Bouffalant (Japanese: バッフロン Buffron) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Bouffalant is a bovine Pokémon with a large, dark afro on its head. Two large, curving horns, each with two golden growths resembling rings, protrude from the afro. It has a shaggy brown hide that ends at its knees and does not cover its face. A large, gray nose sits at the end of its short, beige snout, and its yellow eyes are partly hidden by its hair. There are black tear markings directly below its eyes. Each of its beige legs has a single, gray hoof and its tail ends in a stubby tuft of fur.

A territorial Pokémon, it will headbutt anyone that attempts to invade its territory. However, in the anime, it has been known not to attack those with an afro hairstyle. Protected by its afro, which absorbs damage, its headbutts are strong enough to derail a train and send it flying. It can also destroy a car with just a Headbutt. The more hair a Bouffalant has on its head, the higher positions it has in the herd. A herd of Bouffalant consists of 20 individuals. For unclear reasons, a Bouffalant loses its hair from its head should it ever betray its herd.

Bouffalant is the only known Pokémon to learn Head Charge.

Major appearances

A Bouffalant debuted in Trip's flashback Ash and Trip's Third Battle!, under the ownership of Alder. In the flashback, Trip remembered seeing it as a child, which inspired him to become a Pokémon Trainer. Bouffalant physically debuted in Ash Versus the Champion!, where it faced Pikachu in a battle with Ash. Alder fell asleep during the battle, resulting in no one winning. Alder later used Bouffalant in a battle against Trip and his Serperior, and he was able to win.

Multiple Bouffalant appeared in Baffling the Bouffalant!, where they attacked anyone in their territory who wasn't wearing an afro.

Minor appearances

Multiple Bouffalant was seen in the prologue of White—Victini and Zekrom. They were startled by the arrival of a dust storm and began to stampede towards Luisa's village. However, the nearby Damon summoned Reshiram to easily destroy the dust storm, thus placating the Bouffalant in time.

A Bouffalant appeared in A Maractus Musical!, where it was taking part in the Pokémon Performance Competition alongside an Elgyem.

Multiple Bouffalant appeared in Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice.

Multiple Bouffalant appeared in Team Eevee and the Pokémon Rescue Squad!, where they were among the Pokémon living in a ranch at Virgil's house.
