Flaaffy is a pink, bipedal, sheep-like Pokémon. Its white mane of wool curls sideways on the top of its head and extends to its upper body. Flaaffy's ears are thick, sideways cones with black stripes, and it has small, blue eyes. It has stubby arms and one nail on each foot. Flaaffy's long tail has black stripes and is tipped with a blue orb.
Storing too much electricity caused Flaaffy to lose the wool over most of its body, but the bare, rubbery skin protects it from the electricity stored in its fleece. The quality of Flaaffy's fleece can change to generate more electricity with less wool. The orb will light up when Flaaffy's mane is fully charged, and it can attack by firing electrified hairs at opponents. Flaaffy typically inhabits grassy meadows and fields.
Flaaffy is based on a sheep with patchy wool. Its type and Ability come from how wool builds up static charges. Its evolutionary family may also have been based on the title of the science fiction novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.
Flaaffy may be a combination of fluffy and baa (the sound sheep make). Aa may also be a reference to an AA battery, given Flaaffy's Electric type.
Mokoko may derive from 羊毛 yōmō (wool) and a corruption of もこもこ mokomoko (fluffy).
