Ariados (Japanese: アリアドス Ariados) is a dual-type Bug/Poison Pokémon.

It evolves from Spinarak starting at level 22.

Biology

Physiology

Ariados is a spider-like Pokémon in appearance. It has a red body with black stripes and an unhappy face on its abdomen. Ariados has four yellow legs with purple stripes; its fifth and sixth legs seem to have been moved onto its back. Both the horn and mandibles on Ariados are white.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Ariados's feet are tipped with tiny hooked claws that enable it to scuttle on ceilings and vertical walls. It spins a single strand of a special string endlessly out of its rear. The string leads back to its nest. The string can also be spun from its mouth. It is hard to tell which end is which. This Pokémon constricts the foe with its webbing.

Until Generation V, Ariados, and its pre-evolution, Spinarak, were the only known Pokémon that could learn Spider Web.

Behavior

Rather than making a nest in one specific spot, it wanders in search of food after darkness falls. It will attach silk to its prey and set it free. Later, it tracks the silk to the prey and its friends.

Habitat

Forest

Forest Pokémon

They can be found in Kanto and Johto.

Diet

It is certain that it is a hunter. It is one of the few Pokémon that has been depicted catching other Pokémon to consume.
