    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."

      EPIC

        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)

          Venomoth will always be my favorite, but I'm just a 1st Gen fanboy at heart.

          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. :)

            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.

              Why just now I can't decide between Volcarona or Venomoth? Volcarona is the beast of bug pokemon, while Venomoth have unspeakable charm.

              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.

              Volcarona wins this easily by having a unique typing an a favorable design. I also like Mothim because of it being very realistic.

              Dustox for me. I always tend to include one whenever I play R/S/E. Some sort of attraction towards it I guess... :p

                Volcarona's really cool. It's going on my team as soon as I find it. And I like Mothim's design.

                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

                  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.

                    Dustox.

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

                    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.

                      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.

                      "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."

                          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.

                            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.

                            I use hacked pokes with completely legal movesets etc. Hit me up anytime for a 5th gen battle.
