Poipole is a small purple Pokémon with a large head and small limbs with no visible digits. It has a long tail with a small spike on it, giving it a vaguely reptilian appearance. The tip of its tail, chest, face and tips of its head spikes are fuchsia. On its head are three spikes. The side spikes and the top of its head have grey nozzles which are capable of firing a glowing adhesive poison. It laughs while targeting opponents with this poison. Poipole's eyes and mouth give off a cyan glow.
