(Japanese: ジャローダ Jalorda) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Janovy starting at level 36. It is the final form of Tsutarja.

Biology

Physiology

Jalorda is a primarily pale-green, snake-like Pokémon. Jalorda has curled pale-green patterns on the sides of its face and snout, and small, pointed yellow extensions on the back of their heads. Its face and upper neck are white-colored, and curled, tendril-like darker green extensions spread out from the sides of its lower neck, forming a curling pattern lower down the body, resembling a fancy collar. It has narrow yellow eyes. The upper section of its body is dark green, and the lower pale green. Curled yellow patterns adorn its body, and a sprig-like feature of several leaves tip its tail. It has lost its legs completely, and now only has small, stubby hands.

Gender differences

None

Special abilities

Jalorda is able to amplify sunlight inside its body. Its piercing stare can stop opponents in their tracks.

Behavior

Jalorda holds its head high pretentiously while fighting and doesn't take most opponents seriously, unless it faces a particularly powerful opponent.

Trivia

  • Jalorda is the tallest of all fully evolved starter Pokémon.
  • Jalorda is the only starter Pokémon with no legs.

Origin

Jalorda is based off multiple species of non-venomous snakes and limbless lizards, such as the Green Vine Snake, the Emerald Tree Boa or the snake-like Lialis burtonis. Its design was based off of Strelitzias, most likely either the strelitzia juncea and/or the strelitzia regina. Its appearence may have also been inspired by the Quetzalcoatl; a green, feathered serpent deity. Jalorda's appearance may have been based on the acanthus leaf motifs used specially during the 18th century. It and its pre-evolutions were confirmed to have been inspired from European, specifically French, royalty. The fact that Jalorda amplifies sunlight in its body, as stated in its Pokédex entry, may be an allusion to King Louis XIV, a famous French king who referred to himself as the "Sun King". Jalorda's white face also alludes to the skin whitening fashion, mostly used by the European aristocracy in the 17th century. Tsutarja and its evolutionary line may also be based off of the Serpent in the Garden of Eden story from the Old Testament. God had cursed the serpent to crawl on its belly and lose its legs for leading mankind into sin. Jalorda's Dream World ability also suggests this.
