Flaaffy (Japanese: モココ Mokoko) is an Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Mareep starting at level 15, and evolves into Ampharos starting at level 30.

Biology

Physiology

Flaaffy looks like a pink-skinned lamb or sheep. It has curly white wool on its head and around its collar. It has a black and pink striped pattern on its ears and tail. There is a blue sphere at the end of Flaaffy's tail which acts a small lightbulb. Unlike Mareep, Flaaffy are able to walk on their hind legs.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Flaaffy's wool is similar to Mareep's in that it stores electricity; however, Flaaffy's wool is much more efficient, so that it can store more electricity than Mareep despite having less wool on its body. They also have rubbery skin to prevent themselves from being electrocuted. Unlike Mareep, Flaaffy are able to stand on their hind legs and are able to use their forelimbs to maniuplate things or deliver blows.

Behavior

These Pokémon are usually mild-mannered and gentle.

Habitat

One is most likely to find Flaaffy in grassy meadows and fields.

Trivia

Origin

Flaaffy is based on a sheep that has had some of its wool sheered off. Its electrical aspect and ability come from how wool builds up static charges. It, its evolution, and its pre-evolution, may also have been based off the title of the science fiction novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. Mareep, Flaaffy & Ampharos may also be inspired by male pattern baldness.

Name origin

Flaaffy's name may be a combination of fluffy and baa, the sound a sheep makes. Alternately, the name could be a combination of ‘’fluffy’’ and ‘’taffy’’, an informal nickname for Welsh people, who are often stereotypically associated with sheep. It may also incorporate "laugh", considering its playful nature. The double-A in its name could also originate from a double-A battery, given Flaaffy's electric type. Its Japanese name could come from 羊毛 yōmō, wool, and a corruption of もこもこ mokomoko, fluffy.

In other languages

  • German: Waaty - From watt and/or Watte (cotton wool).
  • French: Lainergie - From laine (wool) and énergie (energy).
  • Korean: 보송송 Bosongsong
  • Chinese (Taiwan and Hong Kong): 綿綿 Mián Mián - The character 綿 literally means silk floss. May be derived from 綿羊 Mián​yáng (sheep). The name literally means "continuous".
