Leavanny (Japanese: ハハコモリ Hahakomori) is a dual-type Bug/Grass Pokémon.

It evolves from Swadloon when leveled up with high friendship. It is the final form of Sewaddle.

Biology

Leavanny is a thin, yellow, bipedal insectoid Pokémon. It has a broad, split leaf around its large, round head and it has long antennae that end in semicircles. Its eyes are red with no apparent sclera. Its tiny thorax is dark green, and its long abdomen is yellow and covered in a green leaf. Its hands are long and leaf-like with a "bite" taken out of each. Its upper arms are also leaf-like, but with a vein of yellow at the top. Its thin legs are yellow with dark green, thick segments around its upper legs, making them appear armored.

Leavanny lives in forests. It is very parental and uses its cutters and a sticky silk it produces to create clothing made of leaves for small Pokémon. It also warms its eggs with fermenting fallen leaves.

Trivia

Origin

Leavanny appears to be based on both a bipedal Phylliidae and, like its prevolutions, is also based on the Epargyreus clarus caterpillar. Its leafy "dress", "collar", and "paned sleeve" arms may be based on fashion in the early 1600s. Because of the way it acts towards smaller Pokémon and its baby Sewaddle, it could also be based on a human mother as well as a female earwig. Its general body structure is also similar to that of a Choeradodis mantis, which also have laterally expanded thoraxes and abdomens.

Name origin

Leavanny is a combination of leaves and nanny. It may also derive from Levana, the ancient Roman goddess of newborn babies.

Hahakomori may be a combination of 葉 ha (leaf), 母 haha (mother), and 子守 komori (babysitting).
