Bonus: Munna

Munna might not be a flower Pokemon, but the purple flowers all over this pink Pokemon are quite iconic!

In fact, Munna seems to be foreshadowed even way back during Gen 1. A young trainer outside the cave talks about a pink Pokemon with flowers on its body.

Coincidence? Maybe. A cool Pokemon Easter egg? You bet!

Munna is actually a Psychic Pokemon who eats dreams from people and Pokemon alike. If the dream was pleasant, Munna releases a pink mist. If it was a nightmare, the mist would be black.

We’ll dream of flowers for you instead, Munna.

16. Wormadam

With a flourish of its beautiful leafy and flowery cloak, this is one madame you want to make way for.

Prior to turning into a Wormadam, Burmy covers itself with a cloak made from gathered materials taken from its surroundings. 

If it battles in the tall grass or outdoors, it gets a Plant Cloak. This covering is made up of leaves and twigs.

When it evolves into a Wormadam with this cloak, it turns its cloak into a lush green robe with flowers. Instead of a removable covering, it is now one with Wormadam’s skin, like its own fur.

15. Skiploom

With a hop and skip, Skiploom joins the list with its flowery head!

Skiploom is a Grass/Flying Pokemon from Gen 2. Its design seems to resemble plant bulbs with flowers on top, like a dandelion. Seeing how its final evolution is a Jumpluff, that makes sense!

Meanwhile, its stumpy body and floppy ears make it look like a dog Pokemon. Since Skiploom loves sunlight, it’ll chase the sun and will go anywhere that’s warm and sunny.

Who’s a good flower Pokemon? You are, Skiploom!

14. Gossifleur and Eldegoss

Up next are the flower and cotton duo, Gossifleur and Eldegoss!

These two were recently added to the games in Gen 8. They’re both Grass Pokemon, with Gossifleur evolving to Eldegoss at level 20 or onwards. 

Gossifleur likes to float in the breeze while soaking all the sunlight. This makes its petals even more vibrant and blooming.

When it turns into Eldegoss, it uses its bloomed cotton as protection from attacks. According to the Pokedex, people harvest Eldegoss’s cotton to turn it into yarn for high-end clothing!

With how soft the petals and cotton from these two are, that sounds like a good balance of fashion and comfort. These are great flower Pokemon for fashionistas!

13. Shaymin (Land Forme)

The Mythical Pokemon and totally adorable Shaymin joins our list!

Shaymin is a Grass type Pokemon from Gen 4. It has two forms: Land Forme and Sky Forme.

In its Land Forme, it looks like a hedgehog with grass fur on its back. It also has pink flowers on its head.

This flower resembles a Gracidea, which is a flower gifted to others to show gratitude. And what do you know, Shaymin is categorized as the Gratitude Pokemon!

Shaymin has a gentle and pure nature. It can purify polluted air and turn the place into a field of blooming flowers. Wherever Shaymin migrates, expect a lush flower meadow! 

And for that, we thank you, Shaymin.

12. Gloom, Vileplume, and Bellossom

Brace your nose for this next entry – things might get a bit smelly!

Gloom and Vileplume are Grass/Poison Pokemon from Gen 1. The flowers on their head are based on the real-life rotten-smelling Rafflesia flower.

Gloom’s flower can release a foul odor that can even stink from a mile away! It’s even reported to cause fainting.

When given a Leaf Stone, Gloom evolves to Vileplume, who definitely ups the ante when it comes to secretions. 

Vileplume’s flower is now bigger and wider, and closely resembles a Rafflesia than before. And the stink? Well, as a bonus, it has toxic pollen now that can poison or cause an allergy upon contact.

However, when given a Sun Stone, Gloom becomes Bellossom. It is known to gather in groups to dance and draw out the sun. That sounds more pleasant than drawing out foul odors!

11. Comfey

With its colorful flowers and calming scents, we’re feeling nice and comfy with our next flower Pokemon.

