Morelull (Japanese: ネマシュ Nemasyu) is a dual-type Grass/Fairy Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves into Shiinotic starting at level 24.

Biology

Morelull is a small, white Pokémon similar to a mushroom. It is tied with Budew, Foongus, and Shaymin as the shortest Grass-type. It has large, black eyes with pale green half-circle markings on the outer sides. Small bumps ring the top of its head, similar to hair. Its head is much larger than its thin, stem-like body. At the base, the stem splits into three green roots that act as feet. Three large mushrooms sprout from the center of its head. Each mushroom has a thin white stem and a darker ring of color around the base of the cap. The center and largest mushroom is light pink, while the other two mushrooms are smaller and a light purplish-blue. At night, Morelull can make the spores filling its mushroom caps glow.

Morelull likes dark damp areas, but changes locations every night avoid depriving the plants in any one area of too many nutrients. In addition to locomotion, its roots are also used to communicate with other Morelull.[1] When in danger, it scatters spores that burst into bright, glittering sparks. The pulsing light of the spores can induce drowsiness. It is rumored that once, when a group of Morelull were disturbed and all threw out their spores at once, a plane passing overhead suffered a near brush with disaster.[2]. The caps on on Morelull's head are a delicacy for Pokémon living in the forests. Morelull's caps can grow back overnight.

Before Generation VIII, Morelull and its evolved form were the only known Pokémon that could learn the move Strength Sap by leveling up.

Trivia

  • Morelull is the only Pokémon that can have Rain Dish that cannot learn Rain Dance.
  • Morelull can be seen as a counterpart to Paras. Both share the Grass type, the same base stat total of 285, evolve at Level 24, both are mushroom-based Pokémon and thus can learn Spore, and both can be found in the wild in Pokémon Sun and Moon, taking the place of the other depending on the time, with Morelull being found at night and Paras during the day.
  • Morelull is tied with Cleffa and Igglybuff for having the lowest base Speed stat of all Fairy-type Pokémon.

Origin

Morelull may be based on bioluminescent mushrooms such as those of the genus Mycena, although its name suggests inspiration from the genus Morchella. Its Fairy type may be due to fairy rings, or it may possibly be a reference to fairy fire.

Given that some of the foreign names of its evolution include the word "lamp", and that Morelull shine lights and put people to sleep, it may also be based on a nightlight.

Name origin

Morelull may be a combination of morel and lull.

Nemasyu may be a combination of 寝 ne (sleep) and mushroom.
