Swirlix (ペロッパフ, Peroppafu) is a creature from the Pokémon media franchise.


Swirlix is a Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI, and is categorized within the Pokédex at #684 as the "Cotton Candy Pokémon". It is found in the wild in Pokémon X as a version exclusive: its Y counterpart is Spritzee. Swirlix evolves into Slurpuff if traded holding a Whipped Dream. Both it and its evolved form have a signature Ability, Sweet Veil, which prevents it and any other active allies from falling asleep.

Cotton Spore is a move introduced in Generation II which lowers the target's Speed by two levels. Swirlix can learn it at level 17.

Swirlix can be summoned from a Poké Ball: while on the field it releases a pink cloud which slows the movement speed of nearby opponents, similar to the Timer item and Ashley.


Swirlix's trophy is randomly available in both versions. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U it is part of the Pokémon X & Pokémon Y Trophy Box.

NTSC Swirlix, a Fairy-type Pokémon, has a serious sweet tooth. However, all those sweets make its fur really sticky. If you trade a Swirlix while it holds Whipped Dream, it'll evolve into a Slurpuff. In Smash Bros., Swirlix likes to use Cotton Spore. Getting hit by this attack will seriously slow you down.

PAL Swirlix has a serious sweet tooth – it eats so many sweets that even its fur is sticky and sweet. Not that you should try eating its fur. In this game, it'll use Cotton Spore to slow down all of the other fighters. See? Definitely not edible. Fun fact: if you trade Swirlix while it's holding a Whipped Dream, it'll evolve!
