Appearances

Anime

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U

Whimsicott appears in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS on the Unova Pokémon League stage as a background character.

Trophy Description

Ever found a white ball of fluff you couldn't quite explain? That was likely the work of of a Whimsicott. Slipping through the tiniest of cracks like the wind, they like to move furiniture around and leave little fluff balls all over the place. Though they look like sheep, they're actually grass types, and their fluff is more like cotton than wool.

Trivia

  • Although Whimsicott is the Windveiled Pokémon, it is not a Grass/Flying Pokémon like Hoppip, Skiploom and Jumpluff.
  • Whimsicott and its pre-evolution were originally pure Grass-types, but were changed to duel-type Grass/Fairy Pokémon when the new Fairy-type was introduced to the games in Generation VI.
  • This Pokémon is the April on the Pokémon Horoscope.

Origin

Whimsicott appears to be based on a cotton plant in full bloom. It also bears a slight resemblance to a sheep. It might also be based on the Saci, a mischievous creature that rides on winds, lives in forests, and plays pranks.

Etymology

Whimsicott's English name appears to be a combination of “whimsical” and “cotton”.

Its Japanese name, Elfuun, may be a combination of elf and 風 fū (wind) or typhoon.
