Cascoon (Japanese: マユルド Mayuld) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Wurmple starting at level 7, and it evolves into Dustox starting at level 10.

Biology

Physiology

Cascoon is very similar to Silcoon in design, being a cocoon-like Pokémon with two red eyes and limbs to attach itself to tree branches. However, it has a slightly darker, more purple coloration.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Cascoon has a tough cocoon, built to repel attacks taken from enemies. It can endure all attacks until evolution, where it can seek revenge.

Behavior

It remains motionless while hanging from a tree inside its cocoon. It does not stir even if it is attacked, in which case Cascoon hardens. If it were to flinch in the slightest way, it would have insufficient strength upon evolution. However, once it evolves, it is hostile towards those who attacked it. To avoid detection by its enemies, it hides motionlessly beneath large leaves and in the gaps of branches. It also attaches dead leaves to its body for camouflage. It is hot inside its cocoon, and all the cells in Cascoon's body create the energy for it to evolve. When cracks appear, evolution is near.

Habitat

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

Major appearances

Jessie's Cascoon

Jessie's Wurmple evolved into Cascoon in A Corphish out of Water. Jessie thought it was a Silcoon, however. Because of this, James and Meowth were worried that Jessie would be furious when Cascoon evolved into Dustox.

Ruby Cascoon makes its protective cocoon by wrapping its body entirely with a fine silk from its mouth. Once the silk goes around its body, it hardens. This Pokémon prepares for its evolution inside the cocoon.
Sapphire If it is attacked, Cascoon remains motionless however badly it may be hurt. It does so because if it were to move, its body would be weak upon evolution. This Pokémon will also not forget the pain it endured.
Emerald To avoid detection by its enemies, it hides motionlessly beneath large leaves and in the gaps of branches. It also attaches dead leaves to its body for camouflage.
FireRed Its body, which is made of soft silk, hardens over time. When cracks appear, evolution is near.

Diamond It is hot inside its cocoon. All the cells in its body create the energy for it to evolve.
Pearl Encased within its tough cocoon, it endures attacks. It never forgets the appearance of its foes.
Platinum It never forgets any attack it endured while in the cocoon. After evolution, it seeks payback.
HeartGold It endures attacks with patience, because the more pain before evolution, the sturdier it becomes.

Trivia

  • Cascoon shares the same species name with Metapod, Kakuna, and Silcoon. They are all known as Cocoon Pokémon.
  • Cascoon and Silcoon have the exact same base stats.
  • Cascoon, Vigoroth, and Seadra are the only Pokémon that lose their pre-evolution's ability, then regain it upon evolution to their final form. (Wurmple and Dustox have the same ability, Shield Dust.)
  • In Pokémon Platinum, Cascoon can learn Bug Bite by evolution from Wurmple, despite not having a visible mouth.
  • In the anime, Cascoon, along with Silcoon was depicted without the limbs protrusions on their bodies. This was the only time when they did this.
    • However, James's cards containing info about Pokémon showed that Silcoon and Cascoon have those limbs.
  • Cascoon is the only cocoon Pokémon whose Defense stat does not decrease upon evolution.


Origin

Cascoon is based on the chrysalis or cocoon stage of a butterfly or moth.

Name origin

Cascoon's name is likely a combination of cask and cocoon. It could also be derived from cast, a shell meant for immobilizing part of the body or the method of creating said shell.

Mayuld is based on 繭 mayu, cocoon, and shield.
