Weezing                                              Scientific Name: Pestillus Venenum polynfuitii

When Koffing was still in the process of development, a new concept of the possibility of growth was explored. It was learned through study that a Koffing, when strong enough and holding enough toxins, could develop into a larger form with three masses, instead of one. They tested to see if this theory was correct, and it proved a success! After this breakthrough, an intense study followed, where it was learned that the gases that were in the Koffing's body, through the process of developing into the new Weezing, were changed to liquid chemicals, whereas through the complex system of Weezing's body, the liquids were changed to their purest form and the impurities escaped through the body in a gas. Due to these characteristics, Weezing was seen as a good product for laboratories, as elements could be extracted from the Weezing after it had eaten it's full of waste. As such, Weezing and Koffing made for a large shipment to many scientists and laboratories.

Koffing and Weezing were developed in Cinnabar Lab sometime around 1987. After the incident of Cinnabar Lab, they continued to stay there for years to come, due to the environment that it was, being suitable for them. As they were shipped out to many regions, they are found just about worldwide, usually preferring to live in urban areas, but if a fire has largely consumed something, they will go to that area to feed off of the gases and sulfur emitted. Weezing is usually seen in its regular form, but on Cinnabar Island, some triplets can be found occasionally, as some scientists were apparently still working on the Weezing Project years after its finish. It has been learned that while the triplets are very rare, they only occur in highly experienced females. When tested, these females proved to be twice as strong as the regular male, but much less likely to explode. These females also live longer than the regular Weezing, as these females have an estimated lifespan of seventy-five years, while the regular Weezing and Koffing have an estimated lifespan of fifty years. Weezing and Koffing reproduce in the same way. While one can estimate if a Koffing is liable to explode, this cannot be done with a Weezing; the only other way for a Weezing to explode other than self-detonation, is for the chemicals inside of its body to reach a temperature of 173 degrees F. or more.
An explanation in detail of the origins and life of a Weezing. Thanks to :iconoh-ninja-please: for the scientific name.

Koffing:Pestillus Venenum infuitii
(literally poison container)
Weezing:Pestillus Venenum polynfuitii
(literally many poison containers)
