Both share the {{t|Grass}} type and, the same base stat totalstotal of 405, evolve at Level 24, both are mushroom-based Pokemon and thus can learn {{m|Spore}}, and both appeared as trial Pokémon of the [[Lush Jungle]] in [[Pokémon Sun and Moon]] depending on the game version, with Shiinotic being found in Pokémon Moon and Parasect in Pokémon Sun.
 
===Origin===
Shiinotic may be based on bioluminescent mushrooms such as those of the genus ''{{wp|Mycena}}''. It also features a volvalvulval sac and wide -brimmed warty cap, which are trademarks of the ''{{wp|Amanita}}'' family. Its {{t|Fairy}} type may be due to the fact that both families are known to grow in fairy rings, or it may possibly be a reference to {{wp|fairy fire}}. From its name, Shiinotic may have some aspects of the {{wp|shiitake}} mushroom as well. Due to its habits of confusing people in the woods with its lights, it may also be based offon the supernatural interpretation of {{wp|will-o'-the-wisp}}s.
 
Due to its emphasis on shining light, and some of its foreign names including it, Shiinotic may also intentionally resemble a {{wp|Light fixture|lamp}}.
