Spinarak (Japanese: イトマル Itomaru) is a dual-type Bug/Poison Pokémon.

It evolves into Ariados starting at level 22.

Biology

Spinarak is a green, arachnoid Pokémon. Its black eyes have white centers, and it has six yellow legs with black stripes. The spots on Spinarak's abdomen resemble a face. Spinarak has a white horn on its head and red mandibles. It is a patient hunter that can stand motionlessly for several days as it waits for unsuspecting prey to be trapped in its web. Spinarak is even said to be able to identify which kind of prey is in its web just by their vibrations. Spinarak lives in forests and makes its nest using thin yet strong silk.
