Weedle (Biidoru in Romaji Japanese) is a basic bug-type Pokémon that evolves into Kakuna at level 7 and Beedrill at level 10. Weedle is most commonly found in forests and hiding in grass and bushes, eating leaves; when attacked, it will defend itself with the help of a two inch poison stinger on the top of its head.
