Castform (Japanese: ポワルン Powalen) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon whose type can change to Fire, Water, or Ice depending on the current weather.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Castform is a small, grayish Pokémon that resembles a cloud. Castform appears to have a pair of white goggles; however, Castform's appearance (and type) can change depending on the weather.

In strong sunlight, Castform's lower half becomes pure white while the head turns orange with smaller orange balls surrounding it. This gives Castform's head a shape that is similar to the sun.

During rain, Castform's lower half becomes a darker shade of gray. The head is blue, resembling a drop of rain.

In hail or snowy weather, Castform's head turns purplish-blue. The rest of of the body changes into a mint green cumulonimbus cloud.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Castform has the aforementioned ability to change its form with the weather (even though it lacks forms for sandstorms and fog). Castform is capable of various Fire-, Water-, Ice-, Electric- and Template:Type2 moves. Castform is one of only two Pokémon that can learn Weather Ball (the other is Roserade).

A Castform, nicknamed Popo, belongs to Ruby in Pokémon Special. Previously, she belonged to Mr. Stone, who was injured in an attack by Team Aqua. Popo was then given to Gabby and Ty to be cared for while he was being healed. She later decided to travel with Ruby when he began traveling with the reporters because she was lonely. Until he was reunited with Ruru, Popo was Ruby's Smart contest Pokémon.

Trivia

  • Castform's weather-based transformations are the same color whether or not it is Template:Shiny2.
  • Since Castform's alternate forms are never released from Poké Balls, they have no animated sprites.
  • When Castform undergoes a weather-based transformation, the graphical interlude is the same as that of a Pokémon using the move Transform.
  • Castform will not transform in fog, during a sandstorm or in Shadow Sky.
  • Castform's Weather Ball will always receive STAB, even when its form is changed, except in a sandstorm and when Shadow Sky is active.
  • Along with Cherrim it is the only Pokémon to date to change when the weather changes.
  • For some reason, in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2, it is a body size 4 despite it being a body size 1 in the first Mystery Dungeon games and its in-game sprite still being the same size in the second Mystery Dungeon games.

Origin

It appears to be intended to resemble and act like a living cloud. Its ability to change shape and type depending on the weather condition makes similar to a weather balloon. It's also similar both in concept and design to a teru teru bozu, a Japanese charm doll used to wish for good weather.

Name origin

Castform's name seems to be a combination of forecast, predict the weather, and transform, referring to its ability to change type depending on the weather. The German and French names refer to this also. Its Japanese name may be a combination of 天気予報 tenkyohō, weather forecast, and 変わる kawaru, to change or transform.
