Illumise (イルミーゼ) is the 87th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. She is a Bug Type, and is known as the Firefly Pokémon.

Illumise can have one of two Abilities: Oblivious, which prevents infatuation from the attack Attract, the Ability Cute Charm, or the Destiny Knot Held Item activating due to successful usage of the move Attract; or Tinted Lens, which doubles the power of moves that the opponent has a resistance to. Illumise's Hidden Ability is the Prankster Ability. This Ability increases the Speed Priority of all moves that are in the Status Category by 1, working for moves such as Encore and Substitute, for examples.

Illumise does not evolve and does not have a pre-evolved form.

Illumise is in the Egg Groups Bug and Human-Like, and her Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. Her Egg could also hatch as either a Volbeat or an Illumise starting with Generation IV. It takes Illumise approximately 600,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Illumise finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. While it has the same Hidden Ability as her male counterpart Volbeat, she doesn't have access to Tail Glow, keeping her limited to the one and only tier. But what she does have access to shouldn't be underestimated, as she can still afflict an opposing Pokémon with a Status Condition or reduce an opposing Pokémon's Attack or Special Attack before said Pokémon can even attack.

Because Illumise relies so much on Status Attacks, using Taunt against her stops her cold. In addition to a weakness to Stealth Rock, Illumise is rather frail defensively, making an easy target for a Revenge-KO--most attacks that are Super-Effective against her will do the job.
