Combee (Japanese: ミツハニー Mitsuhoney) is a dual-type Bug/Flying Pokémon.

Female Combee evolves into Vespiquen starting at level 21. Male Combee are not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Combee is a small insectoid Pokémon that resembles three pieces of orange, hexagonal honeycomb stuck together. Each hexagon has a round yellow face. The bottom-center face being the main thinker of the three is also the only one "bee" to have a full abdomen. The top two hexagons have a single antenna and a wing connected to an orange-colored joint.

Since Combee is a Bee Pokémon, it has been considered as a distant cousin of the Weedle family, mainly Beedrill.

Gender differences

Male Combee do not evolve. The lower face of a female Combee has a red spot on its forehead (which would become the red jewel on the head of a Vespiquen).

Special abilities

Combee can fly with its two wings as long as the top two "bees" co-ordinate their flapping. Combee's skills in battle are very limited, since it is only capable of learning a small handful of moves. Using its wings it can whip up fast winds to attack, and can also distract Pokémon with the sweet smell of its honey. More recently Combee and other Bug-type Pokémon have been found to have the ability to bite opponents and eat a Berry they may be holding.

Through specialized training Combee are capable of learning a wider selection of attacks including Mud-Slap and Ominous Wind in the Johto or Sinnoh region, but such tutoring has not yet been successful in any of the other regions. However, it is clear from the nature of many of these attacks that they are beyond the natural capabilities of wild Combee anyway.

Combee also have abilities untapped by Trainers. Only through the orders of a Combee's queen can its powerful attacking skills, strong defensive maneuvers and expertise in healing be unlocked.

Behavior

A wall of Combee

Combee are mostly sociable among their own kind. They are generally harmless and when threatened will usually run away. A Combee will almost always be found collecting honey wherever they can.

The rare times they are not gathering honey, they are sleeping or protecting their queen Vespiquen. The former is done by creating a hive out of themselves and other Combee, locking together and feeling safe in larger numbers.

Combee are very suggestible creatures and will never defy the orders of its queen. When a Vespiquen feels threatened, its subject Combee will not think twice about risking their own lives and forming a Combee wall to protect the queen, then attacking and even killing the threat in an aggressive manner.

Habitat

Combee will commonly make residence in caves and hollow trees of forests and other natural, secluded areas with their queen Vespiquen. When a group of Combee aren't being led by a queen, they will usually create a make-shift hive (out of their own bodies) anywhere they feel safe.

Diet
