Onionymph (Japanese: Ruitsuugi, ルイツウギ) is a pure Grass-type Pokémon. It evolves from Toinion after planting and tending to it for 10 days.


It's body consists on an onion split into three parts. The sides form a sort of shield and represents a quarter while the base represents the half. It can use these as a sort of shield. It has a small, fragile looking white body with a stalk at the top that curves down. The stalk has a light green and white coloration to it.


Onionymph is capable of producing a scent that causes anyone in the general vicinity to experience painful tears. The effect is increased ten fold if Onionymph is scared, attacked, or hurt. It is capable of using the sides of the onion to protect itself from damage.


Once it finds the perfect soil, it will nest and slowly grow. It dislikes moving once in this state and will react angrily if attempts are made to forcibly remove it.


Onionymph sucks out nutrients from the ground using its feet.


It can be found in grasslands and meadows as well as farm lands.
