Wooloo (Japanese: ウールー Wooluu) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It evolves into Dubwool starting at level 24.

Biology

Wooloo is an ovine Pokémon with a thick coat of white wool that makes it look spherical. Its small, black head pokes out of the front of the wool, along with two short horns. Wooloo's eyes have yellow sclerae, black irises, and white, horizontal pupils. Two large ears are visible behind gray strings of wool that resemble braided pigtails. Its hooved legs are short and mostly hidden by the wool, along with a tail that is barely visible on its rear end.

Wooloo have an extremely fluffy body which can serve as a cushion, allowing it to survive even a fall from a cliff without any injuries. Its fur grows continuously, being able to fully grow back in just three months after it is completely shaved. The fur is a specialty product in Galar, being used for clothing and carpets; the clothing made from Wooloo's wool has a remarkable strength. If its fur grows too long, Wooloo will be unable to move. Wooloo live in herds and are known to mimic the actions of their herd leader or Trainer. They have a friendly disposition and dislike conflict, and can escape from enemies by simply rolling away.[1] Yamper is used to herd Wooloo.
