Trevenant (Japanese: オーロット Ohrot) is a dual-type Ghost/Grass Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves from Phantump when traded.

Biology

Trevenant is a ghostly Pokémon resembling a slender brown tree. Its shadowy black body is visible through gaps in the tree, and a single, red eye is visible through a hole near the top. There is a wavy, horn-like branch on either side of its head, both dotted with small, green leaves, and a smaller branch on its forehead. On top of its head is a cluster of green leaves. It has two arms with gnarled branches similar to its horns on the elbows. Around its wrists are cuffs of green leaves and it has three claw-like fingers on each hand. Instead of legs, it has six roots similar to a spider's legs.

Trevenant can control other trees by using its roots as a nervous system. It uses this ability to trap people who harm its forest and will curse people who cut down trees. However, it is very kind to forest-dwelling creatures and Pokémon that reside in its body. Trevenant hates Fire-type Pokémon, so lumberjacks usually bring them to repel it. It is even believed that Trevenant has consumed people, although it is unclear whether this is fact or rumor.

Trevenant and its pre-evolved form Phantump are the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Forest's Curse.

Evolution

Trevenant evolves from Phantump.

Major appearances

Trevenant made its main series debut in Forging Forest Friendships!, where it kidnapped Ash. It wasn't malicious, though: it only wanted help rescuing its friends Bonsly and Sudowoodo, who had been trapped by Team Rocket.

A Trevenant appeared in Pikachu and the Pokémon Music Squad. It noticed the fight between Meowth, Chespin, and a Torchic over a Pecha Berry.

Three Trevenant appeared in A Timeless Encounter!, with two of them being normal and the third being a Totem Pokémon nicknamed Elder. Elder kept sneezing after getting a flock of Cutiefly stuck in its leaves. Ash and a young Professor Kukui freed the Cutiefly and used their Torracat and Litten, respectively, to warm up some of the Cutiefly. Afterwards, Elder rewarded Ash with a Firium Z. When Ash returned to the present, Elder was revealed to have passed away. It reappeared in a flashback in Pikachu's Exciting Adventure!.

Minor appearances

Trevenant debuted in Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction.

A Trevenant appeared as an image in A Performance Pop Quiz!.

A Trevenant appeared in The Winding Path to Greatness!, attacking Ash, Goh, and Allister for disturbing its home forest.

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon have the same Egg Group combination as Trevenant and its pre-evolution.
  • Of all the Pokémon that evolve via trading (including with held items), Trevenant is the only one who can also be directly caught in the wild in the same generation in which it was introduced.
  • Trevenant and its pre-evolution were designed by James Turner.[1]

Origin

Trevenant is possibly based on a kodama, the spirits of trees that sometimes inhabit old-aged trees. Its stripe-like indentation on its body is very similar to shimenawa, used to mark spiritual habitation, who are often seen tied around kodama. It is also similar to other types of tree and nature spirits and deities, such as dryads. Trevenant's fierce protection of forests may be a reference to hamadryad, or could perhaps be a nod to the concept of protected sacred groves. Its single eye may possibly be a reference to cyclopes or the mountain-dwelling yamawarawa. Its general body shape may have been based on the shape of the kanji 木, meaning wood or tree. Trevenant may also be inspired by the treelike Ents from the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien. Its Shiny coloration is based on the birch tree, known for its gray-and-white bark, with its leaves representing a tree in the autumn.

Name origin

Trevenant may be a combination of tree, revenant, and possibly treant.

Ohrot may be a combination of 大 ō (big) and ロット rot (as in a root rot).
