Vespiquen (Japanese: ビークイン Beequeen) is a dual-type Bug/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from female Combee starting at level 21.

Biology

Physiology

Vespiquen is a four-foot-tall bee Pokémon with a yellow and black striped abdomen that resembles an elegant ballroom gown. The underside of her expansive abdomen has sections like honeycomb cells, and can serve as a nest for baby Combee. It does appear, however, that she has a regular, slender insect abdomen in the centermost cell, which is inconspicuous as the ‘skirt’ usually obstructs the view of it. She has black, skinny arms with two orange claws and flies with a pair of small (compared to her body) wings on her orange shoulders. She has a nearly spherical yellow-colored upper body and a slender black waist. Vespiquen also has an orange face with red intimidating eyes, oversized, yellow-colored protruding mandibles, a red gem on her forehead that has grown significantly since she was a Combee and a "helmet" with yellow and black "horn" like projections.

Gender differences

Vespiquen is a female-only species.

Special abilities

Vespiquen has three separate signature moves that involve summoning a swarm of baby Combee, which she stores in her honeycomb-like lower abdomen. One is for attacking, the second is for defending and the third is for recovering.

Behavior

Vespiquen are queens of hives of Combee, controlling it and protecting it, as well as giving birth to young Combee. A Vespiquen is far more powerful than her followers. However, if someone defends her hive and helps her, she may reward them.

Habitat

Vespiquen live in huge hives in the forests with their Combee followers.
