Mothread (Japanese: Orukuga, オルクガ) is a dual Bug and Flying-type Pokémon. It evolves from Silkbyx at level 12 and from Pupalk at level 19.


Mothread has a white furry coat comprised of silky white hair. It has an exoskeleton thorax that is often strengthened by silk. It has a white coloration save for black markings on it's face. It has large dark grey eyes. It has a pair of large fuzzy wings that it uses to scatter power with.


It can beat its wings in order to send out dust which can stun nearby enemies. It can also strengthen its defenses or immobilize would-be attackers through the use of silk.


It can often be found in groups of other Mothreads as they hover around lights at night. It seems attracted to bright lights.


Mothread feeds primarily on leafy matter and pollen.


It can be found in grasslands and forests.


Version Description
Metal Mothread seems attracted to lights during the night. It is highly unwise to turn on a light in areas where Mothreads are often known to congregate.
Wood It will cover its body including its wings in strong silk. It does this not only to protect itself from its enemies but also from the elements like wind and rain.
