Generation 8 Pokédex Entries

Sword
Though Espurr's expression never changes, behind that blank stare is an intense struggle to contain its devastating psychic power.

There's enough psychic power in Espurr to send a wrestler flying, but because this power can't be controlled, Espurr finds it troublesome.

X Omega Ruby
The organ that emits its intense psychic power is sheltered by its ears to keep power from leaking out.
Y Alpha Sapphire
It has enough psychic energy to blast everything within 300 feet of itself, but it has no control over its power.
