Ariados (Japanese: アリアドス Ariados) is a dual-type Bug/Poison Pokémon.

It evolves from Spinarak starting at level 22.

Biology

Physiology

Ariados is a spider-like Pokémon in appearance. It has a red body with black stripes and an unhappy face on its abdomen. Ariados has four yellow legs with purple stripes; its fifth and sixth legs seem to have been moved onto its back.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Ariados's feet are tipped with tiny hooked claws that enable it to scuttle on ceilings and vertical walls. It spins a single strand of a special string endlessly out of its rear. The string leads back to its nest. The string can also be spun from its mouth. It is hard to tell which end is which. This Pokémon constricts the foe with its webbing.

Ariados, and its pre-evolution, Spinarak, are the only known Pokémon that learn Spider Web.

Behavior

Rather than making a nest in one specific spot, it wanders in search of food after darkness falls. It will attach silk to its prey and set it free. Later, it tracks the silk to the prey and its friends.

Habitat

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

It is certain that it is a hunter. It is one of the few Pokémon that has been depicted catching other Pokémon to consume.

Minor appearances

In Following a Maiden's Voyage, some Ariados attacked Dawn and her Piplup. Several Ariados attacked Dawn and her Piplup again in Stopped in the Name of Love. Even more Ariados attacked Dawn and Piplup in Historical Mystery Tour.

An Ariados owned by J appeared in Mutiny in the Bounty! As J proceeds to steal her victims' Pokémon, she has her Ariados tie up her victims with String Shot. J's Ariados also made a short appearance in Pillars of Friendship!, where J told it to use String Shot to tie up Ash and co. and prevent them from stopping the Regi Trio and Regigigas as well.

In Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part One, Kellyn used his Capture Styler on an Ariados and had it use String Shot on some Crobats that belonged to Hunter J's Henchmen.

In One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team, Angie used an Ariados in the first leg of the Pokémon Triathlon.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
EP176 Ariados Ash's Pokédex Ariados, the Long Leg Pokémon. The evolved form of Spinarak. Ariados is able to spin extremly strong and sticky webs to trap its adversaries.
This concludes the entries from the original series.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Since Volume 11, Janine is seen with an Ariados. She uses its string to help her scale buildings. It appears once again in Volume 13, when she uses it to take on Falkner. She explains here that Ariados can spit string for making webs using its spinneret, as well as spit a different type of thread for attacking from its mouth. This second type of thread is so sharp, it even cracks the metal body of Falkner's Skarmory.

The Masked Man also has an Ariados, seen during his first appearance in Ilex Forest. He uses an Ariados to combat Celebi due to the type advantages it has over it.

Pokédex entries

Manga Chapter Entry
Pokémon Adventures PS156 It can produce spider web from both its mouth and spinneret. It's difficult to even differentiate the head from its back, where the spinneret is located.*

Trivia

  • Ariados is one of the few Pokémon whose sprites in both Gold and Silver are the same.
  • Despite its name and resemblance to the spider, Ariados lacks the 8 legs required to be a true arachnid.

Origin

Ariados's appearance is based on the Myrmarachne formicaria spider, but with the prosoma and opisthosoma reversed, fitting with its Pokédex entry.

Name origin

Ariados's name is probably derived from arachnid, Latin for spider or Ariadne. Dos could be from the Japanese 脅す odosu, to threaten. Alternatively, dos may refer to the Spanish word for two, used possibly because it has two stingers, or because it is the second form in its evolutionary line.
