Ariados banner


This Pokémon's feet are tipped with tiny hooked claws that enable it to scuttle on ceilings and vertical walls.

Ariados constricts its foe with thin and strong silk webbing. For prey, it attaches silk to it and sets it free. Later, it tracks the silk to the prey and its friends.

It spins string not only from its rear but also from its mouth. It is hard to tell which end is which. A single strand of a special string is endlessly spun out of its rear. The string leads back to its nest.
