Pokédex Entries for Arrokuda

Generation 8 Pokédex Entries

Sword
If it sees any movement around it, this Pokémon charges for it straightaway, leading with its sharply pointed jaw. It's very proud of that jaw.
Shield
After it's eaten its fill, its movements become extremely sluggish. That's when Cramorant swallows it up.
