Silkbyx (Japanese: Kenbikusu, ケンビクス) is a pure Bug-type Pokémon. It evolves into Pupalk at level 12 and then into Mothread at level 19.


It has a segmented, long white body with small black suction cup legs. It also has black markings on its face and small white yellow eyes.


Silkbyx, while appears fragile, is able to use its silk in multiple ways such as restraining foes and building up it's own defenses.


It prefers to be alone or with others of it's own kind. When threatened, it will release its silk in an attempt to slow down its attacker or protect itself from damage.


Onionymph feeds mostly on leaves, fruits, and other leafy matter.


It can be found in grasslands and forests.


Version Description
Metal It will release a sticky string of silk in hopes it will slow down its would-be attacker. It will also cover itself with silk in attempt to protect itself.
Wood Silkbyx can often be found in meadows and forests slowly chewing on leaves. The type of leaves it feeds on helps determine how strong it's silk will be.
