Pom-Pom style is a pale yellow bird with puffs of yellow on its ankles and big puffs at the end of its wings. Feathers extend from its head with darker yellow tips. It is very friendly towards people and uses its dance to encourage trainers. The dance charges static electricity in its feathers that can send an electric shock
Pa'u Style is a pink bird with light pink feathers forming a headress and a skirt. 3 feathers extend from its winds resembling hands. This kind of Oricorio goes at its own pace which can be difficult to deal with. It sharpens its spirited moves with dance that increase psychic power. The dance seems to express gratitude to the island guardian deities.
Sensu style is quiet and collected. While it dances, it gathers drifting spirits in the area and borrows their power to fight. People from Kanto are said to like this style the most since it is the most reminiscent of their homeland.
