Cottonee (Japanese: モンメン Monmen) is a Grass-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Whimsicott when exposed to a Sun Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Cottonee is a white, circular Pokémon, with white, puffy sections on the top of its head and its underside. Behind it is a green, star shaped section similar to the area where a plant connects to its produce. It has orange, oval-shaped eyes, and furled, notched leaves on the sides of its body.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

When attacked it releases cotton to confuse the enemy and escape. Its cotton can be used as a defensive mechanism that aids its self defense.

Behavior

Cottonee travel on wind in groups during times of mating. Cottonee are usually very friendly and are often seen helping each other out.

Habitat

Cottonee is blown around by the wind because of its lightweight composition. The only circumstance in which it cannot be blown by wind is when it has been soaked by rain, which weighs it down and makes it soggy. Afterwards, this Pokémon will stay under a tree until it dries, so that it may be blown by the wind again.

Black When attacked, it escapes by shooting cotton from its body. The cotton serves as a decoy to distract the attacker.
White They go wherever the wind takes them. On rainy days, their bodies are heavier, so they take shelter beneath big trees.
