These wings are a tanned sort of colour with an orangey-brown ovals that place near where the wings meet its back. On the larger wings there are three tips that are orangey-brown while the smaller wings have two tips in the same colour. Its tail what is split into two is black, like most of its body.

Trading Card Game
Mothim is listed in Pokémon Organized Play Series 7 as a Rare Card. It is listed as an Uncommon Card in the Majestic Dawn set, and as a Rare Card in the Secret Wonders and Arceus sets.
Mothim has yet to appear in any of the films as of writing.
Mothim's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
The addition of Quiver Dance to its Movepool has allowed Mothim to become a viable option in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling, giving it potential to cause plenty of damage with Special Attacks. However, like others that share its Typing, Stealth Rock takes away half of its HP when it switches in. Pokémon with Priority moves will also be able to take Mothim down, as its low Defenses leave it frail.
Mothim cannot learn any moves by way of Breeding.
