Original Japanese name: Rafureshia (Rafflesia)
Evolution: Evolves from Gloom
Vileplume has the world's largest petals, making its big head heavy and hard to hold up. Its bud bursts into bloom with a bang, then starts scattering allergenic, poisonous pollen with every step. The pollen is highly toxic and causes paralysis. The petals are used to attract prey that are doused with the toxic spores as Vileplume flaps its broad petals. The flapping sound is very loud. Once the prey is immobilized, this pokemon catches and devours it. The toxic pollen from the petals triggers atrocious allergy attacks. That's why it is advisable never to approach any attractive flowers in a jungle, however pretty they may be. The larger the petals, the more pollen is scattered. In seasons when it produces more pollen, the air around Vileplume turns yellow with the powder as it walks.
