PokemonRadar: week three

Pokemon Name: Cherimu
Type: Grass
Classification: Cherry Blossom
Pokedex Number: 059 Sinnoh / 421 National
Ability: Flower Head - This Pokemon and its partner power-up when Sunny Day is in effect
Location Found: Evolved from Cherinbo
Useful Attacks: Trouble Seed

Last week's star Pokemon, Cherinbo, evolves into Cherimu. Initially not much to look at, Cherimu blossoms when Sunny Day is in effect, not only becoming noticeably cuter, but also noticeably more powerful. In addition to a number of useful Grass-type attacks, Cherimu has some interesting status-altering abilities.

Trouble Seed changes the enemy's innate ability to Insomnia, potentially easing some difficult situations, while Prayer negates critical hits for five turns. Despite its flexibility, Cherimu seems to be designed primarily as a Pokemon to fight alongside another.
