Weedle (in Japanese: ビードル “Beedle”) is a BUG & POISON dual-type Pokémon. The pointy-headed little grub evolves into Kakuna (in Japanese: コクーン “Cocoon”) at level 7, where it remains a BUG & POISON dual type.
Kakuna in turn, evolves into Beedrill (in Japanese: スピアー “Spear”) at level 10, where it is still a BUG & POISON dual type.

Beedrill can Mega Evolve into Mega Beedrill by using the Beedrillite stone.
A lot of trainers do not name a Weedle, as they expect that they will just level it up anyway, and would have to change to a more appropriate name. My favorite name for Weedle is “PowerPoinT” as in all the Microsoft Powerpoint slide shows you enjoy sitting through. These can bug you or make your head feel like it has been poisoned alright. You might use “PPT file”, “Attachment” or some variation. The name is still appropriate when players reach Weedle’s final form — Beedrill.
Readers: I have already written a “Pokemon Nicknames” post for Kakuna two years ago. The original post is linked here.
One of my favorite nicknames for a female Beedrill is “Honey Horné” named for a character from the “Wayne’s World” movie.
Here is that inspirational clip about the horny hornet:
Other names I like to use: “Charlotte” for females, as in the Charlotte Hornets NBA team. “Bonnet” is also good — as in when someone has a “bee in their bonnet”.
“HoneyDripper” for the 1980s musical collaboration between Robert Plant and Brian Setzer. who derived their name from Roosevelt Sykes , an American Blues Singer also known as “Honeydripper”. Do you remember?
I also like “Thrill Me” as a play on “drill me” I suppose. I was thinking of that song, “Thrill me, kiss, me kill me” … um … however it goes. Sing it Zooey.
Others? “BuzzFeed” to “make fun of that terrible website. “Drone Strike” for the military drones which can execute a terrorist without a trial. “MellowJacket” in order to calm this Yellow Jacket bug. Maybe “Sting” for the singer of the 1980s band The Police. “Stinger” might be bland, but combine it with “Vodka” for the mixed drink Vodka Stingers? How about “Black Decker” after the company which makes drills and power tools?

You don’t have to use my nicknames … I only hope these ideas will stimulate your own inventive nicknames!
