I found this video on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCOQ0VU24xw ) on the Cordyceps Fungus, which is a parasyte that infects insects. Anyway, the Cordyceps that infects bullet ants makes them look like Paras/Parasect. I supposed this was important, so I am mentioning it in this discussion page, but before I make the change in the article, I was hoping someone green lights this idea.
I thought Paras was some kind of terrestrial crustacean. Is that a possibility? Random Chaos 18:04, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
If I'm correct, Paras is the first Pokémon in National Pokédex order to have two double weaknesses (Fire and Flying). Should this be added to the trivia? --Locrian 06:25, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
- No. That is getting too specific. If you're not really sure whether trivia is notable or not, then it probably isn't. --SnorlaxMonster 06:27, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Gen III backsprites
Something seems odd about the sprites shown for Gen III. I have a non-shiny Paras in FireRed, and it's backsprite is equivalent to what is shown for a shiny Paras. I also notice the FR/LG shiny Paras has gold mushrooms, which none of these backsprites have. Are there seperate backsprites for the remake games that are missing from the article? --GARY-DOS (talk) 01:18, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
- I don't think so. They only sometimes do, and plenty of other Pokemon can also have 5x (or greater) weaknesses from a combination of type-changing shenanigans, Ability-swapping shenanigans, and Trick-or-Treat/Forest's Curse. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 15:24, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
