Floragato (Japanese: ニャローテ Nyarote) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It evolves from Sprigatito starting at level 16 and evolves into Meowscarada starting at level 36.

Biology

Floragato is a bipedal, feline Pokémon. Its body is mostly covered in long light green fur, with green ear tips and a short fluffy tail. It has a growth of green fur-like leaves on its neck,[1] which extends at the front and droops down to its hips, resembling a poncho. Dark green colorations adorn the lower part of this neck fur, along with its hands, feet, and face; the latter is patterned to resemble a mask. Its face also has pink eyes and a small pink nose. Floragato's fur can change in hardness depending on its mood — its fur becomes sharp as needles when it is ready to battle. Each of its hands and feet has a round, pink paw pad and three digits, with visible claws on its fingers.

There is a vine tucked inside Floragato's fur, which has a hard, round, pink flower bud on the end. Floragato wields the vine and swings the bud to attack its opponents.[2] When not in use, the bud is kept on the left side of Floragato's chest, near its neck.

Floragato is intelligent and dexterous. It is also mischievous and likes showing off, desiring attention and companionship from others. If its Trainer refuses to give it attention, Floragato may misbehave by pulling pranks, such as tying the Trainer with its vine while they are asleep.[2]

Evolution

Floragato evolves from Sprigatito and evolves into Meowscarada.

Trivia

Origin

Floragato seems to be based on a cat or an Iberian lynx. In particular, its face, hand, and feet coloration could draw inspiration from that of a Siamese cat or Himalayan cat. The flower bud and vine resemble a yo-yo and the bud being kept on Floragato's chest may be a reference to a boutonnière, a flower worn on clothing. The way Floragato conceals and uses the vine is reminiscent of a sleight of hand. The boot patterns on Floragato's legs, together with its mischievous and cunning nature, may reference Puss in Boots, a famous fairy tale in Europe about an anthropomorphic trickster cat who wore boots. Its rogue-like behavior could also be based on the Picaresque novel, a famous form of Spanish literature depicting rogue archetypes.

Name origin

Floragato may be a combination of flora or flor (Spanish and Portuguese for flower) and gato (Spanish and Portuguese for cat).

Nyarote may be a combination of ニャー nyā (onomatopoeia for meowing) and brote (Spanish for sprout or plant bud).
