Pokédex Entries for Ribombee

Generation 8 Pokédex Entries

Sword
It makes pollen puffs from pollen and nectar. The puffs' effects depend on the type of ingredients and how much of each one is used.
Shield
Ribombee absolutely hate getting wet or rained on. In the cloudy Galar region, they are very seldom seen.

Generation 7 Pokédex Entries

Sun
It rolls up pollen into puffs. It makes many different varieties, some used as food and others used in battle.
Moon
Some of Ribombee's pollen puffs are highly nutritious. They are sometimes sold as supplements.
Ultra Sun
Rain makes pollen damp, so Ribombee hates rain. When it sees ominous clouds, it finds a hollow in a tree, where it waits stock-still.
Ultra Moon
It can predict the weather from moisture levels and wind direction. Ribombee only reveals itself when there are a few clear days in a row.
