Duosion (Japanese: ダブラン Doublan) is a Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Solosis starting at level 32 and evolves into Reuniclus starting at level 41.

Contents

Biology

Duosion is pale green with a large head, stubby arms, and a body that tapers to a point at the bottom. It has oval, black eyes and a red, diamond-shaped mouth. It is encased in a darker green, gelatinous substance that forms small, round bumps on the lower sides and over Duosion's head. A small circular piece of matter floats inside this substance over this Pokémon's head. It has two brains, which occasionally causes it to attempt two different actions at once. However, its exhibits greater psychic powers when the brains think alike.

Trivia

Origin

Duosion and the rest of its evolutionary line seem to bear reference to cells, with the green substance surrounding their bodies resembling cytoplasm and the objects inside their bodies representing organelles. The line down its head also resembles a cleavage furrow due to mitosis. It may also make allusion to the embryonary stages, specifically when the embryo is fully developed to become into a fetus, while the green jelly may represent the amniotic fluid.

Name origin

Duosion may be a combination of duo (two) or double and fission, division, or fusion.

Doublan may be a combination of double and 卵 ran (spawn).
