Trivia

  • Pineco looks just like a pinecone, hence the name.
  • Despite resembling a steel pinecone, it is not Steel or Grass type.
  • Pineco shares its category with Burmy as they are both known as the Bagworm Pokemon.

Origin

Despite looking like a pinecone, Pineco is actually a bagworm (possibly an evergreen bagworm) disguising as a pinecone.

Etymology

Pineco simply comes from a shortening of pinecone.
