Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the fifth generation. They charge wildly and headbutt everything. Their headbutts have enough destructive force to derail a train. Their fluffy fur absorbs damage, even if they strike foes with a fierce headbutt. They are known to charge so wildly that if a trainer were to enter their territory, they would send it flying. So here it is, the thirty-fifth entry, Bouffalant.

Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the second generation. It is timid in spite of its looks. If it becomes enraged, however, it will strike with its huge fangs. It can make most any Pokémon run away simply by opening its mouth wide to reveal its big fangs. It is actually timid and easily spooked. If attacked, it flails about to fend off its attacker. Because its fangs are too heavy, it always keeps its head tilted down. However, its bite is powerful. So here it is, the thirty-second entry, Granbull.
