The walking cherry Pokémon Cherubi, evolves into Cherrim, the cherry blossom Pokémon. Initially not much to look at, Cherrim 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, Cherrim has some interesting status-altering abilities. Worry Seed changes the enemy’s innate ability to Insomnia, potentially easing some difficult situations, while Lucky Chant negates critical hits for five turns. Despite its flexibility, Cherrim seems to be designed primarily as a Pokémon to fight alongside another.
