Scolipede (Japanese: ペンドラー Pendoraa) is Bug/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Scolipede is an enormous quadrupedal arthropod-based Pokémon that resembles a centipede. Its large, segmented body is mainly a deep ruby-red color with purple teardrop-shaped markings lining each segment from the back of its head to its backside. Its underside is black, and it has a plump, rounded belly. It has two long, curved purple and red striped spine-like horns on top of its head, and on its rear. It has various small purple spikes lining the segments of its upper body. Its four legs are relatively short but powerfully-built, and lined with black stripes. The tips of its feet are black. It has piercing yellow eyes with narrowed black eyelids, and black slit pupils, giving it a fierce and aggressive appearance.

Behavior

Scolipede is an extremely aggressive and dangerous predatory Pokémon. It will chase and attack its prey relentlessly, using the stinging spines on its neck to poison its victim until it is paralyzed. It will then finish off its prey with a powerful and fatal poison.

Scolipede will also grab ahold of its prey via neck claws before slamming its victim onto the ground to deliver a lethal dose of poison from its claws. It often engage fights with Centiskorch over territory, with the battle resulting in the loser becoming food for the winner.

Special Abilities

Scolipede uses its powerful toxins to severely weaken its opponents by stinging them until they are paralyzed.

Evolution

Scolipede is the evolved form of Whirlipede as of level 30. Whirlipede evolved from Venipede as of level 22.

Appearances

Anime

A Scolipede appears in BW009: The Bloom Is On Axew! where it kidnaps Iris' Axew and ends up battling Iris' Excadrill.

Trivia

  • Although centipedes have a hundred legs and walk on most of them most of the time, Scolipede is quadrupedal.
  • This Pokémon is November on the Pokémon Horoscope in Pokémon Black and White.
  • Both Scolipede and Centiskorch share a fierce rivalry with each other despite living in different areas of Galar; this trait is also seen in Venipede and Sizzlipede, the respective pre evolved forms of Scolipede and Centiskorch.

Origin

Scolipede is based on a centipede or millipede. Scolipede may have been loosely based on Arthropluera, a prehistoric relative of centipedes and millipedes that could grow to two and a half meters in length. This also ties in with Scolipede's length of 2.5 m. However, Arthropluera lived in swamps, as opposed to Scolipede and its pre-evolutions living in forests.

Etymology

Scolipede comes fromScolopendra (a genus of centipedes), skolo- (prefix in Ancient Greek meaning "pointed") and centipede or millipede.

Pendorā may come from Scolopendra and possibly Pandora (a human woman in Greek mythology whose curiosity led to her opening a box/jar that contained all the world's evils).
