Nuzleaf is a bipedal Pokémon with light brown bulky thighs patterned with thin striations. It has two black dots on its chest. It has a pointed nose, a light brown mask, and a pointed pattern that extends to the back of its head. There is a green leaf on top of its head. A female's leaf will be smaller than a male. It does not like to have its long nose pinched, due to it losing power if it is grabbed.
It makes music with leaves, which strikes fear and uncertainty in people that are lost in the forest. However, it can also be used to comfort humans. It has an odd power that manifests as the move Extrasensory; its former signature move. It lives in forests and thick woodlands, and is skilled at climbing trees. It likes to come out of the forest and scare people.
Nuzleaf is probably based on an acorn, and possibly on Pinocchio. They may also be based on 天狗 tengu, tricky Japanese goblins who are known for their long noses, cruel tricks, ability to read minds, and the ranks of 小天狗 ko-tengu, tengu of lesser rank.
Nuzleaf may be a combination of nuzzle or nose and leaf. Konohana is literally 巨の鼻 konohana (big nose), but it may also be a combination of 木の葉 konoha (leaves) and 鼻 hana (nose).
