Flowby is a Flying-type Pokémon.

It evolves to Nimblow starting at level 20, and evolves into Cirribus when it is exposed to an Air Stone.

Biology

Physiology

A Flowby's most prominent feature is its head, which appears as a large, white, rounded sphere. Upon the top of its round head is a small curl, similar to one that a young child would possess. Joined to the head is a fluffy, white, cloud-shaped body, which adds to Floby's cloud-like appearance. Flowby are filled entirely with water, giving them no real internal organs, bones or muscles. Design-wise, Flowby looks a bit similar to Castform.

Gender Differences

None.

Special Abilities

Flowby can create numerous types of weather, such as rain, hail and thunderstorms, despite the fact that they're small and light. They are also known to conjure up winds of strong strength. Flowby are unique in the that they are made entirely of water vapor. This allows them to withstand hits from powerful Moves, with the damage being much less that usual.

Behavior

Flowby are known to be small and light Pokémon, but they're also powerful and can control wind to create breezez strong enough to lift an adult of their feet. Upon seeing a Flowby, it will start to drizzle, or hail softly during Winter.

Habitat

Flowby happily drift anywhere in the air. Wild Flowby are found in the grass on Route 2.

Shiny Coloration Differences

For Shiny Flowby, the white turns light yellow.
