Well, earlier today I was training my Larvesta and it got me to thinkink, what is my favorite moth Pokemon? So there's Mothim, Venemoth, Dustox, and Volcarona. Mine is between Mothim and Vocarona though probably Volcarona. What's yours?

Wrong section. Please read the rules and announcement before posting a thread next time. This belongs in Pokemon General, because it's about the Pokemon, and not the games specifically. So I'll just throw this there.

I would say it would either be... Volcarona or Venemoth. I never was a big fan of Dustox... Mothim's cute though. :)

Volcarona without a doubt. It's so awesome, design-wise and description-wise.
"When volcanic ash darkened the atmosphere, it is said that Volcarona's fire provided a replacement for the sun."
"A sea of fire engulfs the surroundings of their battles, since they use their six wings to scatter their ember scales."

Which begs the question of WTF Ho-Oh was doing at the time… D:
(Stupid Nintendo making earlier Pokémon sound stupid and releasing "super-cool" Pokémon that look like… :X!!!)

Anyways, my vote goes to Venomoth, I never really used it, but if Koga ever gave me trouble, Venomoth was responsible ¬¬
(And Venonat's design is AWESOME! :D)

Venemoth for being so uberly awesome.

April 11th, 2011, 6:15 PM
Venomoth will always be my favorite, but I'm just a 1st Gen fanboy at heart.

April 11th, 2011, 9:41 PM
Volcarona is really cool so I feel very compelled to say it. I think the others (aside from Venomoth) are too complicated to get and... well, Venomoth seems so plain compared to Volc. So I'm gonna go with the 5th gen moth. :)

April 11th, 2011, 10:22 PM
What the- OP, YOU FORGOT MASQUERAIN! >:[ (and yes, it is at least partially, if not fully, based on a moth - its Japanese name is Amemoth). Gosh.

Anyway, despite Masquerain's rude omission T_T, I voted for:

Ulgamoth. Fire/Bug is such an awesome typing combination, especially when moths are naturally prone to flames. It's also evocative of the great moth Mothra, and has two amazing names (though I feel Ulgamoth supersedes Volcarona...) The wings are slightly weird, but they're OK, especially since they could be said to represent tiger lilies... Furthermore, all of its Pokedex entries are freaking awesome.

Honorable mentions:

Venomoth. A classic, and supposedly the true evolution of Metapod. The shiny form is just beautiful, and the overall design is a terrific interpretation of the first Pokemon moth. And it's skilled with littering the foe with various potent powders, as well.

Mothim. A soothing (somewhat creamy/coffee-ish) color scheme, and is a nice take on a somewhat funky though streamlined moth design.

Dustox...as much as I love Generation 3 Pokemon, this one was just...weirdly designed. :x The design is tolerable, though, and the eyes are a bit cool. The shiny variant's coloration isn't half-bad, even.

My favorite Moth Pokemon is Mothim without a doubt. I mean that thing is absolutely adorable. ;___;

Also, why isn't Masquerain here? Isn't that also a moth? :(

..lol the previous poster beat me to it.

Yeeeeeeah Volcarona. Little else to say. Reminds me, I need to get back to breeding that Larvesta. I had a 30 Speed and a 29 Sp. Atk - just need to get them to make babbies.

April 12th, 2011, 1:56 AM
Why just now I can't decide between Volcarona or Venomoth? Volcarona is the beast of bug pokemon, while Venomoth have unspeakable charm.

April 12th, 2011, 2:53 AM
I used to have a soft spot for Mothim, but my favorite moth Pokemon now is Volcarona because it has Fire STAB to hit the other moths hard with.

April 12th, 2011, 2:58 AM
Volcarona wins this easily by having a unique typing an a favorable design. I also like Mothim because of it being very realistic.

April 12th, 2011, 5:30 AM
Dustox for me. I always tend to include one whenever I play R/S/E. Some sort of attraction towards it I guess... :p

April 12th, 2011, 8:44 AM
Volcarona's really cool. It's going on my team as soon as I find it. And I like Mothim's design.

April 12th, 2011, 8:57 AM
Mine's definitely Venomoth. A Psychic-learning Bug just seemed so cool to me. And Dustox is just kinda boring imo. Plus it always annoyed me with status problems and the such. :v

April 12th, 2011, 10:29 AM
I don't like too many 4th gen Pokemon but my favorite moth is actually Mothim. It has some decent stats compared to most other bug types and I like its diverse move pool.

