Wynaut (Japanese: ソーナノ Sohnano) is a Psychic-type baby Pokémon.

It evolves into Wobbuffet starting at level 15.

Biology

Wynaut is a small, bipedal Pokémon covered in blue fur. Its head is spherical with ear-like, fingerless arms on either side and a bulbous growth on its forehead. It has a wide mouth with a serrated upper jaw and a pink tongue. Its eyes appear closed, each curving upward to a point in the center. The fur on its body ends in a zigzag pattern, extending over its short legs. Wynaut's tail is long and completely black, ending in a round, flattened tip with a white, eye-like spot.

Wynaut tends to live in caves and travel in herds. It will test its endurance by squeezing up against other Wynaut at night. In doing so, it strengthens itself, toughens its spirit, and learns to deal powerful counterattacks. When angered, it will slap the ground with its tail. As it loves to eat sweet fruit, it is also drawn to fruit gardens.

Major appearances

Wynaut first appeared during the Blackthorn City arc (Fangs for Nothin' - Why? Wynaut!), but Jessie's Wobbuffet, Ash's Bayleef and Ash's Noctowl were the only ones to see it.

A Wynaut also appeared in Camp Pikachu. This Bright Pokémon helped Pikachu and co. help the Pichu Brothers get to the next train to Big Town. At the end of the episode, the same Wynaut called several other Wynaut, apparently its friends, to help the gang move a cart in order to reach the train.

In Who, What, When, Where, Wynaut?, a plan of Team Rocket's backfired and sent everyone to Mirage Island. The only inhabitants of this island were none other than Wynaut.

Minor appearances

A Wynaut was seen among other baby Pokémon in The Brockster Is In!, and, like the others, was nursed back to health by Brock's newly-evolved Chansey.

One also appeared in Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade.

A Wynaut appeared in Alexa's magazine in The Journalist from Another Region!.

Trivia

Origin

Like its evolution, Wobbuffet, Wynaut is probably based on an Okiagari-koboshi doll, a Japanese traditional doll with squinted eyes that stands back upright when pushed over. It is a symbol of perseverance.

Name origin

Wynaut is a play on the phrase, "Why not?"

Sohnano is nearly homophonous with the phrase そうなの sō na no, which means, "Really?" or "Is that so?" with only a difference in tone. It is played off by its evolution, Wobbuffet, whose Japanese name of Sonans is homophonous with the interjection そうなんす sō na-n-su, which roughly means, "That's the way it is." Together, they make for a potential perpetual conversation of, "Really?" followed by, "That's the way it is," and so on, as seen in Camp Pikachu.

Other languages' names for the Pokémon in this family, due to the fact that they were introduced in different generations, do not feature this pun.
