Lileep (Japanese: リリーラ Lilyla) is a dual-type Rock/Grass Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It is resurrected from a Root Fossil and evolves into Cradily starting at level 40.

Biology

Lileep is a somewhat plantlike Pokémon with eight dark-tipped, pink tentacles protruding from an opening on top of its head. Inside the pitch-black opening are two glowing, yellow eyes. The remainder of its head is purple with yellow eyespots resembling targets. The head is connected to the body by means of a yellow stem. The body itself is purple and semi-spherical. Four stubby roots anchor this Pokémon firmly to the rocks of its home on the sea floor.

In ancient times, it lived in warm seas. It waves its tentacles around to disguise itself as seaweed in order to attract prey, which is swallowed whole after being entangled. Lileep has been extinct for 100 million years, but specimens can be revived from Root Fossils.

Trivia

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Lileep may be based on crinoids (also known as sea lilies), extant marine animals. Crinoid fossils are particularly abundant, possibly inspiring Lileep's status as a fossil Pokémon. Its tentacles seem to be based on those of the sea anemone.

Name origin

Lileep may be a combination of lily and peep (it seems to peep out from the darkness). The latter part of its name may also derive from deep (coming from the depths of the ocean floor) or sleep (as they have been sleeping as Fossils for over one hundred million years).

Lilyla may be a play on lily and possibly lila (Spanish for lilac, referring to its purple color).
