Kakuna is a Bug/Poison-type Pokémon that evolves from Weedle at Lv. 7, and evolves into Beedrill at Lv. 10.


Kakuna is a yellow, cocoon Pokémon. Kakuna has a dome-shaped head and black, triangular eyes. It has two scythe-like arms in the middle of its body.

When it comes close to evolving, Kakuna's body gives off heat that makes it warm to the touch.


Kakuna remains virtually immobile and waits for evolution often hanging from tree branches by long strands of silk at attached to the trunk.


Kakuna nests in forests and misty wooded areas. Occasionally, it will also nest at the mouths of tunnels and caves.


When attacked, Kakuna can extend its poison barbs.
