Mothim (ガーメイ) is the 47th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. He is a Bug/Flying Type, and is known as the Moth Pokémon.

Mothim use an entirely different set of Abilities compared to that of its pre-evolved form Burmy. Its primary Ability is the Swarm Ability, which increases the power of his Bug-Type attacks by 50% once his HP falls below a third of its maximum. Mothim from the Dream World use the Tinted Lens Ability. This Ability doubles the power of any attacks that aren't very effective.

A Male Burmy can evolve into a Mothim starting at Level 20.

Mothim is in the Bug Egg Group, and his Egg will take approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Mothim One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

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.
