Parasect
Ntl. Dex #047
Type: Bug/Grass
Abilities: Effect Spore/Dry Skin
Height: 3’03”
Weight: 65.0 lbs
Parasect, the Mushroom pokemon is the evolved form of Paras. Like its previous stage, Parasect is an insectoid creature. However, in this stage, the mushroom has completely overtaken the host’s body. The insect has been drained of nutrients and is now under the control of the fully-grown tochukaso.
Due to the influence of the tochukaso in its growth, the insect’s metamorphosis has been stunted and it instead resembles a grotesque, exaggerated version of its former self. Its pincers and legs have grown much larger and the mushrooms on its back have grown together into one giant mushroom. Its eyes have become pure white resembling those of zombies, likely due to its being possessed by the tochukaso.
The mushrooms that grow on Parasect are often prized by collectors.
The mushroom completely takes over its host’s body. Parasect now has more control over it. It still releases irritating spores that can paralyze, poison, or induce sleep in its foes.
Although appearing to be docile, they are actually quite dangerous and will attempt to attack anything that invades their territory. They can use many moves which involve slashing, such as Slash, Cross Poison, and X-Scissor, which makes them quite deadly. Since its evolution, the mushroom is now dictating the actions of the Pokémon in question.
Parasect can often be found in caves, since sunlight and dry air hurt their skin. They can also thrive in dank forests with a suitable amount of humidity, where conditions are ideal for fungi. It is most common in Kanto with a few appearances in Johto, but can be found almost anywhere Paras can be found.

Paras
Ntl. Dex #046
Type: Bug/Grass
Abilities: Effect Spore/Dry Skin
Height: 1’0”
Weight: 11.9 lbs
Paras, the Mushroom Pokemon, is a coconut crab-shaped insectoid creature, with the unique feature of having mushrooms known as tochukaso growing from its back. They grow from spores that are doused on this Pokémon’s back at birth by the mushroom on its parent’s back. The tochukaso can be removed at any time, although researchers suggest that Paras only do so under extreme measures.
Though tochukaso are parasitic in nature, Paras manages to make use of the mushrooms by creating a semi-symbiotic relationship; the mushrooms draw their nutrients from the host Paras’s body in order to grow, and Paras is able to use the mushrooms spores along with its own pincers for self-defense.
Paras may have long life spans, because the tochukaso is known for having properties that are beneficial for longevity.

The mushrooms on its back have a very commanding influence over Paras and order it to extract juice from tree trunks.
It is unknown if Paras eats regular food in the wild or if it gets all of its nutrients from the roots that it sucks, though most of the food is absorbed by the mushrooms on its back. However, they have been known to prey on Weedle.
Paras evolves into Parasect at level 24.

Beedrill

  • Ntl. Dex #015
  • Type: Bug/Poison
  • Abilities: Swarm/Sniper
  • Height: 3’03”
  • Weight: 65.0 lbs

Beedrill, the Poison Bee Pokemon, is the final form of Weedle and Kakuna. It mostly resembles a bipedal wasp; however, it only has four legs instead of six and lacks pigment pits. Beedrill’s head is round with a slightly pointed mouth, with large, shiny red eyes and antennae in the shape of the number 7. Its legs are connected to its body by its thorax, and the first two are tipped with long, conical stingers. It stands on its other two legs, which are long, segmented and insect-like in shape. Beedrill has two pairs of rounded, veined wings, and another stinger on its striped abdomen.

They have incredibly painful stings, and move extremely fast, as well as attack with both stingers. It is able to fire its stinger as a projectile, and regenerate it. They chase after intruders relentlessly in a swarm. 

They are highly territorial and normally live in colonies. Disturbing a swarm of Beedrill will cause the whole colony to attack. Beedrill is depicted as being very quick, so it’s extremely difficult to avoid its attack after approaching its nest.

Like bees, it might be possible that it collects nectar. However, it is also described to use sharp, poisonous stings to defeat prey, and then take the victim back to its nest for food.

Most Beedrill nest in forests and misty wooded areas. They can be encountered in Kanto, specifically the Viridian Forest, and Johto.

Kakuna

  • Ntl. Dex #014
  • Type: Bug/Poison
  • Abilities: Shed Skin
  • Height: 2’00”
  • Weight: 22.0 lbs

Kakuna, the Cocoon Pokemon, is a yellow, cocoon-like Pokémon. Kakuna has a dome-shaped head and black, triangular eyes. It has two scythe-like arms in the middle of its body. When a Kakuna comes close to evolving, its body gives off heat that makes it warm to the touch.

Kakuna is usually only able to harden its shell in order to defend itself. However, Kakuna is capable of moving its poisonous barbs if a situation calls for it.

Kakuna mostly stay still and wait for evolution often hanging from tree branches by long strands of silk.

Kakuna normally doesn’t eat anything. It endures hunger until it is time for Kakuna to evolve.

Kakuna nest in forests and misty wooded areas. Occasionally they will also nest at the mouths of tunnels and caves. Kakuna populate KantoJohto, and occasionally parts of Sinnoh and Unova as well.

Kakuna evolves into Beedrill at level 10.

Butterfree

  • Ntl. Dex #012
  • Type: Bug/Flying
  • Abilities: CompoundEyes/Tinted Lens
  • Height: 3’07”
  • Weight: 70.5 lbs

Butterfree, the Butterfly Pokemon, is the final form of Caterpie and Metapod. It resembles a vaguely anthropomorphic butterfly. Unlike true insects, it only has four legs, which are a pale blue color. It has a nose-like structure, which is a similar color. The coloration of a Butterfree’s body is a darker purple-blue. It has large veined wings, which are white with black markings. These markings can help distinguish male and female individuals. It has large compound eyes that tend to be a reddish color. Like members of the order Lepidoptera, Butterfree’s two pairs of wings are covered in fine scales. Its legs are covered in fine hairs, which aid in the collection of honey.

