"It digs up the ground with its trunk. It's also very strong, being able to carry loads of over five tons without any problem at all. If a job requires serious strength, this Pokémon will excel at it. Its copper body tarnishes in the rain, turning a vibrant green color."
Cufant first appeared while Lexi was trying to find a final member of her Galar League Team. After Silvally managed to cause a small avalanche, a team of builders intervened, and Cufant managed to clear most of the debris. Despite this, its Trainer scolded it for not clearing it completely, which concerned Lexi. Training nearby, the Cufant continued to watch them train, but was once again scolded for not paying attention, catching the attention of the group nearby. Realising it was being abused, Lexi attempted to free the Cufant but failed due to Cufants loyalty. The next morning, Lexi couldn't allow it to be left, and so convinced the Trainer to give it up. Lexi then trained with it, in which its skills were apparent. She then used him in her following League team.
Cufant is a courageous Pokémon, who often likes to help others whenevr he can. He carries this over into battling, always looking at the positives and having a can-do attitude.
Cufant has super strength, using its trunk to be able to lift a whole house with little effort. His robust figure means he's great at defensive tactics.
