Wimpod

Wimpod is a Bug/Water type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Turn Tail Pokémon.

Wimpod have a cowardly nature and are wary of noises and sudden movements. If you approach them in a group, they’ll immediately run off. When Wimpod feel threatened, they spit out a poisonous liquid. The stench of this toxic fluid signals others that danger is near. Despite their extreme cowardice, their curiosity leads Wimpod to approach people or Pokémon that are standing still.

Wimpod eat and store anything that they find fallen on the ground. They also scavenge any garbage that’s been dropped in the sea, so they’re highly valued as cleaners. They sometimes carry pearls or other valuable items, so humans or Pokémon like Murkrow may target them.

Pokédex entries

Sun This Pokémon is a coward. As it desperately dashes off, the flailing of its many legs leaves a sparkling clean path in its wake.
Moon Its habitat varies from beaches to seabeds. A natural scavenger, it will gleefully chow down on anything edible, no matter how rotten.
Ultra Sun It will pick up anything it finds on the ground. Sometimes it finds coins, so Murkrow and Meowth will go after it.
Ultra Moon An astonishingly cowardly Pokémon, Wimpod will whir its legs at high speeds to run away if anything comes near it.
Sword It’s nature’s cleaner—it eats anything and everything, including garbage and rotten things. The ground near its nest is always clean.
Shield Wimpod gather in swarms, constantly on the lookout for danger. They scatter the moment they detect an enemy’s presence.
