Simisage, known in Japan as ヤナッキー (Yanakkie) is a Grass-type Pokémon from Unova. Pansage evolves into this Pokémon after being exposed to a Leaf Stone. It is a green monkey with an enormous fir-like pompadour on its head. It also has white eyebrows and white fur on its shoulders. It's got a cream-colored face, abdomen, hands and feet. Its limbs are completely covered in green fur.

As Pansage forms a trio with Pansear and Panpour, so does Simisage with the latter's evolved forms, Simisear and Simipour, respectively.

Trivia

Origin

Like Pansage, Simisage is based on monkeys and trees. Because of this, it is either a visual pun on monkey trees or leaf monkeys. Its hairstyle is based on the bōsōzoku or yankee subcultures

Name Origin

Simisage is a combination of simian and sage. Due to it being a Grass Pokémon, the "sage" in its name likely refers to the Salvia officinalis, also known as the common sage.

The name Yanakkie is a combination of either 柳 yanagi (willow) or 野菜 yasai (vegetable), and monkey. It may or may not involve ヤンキー yankee (delinquent youth) and けっき kekki (vigor) as well.
