Goh's Venomoth (Japanese: ゴウのモルフォン Go's Morphon) is the third Pokémon that Goh caught in the Kanto region, and his fourth overall.


Venomoth and Butterfree

In Working My Way Back to Mew!, Goh found Venomoth at Vermilion Forest, and after a brief chase, threw a Poké Ball at it, succesfully catching it.

In Panic in the Park!, Venomoth joined a group made up of Goh's other Bug-type Pokémon, which came into conflict with another faction led by Goh's Darmanitan, which was made up of Normal and Poison-type Pokémon, after the food around Cerise Park had been stolen. Venomoth and Butterfree combined their Stun Spore attacks, which were blocked by Grimer's Poison Gas. As the battle escalated, Scyther took control of the Bug-type group, but the infighting ended when Golurk lost control of itself, causing Cerise Park to become flooded. Venomoth joined the rest of the Pokémon in saving Goh's three Cascoon, allowing them to evolve into Dustox and clear the storm with Sunny Day.

In There's a New Kid in Town!, Goh enlisted the help of Venomoth and Butterfree by having them use Stun Spore to locate the invisible crying Sobble, as its crying was affecting all the Pokémon in the proximity, and its paralysis caused Sobble to reappear, but it kept crying until Dragonite hugged the Water Lizard Pokémon to comfort it, which caused Sobble to fall asleep and stop crying.

In This Could be the Start of Something Big!, Venomoth attended a surprise party hosted by the Lab members commemorating Goh and Ash's departure. After that, Venomoth posed for a group photo with Goh, Ash, and the others.

Personality and characteristics

Venomoth is shown as being useful for restraining its targets with its Stun Spore attack, seen when Venomoth helped locate the camouflaged Sobble when its crying was affecting everyone around it.

Venomoth is usually seen alongside Butterfree, and they often combined their Stun Spore attacks together to cover a wider area whenever Goh deems it necessary. They also perform this combo on their own accord, seen when Venomoth and Butterfree used it during their confrontation with the Normal and Poison-type Pokémon faction in Panic in the Park!.
