Why do you think Spike Chunsoft developers have no plans for the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon video game of any kind based on the Pokémon Sun & Moon video game series?

So I was playing Pokémon Moon, my Tapu Bulu leveled up to 87. But when I looked in the PC, there was a little purple face above the moves learned. I think it has to do with Pokerus, but I’m not sure. Do any of you know what it is?120895

He had Pokérus (technically he still does), but it is no longer contagious.

What an odd question. I mean, practically almost every Pokémon can one way or form, but let's test the waters. You never know! I'll go off of Gen VII for everyone.

One of the easiest way to beat Shedinja is status, notably the TM almost everyone gets: (TM06) Toxic

Let's see how the Pokémon that can't access this TM can defeat it:
  • Wobbuffet/Wynaut - None of its moves can affect Shedinja, that is nodding to Counter and Mirror Coat. So I guess if you can get a hard read, you can Destiny Bond the Shedinja.
  • Kricketot - learns no super-effective moves against Shedinja nor status or residual damage moves!
  • Burmy - Learns Hidden Power. Just get one that's super effective against Shedinja.
  • Tynamo - Same as Kricketot. Electric doesn't bypass wonder guard.
  • Spewpa - Gets Poison Powder to poison Shedinja.
  • Magearna - Learns Hidden Power and Shadow Ball via TM
  • Unown - Hidden Power
So, the only 2 Pokémon it seems that cannot defeat Shedinja and Wonder Guard is Kricketot and Tynamo.

I red somewhere that Venusaur and some hard hitters have problems taking it out too.
Hmmm Toxic You say? weather casters too wont have a problem.
Makes me wonder why it got only one Hp actually?

It's the shed exoskeleton of a cicada. A carcass would not have much (or any, tbh) HP.
I know. 1 HP 1 life motive but in game play it's problematic but with fairy terrain you can avoid toxic at least.
I would give it 3 HP.
