Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • While it seems to be a counterpart to Swadloon, it evolves through leveling instead of friendship.
  • Although it's similar to Kakuna and Cascoon in nature, it does not evolve from its previous form nor into it's final form quite as fast as them.
  • Whirlipede looks similar to a wheel.
  • Whirlipede's appearance is somewhat related to what an ordinary insect will go through at it's basic form which is Venipede which looks like a centipede then Whirlipede which is like Venipede coiling up to begin the stage of development in real life then evolving to Scolipede which is the mature centipede.
