Petilil (チュリネ Churine) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V. It is Cottonee's counterpart.

Biology

Physiology

Petilil is a tiny plant Pokémon that appears to resemble a bulb. It has a mainly light green leafy body and a small white face surrounded by a hood-like formation of green petals or leaves. Three long bright green leaves sprout from the top of its head. It has small ovular brownish red eyes and no visible mouth. The underside of its body, just below its head, is short and green, with little stubby edges. It has a small collar of darker green leaves. It has tiny arms (as seen in the Pokémon musical).

Behavior

Petilil favor places with clean soil and water. They have mass migrations whenever their surrounding environment degrades. They love their leaves being pruned regularly and can grow into a fine plump shape. The deeper their leaves, the healthier they are.

Natural Abilities

The leaves on Petilili's head are bitter, but they can either revitalize a person who eats them or cause him/her to feel dizzy. If its leaves are dried under the sun and boiled as an infusion, anyone who drinks it can regain vigor, so Petilil are welcomed by the elderly. The leaves can also be boiled into a liquid that can be used as a bug repellent.

Habitat

Petilil live in places with nutritious and fertile soil.

Evolution

Petilil evolves into Lilligant with the use of a Sun Stone.

Trivia

  • Petilil was officially revealed on the October issue of Coro Coro on September 11, 2010.
  • Unlike Petilil's counterpart, Cottonee, Cottonee can be both male and female while Petilil is always female and can't be male. Both of them evolve by Sun Stone and in their evolved forms, they can learn new moves at lv 10, 28 and 46.

Origin

Petilil appears to be based on a tulip bulb.

Etymology

Petilil’s English name seems to be a combination of “petal”, “petunia”, and “lily” or “little”.

Its Japanese name, Churine, may be a combination of チュリップ churippu (tulip), 百合根 yurine (lily bulb), and 根 ne (root).
