Trivia

  • Before Generation VII, Sunkern had the worst base stat total. Since every one of its base stats are literally just 30 points each, its complete total is just a pitiful 180, which is less than the so-called weakest Pokémon. While this place was later taken by Wishiwashi (which has a base stat of 175), Wishiwashi's stats massively increase upon assuming its School Form, so the point is moot.
  • Sunkern and its evolution Sunflora are the only Pokémon with Early Bird as their Hidden Ability.

Origin

Sunkern is based on a sunflower seed that has grown a shoot.

Etymology

Sunkern may be a combination of the words sunflower and kernel.
