Cherrim #421


Cherrim is a tiny Pokémon that has two forms that change depending on the weather. Cherrim is in its Overcast Form under regular weather conditions. Its deep pink body is surrounded by two purple petals. The apex of the petals grow a small purple stem and a green leafy sepal. In this shape, its eyes seem to be near its small legs.

Cherrim takes on the Sunshine Form when there is a lot of sunshine. Pink petals like cherry blossoms encircle and cover its head and breast. Several petals protrude from a golden sphere on the rear of its head. Its throat has a little triangular patch of green. Its head is also adorned with two berry-like orbs that resemble cherry-shaped hair accessories. It has stubby limbs that are pink on the arms and yellow on the legs.

Cherrim, like a blossom, waits calmly for a beam of sunshine. It blooms and absorbs the rays with its whole body when exposed to direct sunshine. It rapidly transitions from calm to energetic and lively. While the sun is shining, it will try to make up for what it had to undergo as a bud. Cherrim curls back into a bud as the light fades. Bug Pokémon are often observed congregating near Cherrim, lured in by the aroma emitted by its flowers.
