Buneary (ミミロル) is the 67th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Normal Type, and it is known as the Rabbit Pokémon.

Buneary has two main Abilities. The first of these is Run Away, which, as the name suggests, allows the user to run away from any battle against a Wild Pokémon unless a trapping move or Ability is in effect. The second Ability it can have is Klutz, which takes away the battle effect of any item the Pokémon is holding except for any items that affect experience gain. Its Hidden Ability is Limber, which protects it from becoming afflicted with Paralysis.

Buneary gain the opportunity to evolve into Lopunny once its Happiness Value has reached a high enough point, then it leveling up to trigger the evolution. Starting in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, a Lopunny can evolve into a Mega Lopunny by using a Mega Stone.

Buneary is in the Egg Groups Field and Human-Like, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Buneary One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
