Misdreavus (Japanese: ムウマ Muuma) is a Ghost-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

Biology

Physiology

Misdreavus is a small Ghost Pokémon with a dark bluish-green coloring and yellow eyes with red irises. With no arms or legs, its body ends in a small "skirt". Around its neck are spherical, jewel-like, red pieces that give it the appearance that it is wearing a necklace. Misdreavus also has gaseous, long, flowing hair with faded magenta-purple highlights.

Behavior

Misdreavus, whether owned by a Trainer or not, are nocturnal creatures that enjoy pranking humans and other Pokémon for its own amusement, usually giving them jump-scares or eerily screeching in a wailing manner. They may even go as far as pulling and biting a person's hair just to entertain themselves. When their pranks succeed, they cannot help but give out a gloating grin. Nonetheless, they cannot deal with people who are braver and more courageous, so they can get outwitted easily.

Misdreavus normally lurk around in murky forests, caves, graveyards, or abandoned residences.

Natural abilities

The red jewel-pieces can absorb fear from the ones they have pranked, which they take in as nutrients.

Misdreavus absorbs fear and life forces from other living beings as their own food.

Evolution

Misdreavus can evolve into Mismagius by use of the Dusk Stone.

Appearances

Anime

Goh's Misdreavus.

Trivia

  • Misdreavus is the only Ghost type Pokémon to be revealed in Generation II.
  • Although its appearance seems feminine, a male Misdreavus can be found in the wild at a 50% rate.
  • Excluding evolutions, Misdreavus is one of four plain Ghost Pokémon, with the others being Shuppet, Duskull and Yamask.
  • Even though Misdreavus is the "Screech Pokémon", it cannot learn Screech by leveling up.
  • Misdreavus appears in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, where she runs a Photo Studio in the Cove Town.
  • Misdreavus is the first pure Ghost-type Pokémon to be introduced.

Origin

Misdreavus is based off of the Nukekubi, a floating head that is similar in nature to a vampire. The Nukekubi is also known to let out terrifying screeches, a trait it shares with Misdreavus.

Etymology

Misdreavus' name is a combination of the words mischievous, dream and reave or reap.

Its Japanese name, Muuma, is literally the word nightmare. It also means "a demon of dreams". It could also be a corruption of the word murmur as in ghost murmurs.
