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

Appearance

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.

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.

In the anime

Casey Beedrill

Casey's Beedrill from the anime

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.

Evolution

Beedrill is the final evolution of Weedle and evolves from Kakuna at level 10.

Origins

Beedrill appears to be based on a bee or wasp.

Name origins

  • 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.

Trivia

  • Originally, Beedrill's name was supposed to have one letter "L", rather than two.
  • Despite not being affected by sleeping moves in the anime, Beedrill does not have the ability Soundproof.
  • 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.
