Beedrill (Japanese: スピアー Spear) is a dual-type Bug/Poison Pokémon.
Beedrill mostly resembles a bipedal wasp; however, it only has four legs instead of six and lacks pigment pits. Beedrill's head is round with a slightly pointed mouth, large, red eyes, and antennae in the shape of the number seven. Its forelegs are tipped with long, conical stingers. It stands on its other two legs, which are long, segmented, and insectoid in shape. Beedrill has two pairs of rounded, veined wings, and another stinger on its striped abdomen.
Beedrill is highly territorial and normally lives in colonies. As seen in the anime, Beedrill seems to be especially concerned with the welfare of Weedle and Kakuna, and it will respond aggressively to those that disturb them. Disturbing a swarm of Beedrill will cause the whole colony to attack. It flies at high speed and attacks using the large venomous stingers on its forelegs and abdomen. The two stingers on its forelimbs allow it to use its former signature move, Twineedle. It will take the victims of its attacks back to its nest for food. Beedrill nests in forests and misty wooded areas.
- Beedrill's English name was originally going to be spelled Beedril.
- Beedrill's effort value yield of 2 Attack and 1 Special Defense is unique.
- Beedrill can be seen as a parallel to Butterfree. Both of their unevolved stages evolve into their respective first evolutionary stages at level 7, which then evolve into their respective final forms at level 10. They both also go through metamorphosis-like evolution and share a base stat total of 395. Also, while Beedrill is a version exclusive of Black and Black 2, Butterfree is exclusive to White and White 2.
- In Pokémon Conquest, Beedrill is the only Pokémon that is featured without its evolutionary relatives.
- Prior to Pokémon Black and White, it was the only known Pokémon to learn Twineedle by level up.
Its design appears to simply be a stylized bee or wasp. However, it has a much closer resemblance to an Asian giant hornet. Its Shiny form may be based on the Agapostemon, as both are green in color.
Beedrill is a combination of bee and drill (indicating its needle-like arms).
Spear refers to its stingers. In addition, the reverse of スピアー is アピス Apis (the genus for the honey bee).
