Venipede (Japanese: フシデ Fushide) is a / Bug - Poison type Pokémon based on a centipede, introduced in Generation V.
Venipede is a dark purple and green Pokémon with about a third (the head) of it being purple and the rest being a dark green color. It has purple antenna on its top and rear of its face. It has large yellow eyes and some green on its lower torso.
Venipede evolves into Whirlipede at level 22, and then into Scolipede at level 30.
Its bite injects a potent poison, enough to paralyze large bird Pokémon that try to prey on it.
It discovers what is going on around it by using the feelers on its head and tail. It is brutally aggresive.
While it's similar to Weedle and Wurmple in nature, it doesn't evolve as fast as either of them, evolving at level 22 rather than level 7.
Its name comes from the words venom, meaning poison, and centipede, meaning 100-legged insect.
