Mothim (Japanese: ガーメイル Gamale) is a dual-type Bug/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from male Burmy starting at level 20.

Biology

Physiology

Mothim has four tan-colored wings, two large and two small, with orange circles adorning them. The wings split to three at the tip of the larger wings and splits in two at the tips of the smaller wings. Mothim has a black head, with orange eyes and two red and gray antennae above his head. Mothim's body is also black with a patch of orange on the underside and his legs are gray. He also has a small black tail that splits into two. It doesn't matter what form Burmy was in before it evolved; Mothim will always look the same. They also will have a small gray stripe running down their back.

Gender differences

Mothim is a male-only species. For the female counterpart, see Wormadam.

Special abilities

Like its female counterpart, Mothim is capable of learning a few Psychic-type moves. Mothim is also capable of using moves considered standard for butterfly- or moth-like Pokémon, such as Bug Buzz and Silver Wind.

Trivia

  • Though there are three Pokémon based on moths (Venomoth and Dustox are the other two), Mothim is the only one that is part Flying.
    • However, it may be supposed that Masquerain is a moth.
  • As of Generation IV, Mothim (along with Cherubi) is one of two Pokémon related to a Pokémon with form differences that does not have a form difference itself.
  • Even though its body is black and orange, it is classed as being yellow in the Pokédex. This is probably because its wings are a tan-yellow color. A similar situation happens with Butterfree.

Origin

Mothim is based on an adult Bagworm Moth, which only fully mature if male.

Name origin

Mothim's Japanese name is derived from 蛾 ga, moth, and male. Mothim comes from moth and him.

In other languages

  • German: Moterpel - From Motte (moth).
  • French: Papilord - From papillon (butterfly) and lord.
  • Korean: 나메일 Namale - Combination of 나방 nabang (moth) and male.
