Across the Pokemon series, there have been many cute and memorable designs that have been inspired by a variety of sources, whether those are myths, animals, or inanimate objects. With so many animal-inspired Pokemon out there, it’s no wonder there are so many charming designs.
Bunnies are just one of the many animals Pokemon has used in his designs, and these Pokemon are just as cute as their real-life counterparts. Whether they take only one side of the rabbit, like their floppy ears, or stick closely to the origins of rabbits, each and every one of these rabbit Pokémon is unique in their own way.
10/10 Shhhh: Whismur
This shy Pokemon is known for its calm nature. However, if it gets startled or annoyed, it makes an ear-piercing shriek that can cause a headache all day long if you’re lucky enough to be next to one, according to a Pokedex entry in Pokemon Sword.
While its design is more abstract than other rabbit-like Pokémon, Whismur certainly embodies the bunny’s allure with its floppy, yellow-tipped ears. These ears help protect it from loud noises, because this Pokemon is especially sensitive to sound, including its deafening screams.
9/10 Burrows in your heart: Bonelby
With Bunnelby’s design, it’s no secret which animal he draws inspiration from. This muddy bunny has ears and feet covered in dirt from a hard day’s work digging tunnels. In fact, Bonelby’s large ears are similar to a digger and help him dig underground with ease.
This little bunny has a passion for digging that only grows when he evolves into Diggersby, to continue the topic. Bunnelby’s clever design is a great way to represent the habits of rabbits in the real world by emphasizing their ability to create complex underground warfare.
8/10 Healing Powers: Odino
Although not referred to as a rabbit in games, Audino’s design drew inspiration from this animal. The main rabbit-like features of the Audino are their floppy and large ears. This Pokemon is known for its healing abilities and ability to read other people’s emotions.
In its Mega Evolved form, the Audino’s floppy ears stand upright, giving it a rabbit-like appearance. It also replaces its pink color scheme with a mostly white pallet with pink accents. This rabbit-like Pokemon, especially in its Mega Evolved form, has a magical design that looks like it came out of a fairy tale.
7/10 Two versus one: Plusle and Minun
These Pikachu clones are known as Cheering Pokemon and come as a package deal thanks to their complementary designs and names. Introduced in Ruby and Sapphire, these Pokemon were the perfect pair for the first time along with the Dual Battle System.
Although their design is similar to that of Pikachu, Plusle and Minun also resemble rabbits, due to their long ears. As their names suggest, they rely on plus and minus symbols, making them antagonists cheering each other on in battle. In this case, two rabbits are definitely better than one.
6/10 Pet Carefully: Nidoran
If you look beyond Nidoran’s prickly appearance, this Pokemon shares many characteristics with rabbits, such as its large ears and teeth. Nidoran is actually a mix of a lot of real-life animal species, but the rabbit’s inspiration is one of the most obvious.
First introduced in Pokemon Red and Blue, the only Pokemon with a gender difference was in this game, with Female Nidoran being blue, and Male Nidoran being purple. Although cute, this rabbit can be difficult to pet due to its venomous nature.
5/10 Athletic Rabbit: Robot
Raboot is Scorbunny’s second development and continues the theme of the sport’s previous evolution. Its fur resembles a tracksuit and has a bandeau-like pattern on its head, keeping this Pokemon always ready for your next workout routine.
The best feature of the Raboot’s design is the pouch on its belly that acts as a pocket, allowing the Pokémon to keep its paws nice and warm. These added characteristics help elevate the hare’s look, while perfectly summing up the concept of gym fights in the Gallar region, which mirror football matches in the UK.
4/10 Fly me to the moon: Wigglytuff
This lovable Pokemon has a round body and a light pink color, but its best features are definitely the swirl on its head and rabbit-like ears. The Pokedex entry in Pokemon Gold is exceptionally cute, describing how two Wigglytuffs will snuggle together and refuse to part because of their soft fur.
As its earlier development, Jigglypuff evolved into Wigglytuff using moonstone, and its rabbit-like appearance can be a reference to the moon rabbit that appears in many myths around the world.
3/10 So Cute Jump: Scorbunny
One of the entry-level Pokemon you can pick to start your adventure in Pokemon Sword and Shield, Scorbunny is a fiery rabbit that can attack using its powerful paws, as well as pads in there that “radiate tremendous heat,” according to Pokedex. Entry.
Scorbunny’s simple rabbit look is effective, and touches of red and orange complement her white fur while showing off her fiery writing. Every novice Galar Pokémon is exceptionally cute, but this bunny will jump into your heart if you decide to pick it up.
2/10 Make a splash: Azumarill
While its previous evolutionary form – Marill – is known as Aqua Mouse Pokemon, Azumarill is Aqua Rabbit Pokemon and looks exactly as the name suggests. Its egg-like shape and vibrant blue color scheme help it stand out from the rabbit-like Pokemon of the series.
The wave and bubble pattern on her stomach makes Azumarill look like a colorful Easter egg. However, due to its aquatic theme, this design will likely resemble water spray, helping it blend under the waves.
1/10 Fluffy Rabbit: Bunnier
One of the most classic examples of a Pokémon rabbit is the bunniere, a small rabbit with tufts of fluffy fur and one floppy ear. Its shiny shape adds even more appeal to this adorable bunny, as its tufts of cream-colored fur are usually pink and resemble cotton candy.
Despite its development through high friendship, Puneri is the only Pokemon, apart from Legendaries, Mythicals, and Ultra Beasts, to have a friendship base from scratch. The process of forming a bond with this rabbit may be longer than most, but it is well worth your time.
