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

It evolves from Gloom via Sun Stone. It is one of the final forms of Oddish.

Biology

Physiology

Bellossom is quite different physically from the rest of its evolutionary family. It 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 preforming 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.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Behavior

Bellossum are often seen dancing and chanting, resembling cheerleaders, although they're not actually cheering for anyone.

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.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Bellossom first appeared in Pikachu's Rescue Adventure.

Bellossom's first major appearance was in Flower Power. A girl named Bailey had a pair that she wanted to be able to a dance, but one of them was having trouble with the somersault that the dance required.

A Bellossom was also used in a Template:Type2 battle in The Grass Route.

Bellossom was in a garden that Ash's Bayleef ran off to in Turning Over a New Bayleef.

In Whichever Way the Wind Blows, there was a meadow in which Gloom evolved by collecting sediments of either Leaf Stones or Sun Stones that blew in the wind. The Vileplume and Bellossom were feuding in that area.

Tammy from I Politoed Ya So had some Bellossom in her cheerleading squad.

A Bellossom appeared in Arriving in Style!.

In the manga

Pokémon Special

As early as Template:PSV, Erika owns a group of Bellossom who presumably help her in flower arrangement.

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.

Trivia

File:1999 art cara 2.gif
Bellossom's early artwork
  • Bellossom is both smaller and lighter than its pre-evolved form Gloom, a trait shared with Porygon2. Bellossom is also smaller than its earliest form, Oddish, and is barely heavier than it.
  • Early artwork of Bellossom, made prior to the release of Gold and Silver, shows this Pokémon with a body that is the same color as its Template:Shiny2 form, though that shiny form would not come until Generation III.
  • Bellossom shares the same species name with Vileplume and Bellsprout. They are all known as Flower Pokémon.
  • Bellossom's sprites changed dramatically from Generation II to Generation III. Early sprites showed it having pink and red leaves instead of green in the normal and shiny sprites and pink and red flowers instead of red and pink.
  • Bellossom is the only single-typed Pokémon that evolves from a dual-typed Pokémon.
  • Shiny Bellossom's sprite is similar to non-shiny Bellossom's appearance when taking damage from Poison.

Origin

Bellossom may be based on a hula dancer.

Name origin

Bellossom's name is a combination of bell, referring to the fact that the petals of its skirt make ringing noises, and blossom. It also can come from bella, Spanish for pretty. 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
