Vespiquen (ビークイン) is the 54th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. She is a Bug/Flying Type, and is known as the Beehive Pokémon.

Vespiquen uses the Pressure Ability. Pressure deducts a second PP off of the enemy whenever it uses a move on Vespiquen. A second Ability is available to Vespiquen from the Dream World, the Unnerve Ability. This Ability intimidates the opponent to the point in which they won't consume their held Berry.

Female Combee can evolve into Vespiquen at Level 21.

Vespiquen is in the Bug Egg Group, and her Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Vespiquen 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Vespiquen is made to resemble a queen bee, and for that reason its whole body is striped yellow and black. Its lower abdomen is made up of seven honeycomb-looking areas, which then disappear into a very small upper torso. Vespiquen has two arms that extend from its circular head area, and two wings that connect here as well. It has a red gem on its forehead, and two pincers right under its red eyes.

[edit] Gender Differences

Vespiquen is a Female Pokémon Species.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

The only way to obtain a Vespiquen in Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heart Gold and Soul Silver is to evolve a Female Combee. Wild Vespiquen appear at Route 12 in Black and White, and at Route 12 and Lostlorn Forest in Black 2 and White 2.

[edit] Spin-Off Games

Vespiquen can be found at Treeshroud Forest 10F-20F in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky. Vespiquen is exclusive to Light Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Mystery Meadow 11F-19F.

Vespiquen can be found along Chroma Highway after completing an In-Game Quest in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Vespiquen appears at the West End of Sophian Road in the Present, and in the Past, can be obtained by completing the Dark Temple Mission "A Fork in the Dark Road" with an S-Rank. It is harder to obtain here because it is also the Boss of the mission.

Vespiquen appear at Soothing Shore Treetops 2-3 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.

Vespiquen is listed as a Rare Card in the Diamond and Pearl, Stormfront, Rising Rivals and Undaunted sets.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Vespiquen has the Defenses to be a viable option in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. Her biggest problem is typing, which will cause her to lose half her HP upon entry should a Stealth Rock hazard be in play. Her Speed is rather low as well, allowing for faster Pokémon to strike first.
