Nimblow is a Flying-type Pokémon.

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

Biology

Physiology

Nimblow is a cloud-like Pokémon. Its body is somewhat round that is mostly white, with a curved smile, two black eyes with tiny white ovals, and a curl on the top of its head. Below that is another somewhat round shape that is a rainy blue color.

Gender Differences

None.

Special Abilities

Nimblow can create numerous types of weather, such as rain, hail and thunderstorms. They are also known to conjure up winds of strong strength. Because Nimblow's bodies mostly consist of water vapor, they shrink during droughts and grow during rainy seasons.

Behavior

Nimblow's body is mostly water vapor, so they shrink during droughts and grow during rainy seasons. Because of this, they try to stay in areas with a lot of rainfall, while keeping away from dry places.

Habitat

Wild Nimblow are found in the Whisper Tunnel, which seems strange for a Pokémon that's based on a cloud.
