Shroomish (Japanese: キノココ Kinococo) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Breloom starting at level 23.

Biology

Shroomish is a small Pokémon similar to a mushroom. It has beady black eyes and a half-triangle-shaped mouth. Its upper body is beige with frilled segments along the bottom and a small opening at the top. There are green spots marking its upper body, while its lower body is completely green. It has small, round feet and no visible arms or hands. When it senses danger, it shakes its body and scatters toxic spores from the top of its head. These spores can make trees and weeds wilt and cause whole-body pain if inhaled. Shroomish lives in tropical forests. During the day, it hides under fallen leaves in the shade. It eats composted soil in forests, which is made up of fallen, rotten leaves.

Trivia

Origin

Shroomish appears to be based on a mushroom, particularly a puffball or an earth star. It may also be based on a dinosaur egg due to its round shape, its color scheme matching that of a Pokémon Egg, and its evolved form Breloom's resemblance to certain dinosaurs.

Name origin

Shroomish may be derived from mushroom and the suffix -ish (almost like) or skirmish (brief battle).

Kinococo may be a combination of 茸 kinoko (mushroom) and 子 ko (child).
