Hoppip has a small, round pink body with long green sprouts, resembling the leaves of dandelions in shape, coming out of its head. It is extremely light and can easily blow away in the wind. It also has big, triangular ears with dark insides, small arms and legs, and a tiny tail. Hoppip's beady yellow eyes appear to lack pupils, and it has a circular yellow spot on the underside of each foot.
Hoppip’s most unique feature is its ability to be blown into the air. All it needs is a light breeze and Hoppip can be lifted off the ground and blown by the wind. Hoppip are also capable of using a variety of Grass-type moves, like those involving powders, seeds, and the draining of energy, although Hoppip are also capable of learning the Bug-type move U-turn.
Hoppip are by necessity social creatures. Their light bodies make them extremely vulnerable to winds, so they cluster together and link sprouts with each other in order to anchor themselves in place, or grip the ground firmly with their feet to keep from being blown away.
Hoppip live in grasslands, although they also drift through fields, mountains, and even urban environments. It is a common saying that when Hoppip gather in fields and mountains, spring is on the way.
As a Grass-type, it is possible that Hoppip uses sunlight as energy.
