In the anime

Nuzleaf first appeared in Turning Over a Nuzleaf. When Pikachu, Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, Silcoon, Lotad and Corphish get separated from Ash, May, Brock and Max and got lost in a forest, these wily Pokémon caused trouble for them.

A colony of Seedot and Nuzleaf appeared in Leave it to Brocko!. One of the Nuzleaf got separated from its colony and Brock and Sudowoodo had to bring it home before Team Rocket could steal it. This Nuzleaf also seemed to be fast friends with Brock's Sudowoodo, even when Sudowoodo was a Bonsly.

Yōko of the Eterna Gym owns a Nuzleaf. In The Grass-Type is Always Greener, when Gardenia was traveling in the Eterna Forest, it brought her a note summoning her back to the Gym. It seen again in The Grass Menagerie! alongside its trainer.

A Nuzleaf made a cameo appearance in Camping It Up!.

Trivia

  • Nuzleaf's Defense stat is lower than that of its pre-evolved form, Seedot. Additionally, Defense is tied for Nuzleaf's lowest stat, where as Defense is Seedot's highest stat.
  • Nuzleaf's Generation III and Generation IV front and back sprites are very similar. The differences between front sprites are slight coloring adjustments, while the back sprite's pose changes arm position.

Origin

Nuzleaf is probably based on an acorn, 天狗 Tengu, tricky Japanese goblins who are known for their long noses, cruel tricks, and ability to read minds, and possibly on Pinnochio.

Name origin

Nuzleaf's name may be a combination of nuzzle or nose and leaf. Its Japanese name is literally 巨の鼻 konohana, big nose, but more formally seems to be a combination of 木の葉 konoha, leaves, and 鼻 hana, nose or 花 hana, flower. Konohana may also be この 花 kono hana, this flower.

In other languages

  • German: Blanas - a combination of Blad (brat, referring to its disruptive nature) and Nase (nose).
  • French: Pifeuil - From pif (a slang term for both nose and olfaction), and feuille (leaf).
  • Korean: 잎새코 Ipsaeko
