Hydreigon (Japanese: サザンドラ Sazandora) is a dual-type Dark/Dragon pseudo-legendary Pokémon.

It evolves from Zweilous starting at level 64. It is the final form of Deino.

Biology

Hydreigon is a three-headed, draconic Pokémon with six thin, black wings on its back each of which ends in two points. On its neck is a fuchsia-colored collar which surrounds its head. The main head is dark blue and its eyes are black with fuchsia pupils. Its hands are also black and harbor a head in each one; these heads are similarly blue with black eyes. There are small collars on the inside of its hands. On its abdomen are two overall-like fuchsia stripes. Its feet appear atrophied, having no claws or defined soles and two or three small toes. Its tail also sports a fuchsia stripe with a black tuft on the end of it. Hydreigon is a violent, destructive Pokémon. It will attack anything that moves, determining it a foe. Its heads can consume anything.

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity: Hydreigon was at first described by Munna as an evil Pokémon who is pure destruction in Pokémon form, devours everything in his path, and said to be the cause of the world's balance being disrupted. In truth, Munna's words about him was all a lie to trick the player, and Hydregion is really the physical embodiment of the Voice of Life, the form of the world's will to live, who called upon humans to save the Pokémon world as no Pokémon could hope to save it. He originally first contacted the player through a dream before Munna intercepted the vision, and by using Hydreigon's voice, she tricked the player into thinking Hydreigon was evil.

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Hydreigon and its evolutionary relatives.
  • Of all the Pokémon that evolve by leveling up, Hydreigon evolves from its pre-evolution later than any other Pokémon, at level 64.
  • Hydreigon shares its species name with Sharpedo. They are both known as the Brutal Pokémon.

Origin

Hydreigon is based on the Yamata no Orochi, including its red eyes. Its three heads and Shiny coloration resemble the Zmey Gorynych. It may also incorporate elements of the Lernaean Hydra. These mythological serpents may have inspired Hydreigon's Dark typing, as all three are deadly antagonists, with the Zmey Gorynych in particular shown to be deceptive.

According to interviews with Ken Sugimori in Nintendo Dream, Hydreigon and its evolutionary family were originally intended to be cyborg dragons with aspects of tanks. The Pokémon were scrapped until late in development, when they were revived and remade to be based on Yamata no Orochi. The tank tread-like markings on Hydreigon's body are a remnant of this design. Although Yamata no Orochi typically has eight heads in mythology, Hydreigon was designed with fewer heads to appear less confusing.

Name origin

Hydreigon may be a combination of hydra, drei (German for three), and dragon.

Sazandora may be a combination of 三 san (three) and dragon or hydra.
