Urshifu – Legendary
Kubfu evolves into the Legendary Pokemon Urshifu which has two different forms.
Single Stike Style Urshifu is a Fighting- and Dark-type. Rapid Strike Style Urshifu is a Fighting- and Water-type. Both have the ability Unseen Fist.
Additionally, each evolution has a unique attack that represents their fighting style. Single Strike Urshifu learns Wicked Blow, a powerful blow that always lands a Critical Hit. Rapid Strike Urshifu learns Surging Strikes, a three hit combo that also always results in a Critical Hit.
From the official Pokemon website: Kubfu will evolve into either Single Strike Style Urshifu or Rapid Strike Style Urshifu. Which form it evolves into will change depending on choices made during your adventure. The forms are not tied to the game version you are playing.
Each Urshifu form can Gigantamax, too, which you can see above.
Dark attacks used by Single Strike G-Max Urshifu will change to G-Max One Blow, and Water attacks used by Rapid Strike G-Max Urshifu will turn to G-Max Rapid Flow. Both attacks deal damage even if the target defends itself with Max Guard or Protect.
