Flora is a term used to refer to the plant life in a given area, as well as fungi and bacteria. Much like the real world, various types of plants and fungi exist within the Pokémon World, most notably in the form of Grass type Pokémon but also in the form of items such as berries and apricorns.

Like the real world, flora plays a vital part of the ecosystem of the Pokémon World, providing an essential food source for both Pokémon and humans.
