Jumpluff (Japanese: ワタッコ Watacco) is a dual-type Grass/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Skiploom starting at level 27. It is the final form of Hoppip.

Biology

Physiology

Jumpluff's body is blue and round. Three cotton puffs, almost as large as the body itself, extend off it: one on each arm, and one on top of its head. Three to four leaves grow at the base of the top puff. Jumpluff has round feet and a small tail, and its eyes are red and beady.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Jumpluff can use its fluffy cotton spores to float through the air. These spores can control its flight even in the extremely high winds of a hurricane.

Behavior

Jumpluff drifts on seasonal winds and can use its cotton spores to masterfully maneuver itself around the globe. It will spread spores as it floats around to create offspring. Jumpluff descends to the ground if it encounters cold air currents while it is floating.

Habitat

Jumpluff spend a great deal of time in the air, however the majority of sightings have been in air spaces above open paddocks and grasslands as well as in the canopy of forests. Little is known about what Jumpluff do when not in the air, as most research done into them revolves around their unique way of being "carried" by the wind. As it is stated numerous times that Jumpluff spread spores as they fly, it can be gathered that their reason for floating through open grasslands is not only due to the abundance of breezes in areas free of trees, but also because the spores require spaces to be blown to.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

On some cards and/or television episodes it has been hinted or indicated that Jumpluff has an herbivorous diet (grass, plants) though nobody knows for sure.

Trivia

  • At 6.6 lbs, Jumpluff is the lightest Pokémon that has undergone two evolutions.
  • In Pokémon Colosseum, the shadows of Jumpluff's spores are square. In addition, the spores are always facing the same way relative to the camera, and as such, the player is the only able to see one side of them. This was fixed in Pokémon XD.
  • Jumpluff and its pre-evolutions were given their English names by Nob Ogasawara.

Origin

Jumpluff appears to be based on the final stage in the lifespan of a dandelion. Its movements in Pokémon Battle Revolution gives it a look of a cheerleader.

Name origin

Jumpluff is a combination of jump and fluff. It could also be a corruption of plush, meaning a soft object or an object made of felt. The names of all stages of its evolutionary line are based on the phrase, "Just a hop, skip, and a jump away."

Watacco is a combination of 綿 wata (cotton) and 根っ子 nekko (root).
