Skiploom (Japanese: ポポッコ Popocco) is a dual-type Grass/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Hoppip starting at level 18 and evolves into Jumpluff starting at level 27.

Biology

Skiploom is a plant Pokémon that has a round, green body with stubby arms, feet, and tail. It has large, flat ears on the sides of its head and oval, red eyes with no pupils. On top of its head is a yellow bloom with a white center. Skiploom spreads its petals to absorb as much sunlight as possible.

It floats in the air to try to get closer to the sun. The bloom on top of its head opens and closes as the temperature fluctuates and its flower blossoms when the temperature rises above 64 °F. Because of this, it is sometimes used as a thermometer. When it rains, Skiploom closes its flower and immediately hides under the shade of a tree to avoid getting wet. Skiploom lives in grasslands.

Trivia

  • Skiploom's normal color and Shiny color is reverse to its pre-evolution, Hoppip.
  • Skiploom is the last Pokémon to be mentioned in the Pokérap GS
  • Skiploom, its pre-evolution, and its evolution were given their English names by Nob Ogasawara.

Origin

Skiploom appears to be based on a bulb and a flower, specifically that of a dandelion.

Name origin

Skiploom is a combination of skip and bloom. It may also derive from loom (an instrument used in weaving) or a corruption of plume or plumose (possessing filaments or branches that give a feathery look). The names of all stages of its evolutionary line are based on the phrase, "Just a hop, skip, and a jump away."

Popocco is a combination of 蒲公英 tanpopo (dandelion) and 根っ子 nekko (root).
