~ Decidueye's Pokédex entry from Pokémon Sun
Decidueye is a Grass/Ghost-type Pokémon from the Alola region. It is the final evolution of Rowlet, the Grass-type starter Pokémon of that region.
Decidueye is the Arrow Quill Pokémon, and the final evolutionary stage of Rowlet, preceeded by Dartrix. It is a cool and cautious Pokémon, though it's quickly seized by panic when surprised. Using its bow-like wings, Decidueye can draw back its quills and fire them as arrows at its targets.
Powers & Abilities
Stealth Skills: Decidueye is capable of moving in near-perfect stealth. Once the enemy has lost sight of it, Decidueye attacks the enemy before it notices.
Archery Skills: Decidueye is capable of firing its feathers as arrows. He can throw a single arrow in a tenth of a second, and these arrows can pierce targets from over half a mile away (800 metres).
Overgrow: Decidueye's ability. It increases the power of Grass-type attacks by 50% when Decidueye's health is low.
Long Reach: Decidueye's hidden ability. It allows him to attack foes with direct-contact moves without suffering any side effects from their abilities.
Spirit Shackle: Decidueye's signature move. Decidueye shoots an arrow that pins the enemy's shadow to the ground, and then explodes. This attack impedes the enemy's escape.
U-Turn: Bug-type attack that consists of the user charging at the enemy, and then return to its Pokéball (if it is a trainer's Pokémon).
Tackle: A weak attack that consists of the user charging at the enemy.
Leafage: The user attacks by pelting the target with leaves.
Growl: The user growls in an endearing way, making opposing Pokémon less wary. This lowers their Attack stat.
Peck: Decidueye jabs at the enemy with its beak.
Astonish: The user attacks the target while shouting in a startling fashion. This may also make the target flinch.
Razor Leaf: Sharp-edged leaves are launched to slash at the opposing Pokémon. Critical hits land more easily.
Foresight: This move allows Decidueye to hit Ghost-type Pokémon with Normal and Fighting-type moves.
Pluck: The user pecks the target. If the target is holding a Berry, the user eats it and gains its effect.
Synthesis: Decidueye absorbs light from the sun to heal himself. It will recover more health if the weather is sunny.
Fury Attack: Decidueye attacks the enemy with its beak multiple times.
Sucker Punch: This move enables the user to attack first. This move fails if the target is not readying an attack.
Leaf Blade: The user handles a sharp leaf like a sword and attacks by cutting its target. Critical hits land more easily.
Feather Dance: The user covers the target's body with a mass of down that harshly lowers its Attack stat.
Brave Bird: The user tucks in its wings and charges from a low altitude. This also damages the user quite a lot.
Nasty Plot: The user stimulates its brain by thinking bad thoughts. This sharply raises the user's Special Atack stat.
