Trivia

  • Despite being a firefly, she can be found all day in the wild in Diamond and Pearl, whereas real fireflies are nocturnal.
  • Illumise is the only non-Grass type Pokémon to learn Growth.
  • Illumise and Volbeat are both known as the Firefly Pokémon
  • Despite being a Bug-type, she can't learn any Bug type move via level up or breeding in Generation III. The only Bug-type move she could learn was Silver Wind.
  • Sometimes, it is said that Illumise and Volbeat need each other to keep living. Just like Plusle and Minun.
  • All of Illumise's Pokédex entries mention Volbeat.
