===Physiology===
+
Sunkern is a mostly yellow, seed-like Pokémon with a small sprout growing out of its top. It has triangular, spike-like protrusions on top of its head, encircling the sprout. Its body has three broad, brown, vertical stripes. Two of the stripes start jaggedly above Sunkern's dark eyes and continue downward. The other stripe is directly below Sunkern's mouth. Since Sunkern's eyelids are brown, the brown streak patterning appears uninterrupted when Sunkern's eyes are closed.
Sunkern is a mostly yellow, seed-like Pokémon with a small sprout growing out of its top. It has {{DL|List of Pokémon by body style|Pokémon consisting of only a head |no visible arms or legs}}. Sunkern has triangular spike-like protrusions on top of its head, encircling the sprout. Sunkern's body has three broad brown vertical stripes. Two of the stripes start jaggedly above Sunkern's dark eyes, continuing downward. The other stripe is directly below Sunkern's mouth. Since Sunkern's eyelids are brown, the brown streak patterning appears uninterrupted when Sunkern’s eyes are closed.
 
   
====Gender differences====
+
Sunkern is known to be very weak. Aware of its weakness, it only feeds until it evolves. However, it feeds on only the dew from under the leaves of plants. It tries to move as little as possible, since it tries to conserve all the nutrients it has stored in its body for evolution. If attacked, it shakes its leaves at the attacker. Sunkern occasionally falls from the sky on early mornings for unknown reasons. A year after a cold summer, the population of Sunkern explodes. Sunkern can be found in {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Grassland Pokémon|temperate, grassy meadows}}.
None.
 
   
===Special abilities===
+
==In the anime==
At this stage of development, it is (statistically speaking) the weakest Pokémon in the game, with a base stat total of only 180. Although it has been stated that its only means of defending itself is violently thrashing its leaves at the attacker, it is capable of using a variety of {{type|Grass}} moves.

  +
===Major appearances===
  +
Sunkern debuted in ''[[EP187|Moving Pictures]]''. {{Ash}}, {{an|Brock}}, {{an|Misty}}, and [[Todd Snap]] found it frozen in a field. Ash eventually evolved it using his [[Sun Stone]] from ''[[EP161|The Bug Stops Here]]'', and it summoned more {{p|Sunflora}} so that [[Sophia]] and [[Marcello]] could take a picture for their {{wp|Golden jubilee|golden anniversary}}.
   
===Behavior===
+
===Minor appearances===
Sunkern have a tendency to fall from the sky on early mornings, though usually without any predictability. Sunkern tries to move as little as it possibly can, since it tries to conserve all the nutrients it has stored in its body for evolution. A year after a cold summer, the population of Sunkern explodes.

Sunkern (Japanese: ヒマナッツ Himanuts) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Sunflora when exposed to a Sun Stone.

Biology

Sunkern is a mostly yellow, seed-like Pokémon with a small sprout growing out of its top. It has triangular, spike-like protrusions on top of its head, encircling the sprout. Its body has three broad, brown, vertical stripes. Two of the stripes start jaggedly above Sunkern's dark eyes and continue downward. The other stripe is directly below Sunkern's mouth. Since Sunkern's eyelids are brown, the brown streak patterning appears uninterrupted when Sunkern's eyes are closed.

Sunkern is known to be very weak. Aware of its weakness, it only feeds until it evolves. However, it feeds on only the dew from under the leaves of plants. It tries to move as little as possible, since it tries to conserve all the nutrients it has stored in its body for evolution. If attacked, it shakes its leaves at the attacker. Sunkern occasionally falls from the sky on early mornings for unknown reasons. A year after a cold summer, the population of Sunkern explodes. Sunkern can be found in temperate, grassy meadows.

Trivia

  • Sunkern is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 180.
  • Sunkern has the lowest base HP of all Grass-type Pokémon, is tied with Lotad for the lowest base Defense stat of all Grass-type Pokémon, is tied with Bellsprout and Seedot for the lowest base Special Defense stat of all Grass-type Pokémon, and has the lowest base stat total of all Grass-type Pokémon.
  • Sunkern shares its category name with Bulbasaur and its evolutions. They are all known as the Seed Pokémon.
  • Sunkern's official artwork more closely resembled its Shiny form in Gold and Silver than its regular form. This was somewhat rectified in Crystal, although the artwork was still more similar to its Shiny sprite; this discrepancy was fully rectified in Generation III.
  • In The Official Pokémon Handbook 3, published by Scholastic Corporation, Sunkern's data says its height is 0'01" when it is actually 1'00".
  • Sunkern has the highest average Performance of any unevolved Pokémon.

Origin

Sunkern is based on a shooting sunflower seed.

Name origin

Sunkern is a combination of sunflower and kernel.

Himanuts may be a combination of 向日葵 himawari (sunflower) and nuts. It may also refer to 夏 natsu (summer).
