Trivia
Paras is an orange, insectoid creature resembling the nymph stage of a {{wp|cicada}}. Its ovoid body is segmented, and it has three pairs of legs. The foremost pair of legs is the largest and has sharp claws at the tips. There are five specks on its forehead and three teeth on either side of its mouth. It has circular eyes with large pupils.
 
Red-and-yellow mushrooms known as [[tochukaso]] grow on this Pokémon's back. The mushrooms can be removed at any time, and grow from spores that are doused on this Pokémon's back at birth by the mushroom on its mother's back. Tochukaso are parasitic in nature, drawing their nutrients from the host Paras's body in order to grow and exerting some command over the Pokémon's actions. For example, Paras drains nutrients from tree roots due to commands from the mushrooms. The mushrooms are also popular among collectors and have medicinal uses, usually involving extended life. The mushrooms are also the source of its former [[signature move]], {{m|Spore}}.
 
[[EP006|The anime]] has shown that Paras can often be found in caves. However, it can also thrive in damp {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Forest Pokémon|forests}}. withIn highthe amounts[[Alola]] ofregion, humiditythe wheremushrooms conditionson areits back do not grow well.

* No other Pokémon has the same [[Egg Group]] combination as Paras and its evolution.
* Paras and Parasect share their species name with {{p|Shroomish}}, {{p|Breloom}}, {{p|Foongus}}, and {{p|Amoonguss}}. They are all known as the Mushroom Pokémon.
* Paras can be seen as a counterpart to {{p|Morelull}}. Both share the {{t|Grass}} type and, the same base stat totalstotal of 285, evolve at Level 24, both are mushroom-based Pokemon and thus can learn {{m|Spore}}, and both can be found in the wild in [[Pokémon Sun and Moon]], taking the place of the other depending on the [[time]], with Paras being found during the day and Morelull at night.
* In the 1.0 release of the English versions of {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}}, the [[Pokédex]] entry of Paras refers to it as '''BUG POKéMON'''. In the 1.1 release, this was modified to mention '''BUG/GRASS POKéMON''' instead. The Pokédex entry in {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}} says '''Bug Pokémon''' like Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire version 1.0, however.
