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 a 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 is somewhat skilled at countering enemy attacks, although doesn't do so as well as Wobbuffet can. Like Wobbuffet, Wynaut are incapable of harming foes outside of counterattacks. Wynaut have high endurance, which they hone by squeezing up against one another on moonlit nights.

Behavior

Wynaut are always smiling, even when they're not happy. As a result, it communicates its emotions through its tail. If a Wynaut is slapping the ground with its tail, it is angry. On moonlit nights, hordes of Wynaut will gather to squeeze up against one another. The intent of this activity is to strengthen their endurance and allow for more powerful counterattacks. They are drawn to fruit gardens by the scent and will pick fruit with their earlike arms.

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.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

It loves eating sweet fruit. The fragrance of a fruit garden will attract Wynaut in large numbers.

The recurring 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 is one of the two baby Pokémon that evolves at a specific level that does not evolve at level 30, the other being Tyrogue.
  • Wynaut is the only baby Pokémon that evolves at a specific level and requires an incense in order to be bred.

Origin

Like its evolution, Wobbuffet, Wynaut is probably based on an Okiagari-koboshi doll, a Japanese traditional doll with squinted eyes that stands back upright when pushed over. It is a symbol of perserverence.

Name origin

Wynaut's name is pronounced identically to the phrase "why not?"

Sohnano is almost homophonous with the phrase そうなの sō na no, which means "really?", with only a difference in tone. This 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 it so?").
  • French: Okeoke - A repetition of Okay.
  • Korean: 마자 Maja* / 그래용 Geuraeyong*
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 小果然 Xiǎo Guǒ Rán - "小" means small or young. "果然" means "really/indeed/as expected" or "if indeed". 果然 is also a reference to 果然翁 (Wobuffet).