April 12th, 2011, 10:52 AM

All of the Hoenn Pokémon are amazing.
And it was the first legit shiny I ever saw..but I didn't catch. :(

April 12th, 2011, 11:58 AM
Masquerain is one of my favorite pokemon overall so it gets my vote for favorite moth. I dunno, there's just something I like about how it's a moth, but not just a moth. It's weird. I like that.

mondays suck

Always loved Venomoth, even with its irrationally high evolution level. Out of the other moths I have only used the two third-generation ones, Masquerain is pretty cool but not quite better than Venomoth, Dustox just plain ol' sucks.

April 12th, 2011, 2:32 PM
"Ohey guyz,is this the thread for me to fly in and declare how utterly and indisputably awesome I am? For one thing, I evolve from the cutest, most furry bug pokeyman ever. I also have psychic abilities and I can incapacitate my foes simply by flapping my wings at high velocity. I'm simply an invaluable ally for anyone monotyping the Kanto region with bugs or poisons. All in all, I'm just plain awesome."

April 12th, 2011, 3:26 PM
Venomoth!!! I love how it always looks high.

April 13th, 2011, 12:07 AM
Masquerian if it counts. It's a shame it didn't keep Surskit's awesome typing.

In the list though Volcaryona takes the cake easily. It is wickedly strong, has an amazing movepool and can tear through teams like no other. (Butterfly dance says hi!)

I don't even classify Mothim as a Pokemon. Go away Mothim, you are a moth, not a Pokemon.

April 13th, 2011, 9:04 PM
Volcarona, although cool, is really powerful and I like it for its role rather than for what it is. Solely on being a moth, I've always liked dustox for some reason. I always thought it looked a bit like a purple missile with cool wings pinned to its back and an awesome facial expression.

April 13th, 2011, 9:54 PM
venemoth!!!!!! my favourite of all bug pokemon not just moths

April 15th, 2011, 2:12 PM
Masquerian if it counts is my top as hes is nice to look at compared to many bugs.
then mothim because his design isnt too freaky as far as bugs go
then venemoth, because hes awesome, although the colouring is bland.
then dustox
and controversially, lastly volcarona. nice colours, but is fat and ugly and lacks any sort of awesomeness IMO.

April 15th, 2011, 8:47 PM
I like Mothim. Been on my side during the Pearl adventure.

April 15th, 2011, 9:11 PM
for me it would be Volcarona.

April 15th, 2011, 9:29 PM
Chose Dustox partially due to Jessie, haha. Not into moth Pokemon anyway...XD

April 15th, 2011, 9:33 PM
I LOVE Volcarona!

I wish I had 1 to hug...

April 15th, 2011, 9:47 PM
Volcarona's designs are very interesting, but I just don't think it looks like a moth. It reminds me more of a cocoon than the adult form.

My favorite Moth Pokemon would have to be Venemoth. I guess I have a soft side for Generation I Pokemons, but I just prefer it over the other three.

I've always loved Mothim, it's adorable ;D

April 20th, 2011, 6:42 AM
Volcarona because of its colour-scheme, power, design ...everything! :D There was nothing more satisfying than raising it from a helpless Larvesta :3

Venomoth comes in a close second though, because its the original and it gave me such a hard time in the Colour Gen. D:

April 20th, 2011, 6:46 AM
Volcarona now, Venomoth before 5th gen. Jesus, that fire bug is just a flying power, awesome moves and of course it's the type i love the most - fire.

April 20th, 2011, 10:28 AM
I really hate Volcarona. It's design...
And that it's part Fire type.

It should have been a firefly.


April 25th, 2011, 3:26 AM
Venomoth 100%. Its the classic and still looks the best i suppose

April 25th, 2011, 11:45 AM
I say Venomoth hands down. Out of all the moth Pokemon it's the one that best resembles and actual moth.

Volcarona because it is Fire/bug, an awesome type that I am sure everyone wanted to see at come point in Pokemon. It looks so cool and royal too like a lot of Unova Poekmon and I think it has good colouring. Plus it is a huge powerhouse ^.^

April 25th, 2011, 5:16 PM
I'd have to say Venomoth, I just like the simple design of it.

April 25th, 2011, 5:52 PM
personally, i love volcarona. epic typing and an amazing special attack and speed. and it's shiny looks pwnage :).

April 27th, 2011, 7:43 AM

Purely because it gives me the chance to proclaim my love for Venomoth :D
