Pokédex entries

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
Generation I
Red The larger its petals, the more toxic pollen it contains. Its big head is heavy and hard to hold up.
Blue
Yellow Flaps its broad flower petals to scatter its poisonous pollen. The flapping sound is very loud.
Stadium Scatters allergy-causing pollen from its broad petals. The larger the petals, the more pollen is scattered.
Generation II
Gold It has the world's largest petals. With every step, the petals shake out heavy clouds of toxic pollen.

Stadium 2 It has the world's largest petals. With every step, the petals shake out heavy clouds of toxic pollen.
Generation III
Ruby Vileplume's toxic pollen triggers atrocious allergy attacks. That's why it is advisable never to approach any attractive flowers in a jungle, however pretty they may be.

Trivia

Origin

Vileplume, like Gloom, is based on the rafflesia arnoldii, a foul-smelling flower. This Pokémon more strongly resembles the flower than Gloom, which may represent the budding stage of the rafflesia.

Name origin

Vileplume's name comes from a combination of vile and plume. Its Japanese name is a corruption of the word rafflesia.
