001Bulbasaur RG.png Due to special coding in place in the article, the artwork featured on this article will change every year on February 27 and September 30 in celebration of the releases of Red and Green in Japan, and Red and Blue in the United States. This will only affect the artwork shown in the infobox. This changes every year, so when the time comes, here to return to the page and change the display.


Am I the only one who sees Beedrill as being based off of Knights? It just seems fairly obvious, yet there's nothing on this page listed.

  • Examples: its stance/how it is portrayed, its lance-like stingers, the many Pokedex descriptions that not only apply to bees and hornets but fairly accurately describe jousting (see: Crystal, R/S/E, D/P/Pt), the fact that its Japanese name is Spear (a weapon used by Jousting Knights in lieu of lances), the fact that many Knights served as protectors of their lord and/or lady's lands (the nest) and attacked either solo or in groups (like the Pokedex descriptions), the fact that many European castles were built near forests or coasts (both of which are prone to fog), and the style of attacks it learns (rage, fury attack, focus energy, pursuit, etc.).
  • Yes, it is quite obviously based off of bees and wasps, but I find it hard to believe that I'm the absolute only person out there that has even considered that Knights played any sort of factor in its creation. Can anyone else see where I'm coming from with this, and is there any way we can officially confirm if it is or is not partially based off of Knights? Crenel 07:23, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Phantom's Beedrill?

I thought it was his first mate that used them? Missingno. Master says: The Celebi Glitch is real!(talk page) 17:16, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Valid enough to be added?

It is valid enough to be added that despite being Bug and Poison type, Beedrill only learns two Big and Poison type moves via level up?--Miles Castea 04:36, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

It's valid (as in, true), but not notable. There are quite a few Pokémon in the same or similar situations. Bulbapedia typically only mentions those who either learn no moves of their type or those who learn one move and a bunch of other moves of one specific non-STAB type. —darklordtrom 05:33, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
