Flavor Info

Pokédex Entries

Travelers in Krtuso sometimes report flickering, dancing lights moving over the flatlands at night. These lights are actually Virlich trying to capture their attention and cause mischief.


Several folktales state that Virlich perform their enticing nighttime dances to lead travelers astray, but others believe that these Pokémon are simply looking for someone to play with.
