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.


Volcarona will appear in BW080.

When volcanic ash darkened the atmosphere, it is said that Volcarona's fire provided a replacement for the sun.
A sea of fire engulfs the surroundings of their battles, since they use their six wings to scatter their ember scales.
