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

Silcoon is a cocoon-like Pokémon that uses silk to attach itself to tree branches. It has a small hole in its cocoon that it can see through with its two red eyes with a fringe over each eye. It has a hard cocoon that it can use to repel enemy attacks. It conserves its energy by moving as little as possible. Silcoon lives in forests. It nourishes itself by drinking dew and rainwater that gets collected on its silk.

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.

Trivia

  • Silcoon shares its species name with Metapod, Kakuna, and Cascoon. They are all known as the Cocoon Pokémon.
    • They also share the same base stat total, learnset, Ability, and EV yield.
      • This ties them as the evolved Pokémon with the lowest base stat total.
  • Silcoon and Cascoon have the exact same type, base stats, moveset, and body style, making them nearly identical.
  • Silcoon, along with Cascoon, can be seen without the limb protrusions on its body in the anime, Pokémon X and Y, and occasionally in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
    • However, James's Pokémon trivia cards showed that Silcoon and Cascoon indeed have those limbs.

Origin

Silcoon is based on the chrysalis or cocoon stage of a butterfly or moth; more specifically, the silkworm cocoon.

Name origin

Silcoon is a combination of silk and cocoon.

Karasalis may be a combination of 殻 kara (shell) and chrysalis.
