Volbeat #313


Volbeat is a bipedal firefly-like Pokémon. It has a black body with a blue chest and abdomen. It has two yellow stripes across its front, one near its legs and one on its breast. Each limb is separated from its body by a crimson band, and its shoulders are surrounded by a thicker, unfinished one. From the ring across its shoulder, two modest wings protrude. It features a blue face and yellow eyes, as well as curly yellow antennae with black stripes. It has a spherical yellow tail that glows while in a swarm to communicate and make geometric patterns in the sky. Tail Glow was its defining move in Generation III. This is a male-only species; its female equivalent is Illumise. Volbeat is drawn to the delicious perfume emitted by Illumise. It dwells in woodlands near clean ponds, but will relocate if the pond gets contaminated.
