Ribombee (Japanese: アブリボン Aburibbon) is a dual-type Bug/Fairy Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves from Cutiefly starting at level 25.

Biology

Ribombee is a tiny, insectoid Pokémon with a large head, slightly smaller body, and thin arms and legs. It is covered in fluffy, yellow hair with a white face, lower body, and a tuft of hair on its back. It has big eyes with a one white and one brown square speck in the center. Over its eyes are white hairs similar to eyelashes, and it has two black antennae. Around its neck is a brown scarf with a needle-like projection on the front. Two wings nearly as large as its body sprout from its back. The wings are white with three brown loop designs near the base. Its four thin limbs have bulbous hands or feet.

Ribombee uses its fluffy hair to hold pollen it collects from flowers. Rain turns its hair dirty and its pollen damp, so it only visits fields if the weather will remain clear. When storms are in the horizon, Ribombee hide in tree hollows and wait stock-still. The pollen and nectar its collects is used to form balls called "Pollen Puffs". These balls can be used as food or relieve tiredness with a soothing effect. The Alolan people sell Pollen Puffs as valuable nutritious supplements.[1] Pollen Puffs can also be used to attack with paralysis or dizziness, such as during Ribombee's signature move, also called Pollen Puff.

Sun It rolls up pollen into puffs. It makes many different varieties, some used as food and others used in battle.
Moon Some of Ribombee's pollen puffs are highly nutritious. They are sometimes sold as supplements.
Ultra Sun Rain makes pollen damp, so Ribombee hates rain. When it sees ominous clouds, it finds a hollow in a tree, where it waits stock-still.
Ultra Moon It can predict the weather from moisture levels and wind direction. Ribombee only reveals itself when there are a few clear days in a row.

Trivia

Origin

Ribombee appears to be based on a bee fly. It may also be based on fairies and sprites. Its "pollen puffs" may draw inspiration from fairy dust, a magical dust thought to be used by fairies.

Name origin

Ribombee may be a combination of ribbon, Bombyliidae, and bee. It may also involve rimbombante, the Spanish word for flamboyant.

Aburibbon may be a combination of 吊虻 tsuriabu (bee fly) and ribbon.
