Jumpluff is a dual type Grass and Flying Pokemon introduced in Generation II. It evolves from Skiploom starting at level 27. It is the final form of Hoppip. Take a look below for 25 fun and interesting facts about Jumpluff.
1. Jumpluff is a round, blue Pokemon with red beady eyes and small, round feet and tail.
2. Three cotton puffs, almost as large as the body itself, extend off it: one on each arm, and one on top of its head.

4. Three to four leaves grow at the base of the top puff.
5. Jumpluff drifts on seasonal winds and can use its spores to masterfully maneuver itself around the globe.
