Wingull is a tiny, white Pokémon that resembles a seagull. It looks to lack a neck and its head dominates the majority of its body. Wingull’s eyes are narrow and simple, and it has two triangular tufts on top of its head, as well as an orange beak with a hooked, black tip. It has a fan-like tail with three blue-tipped feathers and little orange feet with two webbed toes. Wingull’s wings are long and flat, with bright blue stripes at the tips.

It can capture updrafts and glide over the sky by spreading its wings. Wingulls only fold their wings while they are resting. It builds its nests on rocky rocks near the sea and uses its beak to conceal prey and treasures in different areas. Talonflame, the principal predator of Wingull in Alola, strikes and captures them with tremendous kicks. It flies over the waters in search of its favorite prey, Wishiwashi. Fishermen use this talent to find locations rich in fish Pokémon. It also enjoys eating Finneon that leap to the surface of the water.
