#47: Parasect - Bug Grass Type

[PokeDex Entry]



The Mushroom Pokémon

  • Red: A host-parasite pair in which the parasite mushroom has taken over the host bug. Prefers damp places.

    Yellow: The bug host is drained of energy by the mushrooms on its back. They appear to do all the thinking.

    Gold: It stays mostly in dark, damp places, the preference not of the bug, but of the big mush­ rooms on its back.

    Prof. Lotus' Notes: Parasect is a portmanteau of Parasite and Insect. The Cordyceps like fungus that it contracted as a Paras has fully taken over it's body, as can be seen by it's lifeless eyes. This host creature is no longer be seen as alive, and is merely a shell / puppet controlled by the virus. A similar concept can be seen in the video game the 'Last of Us'.
