Pineco (Japanese: クヌギダマ Kunugidama) is a Bug-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Forretress starting at level 31.

Biology

Physiology

Pineco is a blue pinecone-like Pokémon with red eyes and no visible limbs. It seem to have a single horn on top of its head which is supposedly its stem.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Pineco has the ability to explode, as evidenced by its ability to learn Selfdestruct and Explosion.

Behavior

Pineco likes to make its shell thicker by adding layers of tree bark. To do so, it spits out a fluid, which hardens when it touches air, to glue the tree bark to its body. The additional weight does not bother it.

Pineco patiently hangs from a tree branch, in wait for flying insect prey to come near. It does not move much on its own, but if Pineco is disturbed when eating by someone shaking the tree, it drops down to the ground and explodes with no warning.

Habitat

Forest

Forest Pokémon
