Cascoon (Japanese: マユルド Mayuld) is a Bug-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Wurmple depending on its personality value, starting at level 7, and it evolves into Dustox starting at level 10.

Contents

Biology

Cascoon is a round, cocoon-like Pokémon. It is covered in purple silk, except for two holes where its red eyes are visible. The soft silk hardens into a tough cocoon that is able to endure attacks, and Cascoon will not move even when it is attacked. However, it never forgets the pain it endures and seeks revenge upon evolution. It lives in forests, where it hides underneath large leaves and inside the gaps of tree branches. Additionally, it camouflages itself by attaching dead leaves to its body. As its cells create energy for evolution, the inside of the cocoon becomes hot. Cracks start to form in its casing when evolution is near.

Major appearances

Jessie's Cascoon

In A Corphish out of Water, Jessie's Wurmple evolved into a Cascoon, but she thought it was a Silcoon. As a result, James and Meowth were left worried about Jessie's rage when Cascoon evolved into a Dustox. Fortunately, Jessie was ultimately not disappointed when Cascoon did indeed evolve.

Other

In Best Friend...Worst Nightmare!, Goh's three Wurmple all evolved into Cascoon. They reappeared in A Snow Day for Searching!. In Panic in the Park!, they all evolved into Dustox.

Minor appearances

In Serving Up the Flute Cup!, Goh fantasized about a Silcoon while revealing the three Wurmple he caught could evolve into them.

In JN033, a Cascoon was part of Koromi's Bug-type Pokémon collection, as shown in her Rotom Phone.

Ruby Cascoon makes its protective cocoon by wrapping its body entirely with a fine silk from its mouth. Once the silk goes around its body, it hardens. This Pokémon prepares for its evolution inside the cocoon.
Sapphire If it is attacked, Cascoon remains motionless however badly it may be hurt. It does so because if it were to move, its body would be weak upon evolution. This Pokémon will also not forget the pain it endured.
Emerald To avoid detection by its enemies, it hides motionlessly beneath large leaves and in the gaps of branches. It also attaches dead leaves to its body for camouflage.
FireRed Its body, which is made of soft silk, hardens over time. When cracks appear, evolution is near.

Trivia

  • Cascoon shares its category with Metapod, Kakuna, and Silcoon. They are all known as the Cocoon Pokémon.
    • They also share the same base stat total, learnset, Ability, and EV yield.
      • This ties them as the evolved Pokémon with the lowest base stat total.
  • Cascoon and Silcoon have exactly the same type, base stats, moveset, and shape, making them nearly identical.
  • Cascoon, along with Silcoon, can be seen without the limb protrusions on its body in the anime, all core series games from X and Y onward, and occasionally in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
    • However, James's Pokémon trivia cards showed that Silcoon and Cascoon indeed have those limbs.
  • Cascoon is the only Bug-type cocoon-based Pokémon whose Defense stat does not decrease upon evolution.
  • Cascoon is the only Pokémon found in a Friend Safari that is not its own type; it is found in the Poison-type Friend Safari even though Cascoon is pure Bug. However, it evolves into the Poison-type Dustox.

Origin

Cascoon appears to be based on a moth cocoon.

Name origin

Cascoon may be a combination of cask, cast, or casca, and cocoon.

Mayuld may be a combination of 繭 mayu and shield.
