Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the seventh generation. It eats dust in the atmosphere. The composition of the dust determines the color of its core. If its core stays exposed, it will soon die off. It's possible that it may survive if it's put into a Poké Ball quickly enough. Places where Minior fall from the night sky are few and far between, with Alola being one of the precious few. It lives in the ozone layer, where it becomes food for stronger Pokémon. When it tries to run away, it falls to the ground. Although its outer shell is uncommonly durable, the shock of falling to the ground smashes the shell to smithereens. So, here it is, the one-hundred & twenty-first entry, Minior
