Venipede (フシデ Fushide) is a Bug/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Venipede is a small armored arthropod Pokémon that resembles a centipede. Its body is reddish magenta and green. It has black markings on its neck, shoulders and antennae. It has a dome-shaped segment on its upper body, and its lower body is segmented. Venipede has four pairs of black legs and two tails. It has large squinted yellow eyes with slit black pupils, giving it an ill-tempered appearance.

Behavior

Venipede is a very aggressive Pokémon that will use its venom to paralyze its predators. A voracious predator, Venipede will consume whatever prey it can swallow whole without knowing the outcome. It is said to be a close relative of Skorupi and Sizzlipede; however, once Venipede crosses paths with a Sizzlipede, a huge fight will ensue.

Evolution

Venipede evolves into Whirlipede at level 22, and then into Scolipede at level 30.

Trivia

  • While it's similar to Weedle and Wurmple in nature, it doesn't evolve as fast as either of them, evolving at level 22 rather than level 7.

Origin

Venipede is based on a combination of a centipede, millipede, and pillbug.

Etymology

Venipede's English name comes from the words "venom" and "centipede," a many-legged arthropod, or "millipede," an animal closely related to centipedes.

Fushide comes from 不思議 (fushigi, strange), 節 (fushi, segment), and 蜈蚣 (mukade, centipede).
