Spinarak (Japanese: イトマル Itomaru) is a dual-type Bug/Poison Pokémon. It evolves into Ariados starting at level 22.


Spinarak is a green, arachnoid Pokémon. It has black eyes with white pupils, a white horn on its head, red mandibles, and six yellow legs. A greenish-black stripe encircles the middle of each leg and the end of its abdomen. The greenish-black spots on its abdomen resemble a face that has been shown to change expression in the anime. Spinarak is a patient hunter that can wait motionlessly for several days for unsuspecting prey to become trapped in its thin yet strong web, which it weaves in the forest. It is even said to be able to identify what kind of prey is in its web just by their vibrations.

  • Spinarak can be seen as a parallel to Ledyba. Both of them are Bug-type Generation II Pokémon. Spinarak is exclusive to Pokémon Gold and HeartGold, while Ledyba is exclusive to Silver and SoulSilver. Spinarak are nocturnal, while Ledyba are matutinal. Additionally, their rarity is also reversed, with Spinarak being more common in FireRed, and Ledyba in LeafGreen. Both were also added to the expanded Safari Zone in Emerald, and both can only be obtained by breeding their evolved forms in Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Black, and White. Additionally, in Black 2 its evolution swarms on Route 22 while Ledyba's evolution does so in White 2.


Spinarak shares coloring and appearance with the happy face spider, an arachnid from Hawaii with a face-like marking on its abdomen.

Name Origin

Spinarak is a combination of spinneret or the verb spin and arachnid. Spinnerak is also the Afrikaans word for spider web. Itomaru may be a combination of 糸 ito (thread) and 丸 maru (circle) or a shortening of 巻き上がる makiagaru (to roll up).
