Cacnea (Japanese: サボネア Sabonea) is a Grass-type Pokémon.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Cacneas appear to be round, green Pokémon covered in green spikes. Its arms are different, however because of them being straight instead of round. Cacnea's mouth appears to have a couple of black spots on it, forming its mouth. It has eyes deep into its body with carved holes showing black inside of Cacnea. It also appears to be wearing a crown on top of its head. Cacnea also has giant spikes underneath him, forming its feet that function like footstools.

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

Cacnea has the ability Sand Veil and the hidden ability Water Absorb. Sand Veil prevents Cacnea from being effected by sandstorms and raises its evasion in sandstorms by 20%. Water Absorb prevents Cacnea from being effected by Water-type moves and restores its HP a bit when hit by a Water-type move.

In the anime[edit | edit source]
