Bellossom (Japanese: キレイハナ Kireihana) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Gloom when exposed to a Sun Stone. It is one of Oddish's final forms.

Biology

Physiology

Bellossom is quite different physically from the rest of its evolutionary family, such as for its being primarily green in coloration instead of blue, its circular blue eyes instead of dot-like red ones, and for the red markings on its cheeks. Bellossom has two bright red flowers on its head and green and yellow leaves that resemble a skirt. It all adds to an appearance of a hula dancer. It may or may not possess feet (a trait shared by Jynx). However, while performing the "Bel-loop-de-loop" in the episode, Flower Power its center-most leaves bent as it was getting ready to spring. This may suggest that Bellossom may not have "feet" per se, but rather leaves that act as substitutions for feet/legs. Also, a Bellossom's petals are said to be more beautiful the worse the Gloom it evolved from smelled.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

When they rub the petals on their head together, it creates a pleasing sound.

Behavior

Bellossom are often seen dancing and chanting, resembling cheerleaders, although they're usually not actually cheering for anyone. In particular, Bellossom dances when cloudy weather persists, or when the heavy rainfall season ends and it is drawn out by the warm sunlight.

Habitat

Bellossom live in grassy plains, and can also be found in tropical areas such as jungles and swamps, where the ground is rich in nutrients.

Pokédex entries

Manga Chapter Entry
Pokémon Adventures PS163 They will sometimes gather and start dancing. It's also knowns as a ritual dance to worship the sun.*

In the TCG

Main article: Bellossom (TCG)

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

When released from a Poké Ball, Bellossom will use its Sleep Powder to put any nearby opponents into a deep sleep. As Bellossom stays on-screen for longer than most Pokémon, this gives the thrower time to power up a smash move. It is also available as a trophy.

Trophy information

From time to time, these beautiful flower Pokémon will gather in numbers and perform an odd sort of dance to call out the sun. While in the midst of this strange exhibition, their petals brush together to create a peaceful and soothing melody. A Gloom will only evolve into a Bellossom if it's exposed to a Sun Stone.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Bellossom makes a return appearance in Brawl, once again using its Sleep Powder to put opponents to sleep and leave them vulnerable to attacks.

Trivia

Bellossom's early artwork
  • Bellossom is smaller than its pre-evolution, Gloom. The same thing happens to Gengar, Dragonite, and Porygon2 and their respective pre-evolutions.
    • It is one of the few Pokémon that loses weight once it evolves. Others are Porygon to Porygon2, Kadabra to Alakazam, Venonat to Venomoth and Gligar to Gliscor.
    • It is one of two Pokémon that is both smaller and lighter than the Pokémon that it evolves from. The other is Porygon2.
    • Bellossom is also smaller than its earliest form, Oddish, and is barely heavier than it.
    • This makes Bellossom the smallest Pokémon that has evolved twice.
  • Early artwork of Bellossom, made prior to the release of Gold and Silver, shows it with colors similar to what ended up being its shiny color. In Generation III, its shiny color is closer; however, its body is purple rather than blue. This difference in the original coloring is most likely because the game makers may have wanted Bellossom to have more in common with the rest of its evolutionary line, which all have blue bodies. This is also present in its Gold and Silver artwork.
  • Bellossom is the only single-typed Pokémon that evolves from a dual-typed Pokémon (thus the only Pokémon losing secondary type upon evolution).
  • Bellossom shares the same species name with Vileplume and Bellsprout. They are all known as Flower Pokémon.
  • Bellossom can only learn SolarBeam by leveling up in generations 2 and 3, but cannot in 4 or 5, despite being associated with the sun.
    • Interestingly, while Bellossom cannot learn SolarBeam through leveling up, its counterpart Vileplume can.

Origin

Bellossom may be based on a hula dancer.

Name origin

Bellossom's name is a combination of bella or belle, Spanish and French for pretty, and blossom. It may also come from bell, referring to the fact that the petals of its skirt make ringing noises. Its Japanese name is a combination of 奇麗 kirei, pretty, and 花 hana, flower.

In other languages

  • German: Blubella - Combination of Blume (bloom, flower) and Bella, possibly to reflect its fondness of dancing. It also might come from Bluebell.
  • French: Joliflor - From joli (pretty) and a misspelling of fleur (flower).
  • Korean: 아르코 Areuko
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 美麗花 Měi Lì Huā - Literally "Beautiful flower".