Comfey is a flower Fairy Pokemon from Gen 7. Using a thin blue vine from its head, it picks up and strings a bunch of flowers together. It then secrets oil that can enhance the soothing scent of the flowers.

Because of Comfey’s soothing effects, you can see it in some Pokemon Centers helping Nurse Joy. Depending on the flowers picked, Comfey would vary in color.

We’d like a pink Comfey nurse, please!

10. Sunflora

Let’s embrace the sun with our next entry!

Sunflora is a sunflower Pokemon with Grass typing from Gen 2. It starts out as Sunkern, then evolves into this yellow flower Pokemon when given a Sun Stone.

As its name suggests, Sunflora loves the sun! The warmer the temperature and the more sun it gets, the yellower its petals become.

Absorbing sunlight gives Sunflora the nutrition it needs. It will literally chase the sun’s rays and will face the general direction of the sun. Look at its beaming face!

During sunset, Sunflora will settle down, close its petals, and sleep. Nighty-night, Sunflora.

9. Bellsprout, Weepinbell, and Victreebell

A yellow plant Pokemon trio? You better bell-lieve it! Our next entry is the Bellsprout, Weepinbell, and Victreebell evolution line.

These three all have the Grass/Poison type combo.

They might not look poisonous, but Bellsprout can spit corrosive acid, while Weepinbell can sprinkle poison powder to paralyze its prey. Lastly, Victreebell just swallows its prey and melts it with its acid. Gnarly!

These yellow flower Pokemon seem to be based on real-life pitcher plants that are carnivorous and will eat its prey with its digestive liquids.

Team Rocket’s James had a Victreebell who would show its affection by chomping on James’s head! That’s one way to show your love.

8. Meganium

For some peace and quiet, how about a flower dinosaur Pokemon to calm the nerves? Here’s Meganium, the Grass type final evolution of starter Pokemon Chikorita!

With its frilly neck flower and stamen-like antenna, Meganium is creatively designed! It is said that the scent it releases from its petals can give a calming effect, and even aggressive emotions go down a notch!

That’s not the only flower power it has. According to the Pokedex, Meganium’s breath can bring back to life any dead grass and plants. In the new Pokemon Snap, it’s even worshiped in one of the islands! 

Can you breathe into some of our house plants, Meganium?

7. Floragato and Meowscarada

Here come the flower cats! At number seven, Floragato and Meowscarada wow us with their magic tricks and illusions!

Floragato and Meowscarada are the evolved forms of Sprigatito, one of the starter Pokemon of Gen 9’s Pokemon Scarlet Violet. Floragato is Grass type, while Meowscarada gets the dual typing Grass/Dark.

These flower cat Pokemon use their flowers to show their dextrous skills, mischievous behavior, and showmanship. 

For Floragato, the flower bud is linked to a vine that’s tucked in its fur. Floragato then uses it like a yo-yo! Watch out for its pranks, though. Floragato won’t hesitate to tie you up with its flower vine.

Meanwhile, Meowscarada relishes the attention it gets, especially with its floating flower. The flower is actually linked to a stem, but Meowscarada’s reflective fur hides it. Now that’s some showmanship!

Bravo, you two.

6. Maractus

This next flower Pokemon can get a bit prickly!

Maractus is a Grass type Pokemon from Gen 5. It currently doesn’t have any evolutions or pre-evolutions – talk about being a lone cactus in the desert!

Yep, Maractus looks like a cactus, particularly a prickly pear or a bunny ear cactus. The growth on Maractus’s head looks like bunny ears with flower tips!

But that’s not the only real-life inspiration for this flower cactus Pokemon. Maractus is also based on maracas. The Pokedex even mentions that when Maractus dances in a rhythm, it sounds like shaking maracas.

You can dance the pain away if you get pricked by it.

5. Cherrim (Sunshine Form)

Happily opening its petals to the sun, we’re adding Cherrim’s Sunshine Form to the list!

