Togedemaru

Togedemaru is an Electric/Steel type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Roly-Poly Pokémon.

Togedemaru gathers electricity and stores it. The long needle that grows from the back of its head works as a lightning rod to attract electricity.

Covering its body is a pattern of fur with strands like needles. On days when lightning strikes, you can sometimes see Togedemaru gather and bristle up their needles, waiting to be struck by lightning.

Pokédex entries

Sun The spiny fur on its back is normally at rest. When this Pokémon becomes agitated, its fur stands on end and stabs into its attackers.
Moon The long hairs on its back act as lightning rods. The bolts of lightning it attracts are stored as energy in its electric sac.
Ultra Sun When it’s surprised or agitated, the 14 fur spikes on its back will stand up involuntarily.
Ultra Moon Its capacity to produce electricity is somewhat limited, so it gets charged up by letting lightning strike it!
Sword With the long hairs on its back, this Pokémon takes in electricity from other electric Pokémon. It stores what it absorbs in an electric sac.
Shield When it’s in trouble, it curls up into a ball, makes its fur spikes stand on end, and then discharges electricity indiscriminately.
