Amoonguss (Japanese: モロバレル Morobareru) is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Foongus starting at level 39.

Generation IX introduced Paradox Pokemon Brute Bonnet that appears to be inspired by Amoonguss.

Biology

Amoonguss is a mushroom-like Pokémon. It has a huge, gray, stem-like body; fierce-looking eyes; a tiny mouth with large pink lips; and two arms. It has large caps on its head and arms that resemble Poké Balls. The cap on its head has a few warts.

Amoonguss is a carnivore, and uses the Poké Ball-like patterns on its arms to lure in prey, although it doesn't work too well in most cases. It also blows poisonous spores at its opponents. These spores can grow into mushrooms wherever they land if they are not washed off quickly. Amoonguss rarely moves, preferring to stand near any dropped Poké Balls. Amoonguss prefers damp places, and can be found mainly in long grass with only their mushroom cap head protruding from it, generally close to water. Brute Bonnet shares a resemblance to Amoonguss.

Trivia

Origin

Amoonguss may draw inspiration from Amanita muscaria or mushrooms of the Agaricus genus. Like Voltorb and its evolved form, the idea of them being mistaken for the standard Item Balls is similar to a mimic, a monster archetype commonly found in RPGs.

Name origin

Amoonguss may be a combination of amanita (a genus of mushroom) and fungus or humongous (huge). Together with its pre-evolution, their names are a corruption of the phrase, "Fungus among us." This is confirmed by Ali the Student in North Province (Area Two) in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Morobareru is a combination of もろに moro ni (completely) and ばれる bareru (slang for "[for a secret] to be exposed"), referring to how it no longer convincingly looks like a Poké Ball.[1]
