Casey's Beedrill (Japanese: ナナコのスピアー Nanako's Spear) was initially caught by Ash but later given to Casey.

History

Original series

Ash caught Beedrill in the Bug-Catching Contest in The Bug Stops Here. In capturing it, he won the contest, and, according to the rules, the winner can keep the Pokémon he or she caught. However, Ash gave it to Casey afterwards because of her love for yellow and black-striped Pokémon. It has since become one of her three main Pokémon, along with Meganium and Elekid.

Advanced Generation series

It appeared again in Those Darn Electabuzz!, where it was seen sleeping with Meganium and Elekid, and got angry when Don, a Charizard, was on a rampage. It also cheered the Electabuzz baseball team theme song with Casey and her other Pokémon.

Personality and characteristics

Due to appearing only very shortly before being caught, Beedrill's original nature remains uncertain, although it was shown possessing agressive characterics typical to its species while attacking Ash. After joining Casey's team, it seems to have adapted Casey's confident and cheerful attitude, eagerly joining Casey, Meganium, and Elekid in performing the Electabuzz theme song.