Cherrim is another flower Pokemon that is pure Grass type. But unlike most flower Pokemon, it has two forms that change depending on weather.

Cherrim’s Overcast Form has its petals all closed up. It also looks dark and brooding. 

However, with a little sunshine, Cherrim turns into its Sunshine Form and blooms into a cherry blossom-looking flower! We’ve even featured it in our pink Pokemon list.

Bloom on, Cherrim!

4. Ivysaur and Venusaur

If we’re talking about flower Pokemon, we definitely can’t skip the OGs. Blossoming their flower bulbs, here are Ivysaur and Venusaur!

After evolving from a Bulbasaur, the bulb on Ivysaur’s back turns into a flower bud. It’s actually quite a heavy bud, which makes Ivysaur’s legs stumpier but stronger.

Ivysaur might be slow due to it, as reflected on its very low Speed, but it strengthens Ivy and ups its Special Defense.

After absorbing a lot of sunlight, the bud finally blooms into a large flower and Ivysaur evolves into Venusaur.

With its huge petals, Venusaur absorbs the sun’s rays more and then turns it into energy. This checks out, given how strong the move Solar Beam is!

Venasaur can also Mega Evolve and Gigantamax. In these states, Venasaur gets more flowers after Mega Evolving, while Gigantamaxing makes its flower, well, gigantic!

3. Budew, Roselia, and Roserade

Fancy some roses? Here’s a bouquet of Budew, Roselia, and Roserade!

When it comes to flower Pokemon, a lot of fans probably instantly remember this trio, which is why we’ve ranked it at number three.

Budew is based on rose buds, while Roselia and Roserade are the bloomed roses.

All three are Grass/Poison in typing, but Budew evolves into Roselia with high friendship during the day, or turns into Roserade with a Shiny Stone.

Budew might look cute, but due to its Poison typing, it can release toxic pollen that can cause allergic reactions. Roselia’s roses might have a nice scent, but the thorns on its head are absolutely poisonous! 

And then there’s Roserade, who’ll lure you with its sweet aroma, but will jab you with its poisonous rose-hands!

They’re all adorable, but these are the kinds of flowers not to be trifled with!

2. Petilil and Lilligant

Our flower-vine-of-a-list has almost reached the top. But before we list the number one flower Pokemon, we have our runner-ups Petilil and Lilligant!

Petitlil is based on tulip bulbs. It has leaves on the top of its head that can be cut or trimmed. They grow back easily, so it’s all well and good. Although very bitter, these leaves can be consumed for its healing properties.

When it evolves to Lilligant using a Sun Stone, its head blooms a big red-orange flower. The flower has crown-like filaments, which makes Lilligant look like royalty.

In Hisui, all Petilils evolve into a new Lilligant form. This Grass/Fighting regional form, as opposed to Unovian Lilligant’s pure Grass typing, has a slimmer build and exposed legs. The Pokedex notes that its strong legs are due to Hisuian snow.

1. Flabebe, Floette, and Florges

And for the best flower Pokemon on our list, we really have to hand it to Flabebe, Floette, and Florges!

All three are Fairy type Pokemon from Gen 6. Flabebe turns into Floette at level 19 onwards, then evolves into Florges using a Shiny Stone.

These Fairy flower Pokemon can look different, depending on the flower it has.

There are a total of five colors – red, orange, yellow, blue, or white. In a Pokemon Journeys episode, it is mentioned that a white Flabebe is pretty rare!

As a Floette, it uses its energy to revive wilted flowers and flowerbeds. A unique Floette, called the Eternal Flower Floette, was heavily featured in Pokemon X and Y. This Floette befriended the former king of Kalos.

When Floette turns into a Florges, it becomes a humanoid-like fae creature looking like it’s emerging from a flower. Florges has the power to grow flowers and absorb the energy of blooming ones. It’s why it was asked to tend castle gardens in the past!

A flower Pokemon that’s also a gardener – you deserve the top spot just for that, Florges.
