Cascoon is a Bug type Pokemon introduced in Generation III. It evolves from Wurmple depending on its personality value, starting at level 7, and it evolves into Dustox starting at level 10. Take a look below for 21 fun and interesting facts about Cascoon.
1. Cascoon is a round, cocoon like Pokemon.
2. It is covered in purple silk, except for two holes where its red eyes are visible.

4. It lives in forests, where it hides underneath large leaves and inside the gaps of tree branches.
5. Additionally, it camouflages itself by attaching dead leaves to its body.
