As the sig says, today's Johto Pokemon of the Week is...! Bellossom!
Bellossom, dex number 182
Height: 1' 4"
Weight: 13 lbs
Japanese Name: Kireihana
Bellossom, the Flower Pokemon. Bellossom gather at times and appear to dance. They say that the dance is a ritual to summon the sun. Bellossom are plentiful in the tropics. When it dances, its petals rub together and make a pleasant ringing sound. When Bellossom gets exposed to plenty of sunlight, the leaves ringing its body begin to spin around. This Pokémon's dancing is renowned in the southern lands. When the heavy rainfall season ends, it is drawn out by warm sunlight to dance in the open.
Ah yes, Bellossom, Gloom's strange evolution. Bellossom is also one of the first pokemon to utilize a Sun Stone to evolve. It's a pretty cool poke, actually being modeled by a hula dancer, rather than an actual animal. I still remember the 2nd movie with all the Bellossom, lulz. It's typing is pretty rare too, considering it's a fully evolved, pure grass type. I usually don't like grass types, but Bellossom is cool.
In the competitive aspect, Bellossom is simply UU, not very strong. It shares a lot with Vileplume too; but it does have some advantages, like not getting the terrible poison dual-typing, as well as moves like Leaf Storm. For UU it's not bad, but it's not good either. Atleast it's good for creating sunlight, and then abusing it with Solarbeam.
Alright everyone, what's your opinions on Bellossom?
