Swadloon (Japanese: クルマユ Kurumayu) is a dual-type Bug/Grass Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Sewaddle starting at level 20 and evolves into Leavanny when leveled up with high friendship.

Contents

Biology

Swadloon is a round, yellow Pokémon inside of a cloak of leaves. It drapes the leaves over itself and draws them closed around its body, so only a large, crescent slit remains for its face to appear. This leafy cloak keeps the Pokémon warm. Under its cloak are darker green, limp leaves which frame the sides of Swadloon's face and trail down on the sides of its body. The top of the cloak has two semicircular leaves that form a V shape. On its back are the veins of the leaf as well as a bit at the bottom tip of the cloak resembling a rounded tail. Swadloon lives on the forest floor and converts fallen leaves into nourishment, which helps the surrounding plant life grow.

Trivia

Origin

Swadloon appears to be based on a leaf-rolling insect pupa or prepupa such as a Pamphilius sawfly caterpillar or a lepidopteran prepupa such as a silver-spotted skipper. Many holometabolous insects fold leaves over themselves for camouflage and shelter in their immobile pupal stage, eventually use silk to stick the leaves together and form its chrysalis. It also resembles a walking leaf and the nest of weaver ants. The appearance of Swadloon hiding in its blanket bears some resemblance to the stereotypical portrayal of people suffering from hikikomori (acute social anxiety disorder) syndrome in Japanese media. Its evolution into Leavanny (whose Japanese name is two kana away from "hikikomori") being caused by friendship may also be a lesson.

Name origin

Swadloon may be a combination of swaddle (to wrap a baby in cloth) and cocoon.

Kurumayu may be a combination of 包む kurumu (to wrap up) and 繭 mayu (cocoon).
