Volcarona is a large six-winged insectile Pokémon that resembles a fiery moth. It has a small black face and a segmented black abdomen. It has two beady, diamond-shaped blue eyes and two segmented red feelers or antennae on either side of its head. It has a fluffy ruff of white fur covering its chest and back, and four stubby arms tucked inward. It has light teal outer sections on its abdomen. It has six magnificent fiery orange wings that allow it to fly. Its entire body, including its wings, are speckled with black dots that resemble cinders.
It shares similarities with Venomoth that it has a 2 stage evolution line based on a moth.
Its wings resemble the sun when unfurled.
Volcarona may be based off the Kaiju Mothra.
Volcarona and its pre-evolution are the only Pokémon in the game that have the Bug/Fire type combination.
As it is a Bug/Fire type, these are the only Pokémon in the game to lose 50% of their health from Stealth Rock and still take damage from Spikes, without the move Gravity being present or if the Iron Ball item is being held.
