Tropius (トロピウス) is the 150th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Grass/Flying type, and is known as the Fruit Pokémon.

Tropius can have one of two Abilities: Chlorophyll, which doubles its Speed when the weather is sunny but not on the same turn as the weather switch; or Solar Power, an Ability that increases its Special Attack by 50%, but its HP decreases every turn as a result. A third Ability is available to Tropius from the Dream World, the Harvest Ability. This Ability allows it to reuse the same berry infinitely within the span of one battle.

Tropius does not evolve and does not have a pre-evolved form.

Tropius is in the Egg Groups Monster and Grass, and its Egg takes approximately 6,400 Steps to hatch. It takes Tropius 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
