Furfrou is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, Furfrou can have its hair trimmed into nine different styles to change its appearance. The styles include the Star, Diamond, Heart, Pharaoh, Kabuki, La Reine, Matron, Dandy, and Debutante Trim. A trimmed Furfrou will revert into its Natural Form if five days have passed since it was trimmed without being deposited in the PC, or if it is deposited in (Generation VI) or withdrawn from (Generation VII) the PC.
