Silcoon (Japanese: カラサリス Karasalis) is a Bug-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Wurmple depending on its personality value, starting at level 7, and it evolves into Beautifly starting at level 10.

Biology

Physiology

Silcoon is a cocoon-like Pokémon with limbs which it uses to attach itself to tree branches. There is a small hole in its cocoon that it can see through with its two red eyes with a fringe over each eye. It is very similar to Cascoon.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Silcoon has a hard cocoon that can repel enemy attacks.

Behavior

Silcoon, being merely a cocoon, cannot do much more than quietly hang from a tree branch using String Shot, waiting for the right conditions for evolution. It hardens frequently.

Habitat

Silcoon prefer to live in dark forests. They prefer to hide and can be rare to find.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Silcoon nourishes itself by drinking dew and rainwater that gets collected on its silk. It also uses the energy it stored as a Wurmple to survive. It's also been found on Honey trees. It is unknown if it is eating the honey or if it evolved on the tree while it was eating it as a Wurmple.

Major appearances

May's Silcoon

In A Corphish out of Water, May's Wurmple evolved into a Silcoon alongside Jessie's Wurmple which evolved into a Cascoon. Both promptly evolved into their current state in Seeing is Believing, where Silcoon evolved into May's Beautifly and Cascoon evolved into Jessie's Dustox.
