Original Japanese name: Kusaihana
Evolution: Evolves from Oddish; evolves into Vileplume or Bellossom
Gloom releases a foul fragrance from the pistil of its flower. The horrid stench can cause fainting at a distance of 1.25 miles. When faced with danger, the stench worsens. However, around 1 out of 1,000 people enjoy sniffing its nose-bending stink. But if Gloom is feeling calm and secure, it does not release its usual stinky aroma. The fluid that oozes from its mouth isn't saliva, but a honey nectar that is used to attract prey. Although sweet, it smells too repulsive to get very close. One whiff of the honey can result in memory loss. Apparently, Gloom loves the horrid stench. It sniffs the noxious fumes and then drools even more of its honey. The honey is very sticky and clings stubbornly if touched. The atrocious scent can curl noses more than a mile away.
