In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Dustox is a Bug and Poison-type Pokémon. It will evolve from Wurmple (at level 7, depending on personality) and Cascoon (at level 10). This Pokémon isn’t the greatest, but it can definitely do in a pinch. Players likely won’t find much use for this Pokémon after the early game.
Dustox is a Bug and Poison-type Pokémon which means its best moves are also Bug and Poison-type. This is because, with S.T.A.B. (Same Type Attack Bonus), Pokémon that use moves matching their typing will receive bonus damage with those moves. Dustox’s best moves are Bug Buzz, Extrasensory, Venoshock, and Silver Wind.
