The PomPom grows brilliant pink plumes by eating only foods that are red. The pelt may grow to be very long. While dancing and emitting its strident cry, the PomPom is an arresting sight.
The PomPom is a pink furry humanoid creature with pink pompoms. Its legs, arms, and feet are peach with orange stripes, and on its legs it has pink fur resembling leg warmers. Its "hair" is tied into two pigtails at the sides of its head and it has a tuft of pink sticking out at the top. It looks and behaves much like a human cheerleader.
When this monster is idle, it stays in tempo by marching in place and periodically jumping in cheer.
The PomPom Monster's contribution to an island's song is a high-spirited cheer that adds to the melody, and differs by island:
Air Island — Hey Nana, Hey Nana, Hey Nana, Hey Na, Hey, Low.
Earth Island — Yippie Yay, Yippie Yo, Yippie Yay Yippie Yay Yippie Yo Yo.
Gold Island — Yippitie Yay, Yippitie Yay, Yippitie Yay; Yippitie Yay, Yippitie Yay, Yippitie Yo-o / Yo yo yo yo nana, yo yo yo yo yay.
Because Tweedle and Drumpler take much less time to hatch than both Pango and Cybop, the first combination will provide more breeding opportunities in the same time period (on average).
On Shugabush Island, the PomPom must either be purchased with diamonds or teleported from any other island it is found on (not including Gold) once it reaches level 15.
Earning Rate and Maximum Income
Earning rate is in coins per hour and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness), also each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time. Increasing the monster's level increases the limit.
Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the coins earned per minute, as well as the maximum coins earned. The food per level is the same for all three element monsters and can be found in this article.
Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster, the monster's happiness will increase by 25% (in other words, placing two of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase happiness by 25%).
See the Likes page to view a complete list of all monsters' likes.
Some items to take into consideration when designing your island by strategy are number of beds for the monster, rate of income per bed, max income per bed, and time for max income to be reached. The income below is for level 15:
Number of Beds
Rate of Income High
Rate of Income Low
Rate of Income per Bed High
Rate of Income per Bed Low
Max Income per Bed
Time to Max Income @ High
Time to Max Income @ Low
The name "PomPom" references the colorful pompoms in the monsters' hands.
Rares are special versions of monsters that are only available to buy and breed on weekends. Each weekend a different rare is available to buy or breed. The breeding combination is the same as a regular monster, but the breeding time is longer, the "likes" are different, and the earning rates are higher. They are not yet available in the Windows version of the game.
Find out more about the rare version of the PomPom on the Rare PomPom page.
During the Halloween Season in October, all PomPoms (on all the islands) changed their color to a fluorescent lime green and put "eyes" on their signature pompoms as part of the Plant Island Halloween celebration, even though the PomPom itself is not native to that island. Its costume resembled an alien with 4 eyes and antennae on its head.
During the Halloween Season in October 2015, all PomPoms (on all the islands) changed their color to bright red and dressed up as skeletons. They even changed their arm and legs to black and white stripes rather than the orange and light orange stripes they usually wear. Their pompoms were also changed to bright red and looked a bit spiky.
The PomPom's liking of red food is probably a reference to the South American bird Scarlet Ibis, which gets its bright red color from the red shrimps that compose its diet.
The PomPom is also shown in the game My PomPom, released on November 12th 2014.
It is the only triple element monster which can be brought to more than 3 islands (other than the natural islands and Gold Island). Shugabush Island is the fourth.
The correct spelling of the monster's name is "PomPom", not "Pompom", though it's sometimes hard to tell the difference because of the fonts used by the games. Messages from BBB on social media use the bicapitalized ("CamelCase") form pretty consistently.
Usually, the PomPom's top row of teeth are hidden, but on Earth Island the PomPom occasionally shows a full smile.
The PomPom uses English words rather than its normally obscure vocalizations on Tribal Island ("Come On Let's Go"). In My Singing Monsters: Dawn of Fire, it uses English words on the Continent ("Hey Everybody, Hey Lets Go") and on Cloud Island ("Shake It To The Left --- Shake It To The Right" etc.)
The "Yippie Yay" as heard from Earth Island appears in some of My Singing Monster's Facebook posts.
This is the only triple - element natural with the element air that sings (not including the ones in Dawn of Fire). However, the Congle sings on the Tribal Island, coincidentally with the PomPom.
It is not known for sure whether PomPoms carry pompoms or if the pompoms are their own tufts. In this Facebook link, it shows a PomPom carrying a letter from Hoola, showing PomPom with a pompom as it holds the letter. However, the game My PomPom with its game "the juggling game" shows the PomPom with bare hands.
The PomPom looks similar to the Hoola and adult Sooza.
The Thwok shows some resemblance to the PomPom, as in similar to the overall body shape.
