Flavor Text

Generation 5
Black, White

At dusk, swarms of them are carried aloft on winds. When noticed, they suddenly vanish.

Black 2, White 2

They carry people and Pokémon, but the wind can catch them, so there can’t be a fixed destination.

Generation 6
X

It carries people and Pokémon when it flies. But since it only drifts, it can end up anywhere.

Y

It’s drowsy in daytime, but flies off in the evening in big groups. No one knows where they go.
