Pineco (Japaneseクヌギダマ Kunugidama) is a Bug-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Forretress starting at level 31.

Biology

Pineco is a blue-green, pinecone-like Pokémon with red eyes and no visible limbs. It has a single spike on top of its head, which is supposedly its stem. It makes its shell thicker by gluing tree bark to its body. The glue is made of fluid that Pineco spits out, which hardens when it is exposed to air. Unbothered by the added weight of its shell, it patiently hangs from a tree branch to wait for flying insect prey. Typically immobile, it will drop to the ground and explode if someone shakes its tree while it is eating.

Trivia

Origin

Pineco is based on a bagworm living in a pine cone. Its metallic appearance and ability to explode also links to a hand grenade. In addition to its possible relation to weaponry, its ability to learn Spikes may be a reference to caltrops.

Name origin

Pineco is a shortening of pine cone, reflecting its pine cone-like appearance.

Kunugidama may be a combination of クヌギ kunugi (sawtooth oak) and 玉 tama (ball).
