Kahula is a dual-type Water/Grass Pokémon.

It evolves from a female Shrubsea when exposed to a Water Stone. It is thought to be related to Kelpula.

Biology

Physiology

Kahula is a Pokémon based on a sea lily and a hula dancer. They have a bright light blue and white "dress" where the stripes are wavy, a white appendage at their neck, two long thin yellow arms with stubby yellow hands, and a round yellow head with bright light blue and white "hair", two closed eyes and a smile that gives a calm expression on its face.

Gender Differences

Kahula have no differences, since they are always female.

Special Abilities

Kahula sing beautiful songs, which have the ability to put Pokémon asleep. However, they will use a song that will make everything listening faint after a few minutes of singing, which they do when they feel extremely threatened. Their petals are sharp and are used during their dances. They continue to dance on the shores they washed up onto as Shrubsea. There are competitions where people attempt to imitate Kahula's hula dances.

Behavior

Kahula, like most other Grass-types, have a gentle nature in general. They live on beaches, where they enjoy themselves by singing to the sea and dancing on the reefs they washed up onto shore as Shrubsea. Pokémon and people alike are drawn to their beautiful singing. There are also competitions where people try to imitate the hula dances performed by Kahula.

Habitat

Kahula live on beaches where they washed up while they were Shrubsea's. They remain there to thrive on the coastal benefits. Wild Kahula are found in the grass at the Victory Isle and by Fishing with the Super Rod in Oreshore Town at the Docking Port and on Route 9.

Shiny Coloration Differences

For Shiny Kahula, the bright light blue turns a somewhat light shade of orange, while the yellow turns a seasick green.
