How to evolve Butterfree in Pokemon Quest
Ash was the first one to evolve Butterfree, and also the first one to set it free. Caterpie evolves into Metapod in level 7. Metapod further evolves into Butterfree in level 10. The involvement in the expeditions is crucial for speedy evolution. Butterfree rigorously flaps its wings to release toxic powder in the air. The wings are water-repellent, thereby, allowing it to collect nectar from the flowers even when it's raining.
