===Physiology===
+
Phione is a blue Pokémon with a round head and a tiny body. Phione's head is crowned by a flotation sac with a long, ribbon-like antenna. Its mouth is small, and its eyes are large with blue sclerae and gray irises. Above its eyes are two blue, circular markings connected to the eyes by a thin black line. Its long, flipper-like arms have rounded tips. Phione has a red, oval gem on its chest and a single rudimentary foot spike.
Phione is the result of breeding {{p|Manaphy}} with {{p|Ditto}}. As a result, it is very similar to Manaphy in body structure. It has a tiny body with a red gem on it. Phione has a single rudimentary foot spike and club-like arms. Phione's head is larger than the rest of its body, and extending from its eyes are two small purple circles. It has a flotation sac on its head with a single, ribbon-like antenna on it.
 
 
====Gender differences====
 
Phione is a genderless species.
 
 
====Special abilities====
 
[[File:Phione to water.png|thumb|right|Phione going in the drain]]
 
Phione's abilities are similar to Manaphy's, but weaker. Phione is unable to use a number of attacks that Manaphy is able to learn, most notably: {{m|Tail Glow}}, {{m|Heart Swap}}, {{m|Hyper Beam}}, or {{m|Giga Impact}}. Phione are supposedly able to create a dew that cures all {{status|ailments}}. Phione also has the ability to {{m|Acid Armor|melt}} its body into water and change its body into a more liquid state similar to {{p|Vaporeon}}.
 
 
===Behavior===
 
Like Manaphy, Phione always return to the place where they were born.
 
This Pokémon is very energetic and playful with its fatherly figure Manaphy.
 
 
===Habitat===
 
Phione live in warm seas, especially around the [[Sinnoh]] region.
 
   
===Diet===
+
Phione inflates the sac on its head to drift in the water and search for food. When the water grows warm, it will drift in packs with other members of its species. No matter how far it has drifted, it will always return to the place where it was born.

