In the anime

A Dustox was owned by the Team Rocket member Jessie. It was caught as a Wurmple during her travels in Hoenn. Dustox was often used in Pokémon Contests in Hoenn, Kanto and Sinnoh regions. During Jessie's travels in Sinnoh her Dustox met a male, shiny Dustox and it fell in love with it. Then Jessie released it so to experience love.


Dustox evolves from Cascoon at level 10 which is an evolved form of Wurmple.
