Metapod (Japanese: トランセル Trancell) is a Bug-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Caterpie starting at level 7 and evolves into Butterfree starting at level 10.

BiologyEdit

Metapod resembles a chrysalis. Its soft body is protected by a hard outer shell while it undergoes metamorphosis. While this shell is said to be as hard as steel, a sudden, powerful impact could cause its tender body to pop out, leaving it completely exposed. Metapod generally remains motionless, preparing its soft innards for evolution inside its hard shell. If an enemy discovers Metapod, it is unable to do anything other than harden its outer shell. Metapod lives in forests.

TriviaEdit

  • Metapod shares its category name with Kakuna, Silcoon, 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.
  • Metapod is usually depicted with white sclerae, such as in the games, trading cards, and promotional illustrations, but it has yellow sclerae in the anime.

OriginEdit

It to be based upon an amalgamation of butterfly chrysalises, resembling the general shape of a Black Swallowtail chrysalis (or possibly a Large White) with a large nose-like protrusion and side portrusions resembling a Polydamas Swallowtail or Pipevine Swallowtail chrysalis.

Name originEdit

Metapod is a combination of metamorphosis and pod (referring to its chrysalis state).

Trancell appears to be a combination of transform and cell or shell.
