Flavor Info

Pokédex Entries

Mushrooms of various sizes cover their Paracordis hosts, all of which drain so much from the bugs that they leave them completely white. The bug seems to be entirely incapable of thinking on its own; some say its entire brain has been completely eaten away.


The largest mushrooms drive the Paracordis to actively seek new hosts; the bug will batter its target into submission with its heavy claws, and the mushroom will scatter its spores while the new host is unable to resist.

Name Origin

parasite + Cordyceps, a genus of parasitic fungus that attacks insects
