Hoppip (Japanese: ハネッコ Hanecco) is a dual-type Grass/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Skiploom starting at level 18, which evolves into Jumpluff starting at level 27.

Biology

Hoppip is a round, pink plant Pokémon with long green leaves growing on top of its head. The leaves on its head have ragged edges, similar to a dandelion. It has big, triangular ears with dark insides, and beady yellow eyes that lack pupils. Its arms and legs are stubby, and it has a short tail with a rounded tip. There is a circular yellow pad on the underside of each foot.

Hoppip's body is very light, and it is easily lifted off the ground by winds and will drift in the air. Hoppip can sense approaching strong winds. In order to avoid being blown away, it clusters and links leaves with other Hoppip or grips the ground firmly with its feet. However, it enjoys gentle breezes. Hoppip tends to be carried by the winds across vast distances, and thus can be found all over the world except in cold regions. It lives in temperate grasslands, fields, mountains, and even urban environments.

Evolution

Hoppip evolves into Skiploom, which evolves into Jumpluff.

(For specifics on this Pokémon's evolution in the games, refer to Game data→Evolution data.)

Main series

Sugimori reference sheet for the anime

Major appearances

Seven Hoppip debuted in Foul Weather Friends, under the ownership of Mariah. She used them to predict the weather. They were later targeted by Team Rocket.

In Who's Flying Now?, James bought a Hoppip from the Magikarp salesman, believing it to be a Chimecho, but the ruse was uncovered quickly. It flew away on its own.

Minor appearances

In Tricks of the Trade, a Hoppip was at the Pokémon Swap Meet in Palmpona.

In Beauty and the Breeder, a Pokémon Breeder's Hoppip participated in a Pokémon breeding competition.

Trophy information

"A Cottonweed Pokémon. Its adorable appearance has captured the hearts of many fans. It's 1'04" in height, which is the same as Pikachu, but it's incredibly light, weighing only 1.1 pounds. Because it's so light, it often huddles with other Hoppip to keep itself from being blown away by strong winds. It evolves into Skiploom."

Trivia

Hoppip's early design
  • An early design of Hoppip had no arms and legs and was dark-colored, resembling a black cat.
  • The English names of Hoppip and its evolutions were partially coined by Nob Ogasawara.[1][2]

Origin

Hoppip appears to be based on a bulb or root. The leaves on its head resemble leaves of a dandelion. Its body also slightly resembles a cat. This may directly reference the cat's ear plant, which closely resembles the dandelion despite the two species not being related. When moving, its leaves move around like the propellers of a helicopter.

Name origin

Hoppip may be a combination of hop or hippity-hop and pip (small hard seed) or pipsqueak. The names of all stages of its evolutionary line is based on the phrase: "Just a hop, skip, and a jump away."[1]

Hanecco may be a combination of 葉 ha (leaf), 跳ねる haneru (to jump or hop), or 羽 hane (wing), and 根っ子 nekko (root). Its name may also be a pun on 猫 neko (cat), given its cat-like ears and tail.
