Aipom (Japanese: エイパム Eipam) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Ambipom when leveled up while knowing Double Hit.

Biology

Aipom getting a banana

Aipom is a monkey-like Pokémon with a three-fingered hand at the end of its tail. Its fur is purple, while the skin of its face, inner ears, belly, feet, and the tip of its tail are beige. Its face usually has a cheeky smile and round, blue eyes. With its round ears, Aipom's head is disproportionately large compared to its body. Atop its head is a cowlick that is longer on females than males. Unlike its feet, Aipom's arms are simple, purple stubs.

Aipom uses its powerful tail freely and cleverly for many purposes. The tail is strong enough to anchor Aipom to a branch and suspend the rest of its body in the air, but also delicate enough to pick fruit and manipulate objects. Aipom has been known to wrap its tail around tree branches as it sleeps so it does not fall. Since Aipom uses its tail so much, its actual arms are not as dexterous and become clumsy over time. Aipom lives high in the treetops of tropical, temperate, and even boreal forests, using its tail for balance as it swings from branch to branch. In Alola, Bounsweet is its favorite food.

In Throwing the Track Switch, Ash traded her to Dawn for Buizel because Aipom loved competing in Pokémon Contests while Buizel was more interested in Gym battles.

Trivia

  • Clemont uses a gadget based on Aipom's tail, called the "Aipom Arm".

Origin

Aipom appears to be based on a generic New World monkey and the exaggerated concept of their prehensile tail. Aipom also shares its large smile with a cymbal-banging monkey toy. It may vaguely reference the ahuizotl, a creature of Aztec mythology with monkey hands and a fifth human hand on its tail.

Name origin

Aipom and Eipam may be a combination of ape and palm (referring to the hand on its tail). It may also refer to a pom-pom.
