This Beedrill is a bug/poison-type Pokémon owned by Giovanni. It has the ability to Mega Evolve.


Giovanni caught Beedrill in Viridian Forest, where it evolved.[1]


Giovanni cornered Red to the walls of the Gym, as Giovanni forced Red to surrender.[2] Red refused, as he touched the Poké Ball with his foot and sent Aerodactyl. Aerodactyl carried Red off and used Hyper Beam, which defeated Beedrill.[3]

To stop Lance, Giovanni's Beedrill fired Twineedle on two of Lance's Dragonair. With Lance down, Beedrill intimidated the Elite Four member.[1] After Lance obtained Giovanni's Earth Badge, Lance's Dragonite rescued Lance, causing Beedrill to fall down.[4]


Giovanni sent his Beedrill, after he sensed an intruder nearby. The intruder stood hidden and silent, so Giovanni went away with Sird, Carr and Orm after the threat was gone.[5]

Kanto II

Beedrill went with Giovanni to capture Deoxys.[6] He had Beedrill use Agility to provoke Deoxys into lowering its defense to have Aggron use Brick Break.[7]

Hoenn II

Beedrill was with Giovanni, who welcomed Red, Green, Blaise and Amber, stating he was here to help save the planet.[8][9]
