[[File:Gloom eyes.png|thumb|left|220px|Gloom's eyes as seen in the anime]]
Gloom is a blue, bipedal Pokémon with rudimentary hands and feet. ItOn hasits orangehead leaves andis a reddish-brown flower growingwith fromspherical itspetals headsurrounded by four reddish-brown leaves. The flowerpetals hasare large,a roundeddark petalsreddish-brown and have white spots. TheA female displays only a single large spot on each petal, while thea male will have more,many smaller spots. ItsGloom's eyes are wide and often appear closed and its lips are thin and purple.
 
Gloom trickles sticky nectar from its mouth with the appearance and consistency of drool. This can be used as a fertilizer for plants. Both this nectar and the flower on Gloom's head release a foul odor strong enough to induce fainting in humans over a mile (1.6 kilometers) away. However, it can also attract prey, and even a very small number of humans find it pleasing. This odor is a key ingredient for some perfume production. When it is in danger, the odor worsens, but it will not emit its odor if it feels safe. Gloom lives in {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Grassland Pokémon|grassy plains}}. In the past, {{m|Petal Dance}} was its [[signature move]].
