Welcome back to Who’s That Pokémon? the feature series regarding the Pokémon we can expect to see in the upcoming games. From Rowlet to Tapu Koko, and Drampa to Ash-Greninja, we have covered them all, but now we have another eight Pokémon to cover, so get ready for another instalment of Who’s That Pokémon? We dedicate this edition to Cutiefly’s evolved form, Ribombee!
Classification: Bee Fly Pokémon
Weight: 1.1 lbs
Known Abilities: Honey Gather / Shield Dust
Known Moves: Fairy Wind / Dazzling Gleam
Description: “Ribombee collect flower nectar and pollen to make into balls known as Pollen Puffs. These serve as food, and what’s more, they also can cause effects like paralysis or dizziness. Ribombee may use puffs to strike their opponents during battles. Some of the Pollen Puffs that Ribombee make also have relaxing effects or can relieve tiredness. These are distributed around the Alola region as high-priced supplements.
Ribombee hate getting rained on. They’re covered with fluffy hairs that hold the pollen they’ve gathered, and the rain makes them wet and dirty. Alolan people know that if Ribombee are busily visiting the fields of flowers, you can be sure that the fair weather will continue.”
