Flavor Text
Sun It can discern the physical and emotional states of people, Pokémon, and other natural things from the shape of their aura waves.
Moon It’s tough enough to run right through the night, and it’s also a hard worker, but it’s still just a youngster.
Ultra Sun It knows how people and Pokémon feel by looking at their auras. It doesn’t approach dangerous opponents.
Ultra Moon It uses waves called auras to communicate with others of its kind. It doesn’t make any noise during this time, so its enemies can’t detect it.
