Volcarona (Japanese: ウルガモス Urugamosu) is a Bug/Fire-type Pokémon introduced in the Generation V games Pokemon Black and White. It evolves from Larvesta at Level 59. One can also catch a Level 70 Volcarona in the Relic Castle. It is seen in-game as the Champion Alder's strongest Pokémon at Level 77. It resembles an Atlas moth. Contrary to popular belief, Volcarona is not a pseudo-legendary, it is a semi-pseudo as its stat total is 550 instead of 600, and it evolves once, not twice.

In the anime

Volcarona made its first appearance in BW080: Guarding the Guardian of the Mountain!.


Volcarona is the evolved form Larvesta as of level 59.

Volcarona's name is a portmanteau of "volcano" and "corona", which is the top layer of the atmosphere of the sun. It is fitting, as Volcarona is referred to as the "Sun Pokémon".


  • Volcarona shares the same species with Sunflora and Espeon; they're all known as the Sun Pokémon.
  • 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.
  • It is the only Pokémon who can learn Fiery Dance.
  • Its pre-evolution, Larvesta, is a physical attacker, while Volcarona is a special attacker.
  • Volcarona was the first Bug-type Pokémon to learn the move Fly. The second was Genesect.
    • Intrestingly, neither of these two Pokémon are the Flying type.
  • Volcarona, along with its pre-evolution are the only non-Flying type Pokémon to have a double weakness to Rock type moves.
