Smoochum first appeared in Pikachu and Pichu. She was one of the Pokémon in the Pichu Brothers' posse.

In The Screen Actor's Guilt, action-movie actor Brad had a Smoochum. Brad's agent is afraid that Brad would have his image as an action star ruined if they found out that he owned a Smoochum.

A Smoochum also was used by an unnamed female trainer in One Trick Phony! nicknamed Josephine who battled Pikachu.

Another Smoochum was in Three Jynx and a Baby. She got herself separated from a trio of Jynx sisters and stumbled upon Team Rocket. Jessie had plans on using Smoochum's cuteness for profit, but her plans were foiled by the three Jynx Sisters and Ash and friends.

Jessie uses a Smoochum in DP088.

Trivia

  • The colors used in Smoochum's Generation II Template:Shiny2 sprite are the colors used in the normal-colored sprites afterwards, similar to Elekid and Aipom though Aipom's colors lightened a bit.
  • Smoochum's official artwork shows it having a purple head and lower chest, however the anime and its game sprites show them as being pink.
  • Smoochum and its evolution, Jynx, are the only Pokémon that can learn Avalanche by leveling up.

Origin

Smoochum may be based on ガン黒 ganguro, blonde-haired, tanned Japanese girls, but is meant to resemble an otherwise normal human child. It should be also noted that Yuki Onna, a possible origin for Jynx, is sometimes shown as holding a seemingly human child.

Name origin

Smoochum's name is based on smooch, or kiss. It may also be a pun on smooch 'em. Its Japanese name is based on 夢中 muchū, daze or trance, and ちゅう chu, the sound of a kiss. Its German name, Kussilla, comes from Kuss. Its French name, Lippouti, is a combination of the English word lip and poutou. Its Korean name, 뽀뽀라 Ppoppora includes Ppoppo, which is a small peck or kiss.
