Biology

Physiology

Whirlipede is a large arthropod Pokémon that resembled a curled-up centipede. Its rolled-up body is segmented. It is mainly purple and black with long spine-like appendages on its front and lower body. Its body is covered in smaller purple spikes. In the center of its body is its large yellow eye. It has light purple scales; on these scales are small red circles. Its curled-up body gives it the appearance of a tire.

Trivia

  • Although it's similar to Kakuna and Cascoon in nature, it does not evolve from its previous form nor into its final form quite as fast as them.

Origin

Whirlipede is based on a curled-up centipede. It looks similar to a wheel.

Whirlipede's appearance is somewhat related to what an ordinary insect will go through at its basic form, which is Venipede, which looks like a centipede, then Whirlipede, which is like Venipede coiling up to begin the stage of development in real life, then evolving to Scolipede, which is the mature centipede.

Etymology

Whirlipede's English name is derived from the words "whirl" and "centipede".
