One of the more dazzling Pokemon introduced in Pokemon Sun and Moon, Fomantis and Lurantis.
Lurantis both looks and smells like a flower, a trait that it uses to exploit and lure in foes so it can spring a surprise attack. Its brilliant coloration and elegant moves earn it acclaim as the most gorgeous Grass-type Pokémon.
I don't know about all of that, but I would put Roserade up against mon. Grass Pokemon have always been my favorite type and I must admit that Alola has some of the best ones yet. Now Fomantis and Lurantis are Orchid Mantis, beautiful pink and white mantis with lobes on its legs that look like flower petals. Oh yeah Lurantis looks just like this.
An elusive species of praying mantis, the orchid mantis stalks the rainforests of Southeast Asia and Indonesia in solitude.
The orchid mantis is white with soft or bright pink accents. Some individuals are completely white, others completely pink. One mantis can change color in a matter of days, depending on the environmental conditions like humidity and light conditions. Kind of like the humidity of the Lush Jungle.

This species has lobes on its legs that mimic flower petals. Its natural habitat consists of white and pink flowers in bushes and small trees. In this way the mantis can remain unseen for predators such as birds and at the same time can catch insects that are attracted to the flowers. Kinda ingenious.
In the orchid mantises, the females, are up to four inches long, much bigger than the males. I wonder if that Totem Lurantis was female I mean it was huge.
The males shares some of the females’ colors, but in a pattern that was more like camouflage, while staying small. The adult males can be extremely skittish and hyperactive. The adult male will often try to fly away when disturbed.
Now the real question is why is Lurantis a grass Pokemon. Orchid Mantis are bugs that pretend to be plants not the other way around. Well I'm wrapping it up here! If you enjoyed the video leave a like and until next time deuces.
