Whirlipede (Japanese: ホイーガ Hoiiga) is a Bug/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V. It is used in-game by Gym Leader Burgh.


Whirlipede is a purple and black Pokémon with antenna on its face and lower body. In the center is a large yellow eye and around it is some black. It has light purple scales and on these scales are little red circles. Its curled-up body makes it look like a tire.


Whirlipede is the middle evolution in the series of centipede like Pokémon, evolving from Venipede at level 22 then into Scolipede at level 30.

  • 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 it's 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 it's 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.
