Trevenant is a ghostly Pokémon that looks like a slender brown tree. Its shadowy black body may be seen through cracks in the tree, and a solitary, crimson eye can be seen through a hole towards the top. A wavy, horn-like branch on either side of its head is sprinkled with tiny, green leaves, as is a smaller branch on its forehead. A cluster of green leaves grows on top of its head. It has two arms with gnarled branches on the elbows, identical to its horns. Green leaf cuffs wrap over its wrists, and each hand bears three claw-like fingers. Instead of legs, it has six roots that resemble spider legs.

Trevenant may exert influence on other trees by acting as a nerve system via its roots. It will curse anyone who chop down trees and will use this power to capture those who hurt its forest. It is, nevertheless, exceedingly friendly to woodland animals and Pokémon that live in its body. Trevenant despises Fire-type Pokémon, thus lumberjacks frequently carry them with them to ward it off.

Trevenant and its pre-evolved form Phantump are the only Pokémon known to be able to learn the move Forest’s Curse.
