Espurr (ニャスパー Nyasupaa) is a Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

Biology

Physiology

Espurr is a small bipedal feline Pokémon that has circular, unblinking pinkish-purple eyes with round deep purple pupils. Its body is covered in lavender-colored fur. Its paws and ears are tipped with white fur, and it has a short curled tail. Beneath Espurr's folded ears are yellow ring-shaped glands that releases its psychic powers. When it is not battling, Espurr's ears are folded tightly against its head, covering its psychic glands in order to keep its intense psychokinetic powers from leaking out.

Behavior

Espurr is a rather self-restraining or someone could say as, "too empathetic" to let itself be bothered with others. The reason why it always shut its ears is so that it could control its psychic powers. It is most of the time a loner. It is also fairly independent and prefers to move on its own pace.

Evolution

Espurr can evolve into Meowstic starting at level 25.

Pokédex entries

  • X

    The organ that emits its intense psychic power is sheltered by its ears to keep power from leaking out.

  • Y

    It has enough psychic energy to blast everything within 300 feet of itself, but it has no control over its power.

  • Omega Ruby

    The organ that emits its intense psychic power is sheltered by its ears to keep power from leaking out.

  • Alpha Sapphire

    It has enough psychic energy to blast everything within 300 feet of itself, but it has no control over its power.

  • Sword

    Though Espurr's expression never changes, behind that blank stare is an intense struggle to contain its devastating psychic power.

  • Shield

    There's enough psychic power in Espurr to send a wrestler flying, but because this power can't be controlled, Espurr finds it troublesome.
