Swirlix (ペロッパフ Peroppafu) is a Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. It is Spritzee's counterpart.

Biology

Physiology

Swirlix is a short, small Pokémon that resembles cotton candy on a stick. It has a round puffy white body with ovular red eyes, a tiny red nose, and two ear-like pink-tipped lumps of sticky fur atop its head. It has a stubby pink tail below its puffy body. Swirlix also has two stubby light pink feet on its underside, which are often hidden within its puffy mass of fur. It seems to lack paws altogether.

Behavior

Swirlix only eats sweets, thus Swirlix looks and feels like candy floss, but this also means when they don't have sweets to eat, they will become aggressive. When it is in battle it will sometimes extrude white sticky and sweet threads to entangle its opponents. Wild Swirlix usually live in a small group in the forests. 

Evolution

Swirlix can be evolved into a Slurpuff by trading it while holding Whipped Dream.

Trivia

  • Swirlix's shiny form resembles vanilla cream mixed with chocolate, due to its brown and cream coloration.
  • In Super Smash Bros., Swirlix is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Poké Balls. During this time, it uses the move Cotton Spore.
  • Swirlix is the only non-Bug-type Pokémon that is capable of learning Sticky Web.

Origin

Swirlix is based on the cotton candy with triats of dogs like poodles.

Etymology

  • Swirlix's typing of fairy most likely comes from the idea of "fairy floss" which is what cotton candy is called in Australia.
  • The name Swirlix is likely to be a combination of "swirl" and "licks", which the last three letters of "licks"(c, k and s) are changed into "x".
