Smoliv (Japanese: ミニーブ Minive) is a dual-type Grass/Normal Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It evolves into Dolliv starting at level 25, which evolves into Arboliva starting at level 35.

Biology

Smoliv is a small Pokémon resembling an olive. It has a round green body with two stubby legs. It has beady black eyes with white pupils and a jagged mouth. A few leaves surround a yellow fruit with a hole on top of its body.

Inside its fruit, Smoliv stores oil made from nutrients it gathers through photosynthesis, which allows it to go for a week without eating or drinking. Smoliv's oil is bitter and astringent enough to make someone flinch, and thus is not suitable for consumption. When startled or attacked, Smoliv will shoot its oil out to slow its opponent, and then it will run away. It prefers dry and sunny climates, and tends to spend its time sunbathing.[1]

Smoliv and its evolved forms are the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Terrain Pulse by leveling up.

Evolution

Smoliv evolves into Dolliv, which evolves into Arboliva.

(For specifics on this Pokémon's evolution in the games, refer to Game data→Evolution data.)
