Some Pokemon are mostly parasites, but this one IS a parasite, however, I'm curious about what type of parasite is it. Or is it just created by the original designer?

It may also draw inspiration from Myxozoa, a class of microscopic Cnidarian parasites, particularly the Myxobolus cerebralis that are known to cause the infectious "whirling disease" in various fish species. The disease causes the fish to develop bone and neurological abnormalities that cause them to swim in a corkscrew-like "whirling" motion.


Wow, that explains it, pretty impressive though, won't argue about that.
What's so impressive about copy-pasting from Bulbapedia?
