Weepinbell (Japanese: ウツドン Utsudon) is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Weepinbell has a yellow, bell-shaped body and a wide, gaping mouth. It has green, razor sharp, leafy appendages. Weepinbell also has a brown hook at the rear of its head which may be a remnant of the roots of it's previous form.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Weepinbell has an extremely potent internal acid which has the ability to dissolve almost anything within seconds. Weepinbell also oozes a neutralizing fluid which prevents it's internal acids from melting it.

Behavior

Weepinbell camouflage themselves as plants in the forest whilst awaiting an unwary victim. When it's prey draws near the Weepinbell sprays toxic pollen to immobilize the target before melting it with it's internal acids. Weepinbell hangs from tree branches by it's brown hook as it sleeps. If it moves around during sleep, the Weepinbell may slip and awaken to find itself on the ground.

Habitat

Weepinbell live in forests, as well as tropical jungles and swamps where the ground is rich in nutrients. They can also occasionally be found in caves, near sources of underground water.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Weepinbell is less of a picky eater than its previous form, as it will attempt to eat anything that passes near it. If a foe is too large to fit in Weepinbell's mouth it will use it's razor sharp leaves to slice it's meal into smaller pieces.
