Original Japanese name: Parasu (Paras)

Type: Bug/Grass

Species: Mushroom

Height: 1"

Weight: 11.9lbs

Evolution: Evolves into Parasect

Paras' body is doused with mushroom spores when it is born. As its body grows, oriental mushrooms called tochukaso start sprouting from its back. The parasitic mushrooms grow large by drawing nutrients from the Bug pokemon host and ordering it to extract juice from tree roots underground. The mushrooms absorb most of the nutrition and grow along with Paras. They are highly valued as a medicine for extending life.
