When attacked, it escapes by shooting cotton from its body. The cotton serves as a decoy to distract the attacker.

They go wherever the wind takes them. On rainy days, their bodies are heavier, so they take shelter beneath big trees.

Perhaps because they feel more at ease in a group, they stick to others they find. They end up looking like a cloud.

Sun
When it finds others of its kind, they all stick together. When enough of them have collected, the mass resembles a cumulonimbus cloud.
Moon
Pillows and beds stuffed with cotton exhaled by Cottonee are soft and puffy, light and airy—altogether top quality.
Ultra Sun
To protect itself, it shoots cotton from its body. When it gets wet in the rain, its cotton grows moist and heavy, and it can’t move as well.
Ultra Moon
When attacked, it expels cotton from its body to create a diversion. The cotton it loses grows back in quickly.

TriviaEdit

  • Cottonee is the fourth Pokémon that is based on a cotton plant, the firsts being Hoppip and its evolutions.
  • Cottonee and its evolution Whimsicott were originally a pure Grass-types, but their types were changed to Grass/Fairy in Generation VI, when the new Fairy-type was introduced.

OriginEdit

Cottonee is likely based on a cotton plant or dandelion seed, with traits of a ball of cotton. It also slightly resembles a cloud.

EtymologyEdit

Cottonee's English name is likely a corruption of the word "cottony", or possibly a combination of the words "cotton" and "wee" (meaning small).
