Interesting Facts about the Gloom

Gloom is a grass-poison type of Pokemon, the same as its predecessor, Oddish. Unlike its un-evolved form, Gloom Pokemon have actual flowers atop their heads-large red petals that can emit an incredibly unpleasant odor. This odor, while noxious to most people, can lure in prey for the Gloom. There are also some people who consider the smell pleasant, and even use the foul-smelling nectar to create perfumes. Gloom will only release this smell if it feels threatened. If it feels that it is safe, you can be around this Pokemon without fainting from the odor. They are commonly depicted as drooling nectar from its thin lips, as well as appearing to be asleep because its eyes are almost always closed. In this stage of evolution, the Gloom Pokemon have very basic hands and feet, unlike the Oddish which uses the leaves on top of it head to get around and grab things.

Did you know?

  • Gloom doesn’t drool actual saliva. The “drool” that is often seen coming out of its mouth is actually a sweet honey-like nectar. Just like its flower, though, this nectar smells terrible and can be detected by noses up to a mile away.
  • About one in every one thousand people actually enjoy this smell.
  • Inhaling the smell of this Pokemon can cause a person or other Pokemon to faint.
  • If Gloom feels that it is in dire danger, the smell only gets worse.

Arts and Crafts Activity Notes: Draw the Gloom Pokemon and make enough copies for every intended participant. Have everyone color in their own Gloom with colored pencils, crayons or markers, and then instruct them to carefully cut out their Pokemon with safety scissors. Glue a popsicle stick to the back of the Glooms, and head outside to an area where there are flowers growing in abundance. Plant the popsicle sticks into the ground, scattering the Gloom among the flowers, and now you’ll have your own Gloom-y garden!
