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

Biology

Physiology

Petilil is a tiny plant Pokémon that appears to resemble a bulb. She 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 her head. She has small ovular brownish red eyes and no visible mouth. The underside of her body, just below her head, is short and green, with little stubby edges. She has a small collar of darker green leaves. She has tiny arms (as seen in the Pokémon musical).

Natural Abilities

The leaves on Petilili's head are bitter, but they can either revitalise a person who eats them or cause him/her to feel dizzy.

Habitat

Petilil lives in places with nutritious and fertile soil.

Evolution

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

  • Sun

    Although the leaves on its head are bitter enough to cause dizziness, they provide relief from weariness—even more so when boiled.

  • Moon

    By pruning the leaves on its head with regularity, this Pokémon can be grown into a fine plump shape.

  • Ultra Sun

    Some say if you dry the leaves on its head, boil them down, and drink the infusion, your vigor will return, so Petilil is popular with the elderly.

  • Ultra Moon

    They prefer clean water and soil. When the environment they live in turns bad, the whole bunch will up and move to a new area.

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”.

Her 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).
