Chikorita (Japanese: ハッパ Happa) is a Grass-type Pokémon from the 1997 Spaceworld demo of Pokémon Gold and Silver.

It is presumed to evolve into Bayleef at an unknown level, which evolves into Meganium starting at level 32.

Along with Honōguma and Kurusu, Chikorita is one of three starter Pokémon available at the beginning of the 1997 Spaceworld demo of Pokémon Gold and Silver. Unlike other Pokémon games, the starter is chosen randomly when the demo is started.

Chikorita is present in the final version of the game.

Biology

Chikorita is a small, pale green Pokémon with a darker necklace of buds. It has a large head in proportion to the rest of its body with large eyes. It has four short legs with a single nailed toe on each and a small tail. Its most distinguishing feature is the large leaf on the top of its head.

Chikorita appears identical to how it does in the final version of the game.

  • Bold indicates a move that gets STAB when used by Chikorita
  • Italic indicates a move that gets STAB only when used by an evolution of Chikorita

Trivia

  • Chikorita, like other early-game Pokémon in the demo of Pokémon Gold and Silver, is missing evolution data for its first evolution, likely to prevent Spaceworld attendees from seeing certain unrevealed evolved forms.

Origin

Chikorita has similarities to sauropods. Its shape and appearance also alludes to that of a pear, or a Belgian endive, a type of chicory.

Name origin

Chikorita is a combination of chicory (a flowering plant) and ita (the feminine form of the Spanish suffix for something small or young).

Happa comes from 葉っぱ happa (leaf).

Bayleef (Japanese: ハナモグラ Hanamogura) is a Grass-type Pokémon from the 1997 Spaceworld demo of Pokémon Gold and Silver.

It is presumed to evolve from Chikorita at an unknown level, and it evolves into Meganium starting at level 32.

Bayleef is present in the final version of the game.

Biology

Bayleef appears radically different in the demo than in the final game. Rather than appearing as an intermediate stage between Chikorita and Meganium as its final design did, Bayleef barely resembles its evolutionary relatives. It resembles a green blooming flower, with a head in the middle. The head has three stamens sprouting from the top of its head, with anthers at their tips. There are two nubs on the sides of its head that resembled small stubby arms. Below its face is a marking which resembled an eye. The petals of the flower-like body are pointed upwards, and each petal has three spots on it. The stem of the flower is small in comparison to the petals.

Trivia

Spaceworld '97 fan art
  • Its appearance was vaguely known prior to the demo leak via fan art drawn by an attendee of the Spaceworld '97 event.
  • Kurusu, like other early-game Pokémon in the demo of Pokémon Gold and Silver, is missing evolution data for its first evolution, likely to prevent Spaceworld attendees from seeing certain unrevealed evolved forms.

Origin

Name origin

Kurusu possibly comes from cruise.

  • Bold indicates a move that gets STAB when used by Hoothoot

Trivia

  • Hoothoot is only Flying-type in the demo, rather than Normal/Flying, as it is in the final game.
  • Hoothoot, like other early-game Pokémon in the demo of Pokémon Gold and Silver, is missing evolution data for its first evolution, likely to prevent Spaceworld attendees from seeing certain unrevealed evolved forms.

Origin

Hoothoot seems to be based on a combination of an owl—more specifically the Eagle Owl—and a clock, as its crest's prongs are shaped like the hands of a clock; in addition, it has the ability to keep track of time.

Name origin

Hoothoot is derived from hoot, an onomatopoeia for the sound an owl makes. It may also be a combination of hoot and cuckoo, as in a Cuckoo clock, referring to Hoothoot's keen ability to keep track of time.

Hoho is derived from hoo, another onomatopoeia for the sound an owl makes.

Biology

Noctowl is a brown bird-like Pokémon with a round body and a white or cream underside. It has long brown wings and no discernible neck. Its crest features two slim white feathered 'horns' that reach out over both of its eyes from its small beak, and a large black banded marking extends from behind each eye to wrap around the back of its head. Like its pre-evolution, Hoothoot, it stands on only one foot, which has three clawed digits.

Trivia

Origin

Mareep appears to be based on a sheep. It is likely that its electric aspect comes from how wool builds up static charges. It, and its evolutions, may also have been based on the title of the science fiction novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.

Name origin

Mareep may be a combination of Mary (from the nursery rhyme "Mary Had a Little Lamb") and sheep. Mareep is also an anagram of ampere, a unit of electric current.

Pachimē may be based on パチパチ pachipachi an onomatopoeia for crackling or blinking and メー an onomatopoeia for the sound a sheep makes.

Trivia

Origin

Flaaffy appears to be based on a sheep with patchy wool. It is likely that its electric aspect comes from how wool builds up static charges. Its evolutionary family may also have been based on the title of the science fiction novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.

Name origin

Flaaffy may be a combination of fluffy and baa (the sound sheep make). Aa may also be a reference to an AA battery, given Flaaffy's Electric type.

Mokoko may derive from 羊毛 yōmō (wool) and a corruption of もこもこ mokomoko (fluffy).

Trivia

Origin

Ampharos resembles a sheared sheep that its evolution line leads up to as they lose wool with each evolution. It also shares traits with a lighthouse, such as its height, stripes and the beacon on the top; the two also share a name. It, as well as its pre-evolutions, may have been based on the title of the science fiction novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.

Name origin

Ampharos is a combination of ampere or amp (a measure of electrical current) and pharos (Greek for lighthouse). The name may also incorporate amph- (Greek for both or on both sides) in reference to the two orbs on its head and tail. Its body shares a similar shape to an amphora, as well as a similar name.

Denryu can be taken to mean 電流 denryū (electric current) or 電竜 den ryū (electric dragon), and it may incorporate 電球 denkyū (light bulb), referring to its tail.

Biology

Mikon is a small orange fox-like Pokémon. On top of its head is a flame-like tuft of white fur with red or orange tips. Its long fluffy tail has a fire-like coloration and ends in a curl, with two smaller curls branching off of either side.
