Trivia

  • Metapod shares its category name with Kakuna, Silcoon, and Cascoon. They are all known as the Cocoon Pokémon.
    • They also share the same base stat total, learnset, Ability, and EV yield.
      • This ties them as the evolved Pokémon with the lowest base stat total.
  • Metapod is the first Pokémon to evolve in a movie, and part of the first evolution cycle in an episode.
  • Until the release of Pokémon Platinum, when its pre-evolution became able to learn Bug Bite, Metapod was unable to damage Ghost-typePokémon except by using Struggle. It shared this trait with Caterpie.
    • Due to this, it was impossible to complete a Generation I game using only Caterpie or Metapod since Struggle could not hit Ghost types at the time.
  • Metapod is usually depicted with white sclera, such as in the games, trading cards, and promotional illustrations, but it has yellow sclera in the anime.
  • In the anime episode Challenge of the Samurai, the process of Metapod's evolution was similar to a real life butterfly emerging from its cocoon. In later episodes, however, Metapod is shown to evolve like any other Pokémon

Origin

Metapos is based on butterfly chrysalises
