Wynaut (Japanese: ソーナノ Sohnano) is a Template:Type2 baby Pokémon.

It evolves into Wobbuffet starting at level 15.

Biology

Physiology

Wynaut is a small, cyan-colored Pokémon with an balloon-shaped body. Wynaut has a black tail with an eye-spot on it that looks similar to the design of Unown. It has a pair of flipper-like appendages on the sides of its head. There is a round, bulbous growth on Wynaut's forehead.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Wynaut's main means of self-defense is to repel attacks at its foes. However, Wynaut doesn't excel at this as much as its evolved form, Wobbuffet.

Behavior

Wynaut always has a smile on its face. As such, it will use its tail to communicate its feelings. A Wynaut that's slapping the ground with its tail means that it's upset. During moonlit nights, Wynaut gather into groups and squeeze against each other. This activity is used for strengthening up the Wynauts' endurance.

Habitat

Wynaut is only found on Mirage Island, where it is the sole species. It is unknown why Wynaut only appear there. Mirage Island is also the only place the Liechi Berry is found naturally. This leads to the theory that they need to feed on the Liechi Berry to survive in the wild.

In the anime

File:Wynaut anime.jpg
A group of Wynaut

Wynaut first appeared in Camp Pikachu. This Bright Pokémon helped Pikachu and co. help the Pichu Brothers get to the next train to Big Town.

Wynaut also appeared during the Blackthorn City arc (Beauty is Skin Deep - Why? Wynaut!), but Jessie's Wobbuffet, Ash's Bayleef and Ash's Noctowl were the only ones to see it.

In Who, What, When, Where, Wynaut?, a plan of Team Rocket's backfired and sent everyone to Mirage Island. The only inhabitants of this island were none other than Wynaut, though it wasn't seen by any of the human characters other than May and Drew.

Trivia

  • In Generation III, Wynaut is the only baby Pokémon found in the wild in the games, on Mirage Island. Oddly, in Generation IV, Wynaut is the only baby Pokémon that can't be found in the wild.
  • Wynaut and Azurill are the first two Pokémon which are only breedable from their evolved forms if the parent is holding a certain incense.
  • Wynaut is the only baby Pokémon considered "Uber" in competitive standards.
  • Wynaut evolves the earliest of any non-Bug-type Pokémon that evolves by level alone.

Origin

Name origin

Wynaut's name is pronounced identically to the phrase "why not?" Its Japanese name is almost homophonous with the phrase そうなの sō na no, which means "really?", with only a difference in tone.

Its name, when paired with the Japanese name of its evolution, Wobbuffet, ソーナンス Sonans, makes for a potential perpetual conversation of "really?" followed by "that's the way it is," and so on, as seen in Camp Pikachu.

In other languages

  • German: Isso - A possible corruption of Is so or the German "Ist es so?" ("Is that so?").
  • French: Okeoke - A repetition of Okay.
  • Korean: 마자 Maja* / 그래용 Geuraeyong*
