Venonat (Japanese: コンパン Konpan) is a Bug/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Venonat is covered in large, purple fur. The feet of Venonat are brown and are about half as long as Venonat itself with its hands being the same color but a third of the size. Venonat have two white antennae that stick out of their head. The most notable feature of Venonat is their large, red eyes. It also has a small nose just under its eyes.

Natural abilities

Venonat can have the ability Compoundeyes or the ability Tinted Lens. Compoundeyes increases Venonat's accuracy by 30%. Tinted Lens increases the power of not-very-effective moves by 1.5x. Venonat's eyes are very accurate: they enable Venonat to easily catch extremely small prey. Conway has one in the episode Camping It Up.

Evolution

Venonat evolves into Venomoth at level 31.
