Parasect (Japaneseパラセクト Parasect) is a dual-type Bug/Grass Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Paras starting at level 24.

Biology

Parasect is an orange, insectoid Pokémon that has been completely overtaken by the parasitic mushroom on its back. It has a small head with pure white eyes and a segmented body that is mostly hidden by the mushroom. It has three pairs of legs with the foremost pair forming large pincers. The fungus growing on its back has a large red cap with yellow spots throughout.

The insect has been drained of nutrients and is now under the control of the fully-grown tochukaso. Removing the mushroom will cause Parasect to stop moving. It can thrive in dark forests with a suitable amount of humidity for growing fungi. Swarms of this Pokémon have been known to infest trees. The swarm will drain the tree of nutrients until it dies and will then move on to a new tree. It has been known to fight with Shiinotic over territory. Its former signature move is Spore.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:
On the Origin of Species: Paras and Parasect

Parasect resembles a cicada nymph. It may also be based on a hermit crab with a mushroom for a shell. In concept, it could be inspired by ants that are infected with mushroom spores that take control of the host ant's brain and sprout from its head or back. It is also similar to a crab.

The fungus on Parasect is identified as tochukasoTochukaso is the Japanese name of the real-world fungus Ophiocordyceps sinensis, an endoparasitoid that replaces the host tissue and can affect its behavior. It may also draw inspiration from Massospora, a genus of fungi which include species that specifically infect cicadas.

Name origin

Parasect may be a combination of parasite and insect.
