Wurmple is a caterpillar-like bug Pokémon introduced in the Generation III video games Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire. The Pokémon had seen a small fandom online until it appeared in New Pokémon Snap, when a picture of it lying on its back inspired memes about its ostensibly sad vibe.


Wurmple debuted in the Generation III Pokémon games, Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, which released on November, 21st, 2002.[1] It can evolve into Cascoon or Silcoon and then either Dustox or Beautifly, depending on its nature. The Pokémon was also available in-game in Generations IV and VI.


Online, Wurmple inspired some memes and fan art through the 2000s and 2010s, though it was not a particularly popular Pokémon. Memes that did feature Wurmple generally poked fun at how it is generally weak. For example, a March 24th, 2020 picture submitted to /r/okbuddyretard[2] by user PoisonousPanacea showed a person about to step on a Wurmple, gaining over 2,700 points (shown below, left). A Reddit post by Fudgeshroom1357 in /r/ShitpostCrusaders[3] showing a Shiny Wurmple gained over 16,000 points (shown below, right).