===Legendary status===
+
===Mythical status===
Phione's status as a [[legendary Pokémon]] is often disputed, due to the fact that it can breed and multiple individuals can be obtained. [[Pokémon.com]]'s mailbag was once asked if Phione was legendary, to which the answer was initially no, but was quickly changed to yes; the whole mailbag section has since been taken down with the restructure of Pokémon.com. In the official game guide to {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, which is made by [[The Pokémon Company International]], it is stated that Phione is not legendary. In [[Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs]], it is not referred to by the game as "rare" or "legendary", which is the case for all other legendary Pokémon in the game, though it is placed directly before the [[legendary birds]] in the [[Oblivia Browser]], and cannot be obtained until the game is completed. In [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness]], Phione has a 100% recruit rate, is never battled, and the player is not allowed to recruit more than one to their team, all of which are traits shared by legendary Pokemon. Phione is banned from the [[Battle Frontier (Generation IV)|Battle Frontier]] in [[Generation IV]], and the [[Battle Subway]] in {{game|Black and White|s}}, a rule which typically applies only to legendary Pokémon. Notably, and unlike Manaphy, Phione [[List of Pokémon that do not appear in any regional Pokédex|is not found in any regional Pokédex]], a trait that is exclusive to [[Generation IV]] legendary Pokémon.
+
Phione's status as a [[Mythical Pokémon]] is disputed, with several pieces of evidence and even official statements often contradicting each other.
  +
  +
====Evidence for====
  +
[[File:Phione Mythical 2011 Style Guide.png|thumb|250px|Proof from the 2011 Style Guide]]
  +
* [[Pokémon.com]]'s mailbag was [http://www.pokemon.com/#mailbag_02042008 once asked]{{dead link}} if Phione was Legendary. The official answer was initially no, but was quickly changed to yes; the whole mailbag section has since been taken down with the restructure of Pokémon.com.
  +
* Phione is listed under the Mythical Pokémon section in the Pokémon 2011 Style Guide.
  +
* Phione is listed as a Mythical Pokémon in the [[Pokémon Deluxe Essential Handbook]].
  +
* Phione was a usable Pokémon in the [[n:Circle of Legends Wi-Fi competition announced|''Circle of Legends'' tournament]], in which only Legendary and Mythical Pokémon were allowed.
  +
* Phione is banned from the [[2016 World Championships|2016 Video Game Championships]] due to being a Mythical Pokémon.
  +
* Phione is listed as a Mythical Pokémon in a [http://www.nintendo.co.uk/News/2016/September/From-Mew-to-Magearna-discover-Mythical-Pokemon-in-our-feature-news-1138664.html September 2016 Nintendo feature story on Mythical Pokémon].
  +
* In the [[Generation VII]] [[Global Trade System]], if the player chooses to exclude people seeking Mythical or Legendary Pokémon, people seeking Phione will not be displayed.
  +
  +
====Evidence against====
  +
* [[Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver: Prima's Official Strategy Guide]] states that Phione is not Legendary (a term used at the time to describe both Legendary and Mythical Pokémon) due to it being able to be obtained by hatching Eggs.
  +
* In [[Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs]], all Mythical Pokémon are referred to as "rare," but Phione is not. It is also found normally in the wild.
  +
* All Mythical Pokémon are listed in [[Pokémon Daisuki Club]]'s [http://www.pokemon.jp/special/mystery/column/02.html#column09 Mystery File] feature website, but Phione is missing.
  +
  +
====Other====
  +
* Phione {{pkmn|Egg}}s can be received at {{pkmn|Day Care}}s and the {{pkmn|Nursery}}, and it can breed to produce another Phione. This is impossible with any other Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
  +
** However, Manaphy can also breed to produce Phione, and Manaphy is a confirmed Mythical Pokémon.
  +
* Phione [[List of Pokémon that do not appear in any regional Pokédex|is not found in any regional Pokédex]], a trait that is otherwise exclusive to [[Generation IV]] Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
  +
** Phione is also not needed to obtain the [[diploma]], a trait otherwise exclusive to Mythical Pokémon.
  +
* Phione is banned from the {{Gdis|Battle Frontier|IV}}, the [[Battle Subway]], the [[Pokémon World Tournament]], the [[Battle Maison]], and the [[Battle Tree]], a rule which typically applies only to Mythical Pokémon and [[Special Pokémon]]; the only non-Mythical Pokémon to have been event-only at one point, {{p|Zorua}} and {{p|Zoroark}}, were allowed in the Battle Subway, indicating Phione's battle facility ban may be due to it being Mythical.
  +
** Phione is also banned from most online competitions and online battles.
  +
* In the [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series]]:
  +
** In [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness|Explorers of Time, Darkness]] and [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky|Sky]], Phione has a 100% recruit rate, is never battled, and the player is not allowed to recruit more than one to their team, all of which are traits otherwise only exhibited by Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
  +
** In {{pkmn|Super Mystery Dungeon}}, {{p|Hoopa}} is able to summon Phione as an ally. Only Legendary and Mythical Pokémon are able to be summoned in this way.
  +
* In [[Pokémon Rumble Blast]], Phione can only be unlocked once a certain number of customers have shopped at the Toy Shop, a trait otherwise exclusive to Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
  +
* Phione was featured in Pokémon.com's [[n:Official Pokémon website announces Pokémon Power Bracket|2012 Pokémon Power Bracket]], a single-elimination tournament where all other Pokémon in the bracket were Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
  +
* Phione's [[List of Pokémon by base stats (Generation VII-present)|base stat total]] is 480. No other fully evolved Mythical Pokémon has a base stat total less than 580.
  +
* The [[Pokémon Ultra Sun & Pokémon Ultra Moon: The Official Alola Region Strategy Guide]] has two separate pieces of conflicting information about Phione's Mythical status within itself. It lists Phione as Mythical, but also states that Manaphy is the only Mythical Pokémon that can breed.
  +
* [[Pokémon HOME]] also has two pieces of conflicting information. In the [[Global Trade System]] of the game, if the player chooses to exclude people seeking Mythical or Legendary Pokémon, people seeking Phione will still be displayed. However, Phione, like all other Mythical Pokémon, cannot be traded over the Global Trade System through normal means.

====Name origin====
Phione's name is likely a combination of the final syllable of Manaphy's name with {{wp|clione}}, sea angels. Clione are remarkably popular in Japanese documentaries, especially in {{wp|Hokkaido}}, on which Sinnoh is based (this may also explain their appearance in [[Chocovine Town]]). Like clione, Phione's name is pronounced in three syllables.

