Original Japanese name: Toranseru (Trancel)
Evolution: Evolves from Caterpie; evolves into Butterfree
The shell covering Metapod's body is as hard as an iron slab. But even though it is encased in a sturdy shell, the body inside is weak and tender as it prepares to evolve. At this stage, Metapod can only harden its shell to protect its soft innards, so it remains motionless to avoid attack. However, it can't withstand harsh attacks and a large impact may cause it to pop out of its shell. It quietly endures hardships while it awaits evolution.
