Volcarona – a Shimmering Hurricane

Hey everybody! Today I am going to be showing you the new Dual-Type Volcarona. It is a Grass-Fire type, and is very cool.


Larvesta is a fuzzy, moth larva-like Pokémon. It has blue eyes in a shadowed face. Its white mane of fuzz encompasses its head and the upper half of its body, while its lower half is brown. It has three pairs of small black legs. There are five orange, slightly whorled horns on the sides of its head, which it can use to spit fire as a defensive tactic to deter predators. It has been seen using fire it spits from these horns to fly. It lives at the feet of volcanoes.

The fuzz on its upper body is smoky white and tangled. Its abdomen is black in the center and light blue with black dots on the outside. It has six leaf-like wings that are orange in color and have small black spots. Volcarona releases fiery scales from its wings to create a sea of fire. It is said that its fires can replace the sun when it is dark with ash, and it has been known to rescue freezing Pokémon. it can cloak itself with fire and dance to use its signature move, Fiery Dance. Its name is a combination of Volcano and Corona.
