Trivia

  • Parasect's Pokédex entry for Pokémon Stadium connects the Pokémon world with the real world, noting that its spores are sometimes used as medicine in China.
  • 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.
  • In Generation I, Poison-type attacks are super effective against Bug-type Pokémon, making Parasect and Paras the only Pokémon to have ever had three 4× weaknesses.
  • No other Pokémon has the same Egg Group combination as Parasect and its pre-evolution.
  • Paras and Parasect share their species name with Shroomish, Breloom, Foongus and Amoonguss. They are all known as the Mushroom Pokémon.

Origin

The fungus on Parasect is identified as tochukaso, an endoparasitoid that replaces the host tissue and can affect the behavior of its insect host. The base insect is a deformed version of what is probably a cicada nymph, the parasitic fungi having caused a form of neoteny.
