Eternatus (Japanese: ムゲンダイナ Mugendina) is a dual-type Poison/Dragon Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, the player battles a powered-up form of Eternatus known as Eternamax Eternatus in the climax of Pokémon Sword and Shield. Prior to Generation IX, this form could also briefly be seen when it uses its signature move, Eternabeam, but the form itself could not be acquired legitimately in-game.

It is associated with the legendary heroes and was responsible for the Darkest Day.

Biology

 
Eternatus absorbing Galar particles

Eternatus is a gigantic, draconic alien Pokémon. Its body has a vaguely draconic shape and skeletal appearance, and it is largely dark violet with red highlights. Its main body and tail are long and thin and resemble a spinal column, and it has four small, thin limbs ending in claws formed from spindly appendages attached at right angles. Its torso is formed from a cage of appendages resembling ribs, and inside is a glowing pink core that serves as Eternatus's energy source, absorbing energy to sustain it. Its head is triangular and has a pair of white, eye-like markings in the form of three connected circles, as well as a spindly lower jaw with several diamond-shaped teeth. Over its head is a translucent red film held between five long spikes extending toward its body's rear. It also has a pair of thin tendrils extending from its back, formed from numerous triangular segments. Eternatus's gigantic size makes it the tallest known Pokémon with the exception of Dynamax and Gigantamax Pokémon.

Eternatus serves as the source of the Dynamax phenomenon in Galar due to its power leaking out in the form of Galar particles following its defeat 3000 years ago by Zacian, Zamazenta, and two young humans. After it reawakened in the present day, Eternatus's core needed to reabsorb the Galar particles in order to remain active, apparently due to its past defeat weakening it. In Pokémon Masters EX, Eternatus can replace Galar particles by absorbing sync stone energy in massive amounts instead. Its core can also project its absorbed energy into massive blasts fired directly from its center. These blasts are capable of causing more damage to Dynamax and Gigantamax Pokémon. Pieces of its body imbued with its power rain down throughout Galar in the form of Wishing Pieces and Wishing Stars. When it is awake, Eternatus causes a phenomenon dubbed the Darkest Day, in which the massive quantities of Dynamax energy it unleashes cause Pokémon to Dynamax and rampage uncontrollably. It can also sometimes keep other Pokémon from Dynamaxing in its presence. Despite this connection to the phenomenon, it cannot Dynamax itself, as its Eternamax form replaces that effect.

As depicted in the Pokémon Journeys: The Series episode Sword and Shield: "From Here to Eternatus!", Eternatus can use its energy core to target a Pokémon and force it to Dynamax or Gigantamax. Pokémon the Series also elaborates upon its ability to block other Pokémon from Dynamaxing, depicting this power as Eternatus absorbing the Galar particles in the area to make them unavailable for other Pokémon to use. The same episode also shows that Eternatus can forcibly revert other Pokémon that have already Dynamaxed or Gigantamaxed through the same process. In Pokémon Journeys: The Series, Rose coined Eternatus's name, but in the past, it was known as the Darkest Day, as referred to by the people of Galar who feared it 3000 years ago.

As seen in chapter PASS30 of the Pokémon Adventures manga, Eternatus's poison has the capability of altering people's behavior, making them violent and selfish, as shown with Henry after he touched the poison. As later mentioned by Calyrex in PASS38, both met during the first Darkest Day.

Eternatus is an extraterrestrial Pokémon that came to the Pokémon world inside an asteroid around 20,000 years ago. It's implied by Peonia that Eternatus's asteroid (referred to as a Wishing Star) landed at the Crown Tundra, specifically in Slippery Slope, creating a cavern called the Max Lair.

Eternatus is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the moves Dynamax Cannon and Eternabeam.

Forms

 
Eternamax Eternatus uncurling its body at Rose Tower

When Eternatus absorbs all the energy in the Galar region, it transforms into its Eternamax form. Eternamax Eternatus is Eternatus's original form. This form's larger size makes it the tallest known Pokémon in existence. Its sheer size dwarfs even Gigantamax Pokémon. Eternatus briefly assumes this form when using Eternabeam, one of its signature moves.

In this form, Eternatus's shape drastically changes. Its body becomes incredibly long and serpentine with most of its body forming a massive coil. Its entire body glows red, and at regular intervals across its length are black rings with spikes extending outward. Its back tendrils now curl around its main body. Its energy core rests at the center of the coil inside a cage of violet spikes. Eternatus's head takes on the form of a giant hand, with its "fingers" covered in black armor with spikes extending from the back of each segment. At the tip of each finger is a mouth with a glowing pink tongue.

In its Eternamax form, Eternatus's power grows so immense that it causes a great storm of Dynamax energy around it, ripping holes in spacetime amid the storm as it releases a virtually infinite amount of energy. In this form, Eternatus is capable of using its most powerful attack, shooting a large beam from the white spot in its "palm" and several smaller ones from its "fingers" or from all over its immense body. Thanks to a mysterious power, Eternatus can prevent opposing Pokémon from using any moves as it stores its energy. This power however can be countered by both Zacian and Zamazenta in their Crowned forms.

Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.
  • Pokémon Sword and Shield: Eternatus is a main character and a boss in the games. It crashlanded 20,000 years ago in the Galar region within a giant asteroid. Around 3,000 years ago, Eternatus awakened for the very first time and caused a catastrophic event known as the Darkest Day, which caused Pokémon all over the region to Dynamax and go berserk. However, the legendary heroes Zacian and Zamazenta allied themselves with two youths and managed to take Eternatus down, forcing it back into its slumber.
    • In the present day, Chairman Rose awakened Eternatus to use its infinite energy to save Galar from an energy crisis a thousand years into the future. Leon attempted to stop it but failed to catch the Gigantic Pokémon and was defeated by it, leaving it up to the player and Hop to battle it. During the battle, Eternatus entered its Eternamax state, which only caused the situation to become more dire. Using the Rusted Sword and Rusted Shield, the player and Hop summoned Zacian and Zamazenta to fight by their side and managed to defeat Eternatus. The player would catch it soon after to prevent it from causing any further damage.

