Masquerain (Japanese: アメモース Amemoth) is a dual-type Bug/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Surskit starting at level 22.

Biology

Masquerain is a light-blue Pokémon with two pairs of rhombus-shaped wings. These wings allow it to fly in any direction, but it cannot fly if its wings are wet. Its head is shaped like an elongated teardrop with a pink face and round, black eyes with white pupils. It has a pair of large, pink and white antennae resembling a pair of angry eyes. These eyespots are used to intimidate its enemies. Rainy weather causes its antennae to become heavy and the eye patterns to appear droopy. It will shelter itself under trees or the eaves of houses to protect its wings and antennae from the rain. It lives on water's edge.

Minor appearances

Masquerain made a small appearance in The Rise of Darkrai as one of the Pokémon Darkrai hit with a Dark Void attack as the other Trainers were attacking him.

Generation III
Ruby Masquerain intimidates enemies with the eyelike patterns on its antennas. This Pokémon flaps its four wings to freely fly in any direction - even sideways and backwards - as if it were a helicopter.
Sapphire Masquerain's antennas have eyelike patterns that usually give it an angry look. If the "eyes" are droopy and appear sad, it is said to be a sign that a heavy rainfall is on its way.
Emerald It intimidates foes with the large eyelike patterns on its antennae. Because it can't fly if its wings get wet, it shelters itself from rain under large trees and eaves.
FireRed The antennae have distinctive patterns that look like eyes. When it rains, they grow heavy, making flight impossible.
