Trivia

Origins

Vileplume appears to be based on the Rafflesia Arnoldii flower. Vileplume's Japanese name is a direct translation of "rafflesia". Vileplume comes from the words 'vile' meaning disgusting, and 'plume' meaning a long or spreading cloud; this may be a reference to Vileplume's bad smell.
