It's classified as the cotton candy Pokémon.
<__<


This tends to describe Pokemon, but it's not always what they literally are. Are you going to argue that Shushup is actual perfume come to life?


Off course, It's just a fancy bottle shape. :D

Hmm... I seem to recall Tropius has some very edible bananas growing at the base of its head? Face it, what you're complaining about is old. Tropius may just be based off a banana tree, which bears some very edible fruit. Therefore, it would had the complaint of being based off food LONG before Vanilluxe was even created.

The point is that people are too quick to see this and become outraged that sugar was heated, shaped, and then became sentient instead of looking at it from another way.

First, how do we know this is literal cotton candy? Why can't we look at it and think that in the Pokemon world, this creature was discovered and called the Cotton Candy Pokemon because it looked so much like the sugary treat?

Second, how do we know that this comes after cotton candy? Maybe cotton candy was invented after the Pokemon and as a result, it was given the "Cotton Candy" name.

I think the one thing they have to remember is. If that Pokemon is really Cotton Candy, you'd take a bit out of it. :/

But true. Even reallife animal are named like that. Or would people claim a Tomato Frog is really a tomato?

Is tropius a banana? No, it's based on the concept of PRODUCING food, similar to Miltank and Farfetch'd

And I never said Vanilluxe was the first, cherubi was first, but it's much more ambiguously food

Essentialy every pokemon is food...if you know how to cook them
#40Oak_TeaPosted 7/11/2013 4:22:45 AM
Farfetch'd was based after a myth/story about a lost traveler who came across a duck carrying a leek. The traveler was saved because it ate the duck. (iirc)

Jigglypuff's Japanese name can be translated as "Pudding". Like the kind you eat. Or the British word for "Dessert", the meal.
