Trivia

  • While it seems to be a counterpart to Swadloon, it evolves through leveling instead of friendship.
  • 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.
  • Whirlipede 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.
