Bouffalant (Japanese: ブッファロン Buffaron) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Bouffalant is a large, stout, brown buffalo-like Pokémon. It has a voluminous, magnificent Afro atop its head, with two equally large horns protruding from within it. Each horn is encircled by two gold rings. It has a powerfully-built body with shaggy brown fur and a very large hump on its back, presumably used to store fat and muscle. Its pale brown face is distinctly bovine with a gray muzzle and beady yellow eyes. It has large gray hooves and a small tail. Bouffalant can knock over trains and does sometimes, and it doesn't worry about it's safety because of the fluffy fur absorbs the impact.

Evolution

Bouffalant does not evolve.

Trivia

  • Bouffalant was officially revealed on the October issue of Coro Coro on September 11, 2010.
  • Before Black and White were released, some fans believed that Bouffalant was an evolution of Tauros.
  • Bouffalant is May on the Pokémon Horoscope.

Origin

Bouffalant is based on an American buffalo or bison with an Afro hairstyle. The large hump, while present in bison and buffalo, may also allude to zebu cattle, which also have large, fatty humps on their shoulders.

Etymology

Bouffalant's English name is a combination of "bouffant" and "buffalo".

Its Japanese name is derived from バッファロー buffalo and アフロ afro.
