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 Pokémon that resembles 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 pseudopupils.

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. In the Alola region, the mushrooms on its back do not grow well. This is thought to be from a lack of moisture or nutrients.

Trivia

  • Early English promotional material for Pokémon Red and Blue listed Paras's name as Parasyte.
  • 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.
    • All six Pokémon also share a common moveSpore, and AbilityEffect Spore.
  • Paras can be seen as a counterpart to Morelull. Both share the Grass type, the same base stat total of 285, evolve at Level 24, both are mushroom-based Pokémon and thus can learn Spore, and both can be found in the wild in Pokémon Sun and Moon, taking the place of the other depending on the time, with Paras being found during the day and Morelull at night.
  • 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:
On the Origin of Species: Paras and Parasect

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. 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 may also draw inspiration from Massospora, a genus of fungi which include species that specifically infect cicadas.

Name origin

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