"The fragrance of the garland on its head has a relaxing effect. It withers if a Trainer does not take good care of it. Even veteran Trainers face a challenge in getting its beautiful flower to bloom. This Pokémon is popular with celebrities."
Lilligant first appeared as a Petilil when Lexi headed to the Driftveil Market. While there, a young man had bred several Petilil, giving them away by battling with them, and, if they lost, would give them away. Lexi battled against the man, and in the final battle, the Petilil lost, resulting in the man giving her away to her.
Petilil was used often following this, including Gym Battles against Clay, Skyla and Brycen. She soon expressed her wish to evolve, eventually doing so in a training session, in which she evolved into Lilligant.
As a Petilil, she had a very shy and dainty personality, but had a very unexpected strong will for battling. Upon evolution, it became more mature, even becoming a mother figure to a lot of Lexi's Pokémon.
Lilligant has calming blooms, as its sead the fragrance of the garland on its head has a relaxing effect.
