Origin
 
It may also be based on ''{{wp|Selaginella lepidophylla}}'', a plant that forms {{wp|tumbleweed}}s; and {{wp|Medusa}}, a {{wp|gorgon}} of {{wp|Greek mythology}}. In addition, it may be based on a {{wp|Green Man}}, a motif represented as a face surrounded by leaves and vines.
 
Its [[Pokédex]] entries state that its vines will entangled with its surroundings. This may be a reference to {{wp|thigmotropism}}, a biological reaction plants have towards contact that encourages them to coil around objects they touch as they grow, allowing stability in their stems and branches.
