Origin
Hoppip is a round, pink Pokémon with long green leaves growing on top of its head. The leaves on its head have ragged edges, similar to a {{wp|dandelion}}. It has big, triangular ears with dark insides and beady yellow eyes that lack pupils. Its arms and legs are stubby, and it has a short tail with a rounded tip. There is a circular yellow pad on the underside of each foot.
 
Hoppip's body is very light, and it is easily lifted off the ground by winds and will drift in the air. Hoppip can sense approaching strong winds. In order to avoid being blown away, it clusters and links leaves with other Hoppip or grips the ground firmly with its feet. However, it enjoys gentle breezes. Hoppip lives in {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|intemperate grasslands}}, although some also drift through fields, mountains, and even urban environments.

===Origin===
Hoppip appears to be based on a {{wp|bulb}} or {{wp|root}}. The leaves on its head resemble leaves of a {{wp|dandelion}}. Its body also slightly resembles a {{wp|cat}}.
 
====Name origin====
Hoppip may derive from ''hop'', ''hip-hop'', or ''hippity-hop'', indicating that it jumps or flies through the air; ''pip'', a type of seed; or ''pipsqueak''. The names of all stages of its evolutionary line are based on the phrase, "Just a hop, skip, and a jump away."
 
Hanecco may be any combination of 葉 ''ha'' (leaf), 跳ねる ''haneru'' (to jump or hop), or 羽 ''hane'' (wing), and 根っ子 ''nekko'' (root). Its name may also be a pun on 猫 ''neko'' (cat), given its cat-like ears and tail.
