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 is the evolved form Larvesta as of level 59.

In the anime

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


  • 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.
    • Interestingly, 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.


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".
