It also appears to have a scarecrow hat, explaining it being the Scarecrow Pokémon. It has a cactus-like appearance and traits making like a Scarecrow Cactus.
Cacturnes have the ability Sand Veil and a hidden ability Water Absorb. Sand Veil prevents Cacturne from being attacked by sandstorms and raises its evasion 20% in sandstorms. Water Absorb prevents Cacturne from being affected by -type moves and restores its HP a bit when attacked by a Water-type move.
In the anime
May's rival, Harley, has a Cacturne that appears to be his main and favorite pokemon, as Harley dresses in a way that looks very similar to a Cacturne. Harley's Cacturne made its first appearance in AG103: A Cacturne for the Worse and a minor appearance in the move starring Deoxys and Rayquaza, Destiny Deoxys. Harley also dresses like a Cacturne.
Cacturne is the evolved form of Cacnea as of level 32.
