Ampharos appear vastly different to its pre-evolutions, but it retains many of their features. For example, it remains bipedal like Flaaffy. It also retains the orb on the end of its tail, and the conical ears shared by both its pre-evolutions. The wool it had is now entirely gone, and its body is now mostly yellow in coloration with a white belly. It has black stripes on its neck, ears, and tail. The orb on its tail is now red, and it has gained another smaller orb on its forehead. Its stubby arms resemble flippers. Its height is 4'07" and weight is 135.6 lbs.
Ampharos gives off so much light that it can be seen even from space. People once used the light of this Pokémon as a beacon, or to send signals across the ocean.
Ampharos is a gentle Pokémon that spends most of its time grazing in flocks of other Ampharos and its pre-evolutions, Mareep and Flaaffy. Because its tail glows brightly, in times of emergency it uses its tail as a beacon in the place of a lighthouse.
Ampharos can be generally found in grasslands along with their pre-evolutions, but are an uncommon sight.
