Paras (Japaneseパラス Paras) is a dual-type Bug/Grass Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Parasect starting at level 24.

Biology

 
Paras removing its tochukaso

Paras is an orange, insectoid creature resembling the nymph stage of a 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 moveSpore.

The anime has shown that Paras can often be found in caves. However, it can also thrive in damp forests with high amounts of humidity where conditions are ideal for fungi. It is also very timid as shown in the anime when it runs away from a battle with a Charmeleon.

Major appearances

Paras is featured in The Problem with Paras under the ownership of Cassandra. It is extremely weak, but Cassandra needed it to evolve into a Parasect so she can use the giant mushroom to aid in her medical research. It does so towards the end of the episode.

Minor appearances

Paras made its debut in Clefairy and the Moon Stone, in which a group of Paras can be briefly seen removing the mushrooms on their backs. Seymour explained that this behavior was due to someone stringing lights in the caves of Mt. Moon, and implied that this was not good for them.

Trivia

  • Early English promotional material for Pokémon Red and Blue listed Paras's name as Parasyte. The name may have been shortened to Paras because Parasyte is the official English name of a graphic horror manga series.
  • In Generation IPoison attacks are super effective against Bug, making Paras and Parasect the only Pokémon to have ever had three 4× weaknesses.
  • No other Pokémon has the same Egg Group combination as Paras and its evolution.
  • Paras and Parasect share their species name with ShroomishBreloomFoongus, and Amoonguss. They are all known as the Mushroom Pokémon.
  • Paras can be seen as a parallel to Shroomish. Both of them are Grass-type Pokémon based on fungi. Paras is exclusive to White while Shroomish is exclusive to Black, with both Pokémon found in a Mass Outbreak in the same location in their respective versions.
  • In the 1.0 release of the English versions of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, 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 Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire says Bug Pokémon like Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire version 1.0, however.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

The fungus on Paras is identified as tochukaso, an endoparasitoid that replaces the host tissue and can affect the behavior of its insect host. The base insect appears to be a cicada nymph.

Name origin

Paras is a shortening of parasite, referring to the parasitic mushroom growing on its back.
