~ Pokédex Pokémon Sword

The six of them work together as one Pokémon. Teamwork is also their battle strategy, and they constantly change their formation as they fight

Falinks may appear to only be one caterpillar-like Pokémon, but in reality, it’s six small troopers lined up to create the image of one Pokémon. Five troopers follow their leader, the brass.
