#584 Vanilluxe

If both heads get angry simultaneously, this Pokémon expels a blizzard, burying everything in snow.
– Pokemon White Pokedex

Yum, Vanilluxe is pretty much a giant ice cream cone, at 4’3″ (1.3m) tall. I’ve seen ice cream in the Pokemon world, in the anime and in the game (Castelia cone), would Vanilluxe get mistakenly eaten? I guess it’s the same weird logic as there being plants and plant-based Pokemon. I guess maybe Vanilluxe are ice cream cones that have gained consciousness.

Anyway, its Pokedex entry says if both heads get angry simultaneously, there’s gonna be a blizzard. I find it hard to imagine Vanilluxe looking angry, because in its sprites and official art, both head look really happy. One head looks to be drooling a little, is it hungry for itself (or its other head)? I also like how its back sprite looks like a smilie face.

Stat-wise, Vanilluxe has the highest stat base total of non-legendary ice types (tied with Lapras). It has good Sp Attack, decent Defenses and Attack, though being pure Ice type means 4 weaknesses, though it’s a bit slow. Its family are the only non-Steel type Pokemon to learn Mirror Shot.
