Kakuna (Japanese: コクーン Kokuun) is a Bug/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Kakuna is an insect-like Pokémon with an appearance similar to that of a yellow chrysalis. As a chrysalis, the interior of Kakuna's very hard shell is unseen, with no limbs or other features being shown. Only Kakuna's eyes, jet black in color, are visible from the shell, which are somewhat large in proportion to its body. In Pokémon Red and Blue Versions, Kakuna had arm-like limbs, which were never seen afterwards.

Special abilitiesEdit

All Kakuna have the ability Shed Skin, which allows for a 1/3 chance that a status effect will be dropped each turn.

As Kakuna are inside of a shell, they have little or no movement and almost no offensive capabilities. As a defensive measure, they can harden their shells against an attacker and may even be able to use Poison Sting.

EvolutionEdit

Kakuna evolves from Weedle as of level 7 and evolves into Beedrill at level 10.

TriviaEdit

  • Kakuna, Metapod, Silcoon, and Cascoon are all known as the Cocoon Pokémon.
    • Consistently all of them can only use Harden when caught in wild.
  • Despite its mouth not being outside, it can still learn Bug Bite via the Move Tutor in Pokémon Platinum.
  • Kokoon was the original prototype name for Kakuna.
  • Kakuna seems to have a shape that resembles a necktie under its head.

Kakuna's English and Japanese names are based on the word "cocoon", though the English name is more of a distorted version of the word. This applies for the species of Kakuna being a cocoon.
