Their wings are too tiny to allow them to fly. They guard their posteriors with bones that were gathered by Mandibuzz.
Sun It protects its plump posterior with the bones of prey it has consumed. As it grows, it replaces the bones.
Moon It can’t fly yet and must wait until its wings have developed more. Since it’s still at a playful age, it hops around friskily.
Ultra Sun Mandibuzz gives it the bones it wears. Vullaby’s wings are short, so it can’t fly yet, but it jumps around, dreaming of wide open skies.
Ultra Moon Its healthy appetite leads to visible growth spurts. It often has to replace the bones it wears as its size increases.
Sword It wears a bone to protect its rear. It often squabbles with others of its kind over particularly comfy bones.
Shield Vullaby grow quickly. Bones that have gotten too small for older Vullaby to wear often get passed down to younger ones in the nest.
