Castform (Japaneseポワルン Powalen) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, it has the ability to change forms depending on the current weather.

Biology

 

Castform is an artificial Pokémon that changes appearance and attitude based on the weather. Its body is made of cells exactly like those of water molecules, causing its cellular structure to be altered by temperature and humidity. It uses this ability to protect its tiny body. In its Normal Form, it resembles a plain, gray cloud with a single wisp extending from the top of its head. When in its Sunny Form, its lower half becomes pure white, while the head turns orange has develops small orange spheres around it. This gives it the overall appearance of the sun above a small cloud. While in its Rain Form, it will have a dark gray lower half resembling a storm cloud. The head will be blue and resemble a raindrop. In its Snowy Form, its head turns purplish-blue. The rest of the body changes into the shape of a mint green, cumulonimbus cloud. Regardless of the form it takes, it will always have a large, spherical head and a lighter colored mask-like marking over its eyes. Aside from its various forms, Castform is able to utilize weather powers in the form of its previously signature moveWeather Ball. Despite its manmade origins, it can be found in grassland areas.

Trivia

  • Castform is the only Pokémon in both the Fairy and Amorphous Egg Groups.
  • Castform's Weather Ball will always receive STAB in any of its forms unless in a sandstorm, under Shadow Sky, or if it loses Forecast.
    • Castform is the only Pokémon to receive this benefit from Weather Ball.
  • In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, Castform has a body size of 4, despite it being a body size 1 in the first Mystery Dungeon games and having the same in-game sprite in the second Mystery Dungeon games. This may have been changed to balance gameplay.
  • Castform's weather-based transformations cannot be viewed in the forms section of the Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Pokédex, nor do they appear on the field in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
    • All of Castform's forms will appear in the forms section of the HeartGold and SoulSilver Pokédex upon obtaining one, even if it never transformed.
  • Castform is the lightest Normal-type Pokémon.
  • Unlike most Pokémon with form differences, Castform's alternate forms have no Shiny variations of their own, so only the Normal form of a Shiny Castform will look different.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Castform resembles a living cloud and acts like weather in general, but it may also be based on a weather balloon. It is similar in both concept and design to a teru teru bōzu, a Japanese charm doll used to wish for good weather. Its forms and their types may have originated from the English saying "rain, hail, or shine." As Castform is said to be composed of molecules similar to water, its shape of a large sphere with two smaller orbs resembles an H2O molecule.

Name origin

Castform may be a combination of forecast (the prediction of weather) and transform or form (referring to its ability to change form depending on the weather). The German and French names reflect this.

Powalen may be a combination of ポワン powan (onomatopoeia of a sudden transformation, similar to "poof" in English) and 変わる kawaru (to change or transform).
