Silcoon (Japanese: カラサリス Karasalis) 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 Beautifly starting at level 10.

Contents

Biology

Silcoon is a cocoon-like Pokémon that uses silk to attach itself to tree branches. It is almost completely covered in white silk with only two small holes. A pair of red eyes can be seen through the holes, but they are partially hidden by a rough fringe of silk. The silk forms a hard cocoon that it can use to repel enemy attacks. Dew and rainwater collect on the silk, which provides Silcoon with nourishment. Silcoon lives in forests, where it conserves energy by moving as little as possible.

Trivia

  • Silcoon shares its category with Metapod, Kakuna, and Cascoon. 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.
  • Silcoon and Cascoon have exactly the same type, base stats, moveset, and shape, making them nearly identical.
  • Silcoon, along with Cascoon, can be seen without the limb protrusions on its body in the anime, Pokémon X and Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and occasionally in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
    • However, James' Pokémon trivia cards showed that Silcoon and Cascoon indeed have those limbs.

Origin

Silcoon appears to be based on a silkworm cocoon due to its white color.

Name origin

Silcoon may be a combination of silk and cocoon.

Karasalis may be a combination of 殻 kara and chrysalis.
