Beedrill (Japanese: スピアー Subiaa) is a Bug/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Beedrill is an insect-like Pokémon with the appearance of a very large wasp. However, unlike a wasp, Beedrill only has four limbs, with the front-most limbs featuring two large, spear-like stingers. A third stinger is located on its tail end. The shiny version of a Beedrill is a light green color with blue eyes instead of red.They are aggressive Pokémon and collectively attack at the people.

Special abilities

Beedrill has the ability Swarm, which increases any Bug-type attacks by 1.5 if the user's HP drops below 1/3 its max amount.

According to the Pokédex, Beedrill can fly at great speeds and can attack in swarms. Additionally, its three stingers all secrete a toxic poison, with the stinger on its tail being the most venomous.

Evolution

Beedrill is the final evolution of Weedle and evolves from Kakuna at level 10. Beedrill gains a Mega Evolution in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Casey Beedrill

Casey's Beedrill from the anime

Main article: Casey's Beedrill

Beedrill debuted in the episode Challenge of the Samurai, where a number of Beedrill evolved from Kakuna and took Ash Ketchum's Metapod.

A running gag throughout the course of the series features characters disturbing a Beedrill's hive and then being chased by the swarm of Beedrill.

Ash owned a Beedrill for one episode in The Bug Stops Here. He caught this Pokémon during a Bug-Catching Contest. It was then given to Casey, since she is a fan of yellow-black striped Pokémon. Casey is seen using this Beedrill in the episode Those Darn Electabuzz.

Trivia

  • Originally, Beedrill's name was supposed to have one letter "L", rather than two.
  • Despite being able to fly, Beedrill is not a Flying-type nor does it have the ability Levitate, making it susceptible to Ground-type moves.
  • Beedrill is the only member of its evolution family to be featured in the spin-off crossover game Pokémon Conquest.

Etymology

  • English: Beedrill's English name is a combination of the words "Bee" and "Drill".
  • Japanese: Its Japanese name, "Spear", is in reference to its spear-like stingers.
  • French: "Dardargnan" is a combination of the word "dard" (sting) and the name "D'artagnan" from the famous fencer appearing in Alexandre Dumas' novel The Three Musqueteers.
