Venomoth (Japanese: モルフォン Morphon) is a dual-type Bug/Poison Pokémon.

It evolves from Venonat starting at level 31.

Biology

Venomoth is an insectoid creature with a light purple body. It has bulbous, round eyes with large pupils and a small mandible. Its thorax is paler with several black, zigzagging stripes running across the horizontal length. It has six short legs and a three-point crest on its head. Its two pairs of wings are covered in dust-like, purple scales that vary in color depending on their toxic capability. Dark scales are poisonous, while lighter scales can cause paralysis. These scales are released when Venomoth flutters its wings.

Venomoth live in dense forests with much undergrowth and little light. As a nocturnal Pokémon, Venomoth comes out at night to hunt of its favorite prey. It prefers to feed on insects that gather around light, and Venomoth is attracted to bright lights itself.

Trivia

Ken Sugimori artwork of Venomoth from Pokémon Red and Blue
  • In early official art of Venomoth, it was shown having yellow spots on the back of its wings. This was removed when later official artwork was released.
  • Venomoth shares its category name with Dustox. They are both known as the Poison Moth Pokémon.

Origin

Venomoth's ability to poison its enemies and its type combination suggests that it may have been based on a moth in the Arctiidae family. Its Japanese name may mean it may also have been influenced by the Morphinae subfamily of butterflies; its wings's design seems to be heavily influenced by Morphinads.

Name origin

Venomoth is likely a combination of venom and moth.

Morphon may refer to the butterfly genus, Morpho.
