Description: Designed after the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail caterpillar, Caterpie is a bulbous, green and yellow caterpillar with large black eyes and large, red antennae. Its eyes are centered in yellow rings that, combined with the scent released from its antennae, scare off predators. These defense mechanisms, combined with camoflauge, are often not enough to protect this little Bug from being dinner for various Flying type Pokémon. Caterpie grow very quickly, shedding their skin multiple times before evolving into Metapod. Because ti grows fast and is easy to catch, Caterpie is often a child's first Pokémon.
