#45: Vileplume - Grass Poison Type


[PokeDex Entry]



The Flower Pokémon

  • Alpha-sapphire: Vileplume has the world’s largest petals. They are used to attract prey that are then doused with toxic spores. Once the prey are immobilized, this Pokémon catches and devours them.

    Omega-ruby: Vileplume’s toxic pollen triggers atrocious allergy attacks. That’s why it is advisable never to approach any attractive flowers in a jungle, however pretty they may be.

    Y: It has the world’s largest petals. With every step, the petals shake out heavy clouds of toxic pollen.

    Prof. Lotus' Notes: Vileplume is based on the plant Rafflesia arnoldii a.k.a. the 'Stinking Corpse lily'. The plant got it's name because it smells like rotting flesh. This is the final stage of the Parasite as it has now fully integrated itself with the host Oddish, the evolution line where the inverse is true is Bellossom.

    Gender Differences: Female's petals have larger spots
