Own Tempo – Prevents confusion
Chlorophyll – Speed doubles during sunny weather
Dream World abilities: Leaf Guard – Prevents status ailments during sunny weather
Location found:
 Nacrene City (NPC woman in the duplex directly east of the Pokemon Center will trade your Cottonee for her Petilil or vice versa depending on which version of the game you have)
White: Pinwheel Forest
Wild hold items: None
Egg groups: Plant
Capture rate: 190
Gender ratio: 100% female
Effort values: 1 Special Attack
Evolution family: Petilil > Lilligant via Sun Stone

Petilil and Lilligant have the distinction of being the only pure Grass types that are always female. Lilligant is also the only non-Bug-type Pokemon that can learn Butterfly Dance, which raises special attack and speed, complementing her stats nicely. Like Whimsicott, it's worth thinking about a combination of status and offensive moves for  Lilligant. Sleep Powder is always a good option, especially since putting your enemy to sleep can help give you time to boost your stats with Butterfly Dance.

    What a great trade for Cottonee in black, comes with Leech Seed, so I have it holding a Big Root for better leech seed.

    Status symbol Pokemon! I see they're finally addressing certain gaps that the universe created for itself. All of the new Grass types make it a point to say how bitter they are. It's like Game Freak wants to stamp out the idea of people eating Pokemon.
