Budew (Japanese: スボミー Subomii) is a Grass/Poison-Type Baby Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

Biology

Physiology

Budew is a bipedal, rosebud-like Pokémon. Its face is yellow with small, slit-like eyes. It appears to be wearing a green bib, and has triangular, stubby yellow feet. When the two vines that are on top of its head open up, a big spot can be seen on each. One vine has a blue spot, while the other has a red spot.

Behavior

It keeps its buds closed during the cold winter, but opens them again in the spring and releases pollen. The pollen it scatters induces harsh sneezing and runny noses. It lives near clean pools and ponds.

Evolution

Budew evolves into Roselia when leveled up with max friendship and during the day. It then evolves into Roserade by use of a Shiny Stone.

Trivia

  • The Japanese title of Dawn of a New Era!, Pochama VS Subomie! Hikari's First Battle!!, caused confusion upon release since Budew had not yet been revealed to the public.
  • Budew is the only one of its evolutionary line whose English name differs from its Japanese name.

Origin

Budew is based on a rose bud.

Etymology

Budew is a combination of bud and dew.

Subomie, Budew's Japanese name, is a corruption of 蕾 tsubomi (flower bud).
