Mareep, the Wool Pokémon. Mareep stores static electricity in their wooly coat. They avoid battle and have mild dispositions.
– Ash’s Pokedex
Mareep is adorable, it looks like a fluffy plushie. In Johto, it’s found quite early, giving the player a chance to get an Electric type for the first gym (Flying type). Its Japanese name is the same as the English one.
In Pokepark 2, in order to befriend a Mareep, you have to fall asleep in front of it, which can be a bit annoying ’cause the Mareep move around, but you can’t if you’re trying to fall asleep.
Stat-wise, it has good Sp Attack, but is on the slow side for an Electric type.
