Dottler (レドームシ Redoomushi) is a bug/psychic-type introduced in Generation VIII, and the evolved form of Blipbug.

Biology

Physiology

Dottler is a small dome-shaped Pokémon. Its yellow shell is large and shaped like a geometric solid with triangular flat faces. Blue dots appear where the triangles meet. Its orange head can be seen from an opening at the base of the shell, as well as two flat blue feet. Its large, light blue eyes are rimmed by darker orange markings shaped like glasses, and two blue hairs similar to Blipbug's protrude from each side of its face.

Behavior

Dottler remains stationary awaiting evolution most of the time, using its psychic powers only when necessary.

Trivia

  • Dottler is the first Pokémon who can learn three moves at once after evolving.

Origin

Dottler is based on a ladybug pupa or a standard bug cocoon mixed with a radome. Its eyes (which resemble glasses) and its face feelers (which resemble a moustache) may take inspiration from stereotypical scientists.

Etymology

Dottler comes from the words dot (as in a radar dot or the dots ladybugs have) and Doppler radar.

Redōmushi comes from radome and 虫 (mushi, bug).
