Venomoth

Venomoth in the anime

Venomoth is a purple moth Pokémon. The eyes of Venomoth are black and much smaller than its pre-evolved form. Venomoth has two white fangs protruding from its mouthpart. Venomoth has a head, thorax, and abdomen, unlike some other Bug Pokémon. The wings of Venomoth are larger than its body, with the top sections of its wings being much larger than the bottoms. Its shiny incarnation has a pale blue wing coloration on its head and upper body, whereas its lower body (abdomen) and legs are a light brown.

Natural abilities

Venomoth can have the ability Shield Dust or the ability Tinted Lens. Shield Dust negates all side effects of attacks. Tinted Lens increases non-effective moves by 1.5x. Venomoth's wings are covered with scales. The scales are poisonous and are released when Venomoth flaps its wings.

Evolution

Venomoth is the evolved form of Venonat as of level 31.
