Gloom ( Japanese: クサイハナ Kusaihana) is a Grass/ Poison-type Pokémon.
A female has less spots on it's petals.
Gloom's most well-known special ability is launching a horrid-smelling pollen that has been described as smelling like a mixture of old sneakers, garbage, rotten eggs with a hint of skunk fumes.
Gloom live in grassy plains, and can also be found in tropical areas such as jungles and swamps, where the ground is rich in nutrients.

Pokémon Red and Blue / Pokémon LeafGreen The fluid that oozes from its mouth isn't drool. It is a nectar that is used to attract prey.
Pokémon Yellow Smells incredibly foul! However, around 1 out of 1,000 people enjoy sniffing its nose-bending stink.
Pokémon Gold What appears to be drool is actually sweet honey. It is very sticky and clings stubbornly if touched.
Pokémon Silver It secretes a sticky, drool-like honey. Although sweet, it smells too repulsive to get very close.
Pokémon Crystal The smell from its drool-like syrup and the pollen on its petals is so bad, it may make opponents faint.
Pokémon Ruby Gloom releases a foul fragrance from the pistil of its flower. When faced with danger, the stench worsens. If this Pokémon is feeling calm and secure, it does not release its usual stinky aroma.
Pokémon Emerald A horribly noxious honey drools from its mouth. One whiff of the honey can result in memory loss. Some fans are said to enjoy this overwhelming stink, however.
Pokémon FireRed Its pistils exude an incredibly foul odor. The horrid stench can cause fainting at a distance of 1.25 miles. Game locations

Gloom appears to resemble the nocturnal flower known as
rafflesia arnoldii, which has a foul odor.
Gloom's name is taken from the word
gloom, which refers to something depressing, since it's normally seem with a depressed face. It could also come from bloom, since it's still in the blooming stage of a rafflesia arnoldii. Its Japanese name can be taken to mean 臭い花, stinking flower.
