Caterpie (Japanese: キャタピー Caterpie) is a Bug-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Metapod starting at level 7, which evolves into Butterfree starting at level 10.

BiologyEdit

Caterpie is a Pokémon that resembles a green caterpillar. There yellow ring-shaped markings down the sides of its body, which resemble its large yellow eyes. Its most notable characteristic is the bright red antenna (osmeterium) on its head, which releases a stench to repel predators. This structure and the large eye-shaped markings help to startle predators. Its feet are tipped with suction cups, permitting this Pokémon to scale most surfaces with minimal effort.

Caterpie will shed its skin many times before finally cocooning itself in thick silk. It can also spit this silk in order to entangle foes. Its primary diet is vegetation, and its voracious appetite causes it to eat leaves larger than itself. Caterpie lives in forests.

TriviaEdit

OriginEdit

Caterpie is a stylized caterpillar, most resembling an Eastern tiger swallowtail caterpillar with the coloration of a Spicebush Swallowtail. Its "antenna" is an osmeterium, an organ unique to swallowtail caterpillars which, like Caterpie, they use to emit a foul odor. The tip of Caterpie's tail resembles the horn at the rear end of most species of hawk moth larvae.

Name originEdit

Caterpie is a corruption of caterpillar.
