Butterfree (Japaneseバタフリー Butterfree) is a dual-type Bug/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Metapod starting at level 10. It is the final form of Caterpie.

Butterfree has a Gigantamax form.

Biology

Butterfree is a Pokémon which resembles a vaguely anthropomorphic butterfly with a purple body. Unlike true insects, it only has two body segments and four light blue legs. The upper pair of legs resemble small, three-fingered hands, while the lower pair resembles long, digit-less feet. Butterfree has two black antennae, a light blue snout with two fangs underneath, and large, red compound eyes. The red compound eyes at a closer look are reveled to be myriad of tiny eyes. Its two pairs of wings are white with black venation. Two oval scales on a female Butterfree's lower wings are black, but they are white on a male.

The wings of Butterfree are coated with poisonous scales that easily fall off continuously as it flies. If inhaled, it results in several status conditions. It will defend Caterpie from bird Pokémon using this powder. This powder also repels water, enabling it to gather honey even in the rain. Butterfree can use its sensitive antenna to detect the odors of blooming flowers six miles (ten kilometers) from its nest in search of nectar, which it carries with the hairs of its legs. Sometimes, it has territorial disputes with Cutiefly over fields of flowers. It also consumes sap from trees pierced by Heracross, as seen in the anime. Butterfree is found in temperate forests and jungles, but it has also been observed flying near the ocean as part of its migratory breeding pattern.

As Gigantamax Butterfree, its size increases to gigantic length with an altered look. The wings and the patterns on them change to a light and dark green color with hints of white. The antennae change to bright green and extend to the point where the tip bends, and three red clouds surround it. The eyes change to a bright glowing red. A fur-like circle is attached to both the wings and back of Butterfree. Several green scales can be seen floating around Butterfree, which are its most effective weapons, capable of releasing paralysis, poisoning, or sleep. The scales were composed from crystallized Gigantamax energy.

The massive wings are powerful enough to lift a ten-ton truck through a simple flap. The wind it generates can scatter poisonous scales throughout the area, making it dangerous to be near it.[1]

In Pokémon Sword and Shield prior to the DLC for The Isle of Armor, Butterfree was the only known Pokémon capable of using the move Rage Powder. Gigantamax Butterfree is the only known Pokémon capable of using the G-Max Move G-Max Befuddle.

Major appearances

Ash's Butterfree

Ash had a Butterfree that he caught as a Caterpie, the first Pokémon he ever caught. It evolved from Metapod in Challenge of the Samurai. Butterfree was also the first Pokémon Ash let go, allowing it to mate with a pink Butterfree in Bye-Bye Butterfree.

Butterfree also appeared in I Choose You!, which is set in a different continuity from the main series. It evolved from Metapod during a battle against a group of Primeape.

Pink Butterfree

In Bye-Bye Butterfree, Ash's Butterfree fell in love with a pink Butterfree and fought to save it from Team Rocket. At the end of the episode, Ash released his Butterfree to mate with the pink Butterfree. The pink Butterfree reappeared in I Choose You!, which is set in a timeline different from the main series.

Other
 
An Orange Archipelago Butterfree in the anime

In Bye-Bye Butterfree, multiple wild Butterfree, all under the ownership of Trainers who released them, engaged in a mating ceremony. Ash's Butterfree became one of these Butterfree.

In A Friend in DeedRitchie's Butterfree, nicknamed Happy, was used to help Ritchie get out of Team Rocket's runaway truck safely. In Friend and Foe Alike and Friends to the End, it was used during Ritchie's battles in the Indigo Plateau Conference.

In Poké Ball Peril, an Orange Archipelago variant of Butterfree living on Valencia Island appeared. It had not eaten for days despite Professor Ivy's effort to make different kinds of food for it. It took a liking to Brock's food, however, and was one of the reasons he stayed behind. It reappeared in a flashback in A Tent Situation.

In Caterpie's Big DilemmaZander has a giant Butterfree. After Team Rocket kidnapped Dr. Gordon and flew away on Jessie's Dustox, it evolved from a Metapod to chase Team Rocket. Butterfree shrunk back to its normal size at the end of the episode.

In Weekend WarriorJeremy's Butterfree was used in the Appeals Round of the Silver Town Pokémon Contest.

In The Unbeatable Lightness of SeeingDrew used a Butterfree during his two-on-two Contest Battle against May. Butterfree battled alongside Roselia against Combusken and Beautifly and managed to win.

In Butterfree and Me!, multiple Butterfree evolved from Metapod on Wayfarer Island. One Butterfree had been befriended by Ash as a Caterpie, and Ash spent much of the episode helping it eventually evolve into its final form.

In I Choose You!, multiple Butterfree engaged in a mating ceremony that Ash's Butterfree took a part of, much like the events of Bye-Bye Butterfree.

Minor appearances

Butterfree debuted in a fantasy of Ash's Caterpie's in Ash Catches a Pokémon.

Trivia

  • Butterfree was the first Pokémon shown in the anime with an alternate color, pink in its case. This has only been seen in a single female, and unlike a Shiny Butterfree, which has green eyes and pink wings, limbs, and snout, this Butterfree only differed in its pink body and wings.
  • Butterfree has been trained by four important Trainers in the animeAshRitchieSolidad, and Drew.
  • Butterfree shares its category with Beautifly. They are both known as the Butterfly Pokémon.
  • Butterfree can be seen as a parallel to Beedrill. Both of their unevolved stages evolve at level 7 and again at level 10. They both go through metamorphosis-like evolution and have the same base stat total of 395. Also, while Beedrill is exclusive to Black and Black 2, Butterfree is exclusive to White and White 2. Also, both have an alternate form only available in-battle (Gigantamax Butterfree and Mega Beedrill, respectively).

Origin

Butterfree seems to be based on the black-veined white butterfly.

Gigantamax Butterfree may be inspired by the kaiju Mothra.

Name origin

Butterfree may be a combination of butterfly and free (referring to its ability to fly after being grounded for two evolutionary stages). It may also be derived from the Gaelic butterflee.

Its Japanese name may also involve パタパタ patapata (the sound of wings flapping) and 振る furu (to flap).
