Physiology and Behavior
Wimpod is a diminutive arthropod Pokémon with a purple main body and 4 silver plates covering its back. The first plate, which covers its head, leaves room for eyes and the purple antennae. Its eyes are yellow and seem to have plating for eyelids. It has two large spikes coming from the side of its mouth, extending backwards towards it body. The other 3 plates overlap and have a large black triangle towards their centers. It has four short legs underneath and a long pointy tail.
Despite its cowardly nature, Wimpod's curious nature gets the better of itself and has it approach people and other Pokémon. If it feels threatened, it can spit out poisonous fluids which also releases a stench that warns others nearby of the danger. Wimpod can and will eat anything, including garbage, which makes them valuable as cleaners.
