Weepinbell has a yellow, bell-shaped body and a wide, gaping mouth with pink lips and what seems to be a tongue. It has no legs or arms. Above Weepinbell’s circular eyes is a pattern of three small green spots. Weepinbell has green, razor sharp, leafy appendages, which droop like the leaves of a weeping plant. Weepinbell also has a brown hook on a segment at the rear of its head, which may be a remnant of the roots of its previous form. Its height is 3'03" and weight is 14.1 lbs.
Weepinbell has an extremely potent internal acid, which has the ability to dissolve almost anything within seconds. Weepinbell also oozes a neutralizing fluid that prevents its internal acids from melting its own body.
Weepinbell camouflage themselves as plants in the forest whilst awaiting an unwary victim. When its prey draws near the Weepinbell sprays toxic pollen to immobilize the target before melting it with its internal acids. Weepinbell hangs from tree branches by its brown hook as it sleeps. If it moves around during sleep, Weepinbell may slip and awaken to find itself on the ground.
Weepinbell live in forests, as well as tropical jungles and swamps where the ground is rich in nutrients. They can also occasionally be found in caves, near sources of underground water. It is most commonly found in Kanto and Johto, but can also be found in Sinnoh.

Weepinbell is less of a picky eater than its previous form, as it will attempt to eat anything that passes near it. If a foe is too large to fit in Weepinbell's mouth it will use its razor sharp leaves to slice its meal into smaller pieces.
