Trivia

  • Foongus is the fourth Pokémon to resemble a Poké Ball, the others being Voltorb, Electrode, and its evolved form Amoonguss. However, unlike the others, it only has a Poké Ball design on it, instead of being in the shape of one.
  • It is the fifth Pokémon that is based on a mushroom, the first four are Paras, Parasect, Shroomish, and Breloom.
  • Like the Voltorb line, Foongus will sometimes show up as an item ball, symbolized as a Poké Ball, in the grass; once interacted with, the "Poké Ball" will attack the player.
  • When a Foongus is mistakenly touched due to its item-like appearance on the screen, it shows a Poké Ball jump up a short length and then come down, causing a small puff of dust.

Origin

Foongus appears to be based on a mushroom and a Poké Ball.

Etymology

Foongus' name may come from fool and fungus. Also, if the names of Foongus and its evolved form, Amoonguss, are put together, it is a pun on the phrase "Fungus among us."
