Aipom (Japanese: エイパム Eipam) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves into Ambipom by level-up while knowing Double Hit.

Biology

Physiology

Aipom appear to be purple monkeys. Their beige faces have round eyes and a constantly cheeky smile. Along their heads are large, oval-shaped ears and a cowlick. An Aipom's arms are completely purple with no actual paws nor fingers present, while they do have visible feet instead.

The most famous feature of this arboreal Pokémon is the three-fingered hand on the end of its tail. It uses its tail for many purposes, such as grappling onto tree branches, picking fruit and manipulating objects. It even uses its tail in most of its attacks. It uses its tail so much that its real arms aren't as dexterous as a result.

Gender differences

A female has a longer cowlick on its head.

Special abilities

Aipom are very acrobatic and can therefore learn Aerial Ace, Bounce and U-turn. Aipom can also learn a couple of Template:Type2 moves, such as Brick Break and Focus Punch. Even though Aipom doesn't seem to possess any claws, it can use slashing moves such as Shadow Claw and Cut. Aipom can also learn a few special-based moves, such as Swift, Thunderbolt and Shadow Ball. Some of Aipom's status moves include Thunder Wave, Tickle, Baton Pass and the rarely seen Nasty Plot. Aipom is one of the few Pokémon that can evolve after learning a certain move. The move in Aipom's case is Double Hit.

Behavior

Habitat

Aipom usually live in heavily wooded areas.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime, it was shown that, like real monkeys, are partial to bananas and other fruit. They also have a sweet tooth and are easily attracted to the scent of Honey.

In the anime

Aipom first appeared in Spell of the Unown under the ownership of Lisa.

A group of Aipom were causing mischief in A Hot Water Battle.

An Aipom made off with one of Delibird's missing presents in Delibird's Dilemma.

In Hocus Pokémon, an Aipom's tear was needed for a spell.

In Extreme Pokémon, a baby Aipom appeared in a Pokémon Egg Ranch.

A number of Aipom appeared in Slaking Kong. One of them stole Ash's hat.

In Channeling the Battle Zone, Ash captured the aforementioned Aipom. Her behavior is similar to that of Ash's Chikorita. In Throwing the Track Switch, he traded her to Dawn for Buizel because Aipom was more interested in Contests and Buizel was more interested in Gyms. Aipom evolved into Ambipom in Journey to the Unown! protecting Dawn from the attacking Unown.

Mew took the form of an Aipom in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew

In the manga

In Pokémon Special, Gold has an Aipom named Ataro.

Trivia

  • Aipom's Pokémon Gold and Silver sprites appeared to be dark in color, but were made slightly lighter in Pokémon Crystal.
  • Similar to Smoochum and Elekid, the color of Aipom's Template:Shiny2 sprite in Gold and Silver Versions become the normal color. However, the purple was toned down a bit.
  • Aipom is the only Pokémon that evolves by learning Double Hit; all other Pokémon which evolve after learning a move, besides Lickitung, share that specific method of evolution with at least one other Pokémon.

Origin

It appears to have been based on a monkey, with an exaggerated concept of a prehensile tail.

Name origin

Aipom's name may be a combination of ape and palm, referring to the hand on its tail.

In other languages

  • German: Griffel - word for Hands or Fingers with a negative connotation.
  • French: Capumain - From Capucin, a little monkey, and main, hand.
  • Korean: 에이팜 Eipam
