Silcoon (Japanese: カラサリス Karasarisu) is a Bug-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Silcoon is a small, ovular, fuzzy pupal Pokémon wrapped in soft silky fibers. The silk covering its ovular body is pure white, and it has spikes protruding from every side. It has two round red eyes protruding from beneath the mass of fluffy silk on its face.

Behavior

Because it is in a pupal form, encased in a silky chrysalis, Silcoon barely moves. It tethers itself to tree branches to keep from falling and silently waits for its evolution into Beautifly.

Evolution

Silcoon is one of the two evolved forms of Wurmple and the pre-evolved form of Beautifly. It evolves from Wurmple at level 7 and evolves into Beautifly at level 10.

Appearances

Anime

May's Beautifly used to be a Silcoon. Silcoon helped May in the episode Mudkip Mission when it used its String Shot to climb a cliff.

Trivia

Origin

Silcoon is based on a chrysalis (as it evolves into Beautifly, a butterfly-based Pokémon).

Etymology

Silcoon's name is derived from the words "silk" and "cocoon" (despite the fact that moths form cocoons, and butterflies form chrysalises).
