Pokédex Entries for Morpeko

Generation 8 Pokédex Entries

Full-Belly Mode

Sword
As it eats the seeds stored up in its pocket-like pouches, this Pokémon is not just satisfying its constant hunger. It's also generating electricity.
Shield
It carries electrically roasted seeds with it as if they're precious treasures. No matter how much it eats, it always gets hungry again in short order.

Hangry Mode

Sword
Intense hunger drives it to extremes of violence, and the electricity in its cheek sacs has converted into a Dark-type energy.
Shield
Hunger hormones affect its temperament. Until its hunger is appeased, it gets up to all manner of evil deeds.
