How Metapod Works

by Steve Napierski to Comics

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could just strap Metapod to the back of stronger Pokémon and use that one in battle instead? That way you won’t have to keep switching it in and out and it can evolve to Butterfree sooner.

    It evolves into Metapod at level 7. It evolves into Butterfree at level 10. How much sooner did you have in mind? >_<

      I think they meant sooner as in: I don’t want to waste my time switching it to another pokemon to make it evolves

    Poke geek here.
    If you evolved Metapod from a Caterpie it would still have it’s old move like tackle.

      That’s the point… Metapod, in the game, CAN learn tackle, but the question is HOW does it accomplish this when wild Metapod can just harden.

      Just because you are a poke geek and just because this is a comic about pokemon (and pokemon comics frequently don’t check there facts) doesn’t mean you have to instantly correct it.

    Manly Guys Doing Manly Things has something similar to this, but using a Magikarp instead. Too bad it got brain damage.

      That statement is redundant as all Magikrap is born with brain damage
