Diet: Frondius is a phototroph; it rarely actually eats, although it has been known to eat small fruits and berries at times.
Characteristics: Frondius is a thick, heavyset Pokemon. That is, except for the long neck it possess. At this point in the life of a Tropius, the Pokemon is mostly a dark green with a few brown lines across the body. The green are actually leafy covers, while the brown is a thickset skin. A Frondius possess many of the same characteristics as a Tropius, just larger and more childlike. This acts as a sort of camouflage to help the young Pokemon from being preyed upon. It is powerful for it size, but its long neck is its most defining feature. The neck almost doubles the height of the Pokemon, allowing it to tower above many Pokemon, see around corners, and a multitude of other uses. Long fronds are beginning to grow on the Pokemon's back and while they are not yet capable of supporting the airborne weight of a Frondius, they are useful for allowing it to cool itself in the hot tropics it normally lives in as well as helping it to slow possibly fatal falls to a safe level. A small cluster of berries grows under its chin, indicative of the bananas to come later in it life.
Behavior: Frondly are a very sociable Pokemon. They are naturally inquisitive, their long neck and head getting into everything. This is often their downfall; in the jungle curiosity can lead to death, and the parents of these Pokemon must be ever vigilant. Even trainers must carefully restrain this high energy Pokemon or risk them getting into trouble. They are generally a kind Pokemon; they have been known to play with the more peaceful bugs in the wilds. The only thing that will always raise the ire of a Frondius is the eating of its fruit; while it is delicious, a Frondius only has a limited amount in their lifetime. To be given some of the fruit it the highest honor this Pokemon may convey, so the stealing of it will often enrage a Frondius to the point of no longer being reasonable. If all a Frondius's fruit is taken in a short period of time, there is a good chance it will die. It can regrow it, but after the first batch the berries take progressively longer to grow.
Habitat: Frondius tend to live in tropical forests, although they have been seen in less tropical locales on rare occasion.
Population: Frondius, much like their older form, are extremely rare in the wilds. Finding them is uncommon, although they live in large families so finding one means you have likely found at least a dozen, sometimes up to thirty of this evolutionary line.
Relation with other Pokemon: Frondius are often preyed upon by the larger predators, although smaller ones give them a wide berth due to their powerful parents. It is not uncommon for a Frondius to have friendly relations with smaller Pokemon such as Caterpie or Sentret.
In the World: Frondius, due to their rarity, are highly prized as a Pokemon to be bought, bred, and sold. The fruits on its neck are also worth large amounts, although taking them can often result in the death of the Pokemon, something the poachers don't worry about.
Lifespan: 20 years. Even without evolving a Frondius lives a long time.
Egg: A Frondius egg is quite large; usually around two feet tall and almost as wide and weighs in at almost twenty pounds. It is mostly brown, the natural skin color of a Pokemon.
Breeding: A Frondius is not yet aged enough to breed until around level 20. At that point it is physically capable of breeding although it is so shy that it will take a lot of coercion to achieve that. They aren't a picky breeder, although they will not breed with a Fire Type under any circumstances. Their natural curiosity is a boon in these situations.
