Gardenia's Cherubi is a grass-type Pokémon owned by Gardenia.


It was first seen battling Ash's Turtwig in The Grass-Type Is Always Greener! but was quickly recalled.

By the time Ash battled Gardenia in an official Gym battle, Cherubi had grown considerably stronger and this time forced Ash to recall his Turtwig and send out Staravia. Cherubi made good use of its Chlorophyll ability against both Turtwig and Staravia but was eventually defeated by Staravia.
