Tropius (Japanese: トロピウス Tropius) is a dual-type Grass/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Tropius is a large, sauropod-like Pokémon with a brown body wrapped in green leaves on its chest and head. It possesses large, broad green leaves on its back, which it uses for flight and for sugar production via photosynthesis. Despite being very big and bulky, it is surprisingly maneuverable in the air. It has a long neck with a thin black line around it. It uses its neck for reaching treetops to gorge on its most favored fruit. Since it ate only this kind of fruit continuously, the fruit began to grow around its neck. These yellow, banana-like fruits can be picked and consumed by other Pokémon or humans, and grow twice a year because of the rapid production of sugar in Tropius's leaves. Its feet have toenails the same color as its fruit.

In warm areas, there are ranches that raise Tropius. In Alola, its fruit is especially sweet compared to those of other regions. It lives in tropical jungles.

In Odd Pokémon Out, a Tropius living on Camomile Island challenged Ash's Grovyle for the love of Nurse Joy's Meganium.

Trivia

  • Tropius is exactly the same size as another Grass-type Pokémon, Venusaur. Both have a height of 6'7" (2.0 m) and a weight of 220.5 lbs. (100.0 kg).
  • Tropius was the first Pokémon to be distributed in a Cherish Ball, with the Shokotan Tropius distribution.
  • Tropius shares its category with the Bounsweet evolutionary family. They are all known as the Fruit Pokémon.
  • Of all the Generation IV Pokémon, Tropius is the only one that is exclusive to Platinum.

Origin

Tropius resembles a generic sauropod, a long-necked, herbivorous dinosaur, combined with a banana plant.

Name origin

Tropius is a combination of tropical and saurus (Greek for lizard). It may also be a pun of tropism: phototropism is when plants move to catch more sunlight, and if a plant is not planted upright, the roots will use gravitropism to grow towards gravity and find water.
