Indeedee (Japanese: イエッサン Yessan) is a dual-type Psychic/Normal Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Indeedee is a dark purple and white bipedal Pokémon that differs in appearance depending on their gender. Both forms have white faces, rounded heads and pear-shaped bodies, and white hands and feet with three digits on each of them. The males have upward-turned spiral horns, blue markings in-between their eyes, a generally more navy body, and more white around the legs. Females have downward-turned spiral horns, pink markings above their eyes, a white body, and darker legs. These markings all give them the appearance of butlers and maids.

These Pokémon willingly serve people and other Pokémon, as they derive energy from feelings of gratitude. They sense emotions by touching their horns to determine other's needs and serve them better. Males are skilled at being valets while the females are supposed to be excellent babysitters. Indeedee is always bustling around, searching and serving those with happy feelings. The Indeedee never leaves its Trainer's side. It uses its psychic power to predict its Trainer's actions and take care of everyday needs. Indeedee dislikes conflict and will throw things at anyone who disturbs its territory using its psychic powers.

In Generation IX, Indeedee is the only known Pokémon that can have Psychic Surge as an Ability.

Forms

Male and female Indeedee differ by moves they learn and their stat spreads. Male Indeedee can have Inner Focus as an ability, while female Indeedee can have Own Tempo.

Trivia

  • Indeedee shares its category with Kirlia and Mesprit. They are all known as the Emotion Pokémon.
  • Indeedee is the only Pokémon to have different Egg moves depending on gender.
  • Indeedee shares several similarities with Meowstic. Both are Psychic-type Pokémon with gender differences and have different movesets and Pokédex entries depending on their gender. Male Indeedee and Meowstic are exclusive to Sword, while female Indeedee and Meowstic are exclusive to Shield. However, both gender forms of Indeedee can be obtained by breeding, while both gender forms of Meowstic can be obtained by evolving Espurr of the appropriate gender.
  • Both forms of Indeedee were designed by Saya Tsuruta.[1]
  • In Generation IX, prior to the Version 2.0.1 update of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Female Indeedee was unable to learn Trick Room via TM, with the only way of learning it was through a Tera Raid encounter.

Origin

Indeedee may be based on Lares, the household deities in ancient Roman religion, said to protect the house in exchange for worship and gratitude. Lares are commonly depicted in pairs and holding rhyta, horn-like containers that often depict Satyrs, half-goat creatures from Greek mythology. It may also draw inspiration from brownies, the household spirits from British folklore said to come out at night to perform domestic and farming tasks. Their gender-specific motifs may also be based on housekeepers, with its male form having traits of a butler and its female form having traits of a maid.

Name origin

Indeedee may be derived from indeed and the phrase, "Yes indeedy."

Yessan may be a combination of yessir and ~さん -san (honorific title). It may also be derived from "yes, and...".
