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 to grip its prey.
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.
Parasect is the evolved form of Paras as of level 24.
