Evolves at: Level 10
 
Kakuna is the second stage of the evolution phase, which starts with Weedle. It then evolves into the final stage of its life as a Beedrill. Kakuna is notorious amongst Pokemon fans as being hard to beat at low level due to its' skill set. This is because Kakuna can only use the move 'Harden' at low level which increases its survivability. In the Pokemon RPG's, Kakuna is generally very easy to obtain due to its' limited skill set, therefore provides to be a useful party member early on in the games.
