Biological characteristics

Oddish looks like a small animated onion/turnip plant. Its body is blue, purple or black with two small feet and red eyes. On top of its head grows a large clump of 5 long green leaves. “Foliage” redirects here. ...


Oddish is a nocturnal Pokémon, using moonlight rather than the sun's rays for photosynthesis. During the day, Oddish avoids the sun's heat and brightness by burying itself into the earth, leaving only the leaves on top of its head visible above ground. In this way it disguises itself as a plant, misdirecting its carnivorous diurnal predators. A nocturnal animal is one that sleeps during the day and is active at night - the opposite of the human (diurnal) schedule. ... The leaf is the primary site of photosynthesis in plants. ... This article deals with meat-eating animals. ... A diurnal animal (dÄ«-Å­rnÉ™l) is an animal that is active during the daytime and sleeps during the night. ...


While buried, Oddish nourishes itself by absorbing nutrients from the soil using its feet, which are said to temporarily change into a root-like structure for this purpose.


If anyone pulls at Oddish's leaves and tries to uproot it while it is buried underground, Oddish will react by shrieking in a cute, high-pitched voice. This mirrors the behavior of the legendary mandrake in a similar situation, although it seems that Oddish's squeaks do not have the same dire consequences as a mandrake's. Species Mandragora autumnalis Mandragora officinarum Mandragora turcomanica Mandragora caulescens “Mandrake root” redirects here. ...


Once nightfall comes, exposure to moonlight causes Oddish to become much more active. It extracts itself from the ground, and its extremities change back into the shape of legs. It then proceeds to bathe itself in the moonlight and grow, as well as wander around as far as 1,000 feet (approximately 300 metres) scattering its seeds to propagate the species. With the coming of dawn, the cycle repeats.
