Whimsicott (Japanese: エルフーン Elfuun) is a dual Grass/Fairy Pokémon, and prior to Generation VI, a pure Grass-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Cottonee when it is exposed to a Sun Stone.

Biology

Whimsicott is a small, brown bipedal Pokémon with a vaguely ram-like appearance. There is a cotton-like substance covering its back, neck, and forehead. Behind it is a green, star shaped section similar to the area where a plant connects to its produce. It has orange, oval-shaped eyes and green, curled horns or ears. Whimsicott can manipulate its body to pass through cracks, no matter how narrow. Because of this, Whimsicott is a notorious prankster, moving things and leaving cotton balls behind. It also can ride through whirlwinds.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Whimsicott appears as a trophy in the 3DS version of the game.

Trophy information

Ever found a white ball of fluff you couldn't quite explain? That was likely the work of a Whimsicott. Slipping through the tiniest of cracks like the wind, they like to move furniture around and leave little fluff balls all over the place. Though they look like sheep, they're actually Grass types, and their fluff is more like cotton than wool.

Trivia

  • Whimsicott represents April in the Unova horoscope.
  • As of Generation VI, no other Pokémon have the same type combination as Whimsicott and its pre-evolution Cottonee.
  • Whimsicott is the fastest Fairy-type Pokémon, with a base Speed stat of 116.
  • Whimsicott and Cottonee are the only Pokémon with a double weakness to the Poison type and are two of the only four Pokémon to have ever had one, alongside Paras and Parasect, which had one only in Generation I, because Bug was weak to Poison at that time.

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 風 (wind) or typhoon.
