Iron Moth is one of the Paradox Pokémon trainers can encounter in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Introduced in generation nine, Paradox Pokémon are typically only catchable once the main storyline is completed. Additionally, they are rare for their resemblance to contemporary Pokémon.

With over 100 new generation nine Pokémon to get used to, navigating the Paldea Region can be difficult; so here is everything you need to know about Iron Moth. 

Iron Moth Evolution: Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

All Paradox Pokémon, including Iron Moth, do not have evolutionary forms. However as a Paradox Pokémon, Iron Moth, is a part of one of the rarest groups of Pokémon in the game. Iron Moth appears to be generation five Sun Pokémon, Volcarona, from the future. Instead of Volcarona’s Bug and Fire-typing, Iron Moth is Fire and Poison-typed. 

Iron Moth Stats: Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

As a Paradox Pokémon, Iron Moth’s base stats are considerably high: 80 HP, 70 ATK, 60 DEF, 140 SP. ATK, 110 SP. DEF, and 110 SPD. 

Additionally like Iron Valiant, Iron Moth has the Quark Drive Ability which increases the highest stat (other than HP) by 30% when a Pokémon is on Electric Terrain or if it is holding Booster Energy. 

Iron Moth Location: Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
