Hoppip (Japanese: ハネッコ Hanecco) is a dual-type Grass/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Skiploom starting at level 18, who evolves into Jumpluff starting at level 27.

Biology

Physiology

Hoppip has a small, round pink body with long green sprouts, resembling the leaves of dandelions in shape, coming out of its head. It is extremely light and can easily blow away in the wind. It also has big, triangular ears with dark insides, small arms and legs, and a tiny tail. Hoppip’s beady yellow eyes appear to lack pupils, and it has a circular yellow spot on the underside of its feet.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Hoppip’s most unique feature is its ability to be blown into the air. All it needs is a light breeze and Hoppip can be lifted off the ground and blown by the wind. Hoppip are also capable of using a variety of Grass-type moves, like those involving powders, seeds, and the draining of energy, although Hoppip are also capable of learning the Bug-type move U-turn.

Behavior

Hoppip are by necessity social creatures. Their light bodies make them extremely vulnerable to winds, so they cluster together and link sprouts with each other in order to anchor themselves in place, or grip the ground firmly with its feet to keep from being blown away.

Habitat

Hoppip live in grasslands, although they drift through fields, mountains, and even urban environments.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

As a Grass-type, it is possible that Hoppip uses sunlight as energy.

Trivia

  • At 1.1 lbs, Hoppip is both the lightest Grass-type and the lightest Flying-type Pokémon.
  • Hoppip is one of ten non-Bug, Template:Type2 Pokémon that cannot learn Fly.
  • Hoppip can learn Pay Day by breeding in Generation II, but only from a Pikachu or Raichu with the move transferred from a Generation I game.
  • Hoppip's tail only shows on the back sprite from Generations II - IV, but it's tail shows on the front sprite on HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Origin

Hoppip appears to be based on a bulb or root. The leaves on its head resemble leaves of a dandelion.

Name origin

Hoppip's name is probably based on hop or hip-hop or hippity-hop, indicating that it jumps or flies through the air. It may also come from pip, a type of seed. The names of all stages of its evolutionary line are likely based on the phrase, "Just a hop, skip, and a jump away". Its Japanese name is a combination of 葉 ha, leaf, and 根っ子 nekko, root. 跳ねる haneru, to jump or hop, and 羽 hane, wing, may also be part of its name.

In other languages

  • German: Hoppspross - From hopsen (hop) and Spross (sprout).
  • French: Granivol - From graine (seed) and vol (flight).
  • Korean: 통통코 Tongtongki
