Appearances

Anime

Bailey has two Bellossom named Belle and Bella who debuted in Flower Power.

Trivia

  • Bellossom grows lighter when it evolves, being 12.8 pounds (5.8 kg) while Gloom is 19.0 pounds (8.6 kg). It is slightly heavier than Oddish, which is 11.9 pounds (5.4 kg).
  • Bellossom's Shiny sprites in Generation II had a blue face (resembling Oddish), but it was later changed to purple in Generation III onward. This was most likely to avoid racial controversy.
  • Bellossom is the only pure-type Pokémon that evolves from a dual-type Pokémon.
  • Despite being based on a hula dancer, supposedly being plentiful in the tropics, and having a connection to the sun, wild Bellossom can never be obtained in the Alola region in Generation VII; in fact, every member of its evolutionary line (including Oddish, which has a connection to the moon) is nowhere to be found. This is rubbed in the player's face in multiple ways: first when an NPC shows up with one under her ownership, second when a Bellossom appears in an Aether Paradise cutscene, and third when cardboard cutouts depicting the Pokémon can be found.
    • To twist the knife further, the Pokémon and its line can be found in the Galar region, a place that was described as "too cold" for many Pokémon to live in by Game Freak. One of its Pokédex entries in Generation VIII (a recycling of its older entries) even explicitly describes it as being plentiful in the tropics.

Origin

Bellossom is based on different types of flowers and a hula dancer. It may also incorporate elements of belly dancing.

Etymology

Bellossom comes from blossom, bell, and possibly belly (seeing how it may be based on belly dancers). It may also come from bella (Spanish for pretty) or awesome.

Its Japanese name, Kireihana, comes from kirei (pretty), rei (bell), and hana (flower). Its name also translates into beautiful.
