Vileplume (Japanese: ラフレシア Ruffresia) is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Gloom when exposed to a Leaf Stone. It is one of Oddish's final forms, the other being Bellossom.

Biology

Vileplume is a blue, bipedal Pokémon with rudimentary hands and feet. It has beady red eyes and a small mouth. On its head is massive red flower with an orange-brown center. Vileplume's flower is said to have the largest petals in the world and is almost too heavy for the Pokémon itself to support. The rounded petals of the flower are red and covered with white spots. A female Vileplume has fewer, but larger, spots on its petals. It can shake, flap, or burst its petals into bloom with a bang in order to release clouds of pollen. This pollen is highly allergenic to humans and toxic to other Pokémon; Vileplume uses it to paralyze its prey. It can also utilize these petals in its former signature move, Petal Dance. Being the result of an evolution via Evolution stone, Vileplume is rarely found in the wild, though they can be found in grassy plains. It is often mistaken for local flowers in the wild.

Trivia

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Vileplume, like Gloom, is based on the Rafflesia arnoldii, a foul-smelling flower known as the world's largest single flower. This Pokémon more strongly resembles the flower than Gloom, which may represent the budding stage of the Rafflesia. Vileplume's flower also looks alike several other species of Rafflesia, notably cantleyi, keithii, pricei, manillana, and speciosa, of which the petal shape is a closest match. Female Vileplume may be based on Rafflesia hasseltii, as its petals have distinctively larger blotches than other species of Rafflesia.

Name origin

Vileplume is a combination of vile and plume or plumose (possessing filaments or branches that give a feathery look).

Ruffresia is a corruption of Rafflesia.
