In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Mothim is a Bug and Flying-type Pokémon that evolves from Burmy (at level 20, but must be male). This Pokémon is a decent one to have on a team as its move pool and stats make it pretty versatile.

Mothim’s Flying and Bug-typing means that most of its powerful moves are also Bug and Flying-type as they benefit from S.T.A.B. (Same Type Attack Bonus). This means that Pokémon using moves that match their typing will do increased damage in battle with those moves.
