Breloom using Headbutt by Dreamgate-Gad


 

Headbutt

“The user sticks out its head and attacks by charging straight into the target. It may also make the target flinch.”

Headbutt has been a Pokémon move since the beginning and has always been classified as Normal-type.  It has a base power of 70 and a base accuracy of 100%.  If the move gets executed, there is also a 30% chance of causing the opponent to flinch.

Breloom would’ve previously learnt the move as a Shroomish by leveling up (originally 22, then 21 since Generation IV and 15 since Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire), but it can also re-learn it from the Move Reminder in exchange for a Heart Scale.

Swagger

“The user enrages the foe into confusion. However, it also sharply raises the foe’s Attack stat”

Swagger was introduced in the Gen. II Pokemon games and deals no damage and is classified as a Normal-type move. It is a really tricky move that will rise the attack of the enemy instead of the user’s one..but it has also the chance of confusing the enemy. The benefit is that it might hit itself with a greater attack power even.

Hitmonchan, Phanpy and Breloom are using this funny move in their arsenal of moves in our art collaboration!  Breloom is an interesting case though – it can only learn Swagger in Generation III, via breeding with a Nuzleaf / Shiftry that knew the move or via a move tutor in Emerald.

 


#286 Breloom

“It scatters spores from holes in the cap on its head. It loves warm and humid climates. It feeds on trees and plants in fields and forests.”

Breloom is a dual grass / fighting type Pokémon and the final form of Shroomish, evolving into this form at level 23.  Researchers suspect that based on its love for warm and wet weather, its preferred habitat is a rainforest.

Breloom’s combat technique can match that of a professional boxer, using a combination of energetic footwork and stretchy punches from its arms.  However, one of its more lethal lines of self-defense is with the holes on its cap, which can unleash poisonous spores and hamper their opponent very quickly.  These toxic spores also form the basis of the seeds on its tail, yet there have been people foolish enough to eat them and end up with upset stomachs.

In the animé, Team Rocket unwittingly stole apples from a group of Shroomish to feed themselves, causing some of them to get so angry they evolved into Breloom and go on a rampage, bringing Ash’s group into the conflict as well.  The lead Breloom went on to fight against May’s then-evolved Combusken and after a fight resulting in a double knockout, they befriended each other and went on to attack Team Rocket for stealing their collective food.
