Wynaut is small and is mainly blue in color, it also has a black tail that was an eye on it. Wynaut evolves to Wobbuffet. Many people consider it to be cute.

Wynaut's name clearly comes from the words "Why not". This is likely due to its fun-loving nature.


  • It is one of few Pokémon to only learn counter attacking moves such as Counter and Mirror Coat.
  • It is the only Pokémon found on Hoenn's Mirage Island.
  • Wynaut appeared in Season 4 of the Pokémon anime before it's introduction in the games. It shares this trait with Kecleon.
