Aipom (Japanese: エイパム Eipam) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Ambipom when leveled up while knowing Double Hit.

Biology

Aipom getting a banana

Aipom is a monkey-like Pokémon with a three-fingered hand at the end of its tail. Its fur is purple, while the skin of its face, inner ears, belly, feet, and the tip of its tail is beige. On its face are a usually cheeky smile and round, blue eyes. Supplemented by its round ears, Aipom's head is disproportionately large compared to its body. Atop its head is a cowlick that is longer on females than males. Unlike its feet, Aipom's arms are simple, purple stubs.

Aipom uses its powerful tail freely and cleverly for many purposes. The tail is strong enough to anchor Aipom to a branch and suspend the rest of its body in the air, but also delicate enough to pick fruit and manipulate objects. Aipom has been known to wrap its tail around tree branches as it sleeps so it does not fall. Since Aipom uses its tail so much, its actual arms are not as dexterous. Aipom lives high in the treetops, using its tail for balance as it swings from branch to branch.

Major appearances

Ash's/Dawn's Aipom

Multiple Aipom appeared in Slaking Kong, one of which stole Ash's hat. In Channeling the Battle Zone, Ash captured the aforementioned Aipom. Her behavior is similar to that of Ash's Chikorita: attention-seeking, very naughty at times, and occasionally jealous. However, she developed a close bond with Ash. In Throwing the Track Switch, Ash traded her to Dawn for Buizel because Aipom had a love of Contests and Buizel was more interested in Gym battles. Aipom evolved into Ambipom in Journey to the Unown! while battling the attacking Unown.

Aipom first appeared in Spell of the Unown under the ownership of Lisa.

In the manga

Aipom in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Aibo

In Pokémon Adventures, Gold has an Aipom named Aibo, one of the Pokémon he grew up with at his house in New Bark Town. Because it was not very powerful, it was typically used in situations that needed its dexterity or for distracting opponents with Double Team. In the battle against the Masked Man, it showed its worth by having Sudobo inherit the speed boost of its Agility to restrain the villain. It was also very skilled with pulling fast ones or using Gold's equipment to send out multiple Pokémon at once, as displayed when it spun Gold's billiard cue around to power up Exbo's Blast Burn attack.

In the HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter, it was revealed to have evolved into an Ambipom. Its evolution was later depicted by flashbacks.

Trivia

  • Aipom is the only Pokémon that evolves by learning Double Hit; all other Pokémon that evolve after learning a move besides Lickitung share that specific method of evolution with at least one other Pokémon.

Origin

Aipom appears to be based on a monkey and the exaggerated concept of a prehensile tail. It may be specifically based on the squirrel monkey, which is similar in appearance. Aipom also shares its large smile with a cymbal-banging monkey toy. It is also similar to an ahuizotl, a creature of Aztec mythology with monkey hands and a fifth human hand on its tail.

Name origin

Aipom and Eipam may be a combination of ape and palm (referring to the hand on its tail). It may also refer to a pom-pom.
