Nuzleaf (Japanese: コノハナ Konohana) is a dual-type Grass/Dark Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Seedot starting at level 14 and evolves into Shiftry when exposed to a Leaf Stone.

Biology

Nuzleaf is a bipedal Pokémon with a single green leaf atop its head. The leaf is smaller on the female. This Pokémon is mostly brown with a beige mask marking on its face. Its bulky thighs are also beige and have thin striations, and there are what appear to be two nipples on its chest. It has thin arms with mitten-like hands. If its long, pointed nose is grabbed, Nuzleaf will lose its power.

Using the leaf on its head as a flute, it makes music with leaves that creates a sense of unease in people. However, it can also play comforting melodies. Nuzleaf lives in tropical forests and is skilled at climbing, but it will come out of the forest to frighten people. It has an odd power that manifests as the move Extrasensory; its former signature move.

Trivia

  • Nuzleaf shares its category with Impidimp. They are both known as the Wily Pokémon.
  • Despite several of Nuzleaf's Pokédex entries stating that it uses the leaf on its head as a flute, Nuzleaf has never been able to learn the move Grass Whistle.

Origin

Nuzleaf seems to be based on a sprouting acorn and a tengu, Japanese yōkai with long noses who use their supernatural powers to protect forests and play cruel tricks on people. Its habit of playing a grass flute is reminiscent of Pan, the Greek god of nature known for playing reed pipes. Its wooden, humanoid body and long nose are also reminiscent of Pinocchio.

Name origin

Nuzleaf may be a combination of nuzzle (to rub with the nose) or nose and leaf.

Konohana may be a combination of 子 ko (child), 木の葉 konoha (leaves), and 鼻 hana (nose). It can be read as 巨の鼻 konohana (big nose).
