Venomoth is a Bug/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.


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 head, thorax, and abdomen, unlike some other Bug Pokémon. The wings of Venomoth much are larger than Venomoth's body, with the top wings being much larger than the bottom. Its shiny incarnation has blue wings, head and upper body, whereas its lower body (abdomen) and legs are brown.

Special 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.


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