battle!

This stolid Pokémon is not very active. People’s opinions differ on whether it’s as docile as it seems, or if the reason it doesn’t move much can be chalked up to simple laziness.
