Pokédex Entries for Pyukumuku

Generation 8 Pokédex Entries

Sword
It lives in warm, shallow waters. If it encounters a foe, it will spit out its internal organs as a means to punch them.
Shield
It's covered in a slime that keeps its skin moist, allowing it to stay on land for days without drying up.

Generation 7 Pokédex Entries

Sun
It lives in shallow seas, such as areas near a beach. It can eject its internal organs, which it uses to engulf its prey or battle enemies.
Moon
These Pokémon line the beaches. The sticky mucous that covers their bodies can be used to soothe sunburned skin. How convenient!
Ultra Sun
The tradition known as Pyukumuku chucking started from the custom of throwing Pyukumuku back into the sea after they wash onshore.
Ultra Moon
Its entire body is covered in its own slime. If you accidentally step on one, you'll slip, and it will get mad and smack you!
