Parasect (Japanese: パラセクト Parasekuto) is a Bug/Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Parasect, like its pre-evolution Paras, is a crab-like Pokémon. Parasect has a large red-orange-spotted mushroom on its back and six legs. Parasect's two front legs are larger than its other four, which are used for gripping its prey.

Behavior

It has been shown in Pokédex entries that Parasect gather in groups to feeds off of the nutrients from trees (mostly the bark and roots).

Natural abilities

Parasect can have two of the following abilities, either Effect Spore or Dry Skin. Effect Spore allows Parasect to have a 10% chance to paralyze, burn or poison a foe. Dry Skin allows Parasect to recover HP when it is raining and lose HP when it is sunny.

Evolution

Parasect is the evolved form of Paras as of level 24.

Trivia

  • The Pokémon Stadium Pokédex entry states that Parasect's spores are used as medicine in China, showing that there are similarities in regions with the real world and Pokémon world. China is also referenced in one of Arcanine's Pokédex entries.
  • Until Generation II, Parasect, and its pre-evolution were the only known Pokémon to have a double weakness to Fire.
  • If this pokèmon has Dry Skin, it will have a 5x weakness to Fire.
  • Parasect had the same cry as Mewtwo, but at a lower pitch before Generation VI.
  • Parasect and its pre-evolution Paras have a unique egg group combo (Bug & Grass).
  • In Generation I, Paras and Parasect were the only dual Grass-types with Grass as their secondary type.

Origin

Parasect appears to be based on a cicada nymph with some traits of a crab. The mushroom growing on its back is a Tochukaso mushroom.

Etymology

Parasect comes from "parasite" and "insect".