Phione (Japanese: フィオネ Phione) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, it can only be obtained by breeding Manaphy or another Phione with Ditto.

It is a member of the sea guardians with Manaphy.

Phione's status as a Mythical Pokémon is often disputed, with contradiction occurring even between official sources.

Contents

Biology

Phione is a blue Pokémon with a round head and a tiny body. Phione's head is crowned by a flotation sac with a long, ribbon-like antenna. Its mouth is small, and its eyes are large with blue sclerae and gray irises. Above its eyes are two blue, circular markings connected to the eyes by a thin black line. Its long, flipper-like arms have rounded tips. Phione has a red, oval gem on its chest and a single rudimentary foot spike.

Phione inflates the sac on its head to drift in the water and search for food. When the water grows warm, it will drift in packs with other members of its species. No matter how far it has drifted, it will always return to the place where it was born.

Trivia

  • Phione is the only Pokémon that is obtainable by breeding a Mythical Pokémon.
  • Breeding either Manaphy or Phione can produce a Phione Egg, but Phione is unable to evolve into Manaphy nor produce Eggs that can hatch into Manaphy.
  • Phione, Nidoran♂, Nidoran♀, Illumise and Volbeat are the only Pokémon that can be obtained by breeding a Pokémon they cannot evolve into.
  • Phione has exactly the same base stats as Glalie.

Mythical status

Phione's status as a Mythical Pokémon is disputed, with several pieces of evidence and even official statements often contradicting each other.

Evidence for

Proof from the 2011 Style Guide

Evidence against

Other

  • Phione Eggs can be received at Day Cares and the Nursery, and it can breed to produce another Phione. This is impossible with any other Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
    • However, Manaphy can also breed to produce Phione, and Manaphy is a confirmed Mythical Pokémon.
  • Phione is not found in any regional Pokédex, a trait that is otherwise exclusive to Generation IV Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
    • Phione is also not needed to obtain the diploma, a trait otherwise exclusive to Mythical Pokémon.
  • Phione is banned from the Battle Frontier, the Battle Subway, the Pokémon World Tournament, the Battle Maison, and the Battle Tree, a rule which typically applies only to Mythical Pokémon and Special Pokémon; the only non-Mythical Pokémon to have been event-only at one point, Zorua and Zoroark, were allowed in the Battle Subway, indicating Phione's battle facility ban may be due to it being Mythical.
    • Phione is also banned from most online competitions and online battles.
  • In the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series:
    • In Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky, Phione has a 100% recruit rate, is never battled, and the player is not allowed to recruit more than one to their team, all of which are traits otherwise only exhibited by Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
    • In Super Mystery Dungeon, Hoopa is able to summon Phione as an ally. Only Legendary and Mythical Pokémon are able to be summoned in this way.
  • In Pokémon Rumble Blast, Phione can only be unlocked once a certain number of customers have shopped at the Toy Shop, a trait otherwise exclusive to Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
  • Phione was featured in Pokémon.com's 2012 Pokémon Power Bracket, a single-elimination tournament where all other Pokémon in the bracket were Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
  • Phione's base stat total is 480. No other fully evolved Mythical Pokémon has a base stat total less than 580.
  • The Pokémon Ultra Sun & Pokémon Ultra Moon: The Official Alola Region Strategy Guide has two separate pieces of conflicting information about Phione's Mythical status within itself. It lists Phione as Mythical, but also states that Manaphy is the only Mythical Pokémon that can breed.
  • Pokémon HOME also has two pieces of conflicting information. In the Global Trade System of the game, if the player chooses to exclude people seeking Mythical or Legendary Pokémon, people seeking Phione will still be displayed. However, Phione, like all other Mythical Pokémon, cannot be traded over the Global Trade System through normal means.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Phione is probably based on sea angels, specifically clione. Clione are remarkably popular in Japanese documentaries, especially in Hokkaido, on which Sinnoh is based. This may also explain their appearance in Chocovine Town.

Name origin

Phione may be a combination of the final syllable of Manaphy and clione (sea angels). Like clione, Phione is pronounced in three syllables.
