White: When it becomes bored, it stimulates its mind by creating puzzles and carving them into bark.
Black 2/White 2: It is highly intelligent, but it thinks only of itself. Only when it achieves enlightenment does it evolve.

Black: Argalis fends off any attack with its robust shields. Its strength and aggression is unnerving.
White: If in need of help, it emits a loud tinny sound. This alerts fellow Argalis to its whereabouts.
Black 2/White 2: It sheds strands of its delicate fur when travelling. These strands are then sold in total secrecy.

Black: It's occasionally found buried underground, due to sleeping extensively. People will try to dig one up and sell it.
White: Its wings break off when they're too damaged. After a day, they usually disintegrate.
Black 2/White 2: This Pokemon's shed wings, when melted down, can be forged into durable jewelry. However, it can hide notoriously well.

Black: Ancient people revered Argalis as a deity due to the usefulness of its shell in technology. It sheds the pure silver shell from time to time.
White: This Pokémon's shell is often sought after by jewelers. It sheds its shell, which helps to cut down on poaching.
Black 2/White 2: Its shining shell is not seen until after evolution. No one knows whether the shell is formed during evolution, or if it actually causes evolution.
