Jumpluff (Japanese: ワタッコ Watacco) is a dual-type Grass/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Skiploom starting at level 27. It is the final form of Hoppip.

Contents

Biology

Jumpluff is a round, blue Pokémon with red beady eyes and small, round feet and tail. Three cotton puffs, almost as large as the body itself, extend off it: one on each arm, and one on top of its head. These puffs produce cotton spores that it can use to float in the air, and it can control its flight even in a hurricane. Three to four leaves grow at the base of the top puff.

Jumpluff drifts on seasonal winds and can use its spores to masterfully maneuver itself around the globe. It will spread spores as it floats around to create offspring. It descends if it encounters cold air currents while it is floating. Though it spends a good amount of time in the air, it is commonly sighted above open temperate grasslands.

Trivia

  • At 6.6 lbs. (3 kg), Jumpluff is the lightest Pokémon that has undergone two evolutions.
  • In Pokémon Colosseum, the shadows of Jumpluff's spores are square. In addition, the spores are always facing the same way relative to the camera, and as such, the player is only able to see one side of them. This was fixed in Pokémon XD.
  • Jumpluff and its pre-evolved forms were given their English names by Nob Ogasawara.

Origin

Jumpluff appears to be based on the final stage in the life-cycle of a dandelion. Its two hands closely resemble pom-poms, and its movements in the console games, such as Pokémon Stadium 2 and Pokémon Colosseum, also bring to mind a cheerleader.

Name origin

Jumpluff is a combination of jump and fluff. It could also be a corruption of plush, meaning a soft object or an object made of felt. The names of all stages of its evolutionary line are based on the phrase, "Just a hop, skip, and a jump away."

Watacco is a combination of 綿 wata (cotton) and 根っ子 nekko (root).
