Eldegoss

Eldegoss is a Grass type Pokémon introduced in Generation 8. It is known as the Cotton Bloom Pokémon.

The tiny seeds attached to the cotton fluff around Eldegoss' head are said to be highly nutritious and beneficial to both people and Pokémon. It spreads these seeds throughout the region by sending them on the wind, making the soil of the Galar region rich in nutrients.

Eldegoss evolves from Gossifleur.
