Pokédex entries



Vileplume appears to be based on a flower that is bad smelling. Vileplume comes from the words 'vile' meaning disgusting and 'plume' meaning smooth.


  • The flower on top of its head is based off a rafflesia, the world's largest flower (found in Asia) that smells like rotting flesh.
