Swadloon (Japanese: クルマユ Kurumayu) is a dual-type Bug/Grass Pokémon.

It evolves from Sewaddle starting at level 20 and evolves into Leavanny when leveled up with high friendship.

Biology

Swadloon is a round, yellow Pokémon inside of a cloak of leaves. It drapes the leaves over itself and draws them closed around its body, so only a large, crescent slit remains for its face to appear. This leafy cloak keeps the Pokémon warm. Under its cloak are darker green, limp leaves which frame the the sides of Swadloon's face and trail down on the sides of its body. The top of the cloak has two semicircular leaves that form a V shape. On its back are the veins of the leaf as well as a bit at the bottom tip of the cloak resembling a rounded tail. Swadloon lives on the forest floor and converts fallen leaves into nourishment, which helps the surrounding plantlife grow.

Trivia

Origin

Swadloon is based on the caterpillar of the Epargyreus clarus during chrysalis. Epargyreus clarus fold leaves over themselves for shelter as they age and, when cocooning, eventually use silk to stick the leaves together and form its chrysalis. The appearance of Swadloon hiding in its blanket bears some resemblance to the stereotypical portrayal of people suffering from hikikomori (acute social anxiety disorder) syndrome in Japanese media. Its evolution to Leavanny (whose Japanese name is two kana away from "hikikomori") being caused by friendship may also be a lesson.

Name origin

Swadloon may be a combination of swaddle (to wrap a baby in cloth) and cocoon.

Kurumayu may be a combination of 包む kurumu (to wrap up) and 繭 mayu (cocoon).