A female has black spots on the lower parts of her wings.

The waterproof scales on Butterfree’s wings are loosely attached, and if the Butterfree flaps them hard enough, they will be released into the air. This resulting “dust” is toxic, and can be irritating if inhaled. In some cases, additional powders will be mixed in, some causing sleep and others paralysis.

In addition to the usual powers possessed by Bug-type Pokémon, Butterfree also learns a variety of powerful Psychic-type moves.

Butterfree spends most of its time foraging for nectar and pollen, locating the flowers by its sense of smell. In the wild, they need to eat constantly. Special adaptations such as waterproofing on their wings, and tiny hairs on their legs let them gather food even in the rain. Butterfree will roam up to six miles (ten kilometers) from their nest in search of honey.

Butterfree collect and consume pollen and honey from flowers. Butterfree also consume sap from trees if they have been opened by Heracross.

Butterfree can be found in forests and wooded areas with high amounts of moisture and mist. They can also sometimes be found flying near the ocean, which may be part of Butterfree’s migratory breeding pattern. This Pokémon’s natural range includes Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh, Unova.

Weedle

  • Ntl. Dex #013
  • Type: Bug/Poison
  • Abilities: Shield Dust/Run Away
  • Height: 1’00”
  • Weight: 7.1 lbs

Weedle, the Hairy Bug Pokemon, is a small, brown, serpentine larva Pokémon with a segmented body. Weedle has dark, circular eyes, many little pink feet and a pink, round nose. Weedle has a poisonous stinger on both its tail and head. Its bright coloration is intended to warn off its enemies.

Weedle isn’t very powerful, but it can spit a sticky thread to entangle its foes. It can also use one of its two stingers to poison a foe.

Weedle generally prefer to remain undisturbed. They live in colonies with their evolved forms, Kakuna and Beedrill, and will recruit them to assist in their revenge if bothered.

Weedle primarily eat leaves. They appear to prefer some leaves over others, and they can distinguish between them by smelling them with their big red proboscis, or nose. Weedle eats such a copious amount that it eats its weight in leaves every day. It has also been known to eat paper.

Weedle can be found in forests, misty wooded areas, and grasslands. Weedle usually hide in grass and bushes, under the leaves that they eat. They are commonly found in Kanto in the Viridian Forest, and Johto in the Ilex Forest.

Weedle evolves into Kakuna at level 7.

Metapod

  • Ntl. Dex #011
  • Type: Bug
  • Abilities: Shed Skin
  • Height: 2’04”
  • Weight: 21.8 lbs

Metapod, the Cocoon Pokemon is the evolved form of Caterpie. Its soft body is protected by a hard outer shell while it undergoes metamorphosis. While this shell is said to be as hard as steel, a large sudden impact could cause its vulnerable body to pop out, leaving it completely exposed. It shares many physiological and behavioral characteristics with Kakuna, Silcoon and Cascoon suggesting a possible relation between the four.

Metapod possess a very limited range of movement. However, by hardening their outer shell, they can protect themselves from most kinds of enemies.

In order to conserve as much energy as possible, Metapod generally remain motionless. They can be very difficult to spot in the wild, because their green coloration helps them blend in with the treetop canopies. If an enemy discovers Metapod, it is unable to do anything other than harden its outer shell. While this is enough to deter most predators, it does not offer complete protection, as the Metapod’s insides remain soft and vulnerable. Its second line of defense is to drop out of the trees using String Shot. Because of its vulnerability, Metapod evolve rapidly into their final evolutionary stage.

Metapod can often be found in wooded areas, such as Viridian Forest. They dangle themselves from leafy canopies using String Shot. They can be found in Kanto and Johto with reports of them being seen in Sinnoh and Unova as well.

Metapod does not eat. It relies on the energy it stored as a Caterpie.

Metapod evolves into Butterfree at level 10.

Caterpie

  • Ntl. Dex #010
  • Type: Bug
  • Abilities: Shield Dust/Run Away
  • Height: 1’00”
  • Weight: 6.4 lbs

Caterpie, the Worm Pokemon, is serpentine and resembles a green caterpillar with yellow ring-shaped markings down the sides of its body. Its most notable characteristic is the bright red antennae on its head. These and the large eye-shaped markings help to startle predators. It shares many characteristics with other larval Pokémon such as Weedle, Wurmple and Sewaddle.

The antennae on its head will emit a terrible stench from it if the Caterpie is frightened or if the antennae are touched. This serves as an effective protective mechanism against most predators. Its feet are tipped with suction cups, permitting this Pokémon to scale most surfaces with minimal effort. It can also spit a string from its mouth in order to entangle foes.

Caterpie grow very quickly, and need to eat voraciously in order to meet their energy requirements. They have various adaptations that permit them to devour plant material safely, including an antenna that releases a horrible smell. It will shed its skin many times before finally cocooning itself in thick silk. While some Trainers are disgusted by the idea of Bug-type Pokémon, they are ideal targets for new Trainers as they are weak in the wild and evolve into their final forms at a low level.

Caterpie primarily feed on vegetation, such as tree leaves.

Caterpie can often be found in wooded areas, such as the Viridian Forest. It is native to the Kanto and the Johto region, but has also been encountered in Sinnoh as well.

Caterpie evolves into Metapod at level 7.
