Sanbo Flower
First appearance Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (1995)
Latest appearance Yoshi's New Island (2014)
Variant of Egg Plant

Sanbo Flowers are a type of Egg Plant that spits out Pokeys, first appearing in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. If a Yoshi has six eggs, a Sanbo Flower cannot spit any Pokeys out. In Yoshi's Island DS, Sanbo Flowers can be viewed in the Island Museum. They reappear in Yoshi's New Island, during Kamek's battle in Slime Drop Drama. Unlike in previous games, Sanbo Flowers spit out yellow Pokeys, which are even spat out when a Yoshi has six eggs.
