Their body is made of an intricate and interconnected weave of their own puns.
Hold Back: The user goads the opposing Pokemon into taking a swing at it, only for another member of the opposing team to come out at the last second, grab their teammate by the shoulder and yell "NO, IT'S NOT WORTH IT!" The grab is overly aggressive and damages the Pokemon.

Play nice.

Two Pokemon decide to play flag football instead of American tackle football - ergo, playing nicer than normally. Since there's no physical contact from the user of the move, the other Pokemon relaxes, thus lowering their attack.

Spore: The user offers the opponent the opportunity to play Spore. They spend so much time making creatures that they tire themself out and go to sleep. Since plants can't play video games, this move doesn't work on Grass types.

This Pokémon can often be found alone in her room writing or reading. This is because she is an introvert who doesn’t feel like going outside today.
Grassy Glide: The user creates a hang glider out of grass, and smacks into the opponent to deal damage. On Grassy Terrain, there is more grass, and the hang glider is faster to make, thus giving the user priority.

Spirit Shackle: The user takes out a big shackle chain and beats the crap out of the opponent. They mostly go for the legs, breaking them and not letting the foe leave the battle as a result.
