Cherubi is a little, cherry-like Pokémon with two stubby feet and a spherical, deep-pink body. It has beady eyes and a purple-red stripe down the middle of its face. Cherubi has a short stem with two large, green leaves and another, much smaller head sprouting from it. This second head serves no use, yet it contains nutrients that aid in Cherubi’s development as its first source of sustenance. Because the second head seems to be appetizing, numerous Pokémon have been seen attempting to remove it. When the second head starts to blossom, Cherubi is on the verge of changing. On hot days, it has been seen sunbathing. The second head begins to wilt just as it is ready to develop. Cherubi mostly photosynthesizes and is drawn to honey. Cherubi’s natural predator is Starly.
