Rowlet (Japanese: モクロー Mokuroh) is a dual-type Grass/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves into Dartrix starting at level 17, which evolves into Decidueye starting at level 34.

Along with Litten and Popplio, Rowlet is one of three starter Pokémon of Alola available at the beginning of Pokémon Sun and Moon.

Along with Litten and Popplio, it was the second Generation VII Pokémon to be revealed to the public on May 10, 2016.

Biology

Rowlet is a small, avian Pokémon resembling a young owl with a round body and short legs. Its plumage is primarily brown with a white underside and facial disc. The facial disc itself is in the shape of two overlapping circles. It has large black eyes and stubby beak. The top part of its beak is white, while the lower half is an orange-brown. Its feet have two forward-facing toes and one backward facing toe; they are the same color as the lower half of its beak. Two leaves sprout form its chest, arranged so that they resemble a bowtie. Additional leaves line the undersides of its wings and form its tail. A nocturnal Pokémon, it stores energy during the day through photosynthesis. It approaches opponents by silently gliding, before unleashing a volley of kicks. This Pokémon is able to rotate its head almost 180 degrees, and has excellent night vision. [1]

Trivia

  • Rowlet is the lightest starter Pokémon.
  • Rowlet is tied with Froakie as the smallest unevolved starter Pokémon.

Origin

Rowlet is based on an owl, sharing the most similarities with members of the Tytonidae family — species collectively known as "barn owls" that have heart-shaped faces and dark eyes. In particular, it closely resembles the common barn owl, which was introduced to Hawaii. Alternatively, it may be inspired by the Eastern grass-owl or African grass-owl, hence its Grass-typing.

Name origin

Rowlet may be a combination of round or arrow and owlet.

Mokuroh may be a combination of 木 moku (wood) and 梟 fukurō (owl).
