Skiploom (Japanese: ポポッコ Popocco) is a dual-type Grass/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Hoppip starting at level 18 and evolves into Jumpluff starting at level 27.

Biology

Skiploom is a plant Pokémon that has a round, green body with stubby arms, feet, and tail. It has large, flat ears on the sides of its head and oval, red eyes with no pupils. On top of its head is a yellow bloom with a white center. Skiploom spreads its petals to absorb as much sunlight as possible. The bloom on top of its head opens and closes as the temperature fluctuates and its flower blossoms when the temperature rises above 64 °F (18 °C). Because of this, it is sometimes used as a thermometer. It floats in the air to try to get closer to the sun, but closes its flower and immediately hides under the shade of a tree when it rains. Skiploom lives in temperate grasslands. As seen in the games, the bloom on its head can turn clockwise.

Trivia

  • Skiploom's normal color and Shiny color is reverse to its pre-evolution, Hoppip.
  • Skiploom and its evolutionary relatives were given their English names by Nob Ogasawara.[1]

Origin

Skiploom appears to be based on a bulb and a flower, specifically a dandelion.

Name origin

Skiploom may be a combination of skip and bloom or plume. The names of all stages of its evolutionary line may be based on the phrase: "Just a hop, skip, and a jump away."

Popocco may be a combination of 蒲公英 tanpopo (dandelion) and 根っ子 nekko (root).
