Oddish (ナゾノクサ) is the 43rd Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Grass/Poison-Type, and is known as the Weed Pokémon.

Oddish uses the Chlorophyll Ability, which doubles its Speed during periods of strong sunlight, but not on the same turn in which the weather changes to Clear Skies. A second Ability is available to Oddish from the Dream World, the Run Away Ability. This allows it to always run away from battles against Wild Pokémon unless the opponent uses a move or Ability to trap it.

Oddish gain the opportunity to evolve into Gloom starting at Level 21. It can evolve a second time into Vileplume by using a Leaf Stone on it, or-starting with Generation II-into a Bellossom by using a Sun Stone instead.

Oddish is in the Grass Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Oddish, 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
