Notes[edit]

  • Rafflesia cannot be charmed.
  • They can be Aspired for MP.
  • In Sarutabaruta, and possibly Fort Karugo-Narugo, the Rafflesia seem to travel in pairs, keeping fairly close proximity to one another, almost as if there is a male and a female.
  • In West Sarutabaruta (S) if the Rafflesia uses Floral Bouquet when a Bumblebee is near, the Bumblebee will attack you. Likewise, this will happen if a Death Jacket or Dragonfly is nearby when it uses the move in Fort Karugo-Narugo (S). The Rafflesia will eat the charmed mob if not killed to gain HP.

Historical Background[edit]

Rafflesia arnoldii, is called "monster flower". It is a parasitic plant found in Southeast Asia. It grows within a host vine until emerging with a basketball-sized bud that develops a flower the size of a tire. It gives off a smell similar to a decaying corpse to attract flies which spread its pollen before the flower shrivels a few days after bloom.
