Capsakid (Japanese: カプサイジ Capsaiji) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It evolves into Scovillain when exposed to a Fire Stone.

Biology

Capsakid is a short, green, bipedal plant Pokémon with no arms and a very short, stubby tail. It has a four-leaved dark green collar on its neck. Its head has a white, round cap radially split into six at the rim. This cap resembles an egg shell or the calyx found on fruits, and has a small, bulbous green top. Its face has black eyes and an orange coloration on the tip of its beak-like mouth, which also contains a single front tooth on the upper jaw. Capsakid's front tooth falls out naturally, and is used as a spice in traditional Paldean cooking. Capsakid creates spicy chemicals inside its body by using energy from sunlight, which it uses to power its moves.

Evolution

Capsakid evolves into Scovillain.

Scarlet The more sunlight this Pokémon bathes in, the more spicy chemicals are produced by its body, and thus the spicier its moves become.
Violet Traditional Paldean dishes can be extremely spicy because they include the shed front teeth of Capsakid among their ingredients.

Trivia

Origin

Capsakid's category and appearance suggest it may be based on an immature chili pepper such as the habanero (as alluded to in its Japanese category). The splitting flower over the back of its pepper-shaped head is also based on how peppers grow; the budding berry will grow from inside the flower, causing its petals to cover the pistil of the developing pepper in a manner similar to Capsakid's cap. Its cap and beak also make it resemble the kappa. It also resembles a newly hatched baby dinosaur or chick, with its white cap resembling a piece of egg shell. The cap also resembles a sunbonnet, hats worn by babies to protect them from sunburn, as Capsakid is still vulnerable to harsh sunlight-boosted Fire-type attacks, unlike its evolution. Additionally, there is even a chili pepper named the "Scotch bonnet", for its resemblance to bonnets.

Name origin

Capsakid may be a combination of capsaicin (active component of chili peppers) or Capsicum (the genus of chili peppers), kappa, and kid.

Capsaiji may be a combination of capsaicin, kappa, and 児 ji (child).
