Paras is an orange insectoid Pokémon that looks like a cicada nymph. It has three pairs of legs and an ovoid body that is segmented. The front legs are the biggest and have sharp claws at the tips. It has five spots on its brow and three teeth on each side of its mouth. It has huge pseudopupils and round eyes.

Tochukaso, which are red and yellow mushrooms, sprout on this Pokémon’s back. The mushrooms may be removed at any moment and grow from spores poured on this Pokémon’s back by the mushroom on its mother’s back after birth. Tochukaso are parasitic in nature, taking nourishment from the host Paras’s body and exercising some control over the Pokémon’s activities. For example, Paras draws nutrients from tree roots in response to mushroom orders. The mushrooms are extremely popular among collectors and have medical purposes, which mainly include increased longevity. Prior to Generation III, Spore was the game’s hallmark maneuver.

According to the anime, Paras are often found in caverns. It may, however, survive in moist woodlands. The mushrooms on its back do not grow well in the Alola area. This is believed to be due to a lack of moisture or nutrition.
