Volbeat (Japaneseバルビート Barubeat) is a Bug-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

It is related to Illumise and, starting in Generation V, can produce Eggs that contain either Illumise or Volbeat when bred with Ditto.

Biology

Volbeat is a firefly-like, bipedal Pokémon. Its body is black with a blue chest and abdomen. There are two yellow stripes across its front: one on its chest and one near its legs. A red band separates each limb from its body and a thicker, incomplete one surrounds its shoulders. Two simple wings extend from the band around its shoulder. It has a blue face with yellow eyes, and curly, yellow antennae with black stripes. It has a spherical yellow tail, which glows to communicate and draw geometric patterns in the sky while in a swarm. Additionally, the glow allows it to use its former signature movesTail Glow and Signal Beam. This is a male only species; Illumise is its female counterpart. Volbeat is attracted by the sweet aroma given off by Illumise. It lives in forests near clean ponds, but will move if the pond becomes dirty.

Trivia

Origin

Volbeat appears to be based on a firefly like its counterpart, Illumise. Its coloring suggests that it may have been based on the subfamily Cyphonocerinae. Its appearance is based on a greaser, a subculture in the 1950s; their Japanese counterparts are the Bōsōzoku. Greasers usually wore black or brown y-collared trench-coats and/or jackets with under shirts and also had heavily greased hair. This is shown in Volbeat's black colored "shirt", striped belly "under shirt" and "collar". The pose Volbeat takes in its official art may also be a reference to greasers, as they are commonly shown with their hands either holding or popping their jacket collars.

Name origin

Volbeat is a combination of volt (referring to its powers of illumination) and beetle or beat.

Barubeat may be a combination of バルブ barubu (bulb) and beetle.
