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.

Major appearances

Tropius made its main series debut in From Brags to Riches, under the ownership of Dominick. He used the Fruit Pokémon and a Swalot in his battle against Ash's Corphish and Torkoal. Tropius and Torkoal knocked each other out when their Solar Beam and Overheat attacks connected and created an explosion.

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

Trivia

  • Tropius shares its height (6'7"/2.0 m), weight (220.5 lbs./100.0 kg) and Egg Groups (Monster and Grass) with another Grass-type Pokémon, Venusaur.
  • 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 Pokémon available in Generation IV, Tropius is the only one that is exclusive to Platinum.

Origin

Tropius resembles a generic sauropod, a clade of long-necked, herbivorous dinosaurs, combined with a banana plant. Its tropical characteristics and sauropod-like body may also be inspired by the Mokele-Mbembe, a cryptid creature said to live in the Congo River Basin, most often described as a sauropod.

Name origin

Tropius may be a combination of tropical and -saurus (common suffix in names of dinosaurs and extinct reptiles derived from the Ancient Greek word for lizard). It may also involve tropism (orientation of plants in response to a particular environmental stimulus).
