Luxio (Japanese: ルクシオ Luxio) is an Electric-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Shinx starting at level 15 and evolves into Luxray starting at level 30.

Biology

Luxio is a feline, quadruped Pokémon resembling a young lynx or lion. Blue and black fur covers most of its body. Its ears, face, hind paws, and front half of its body are blue, while its hindquarters are black. Additionally, Luxio has a tufty black mane surrounding its face. The mane is longer on the male Luxio, while the fur on the hind paws extends to ankles on the female. The insides of its rounded are yellow, as are its eyes. There are two yellow rings around each front leg and a yellow, four-point star on the tip of its tail. Luxio is able to communicate with others of its kind using electrical pulses from its claws. Luxio lives in small groups, and is able to generate powerful electricity by gathering the group's tails together.

Major appearances

Luxio first appeared in the movie The Rise of Darkrai. It was among the Pokémon in the garden. Luxio seemed to be shy, as it hesitated before it ran to Ash and his friends' Pokémon. It participated in the short-lived massive fight.

In Leading a Stray!, a Luxio helped a Wailmer that was trapped in the sewers and the Wailmer made it back into the ocean safely and evolved into a Wailord.

Minor appearances

It also made a brief cameo at the beginning of Giratina and the Sky Warrior.

Another Luxio appeared in Sticking With Who You Know!.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP109 Luxio Ash's Pokédex Luxio, the Spark Pokémon. By touching friends with its front paws, Luxio is able to communicate through the sparks it emits.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

Luxio in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Rayler

A wild Luxio attacked Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum on their journey. Due to its broken claws, the Luxio was unable to communicate with its group and was shunned by them. In an attempt to regain its group's favor, it battled with Diamond's Pokémon. Pearl eventually managed to get its comrades' trust and befriended the Luxio. Later, it evolved into a Luxray and joined Pearl's team after being named Rayler.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Hareta's Shinx evolved into Luxio after defeating B-2 on Iron Island. Its Trainer attempted to use it against Cyrus's Gyarados at Lake Valor, but it was instead ambushed by Saturn's Rhyperior, who had been revived after being knocked out. Later, it evolved into Luxray during Hareta's Pokémon League battle with Koya.
