Snaileaf, known in Japan as ハメクジ (Hamekuji), is a Grass-type Pokémon. It evolves into Branchnail at level 16, which evolves into Centreepyd at level 36.

Along with Flitten and Surchin, it is one of the starter Pokémon in the Flevore Region, at the beginning of Pokémon Citrine and Olivine Versions.



Snaileaf resembles mostly a green slug with thin, black antennae, each with a green orb on top. Snaileaf also takes resemblance to a leaf, with its body being the stem and the floppy, fluffy organs at its sides the main part of the leaf. It also has a triangle-like pattern that represent a leaf's veins.

Under its floppy organs, it actually bears some paws that help it walk faster.

Gender differences


Special abilities

Snaileaf are able to move faster than any other slug due to it having paws hidden under its leaf-like side organs. When its own eyes are blinded by e.g. mud, it uses the orbs atop his antennae instead to look around.


Snaileaf are protective about their leaf-like organs, which store energy and moisture. If one part of Snaileaf's leaf organ is missing, it is unable to proceed, else it will dry out due to loss of moisture. Other than that, they are cheerful, carefree and relaxed. They also seem concerned about other Snaileaf in need. If another Snaileaf sees a Snaileaf that can't proceed, it will pick a few leaves and puts it on the teared parts, healing the wound in a matter of minutes. The helped Snaileaf will eat the leaves to gain enough energy to proceed again.


Snaileaf are suggested to live in forests.


Snaileaf are known for eating leaves, but are also able to use photosynthesis.



Snaileaf looks like a combination between a slug and a birch leaf.
