Trivia

  • Early English promotional material for Pokémon Red and Blue listed Paras's name as Parasyte. The name may have been shortened to Parasbecause Parasyte is the official English name of a graphic horror manga series.
  • In Generation I, Poison attacks are super effective against Bug, making Paras and Parasect the only Pokémon to have ever had three 4× weaknesses.
  • Paras and Parasect are the only Pokémon in the game to take more than 4 times as much damage from any one type of attack under normal battle conditions: a Paras or Parasect with the Ability Dry Skin takes 5× damage from Fire-type attacks.
  • No other Pokémon has the same Egg Group combination as Paras and its evolution.
  • Paras and Parasect share their species name with Shroomish, Breloom, Foongus, and Amoonguss. They are all known as the Mushroom Pokémon.
  • Paras can be seen as a parallel to Shroomish. Both of them are Grass-type Pokémon based on fungi. Paras is exclusive to White while Shroomish is exclusive to Black, with both Pokémon found in a Mass Outbreak in the same location in their respective versions.
  • In the 1.0 release of the English versions of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, the Pokédex entry of Paras refers to it as BUG POKéMON. In the 1.1 release, this was modified to mention BUG/GRASS POKéMON instead. The Pokédex entry in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire saysBug Pokémon like Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire version 1.0, however.

Origin

The fungus on Paras is identified as tochukaso, an endoparasitoid that replaces the host tissue and can affect the behavior of its insect host. The base insect appears to be a cicada nymph.
