When it was introduced in Generation III, Breloom had only one Ability, called Effect Spore, an ability that has a 10% of afflicting an opponent with either Paralysis, Poison, or Sleep when it is hit by a move that requires physical contact against it. A second ability was added to Breloom in Generation IV, the Poison Heal Ability. This ability restores its HP every turn that is Poisoned.
A third ability was added to Breloom from the Dream World in Generation V, the Technician Ability. This ability applies to attacks that have a Base Power less than or equal to 60, as those moves have their base power increased by 50% with this ability.
Shroomish can evolve into Breloom starting at Level 23.
Breloom takes on the appearance of a bipedal lizard with short arms and a mushroom on its head, like a cap.
 Gender Differences

 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Breloom was listed in the OU, or Over-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling as of Generation IV. As Generation V went by, Breloom was put into the OU tier again. In the Pokemon Black and White era, it was very similar to it's Generation IV counterpart, with the exception of an added counter in Gliscor and a Bulk Up set. When Pokemon Black and White 2 came out, Breloom obtained it's Dream World ability in Technician, which made him an absolute powerhouse offensively. Moves like Mach Punch, Low Sweep, and Bullet Seed became Breloom's most common moves. Breloom also can get around its usual counters with the use of Spore, a 100% accurate sleep move that can devastate the counter and help Breloom wreck havoc even more.
