Budew (Japanese: スボミー Subomie) is a dual-type Grass/Poison baby Pokémon.

It evolves into Roselia when leveled up with high friendship during the day, which evolves into Roserade when exposed to a Shiny Stone.

Biology

Budew is a bipedal, rosebud-like Pokémon. Its face is yellow with small, slit-like eyes. It appears to be wearing a green bib, and has and triangular, stubby yellow feet. When the two vines that are on top of its head open up, a big spot can be seen on each. One vine has a blue spot, while the other has a red spot. It keeps its buds closed during the cold winter, but opens them again in the spring and releases pollen. The pollen it scatters induces harsh sneezing and runny noses. It lives near clean pools and ponds.
