Trivia

  • Volcarona shares the same species with Sunflora and Espeon; they're all known as the Sun Pokémon.
  • It shares similarities with Venomoth that it has a 2 stage evolution line based on a moth.
  • Its wings resemble the sun when unfurled.
  • Volcarona and its pre-evolution are the only Pokémon in the game that have the Bug/Fire type combination.
  • As it is a Bug/Fire type, these are the only Pokémon in the game to lose 50% of their health from Stealth Rock and still take damage from Spikes, without the move Gravity being present or if the Iron Ball item is being held.
  • It is the only Pokémon who can learn Fiery Dance.
  • Its pre-evolution, Larvesta, is a physical attacker, while Volcarona is a special attacker.
  • Volcarona was the first Bug-type Pokémon to learn the move Fly. The second was Genesect.
    • Interestingly, neither of these two Pokémon are the Flying-type.
  • Volcarona, along with its pre-evolution, are the only non-Flying-type Pokémon to have a double weakness to Rock-type moves.

Origin

Volcarona is a moth with some traits of seraphim, which were described in the Bible as fiery angels with six wings. This could be a pun on one species of moth, whose scientific name is Olceclostera seraphica. It may also be based on the kaiju Mothra from the Godzilla movies, similar to how Tyranitar draws inspiration from Godzilla and Hydreigon from King Ghidorah. It might also take inspiration from the saying "like a moth attracted to a flame".

Etymology

Volcarona's name is a portmanteau of "volcano" and "corona", which is the top layer of the atmosphere of the sun. It is fitting, as Volcarona is referred to as the "Sun Pokémon".
