Foongus is a white, mushroom-like Pokémon with a top that resembles a Poké Ball. It features stubby, digitless limbs, a small mouth with big pink lips, and dark eyes with pinpricks. It is unclear why Foongus has a Poké Ball-like design, but it is known to utilize it to attract humans and Pokémon in grassy regions before unleashing a cloud of toxic spores to protect itself. If fully dried, the spores may be used as a stomach medication. Foongus moves by jumping or rolling on its cap while turning on its side. It is the shortest Grass-type Pokémon.
