Metapod (Japanese: トランセル Transel) is a Grass-type Stage 1 Pokémon card. It was first released as part of the Base Set.
This card was included in the Base Set, first released in the Japanese Expansion Pack. It was reprinted in the Base Set 2 and Legendary Collection expansions.
Early prints had the HP read "HP 70" instead of "70 HP".
Stun Spore is a move in the Pokémon games that Metapod cannot learn until it evolves into Butterfree. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, though it is slightly reworded. The Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
