Swirlix (Japanese: ペロッパフ Peroppafu) is a Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves into Slurpuff when traded holding a Whipped Dream.

Biology

Swirlix with both of its feet visible

Swirlix is a small, round Pokémon covered with fluffy white fur. It has reddish pink eyes with white pupils, round ears with light pink tips, a tiny reddish pink nose, and is often seen with its tongue poking out of the corner of its mouth. In between its ears is a more prominent tuft of fur. Poking out of the bottom of its fur is its light pink tail. Its feet are usually tucked up in its fur, but when they are visible, they are seen to be a light pink and have three toes. Swirlix only eats sweets, which makes its fur as sticky as cotton candy. It can entangle its opponents with white sticky thread.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Swirlix appears as a Poké Ball summon in both versions of the game. It uses Cotton Spore to slow down nearby opponents.

Trophy information

NA: Swirlix, a Fairy-type Pokémon, has a serious sweet tooth. However, all those sweets make its fur really sticky. If you trade a Swirlix while it holds Whipped Dream, it'll evolve into a Slurpuff. In Smash Bros., Swirlix likes to use Cotton Spore. Getting hit by this attack will seriously slow you down.

PAL: Swirlix has a serious sweet tooth - it eats so many sweets that even its fur is sticky and sweet. Not that you should try eating its fur. In this game, it'll use Cotton Spore to slow down all of the other fighters. See? Definitely not edible. Fun fact: if you trade Swirlix while it's holding a Whipped Dream, it'll evolve!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Swirlix returns as a Pokémon summoned from the Poké Ball, retaining the same behavior from the previous game.

Trivia

Origin

Swirlix may be based on cotton candy, previously known as fairy floss (a name still used in Australia), which may be the inspiration for its type. The way Swirlix entangles foes in its sticky threads may be a reference to European folktales in which eating fairy food traps mortals in the fairy realm. Considering its lolling tongue, nose, ear-like circular "bumps" on its head, and its tail, it may also be based on a dog, more specifically a Bichon Frise or poodle. Its white body and pink, ear-like bumps may also reference folk beliefs that one can distinguish a fairy dog by its white fur and red ears.

Name origin

Swirlix may be a combination of swirl and a corruption of licks.

Peroppafu may be a combination of ペロペロ peropero (onomatopoeic sound for licking) and puff.
