Trivia

Origin

Whimsicott appears to be based on a fully bloomed ball of cotton. It also may draw some origin from the Vegetable Lamb of Tartary, which was a type of sheep-growing plant that was used to explain the production of cotton in the middle ages. It may also have been based on the Brazilian folklore creature known as the Saci; both are brown creatures that live in forests, ride on winds, and play pranks. They also appear to be based on a sheep.

Name origin

Whimsicott may be a combination of whimsical or whimsy and cotton.

Elfuun may be a combination of elf and ふわふわ fuwa fuwa (soft, airy and light), float, or typhoon.
