Cherubi (Japanese: チェリンボ Cherinbo) is a Grass-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Cherrim starting at level 25.

Biology

Physiology

Cherubi has a round, deep-pink body with two stubby feet. It has beady eyes, and a purple-red stripe running down part of its face. Cherubi has a short stem with two big, green leaves and a second, much smaller head growing out of it. This second head is vestigial in terms of function but it contains nutrients that contribute to Cherubi's growth (somewhat similar to Azurill). The second head is apparently edible and several Pokémon have been seen trying to pluck it off. When Cherubi is about to evolve, the second head starts to wilt.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Cherubi, like many other Grass-types, can utilize the sun in order to use moves like Synthesis, Morning Sun, and SolarBeam. Cherubi is also able to learn seed-based moves like Leech Seed and Worry Seed, with supporting moves such as Growth, Helping Hand, and Lucky Chant.

Behavior

Cherubi have been known to sun bathe on warm days, a trait which is believed to lead to their evolution's dependance on solar intensity.

Habitat

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Cherubi gets its nutrients from a variety of sources. Its smaller head serves as its initial source of food, but being a plant, it also uses photosynthesis, and it is attracted to honey.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP031 Cherubi Dawn's Pokédex Cherubi, the Cherry Pokémon. All of the nutrients needed for evolution are contained in its small ball. Cherubi becomes redder as it is exposed to sunlight, and is almost ready to evolve once the smaller ball buds.
DP125 Cherubi Ash's Pokédex Cherubi, the Cherry Pokémon. Cherubi's attached small ball holds the nutrients needed for its evolution.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Cherubi appears in Pokémon Adventures, in the Diamond & Pearl chapter. Gardenia used a Cherubi alongside her Roserade in a Double Battle against Platinum's Prinplup and Ponyta. After Piplup evolved into Prinplup, Cherubi's Grass Knot became more effective against the heavier Pokémon, leaving the Penguin Pokémon in a difficult situation. However, Platinum took advantage of the cover that the knots gave and the holes that Roserade's poison whips created to deliver a finishing Blizzard that defeated both her Pokémon.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Gardenia's Cherubi also appears in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!, as Hareta's first opponent. It attempted to use Leech Seed on Hareta's Shinx, but was quickly felled by cub's Bite.
