Wurmple (ケムッソ) is the 14th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Bug Type, and is classified as the Worm Pokémon.

Wurmple uses the Shield Dust Ability. This ability nullifies the secondary effects of attacks that do damage to this Pokémon. A second Ability is available to Wurmple from the Dream World, called Run Away. This allows this Pokémon to always run from battle unless during a Trainer Battle. Additionally, the ability won't work when the opponent uses Mean Look or Spider Web to block escape, or when the opposing Pokémon has the Arena Trap or Shadow Tag Ability.

Wurmple can evolve into one of two Pokémon when it reaches Level 7. It can evolve into either Silcoon or Cascoon. If it evolves into Silcoon, it will evolve into a Beautifly when it reaches Level 10; if it evolves into Cascoon, it will evolve into a Dustox when it reaches Level 10.

Wurmple is in the Bug Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Wurmple One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
