Bounsweet (Japanese: アマカジ Amakaji) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves into Steenee starting at level 18, which evolves into Tsareena when leveled up while knowing Stomp.

Biology

Bounsweet is a small Pokémon resembling a mangosteen. Most of its body is pinkish-purple with a short, white skirt around its waist, which resembles the flesh of a mangosteen when it is cut open. It has beady yellow eyes and two tiny legs. On top of its head is a green calyx. This structure consists of four leafy green formations and a short stem.

This Pokémon exudes a delicious smell from its entire body, which has made it popular with people of the Alola region. This scent has a calming effect on people, so they are often used as living air fresheners. However, its sweet scent has also caused it to be swallowed whole by other Pokémon, especially Toucannon. It is too sweet for human consumption, but its sweat can be used to make a juice.

While fleeing danger, Bounsweet skips along in a way that does not convey its desperation. As a result, no one ever comes to help it. It has been known to drive away enemies by rotating its calyx, but it becomes dizzy afterward.[1]

Sun A delectable aroma pours from its body. They are often swallowed whole by Toucannon lured by that wafting deliciousness.
Moon Although it's too sugary for human consumption, Bounsweet's sweat can be watered down into a juice with just the right amount of sweetness.
Ultra Sun Because of its sweet, delicious aroma, bird Pokémon are always after it, but it's not intelligent enough to care.
Ultra Moon It tries to resist being swallowed by a bird Pokémon by spinning the sepals on its head. It's usually a fruitless attempt.

Sword Its body gives off a sweet, fruity scent that is extremely appetizing to bird Pokémon.
Shield When under attack, it secretes a sweet and delicious sweat. The scent only calls more enemies to it.
