Trivia

  • Caterpie was both the first Pokémon to be captured and the first Pokémon to evolve in the anime.
  • Caterpie shares its category name with Wurmple. They are both known as the Worm Pokémon.
  • Until the release of Pokémon Platinum, when it became able to learn Bug Bite, Caterpie was unable to do anything to a Ghost type outside ofstruggling except lower its Speed. It shares this trait with its evolution, Metapod. This is also true for Weedle, and its evolution, Kakuna, againstSteel types before Pokémon Platinum was released.
    • Due to this, it was impossible to complete a Generation I game using only Caterpie or Metapod, since Struggle couldn't hit Ghost types at the time.
  • In the anime and in Pokémon Adventures, Caterpie holds the record as the Pokémon who takes the least time to evolve twice, taking only one episode in the anime and one chapter in Pokémon Adventures.
  • In Ash Catches a Pokemon, when Caterpie evolves into Metapod, the process was similar to a real caterpillar going into pupation. Laterepisodes show Caterpie evolving like the rest of the Pokémon do.
