Breloom (Japanese: キノガッサ Kinogassa) is a dual-type Grass/Fighting Pokémon.

It evolves from Shroomish starting at level 23.

Biology

Physiology

In sharp contrast to the diminutive Shroomish, Breloom sports an agile shape, similar to a kangaroo or a theropod. It has a mushroom-like "cap" on its head and seed clusters on the end of its tail it uses to slam into its foe. Its arms appear to be short and of little use, but they can stretch surprisingly far to deliver punches. Its red claws are ideal for slicing.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Like Shroomish, Breloom can store up spores that causes several status ailments. They are also physically very strong, much like most Template:Type2s, and extremely fast. Some of its unique moves depends on these two factors; one being able to hit high opponents, and the other to make sure it strikes first.

Behavior

Breloom come in groups along with other Shroomish and partake in tasks for their survival like foraging for food and defending their kind from enemies and predators, once threatened, Breloom will not hesitate to fight and will not cease until their enemies have been warded off or beaten. Breloom are formidable combatants in battle and will take on almost any Pokémon who poses as a threat to their kind, especially their young.

Breloom in the anime

Breloom's first appearance was a cameo in the first Advanced Generation series movie, Jirachi: Wish Maker. The Mushroom Pokémon was one of the residents of Forina, Jirachi's home. The first major role Breloom had was in A Shroomish Skirmish. Ash and friends were being attacked by Breloom that had evolved from Shroomish that were mad at them for stealing their food. May's newly evolved Combusken defeated the Breloom and saved the day.

Breloom had another cameo in Numero Uno Articuno as a Pokémon belonging to Noland.

Ash rented a Breloom from Master Hamm in Pasta la Vista to battle Kyle's Hitmonchan, which was rented to May.

Kenny has a Breloom that appeared in Journey to the Unown! and Team Shocker!.
