Title Entry
Pokémon Sun Disguised - Its actual appearance is unknown. A scholar who saw what was under its rag was overwhelmed by terror and died from the shock.
Busted - After going to all the effort of disguising itself, its neck was broken. Whatever is inside is probably unharmed, but it’s still feeling sad.
Pokémon Moon Disguised - A lonely Pokémon, it conceals its terrifying appearance beneath an old rag so it can get closer to people and other Pokémon.
Busted - If its neck is broken or its rag torn during an attack, it works through the night to patch it.
