"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 humanoid creature with pink fur and pink pompoms. Its legs, arms, and feet have 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 — Yippitie Yay, Yippitie Yo, Yippitie Yay Yippitie yay Yippitie 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.
- Shugabush Island — Gimmie Wop, Gimmie Wop, Gimmie Wop Gimmie Wop Gimmie Wop Wop.
- Tribal Island — C'mon, c'mon let's go! C'mon, c'mon let's go!
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 is in coins per minute.
|Level||0% Happiness||25% Happiness||50% Happiness||75% Happiness||100% Happiness|
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%).

The name "PomPom" references the colorful pompoms in the monsters' hands.
- The PomPom's like for red food is probably a reference to the South American bird Scarlet Ibis, that receives its bright red color from the red shrimps that compose its diet.
- The PomPom is shown in the game My PomPom, released on November 14th.
- It is the only triple element monster which can be brought to more than 3 islands.
- 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.

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.

During the Halloween Season in October, all PomPoms (on all the islands) change 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 resembles an alien with 4 eyes and antennae on its head.
