Nuzleaf (Japanese: コノハナ Konohana) is a dual-type Grass/Dark Pokémon.

It evolves from Seedot starting at level 14 and evolves into Shiftry when exposed to a Leaf Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Nuzleaf is more humanoid than Seedot. Its light-brown thighs are bulky and patterned with thin stiations, and it has two small black dots on its chest. Its nose is pointed and it has a light brown "mask", with a pointed pattern extending to the back of its head and a leaf on the top.

Gender differences

A female has a smaller leaf on her head.

Special abilities

Nuzleaf have the ability to use leaves as a form of sound, reminiscent of a flute, that can confuse people and Pokémon, as well as comfort them. Nuzleaf are skilled in climbing trees.

Behavior

When in the wild, Nuzleaf tend to be pranksters, playing tricks on any Trainer or Pokémon who pass by their turf. Nuzleaf dislikes having its long nose pinched, and loses power if it is gripped for its nose is its weak point. Nuzleaf, dwelling in forests, is skilled at climbing trees.

Habitat

Nuzleaf live deep within densely overgrown forests, in holes bored in large trees.

Major appearances

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.

More Nuzleaf appeared in Jump For Joy and lived in an old tree with Seedot and Shiftry. One of them was sick and required attention from Nurse Joy.

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.

Minor appearances

Multiple Nuzleaf appeared in Jirachi: Wish Maker. They were among the Pokémon which lived in Forina.

A Nuzleaf appeared in The Ribbon Cup Caper at the ship's Pokémon Center.

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 was seen again in The Grass Menagerie! , refereeing alongside its Trainer.

A Nuzleaf made a cameo appearance in Camping It Up!

In A Marathon Rivalry!, a Nuzleaf was used by a participant in the Pokéathlon.

Nuzleaf appeared in Zoroark: Master of Illusions as a few of the many local Pokémon who lives in Crown City. One of them worked with the other Pokémon in surrounding Zorua in the park to attack him, angry at Zorua for what Zoroark did to the city. Before a fight broke out, Nuzleaf, along with the other Pokémon, were calmed by Celebi.

Trivia

  • Nuzleaf's Defense stat is lower than that of its pre-evolved form, Seedot.
  • Despite some of Nuzleaf's Pokédex entries saying that it uses the leaf on its head as a flute, Nuzleaf cannot learn GrassWhistle.
  • A Nuzleaf with the face of Lost character John Locke is a recurring character in the Nuzlocke webcomic series and serves as the unofficial mascot of the Nuzlocke Challenge.

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 Pinocchio.

Name origin

Nuzleaf may be a combination of nuzzle or nose and leaf.

Konohana is literally 巨の鼻 konohana (big nose), but it may also be a combination of 木の葉 konoha (leaves) and 鼻 hana (nose).
