Rowlet is a round bird Pokémon, who has a white face, shaped like a Duosion's appearance. It has brown feathers (with green colored ones on its tail), a white and orange beak, two leaves resembling a bow-tie and two short orange legs.
Due to its high resilience, Rowlet can face any situations. In addition it is able to follow the instructions of its trainer, and organizes different attacks according to different situations.
Rowlet, like Bulbasaur, is the only starter Pokémon with dual-type, coincidentally they're both Grass type.
Rowlet ties with Froakie as the smallest Starter Pokémon, being 1'00".
Rowlet is the lightest starter Pokémon to date.
Rowlet is the only Alola Starter whose first learned move is a previously unseen move (Leafage).
Among the three Starter bird Pokémon, Rowlet is the only one that can fly.
Torchic is based on the chickens and Piplup is based on the penguins, so they can't fly.
Rowlet is based on the barn owl; considering the Alola region's Hawaiian setting, it may also be based on the native pueo owl, where they are known to live in the forests and grasslands of the Hawaiian archipelago.
Rowlet's name comes from "ruffle" and "owlet", a baby owl. It may also come from "round" as it is very round, and "rowan" ,a type of tree, because it is a Grass type.
