Cacnea (Japanese: サボネア Sabonea) is a Grass-type Pokémon.

Appearance

Cacneas appear to be round, green Pokémon covered in green spikes. Its arms are different, however because of them being straight instead of round. Cacnea's mouth appears to have a couple of black spots on it, forming its mouth. It has eyes deep into its body with carved holes showing black inside of Cacnea. It also appears to be wearing a crown on top of its head. Cacnea also has giant spikes underneath him, forming its feet that function like footstools.

Special abilities

Cacnea has the ability Sand Veil and the hidden ability Water Absorb. Sand Veil prevents Cacnea from being effected by sandstorms and raises its evasion in sandstorms by 20%. Water Absorb prevents Cacnea from being effected by Water-type moves and restores its HP a bit when hit by a Water-type move.

In the anime

James's Cacnea 6

James's Cacnea in Battle

A Cacnea that James caught was found in AG006: A Poached Ego!. It was caught after his Weezing and Jessie's Arbok was released to protect a Koffing and a Ekans from a Pokémon Poacher. A running gag in the show was that, upon being released from his Pokéball for battle, Cacnea would promptly elect to painfully hug James' face. In DP054: Once There Were Greenfields, James gave his Cacnea to Gardenia.

Evolution

Cacnea evolves into Cacturne once it reaches Level 32.
