Dewpider (Japanese: シズクモ Shizukumo) is a dual-type Water/Bug Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves into Araquanid starting at level 22.

Biology

Dewpider is a Pokémon resembling a spider with a water bubble over its head. Its head and most of its abdomen are dark gray, while its thorax and six legs are light green. All of its legs are thin with a knobby joint in the middle, and three of its legs are typically used to anchor the bubble on its head. The green on its thorax extends onto its abdomen in three triangular markings. There are also several triangular flaps that extend upward and attach to the bubble over its head. The head itself has large light blue eyes with darker pupils and sclerae, two blue bumps on top, and a light green mouth similar to a spinneret. There is an actual spinneret on the tip of its abdomen, which the anime has shown as capable of producing both silk and water bubbles.

Dewpider can only breathe oxygen dissolved in water, so the bubble over its head allows it to breathe on land. Additionally, the bubble provides protection to its soft head and can be slammed into both prey and enemies. If two Dewpider meet, they compare bubbles and the one with the smaller bubble will move out of the way.

Major appearances

Multiple Dewpider debuted in Dewpider Ascending!, where they were told by their parent Araquanid to leave the nest and find their own places to call home. One Dewpider got separated from the group and came across Lana. Upon seeing Lana with a balloon on her head because of Popplio, it developed a crush on her. It then tried to find a new home, eventually finding one near the Pokémon School, but it had to battle a wild Surskit that already lived there. Dewpider lost the battle, but when Surskit evolved into a Masquerain, it happily abandoned its home and flew off, allowing Dewpider to live there. Earlier, it challenged two other Dewpider over territory, only to lose.

Ultra Sun When two Dewpider meet, they display their water bubbles to each other. Then the one with the smaller bubble gets out of the other's way.
Ultra Moon It can only breathe oxygen that has dissolved in water, so it wears a water bubble on its head when it walks around on land.

Trivia

Origin

Dewpider may be based on the diving bell spider, a spider that lives primarily underwater, gathering air into a bubble around its abdomen to breathe and provide an air supply to its nest.

Name origin

Dewpider may be a combination of dew and spider or refer to dewdrop spiders.

Shizukumo may be a combination of 滴 shizuku (water droplet), 蜘蛛 kumo (spider), and 水蜘蛛 mizugumo (diving bell spider).
