Appearances

Anime

Combee debuted at the end of the episode The Grass-Type is Always Greener! where Ash and Co. along with Cheryl would follow it in the next episode. Combee had an even bigger part in An Angry Combeenation! where they guarded their colony and served their leader Vespiquen.

Combee made a cameo in the Pokémon movie The Rise of Darkrai.

Trivia

  • The fact that there are more male Combee than female may be linked to the fact that real bees only have a single queen and many male drones.
  • Combee is the second Pokémon to be based on a bee, the first being Beedrill and third being Combee's evolved form, Vespiquen.
  • Similar to Magneton and Dugtrio, Combee is made of three Pokémon joined together. However, no single-bodied pre-evolution for Combee exists.
    • It is unknown what happens to a female Combee's other two heads when it becomes Vespiquen.
  • According to an interview with Ken Sugimori, Combee was originally going to have the same honeycomb shape, but instead of small bees in between, there were bee larvae with pacifiers in their mouths. The idea was scrapped because the designers thought that is was "too gross".
  • Combee is one of the five Pokémon whose evolution depends on its gender. It shares this trait with Burmy, Kirlia, Snorunt and Salandit.

Origins

Combee is based on a honeybee and the hexagonal honeycombs they make.

Etymology

Combee's English name comes from a combination of the word "honeycomb", and "bee". Its Japanese name Mitsuhoney comes from the words 蜜蜂 mitsubacchi (honey bee), and the English word honey. The name Combee also sounds similar to "combine," as Combee resembles a combination of three bees.
