Cherubi (Japanese: チェリンボ Cherinbo) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves into Cherrim starting at level 25.

Biology

Cherubi is a small cherry-like Pokémon with a round, deep-pink body with two stubby feet. It has beady eyes and a purple-red stripe running down part of its face. Cherubi has a short stem with two big, green leaves and a second, much smaller head growing out of it. This second head is vestigial in terms of function, but it contains nutrients that contribute to Cherubi's growth as its initial source of food. As the second head is apparently edible, several Pokémon have been seen trying to pluck it off. When the second head begins to bloom it means Cherubi is close to evolving. It has been known to sun bathe on warm days. When it is about to evolve, the second head starts to wilt. Cherubi mainly photosynthesizes, and it is attracted to honey.

Major appearances

Gardenia used a Cherubi in a battle against Ash in The Grass-type Is Always Greener where it battled against Turtwig where Gardenia was able to learn quite a bit about Turtwig. Cherubi was used again in The Grass Menagerie where it once again battled Turtwig but its speed forced Ash to recall Turtwig for Staravia and was defeated.

Another Cherubi appeared in Battling a Cute Drama! under the ownership of Marilyn.

Minor appearances

Multiple Cherubi made an appearance in The Rise of Darkrai.

Cherubi was also seen under Reggie's care in Lost Leader Strategy!.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP031 Cherubi Dawn's Pokédex Cherubi, the Cherry Pokémon. All of the nutrients needed for evolution are contained in its small ball. Cherubi becomes redder as it is exposed to sunlight, and is almost ready to evolve once the smaller ball buds.
DP125 Cherubi Ash's Pokédex Cherubi, the Cherry Pokémon. Cherubi's attached small ball holds the nutrients needed for its evolution.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Cherubi first appeared in Ring Around the Roserade I. Gardenia used a Cherubi alongside her Roserade in a Double Battle against Platinum's Prinplup and Ponyta. After Piplup evolved into Prinplup, Cherubi's Grass Knot became more effective against the heavier Pokémon, leaving the Penguin Pokémon in a difficult situation. However, Platinum took advantage of the cover that the knots gave and the holes that Roserade's poison whips created to deliver a finishing Blizzard that defeated both her Pokémon.

A Trainer's Cherubi appeared in Tackling Togekiss.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Gardenia's Cherubi also appears in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!, as Hareta's first opponent in Win with Teamwork!!. It attempted to use Leech Seed on Hareta's Shinx, but was quickly felled by the cub's Bite.
