Whimsicott (エルフーン) is the 53rd Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Grass type, and it is known as the Windveiled Pokémon.

Both of Whimsicott's abilities are new abilities that debut in Generation V: Prankster, which increases the Speed Priority of Status category moves by 1, and Infiltrator, an ability that nullifies the effects of moves such as Barrier and Light Screen on the moveset of this Pokémon. Its Dream World Ability has been around since Abilities were introduced in Generation III: Chlorophyll, which doubles the speed of this Pokémon when it is sunny. Speed does not double on the same turn in which the weather becomes sunny, however.

Cottonee will evolve into Whimsicott when a Sun Stone is used on it.

Whimsicott is in the Egg Groups Grass and Fairy, and its Egg will take approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Whimsicott One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Competitive Battling

Whimsicott is a Pokémon that can be used in four different tiers: the range of tiers going from Rarely-Utilized to Uber. A lot of Whimsicott's moves are Status Attacks, which take advantage of a priority boost thanks to its Prankster Ability. However, this could be countered by faster Pokémon with the same Ability that uses Taunt or a Pokémon that has the Magic Guard Ability. Additionally, Whimsicott can't take too many hits due to relatively low HP.
