Parasect is a Bug/Grass Pokemon from the first generation.
Parasect remains virtually unchanged after evolution from Paras, with the main difference appearing with its head: lower brain function requires a smaller brain, while its mouth and pupils both disappear. While the host remains largely the same, the parasitic fungus grows to be larger than the host. The pair of mushrooms grow together to form one cap, which is always red with yellow spots. Roll 1d6+10 inches for random height and 1d12+60 pounds for random weight. The tochukaso contributes 24 inches to the height of Parasect.
Controls all brain function of the host body, using it to inhabit large trees and drain the energy from them to sustain itself. Prefers to avoid sunlight, allowing its host body to rest for an average of six hours each day during the hottest time of the day, although it prefers a warm environment. Will often venture outside during rain to assist its natural functions.
Generally live in groups of Parasect with some Paras, finding large trees to bore into. The larger the colony, the more often a new home must be found after the previous one is completely drained of life. Avoid Parastrike at all costs, not because of an aversion, but because of the aversion of the Parastrike to the tochukaso. Sometimes known to follow Pinsir and use the burrows under trees to facilitate a new home; this in turn causes the Pinsir to find a new tree to burrow under, allowing the colony to continue its cycle.
