Dustox (Japanese: ドクケイル Dokucale) is a dual-type Bug/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Cascoon starting at level 10. It is one of Wurmple's final forms, the other being Beautifly.

Biology

Dustox is a moth-like Pokémon with two pairs of wings. It has a purple egg-shaped body with a jagged fringe on its rear. Its tattered, green wings are wide and flat, forming a disc-shape around its body. They have red markings in the form of rings and streaks, a darker green line around the edges, and contain a toxic dust. This Pokémon has two pairs of red, stubby legs and yellow, stylized compound eyes. There is a pair of fuzzy, yellow antennae on top of its head, which are smaller on the female. These antennae are used to seek food. Dustox is nocturnal and is instinctively drawn to light. Swarms are attracted by the bright light of cities where they wreak havoc by stripping the leaves off roadside trees for food. It lives in forests.

Major appearances

Jessie's Dustox

Jessie's Cascoon evolved into Dustox in Seeing is Believing. It was used in many Pokémon Contests and earned Jessie her first Ribbon in Team Shocker! after defeating Kenny's Prinplup in the Battle Stage of the Solaceon Contest.

Other

A Shiny Dustox appeared in Crossing Paths under the ownership of Austin. He and Jessie released their Dustox so they could take part in the Dustox Crossing, a time when several Dustox gather at a lake and pair up before flying over Mt. Coronet towards the Dustox Flower Field, where they start their families.

Minor appearances

A Dustox belonging to a Pokémon Coordinator appeared in A Fan with a Plan.

Dustox debuted in Distracting Dustox. Ruby accidentally grabbed one of its wings, angering it and inciting it to attack. Though the boy initially had a hard time confronting it due to his impartiality towards battling, Mumu eventually felled it with a Water Gun.

The Battle Factory rented a Dustox which was stolen by Guile Hideout in The Final Battle VII.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Dustox is one of the Pokémon used by random Team Galactic Grunts. They first appeared in The Legendary Pokémon, Captured.

Trivia

  • Dustox shares its category with Venomoth. They are both known as the Poison Moth Pokémon.
  • Dustox is the only Poison-type Pokémon that evolves from a non-Poison-type. Thus, if a poisoned Cascoon evolves into Dustox, it will keep the status condition.

Origin

Dustox is based on Actias artemis, a Japanese moon moth. Its Shiny coloration may be inspired by moths that mimic dead leaves.

Name origin

Dustox is a combination of dust (referring to how wing scales are powdery) and toxic.

Dokucale may be a combination of 毒蛾 dokuga (poisonous moth) and scale (referring to wing scales) or gale.
