How to get Mothim in Pokémon GO.

If you try to bring in Mothim Pokemon GO, you must catch and evolve a Burmy. However, not every Burmy will work, as the female and male versions of Burmy evolve into different Pokémon.

That means you want to capture a male Burmy, which will eventually evolve into Mothim.

Once you’ve acquired a male Burmy (check his profile and look to the right of his name for the male or female symbol) you simply need to feed him 50 Burmy candies.

This will turn your Burmy into a Mothim. If you accidentally caught a female Burmy, you can feed her 50 Burmy Candy to make her evolve into a Lady Worm.

Unfortunately, there is no way to tell if a Burmy is male or female until you catch it. Because of this, be sure to catch every Burmy you come across – with a bit of luck, you should be able to catch a male Burmy after just a few tries.

Also note that Mothim is not currently found in the wild. This makes catching and evolving a Burmy the only way to get Mothim in Pokemon GO.

In other words, don’t go for a walk expecting to encounter a Mothim, as there’s no chance you’ll ever see one (although that might change with a future update).
