RubySLAKOTH lolls around for over twenty hours every day. Because it moves so little, it does not need much food. This Pokemon's sole daily meal consists of just three leaves.
SapphireSLAKOTH's heart beats just once a minute. Whatever happens, it is content to loaf around motionless. It is rare to see this Pokemon in motion.
EmeraldIt sleeps virtually all day and night long. It doesn't change its nest its entire life, but it sometimes travels great distances by swimming in rivers.
