As the fourth and final Tapu Pokemon, Tapu Fini is a powerful Water/Fairy-type legendary. It has the highest defense of all the Tapus, allowing it to fire off lots of strong Charged Moves, such as Ice Beam and Hydro Pump.

It also learns the rare Fast Move Hidden Power, which can be almost any type. This means Tapu Fini can use this to surprise opponents and turn the tide in a battle!
