Parasect is an orange insectoid Pokémon whose back has been fully consumed by the parasitic fungus. It features a tiny head and pure white eyes, as well as a segmented body that is mainly concealed by the mushroom. It contains three pairs of legs, the first of which forms huge pincers. The fungus on its back has a huge red cap with yellow patches all over it.

The insect’s nutrition have been depleted, and it is now under the power of a fully developed tochukaso. When the mushroom is removed, the Parasect will cease moving. It may flourish in dense woodlands with enough humidity for fungal growth. This Pokémon has been known to infest trees in swarms. The swarm will deplete the tree’s nutrients until it dies, at which point it will move on to a new tree. It has been known to engage in territorial conflict with Shiinotic. Prior to Generation III, Spore was the game’s hallmark maneuver.
