Tropius (Japanese: トロピウス Tropius) is a dual-type Grass/Flying Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Tropius are large sauropod Pokémon with brown and green bodies. They possess large green leaves on their backs which they use for flight. These leaves also double for sugar production via photosynthesis, to give Tropius even more energy. Despite being very big and bulky, they are surprisingly maneuverable in the air. They have long necks which they use for reaching treetops to gorge on their most favoured food, fruits. They also grow fruits of their own on their necks that resemble a bunch of ripe bananas. These fruits can be picked and consumed by other Pokémon and by humans, and grow twice a year because of the rapid reproduction of sugar in their leaves, making the rapid production of the fruits in its neck. Their feet have toenails the same color as their fruit.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

They can fly pretty well despite appearing ungainly in the air.

Behavior

Tropius spend their days feasting on fruit. They are generous, allowing children and other Pokémon to pick and eat the fruit growing on their neck.

Habitat

Tropius live in tropical rain forests, although they also appear in southern Sinnoh, which is one of the warmer areas of the region.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Tropius enjoy fruit, especially one kind in particular. Since it ate only this kind of fruit continuously, the fruit began to grow around its neck.

In the anime

Tropius in the anime

Tropius's first appearance was in the Pokémon movie Jirachi: Wish Maker. In it, Tropius was fleeing from the fake Groudon that was trying to snatch all the Pokémon.

The first major role that Tropius had was in From Brags to Riches. A trainer named Dominick used the Fruit Pokémon and a Swalot against Ash's Corphish and Torkoal. Tropius and Torkoal knocked each other out when their SolarBeam and Overheat attacks connected and created an explosion.

A wild Tropius also challenged Ash's Grovyle in Odd Pokémon Out.

A Tropius appears in the Rota competition in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew battling Kidd Summers' Weavile.

A Tropius made an appearance in The Rise of Darkrai.

In the manga

Sapphire owns a Tropius named Troro given to her by Prof. Birch for flying purposes.

Sapphire Children of the southern tropics eat as snacks the fruit that grows in bunches around the neck of Tropius. This Pokémon flies by flapping the leaves on its back as if they were wings.
Emerald It flies by flapping its broad leaves. The bunch of fruit that grows around its neck is deliciously sweet. In the spring, it scatters pollen from its neck.
FireRed It lives in tropical jungles. The bunch of fruit around its neck is delicious. The fruit grows twice a year.
LeafGreen It lives in tropical jungles. The bunch of fruit around its neck is delicious. The fruit grows twice a year.
Generation IV

Trivia

Origin

Tropius shares characteristics with the Brachiosaurus, a sauropod dinosaur from the late Jurassic period. There is also a legend that a creature known as Mokele mbembe, which is said to resemble a sauropod, lives on in the jungles of the Congo basin in Africa. Tropius also resembles a banana plant.

Name origin

Tropius's name is a combination of tropical and -saurus. It could also be a pun of 'tropism'. Phototropism happens when the plant needs more sunlight, and so turns to the available source of light. If a plant is planted the wrong way around, the roots will use geotropism to grow towards gravity and find water.
