It’s always hungry, no matter how much it eats
Morpeko constantly generates electricity with the sacs in its cheeks. This consumes energy, causing Morpeko to be constantly hungry. This is why Morpeko is always carrying around Berry seeds, protecting them with care. They serve as a snack!
Its appearance changes when it gets hungry
When experiencing prolonged hunger, the balance of hormones within Morpeko’s body changes. This causes its fur colour to change and triggers more aggressive and volatile behaviour. The energy stored in its cheek sacs also changes from Electric type to Dark type.
Its Ability, Hunger Switch, allows it to change forms
Morpeko’s Ability, Hunger Switch, is a new Ability introduced in these titles. This Ability causes Morpeko to change its appearance each turn. Morpeko’s signature move, Aura Wheel, changes type depending on Morpeko’s form. In Full Belly Mode, the move is Electric type, while in Hangry Mode, the move becomes Dark type!
