Oddish (Japanese: ナゾノクサ Nazonokusa) is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Oddish is a nocturnal Pokémon, using moonlight rather than the sun's rays for photosynthesis. During the day, Oddish avoids the sun's heat and brightness by burying itself into the earth, leaving only the leaves on top of its head visible above ground. This way, it disguises itself as a plant, misdirecting its carnivorous diurnal predators.

While buried, Oddish nourishes itself by absorbing nutrients from the soil using its feet, which are said to temporarily change into a root-like structure for this purpose.

If anyone pulls at Oddish's leaves and tries to uproot it while it is buried underground, Oddish will react by shrieking in a horrible voice.

Once nightfall comes, exposure to moonlight causes Oddish to become much more active. It extracts itself from the ground, and its extremities change back into the shape of legs. It then proceeds to bathe itself in the moonlight and grow, as well as wander around scattering its seeds. With the coming of dawn, the cycle repeats.

Oddish is the only Pokémon for which we know the pseudo-Latin "scientific name", as it appears in a Pokédex entry: Oddium wanderus.

Physiology

Oddish looks like a small animated plant. Its body is blue, with two small feet and red eyes. On top of its head grows a large clump of five long green leaves.

Evolution

Oddish evolves into Gloom at Level 21.

Appearances

Anime

Steven's Oddish

The Group of Oddish

Oddish has made a fair number of appearances, but all of them are more or less cameos. Oddish usually appears as a part of a group of Grass-type Pokémon.

In one notable episode, an Oddish is staying with a number of Hoppip whose owner uses them to predict the weather. The unfortunate Oddish envies the Hoppip for their ability to 'fly' in strong breezes.

Trivia

  • Oddish and Kabutops are the only two known Pokémon to have a scientific name.
  • Despite burying itself underground as Pokédex Entries state, Oddish cannot learn Dig.
  • Oddish is the first Pokémon in the Pokédex order to have a branched evolutionary family.
  • Oddish is the only Pokémon with the Run Away ability that is Grass-type.

Origins

"Oddish" is a mixture of the words "odd", which means strange and peculiar, and "radish".

Name in other languages

  • Japanese: Nazonokusa (enigmatic grass)
  • French: Mystherbe (mix of mystere (mystery) and herbe (herb))
  • Spanish: Oddish
  • German: Myrapla (mix of miracle and plant)
  • Turkish: Weiyad (corruption of the English word weed)
