Description: Encased in an nearly impenetrable, green shell, Metapod is a chrysalis evolved from Caterpie. Although its shell protects it from most attacks, Metapod also struggles to move or attack back. All most Metapod can do is harden their shell. Unfortunately, their shell isn't enough to protect them from Pikipek, who like to feast on them.

Core Games

Metapod in the core games

  • Sword Pokédex: It is waiting for the moment to evolve. At this stage, it can only harden, so it remains motionless to avoid attack.
  • Shield Pokédex: Even though it is encased in a sturdy shell, the body inside is tender. It can't withstand a harsh attack.