Form data

During the climax of Pokémon Sword and Shield, the player confronts a powered-up version of Eternatus known as Eternamax Eternatus, which is fought in a semi-scripted Max Raid Battle and uses Max Moves like a Dynamaxed Pokémon.

This form is unobtainable, but briefly appeared in the move animation for Eternabeam prior to Generation IX. In Pokémon Sword and Shield, the move is not treated as a form change internally, and Eternatus's stats and form index value remain unchanged. If Shiny Eternatus uses this move, the Shiny version of its Eternamax form will not be registered in the player's Pokédex. However, a Shiny Eternamax Eternatus can be registered in Pokémon HOME's Pokédex by depositing Shiny Eternatus into HOME's storage, as it automatically registers both forms.

Its cry and base stats are different to those of its regular form (with it having the highest base stats of any Pokémon to date). If a Pokémon targets Eternamax Eternatus with Transform or Imposter, it will instead transform into Eternatus's regular form.

Major appearances

Leon's Eternatus

Eternatus debuted in Flash of the Titans!, where it passed by the Galar-bound plane that Ash and Goh boarded, causing interference to it in the process. It later played a notable role during the Darkest Day arc, before being ultimately caught by Goh, who gave it to Professor Magnolia for safekeeping. In Just a Scone's Throw From Here!, he entrusted Eternatus's ownership to Leon. During Ash and Leon's Masters Eight Tournament battle, Eternatus broke out of its confinement and flew to Wyndon to stabilize the immense energy created by the battle, before returning to the wild as Galar's protector.

Eternatus debuted in Rumble!! The Horrific Darkest Day when Rose started the Darkest Day. In PASS29, it entered its Eternamax form. After being attacked by Zacian and Zamazenta, it suddenly disappeared, only to reappear later and restart the Darkest Day. Once it had been beaten by Zacian and Zamazenta, Casey asked for it to be allowed to stay free, which Oleana agreed to.

Trivia

  • Eternatus is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 690.
  • Eternatus, in both of its forms, is the tallest Pokémon.
  • Eternatus is the heaviest Poison-type and Dragon-type Pokémon, and also the heaviest Pokémon overall introduced in Generation VIII.
  • Eternatus has several similarities to Terapagos. Both are Legendary Pokémon that are responsible for the special type of transformation (Dynamax/Gigantamax and Terastilization) found within their respective origin regions (Galar and Paldea). They also both have transformations exclusive to them related to these phenomena increasing their stats (Eternatus's Eternamax form and Terapagos's Stellar Form, though the former is unobtainable) and can absorb the energy needed to use these transformations from other Pokémon, thereby rendering them unavailable. Both of them were also introduced in a game which would receive DLC and whose game mascots comprise a Legendary duo.
  • Eternatus, Zacian, and Zamazenta are the only Pokémon available in Pokémon Sword and Shield that cannot Dynamax.
    • Pokémon transformed into Zacian, Zamazenta, or Eternatus will also be unable to Dynamax.
    • Despite this, Eternatus is still capable of using Max Moves in its Eternamax form. This makes it the only non-Dynamax Pokémon that can use Max Moves.
  • Eternatus is the first Legendary Pokémon that can be caught with any Poké Ball without the chance of failing.
  • Eternamax Eternatus:
    • Is tied with Blissey for the highest base HP stat of all Pokémon.
    • Has the highest base Defense and Special Defense stats of all Pokémon.
      • A level 100 Eternamax Eternatus could reach 655 in one of these stats, which would cause the stat to overflow to 0, due to a quirk in the coding for Pokémon Sword and Shield which affects no other Pokémon.
    • Has the highest base stat total of all Pokémon, with 1125. This also makes it the only Pokémon with a four-digit base stat total.
    • Is the only alternate form of a Legendary Pokemon that cannot be legitimately used by the player.
  • Eternatus and Regigigas have very similar category names in Japanese, with the only difference being in how they're written: Regigigas's category name is in hiragana (きょだいポケモン), while Eternatus's category name is in katakana (キョダイポケモン). In either case, the category name is pronounced the same: Kyodai Pokémon.
  • Unlike other Pokémon in the anime, Eternatus is animated with 3D animation rather than 2D during the Sword and Shield arc. Currently, it is the only Pokémon to have this distinction.
    • Eternatus is the first Pokémon animated with either 2D or 3D animations outside of movies.
  • In the anime, Chairman Rose is the one who named Eternatus. It had previously shared its name with the Darkest Day event.
  • Eternatus is the first Legendary Pokémon officially owned by a main character or a Champion in the anime.
  • In Pokémon UNITE, if the language is set to Russian, Eternatus is referred to as both Итернатус Iternatus and Этернатус Eternatus, while Pokémon GO and the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online only use the latter spelling.
  • In the anime, Eternatus's voice effect was composed from effects of the kaiju Gamera and Ebirah.[1]

Origin

Eternatus's extraterrestrial nature and dragon-like appearance may be inspired by Uther Pendragon, King Arthur's father, who acquired his epithet and started using dragons on his standards after witnessing a dragon-shaped comet. Its abilities may also draw inspiration from nuclear power, particularly its seemingly endless supply of energy which Rose attempted to use as a power source for Galar and which leaks out in the form of particles and is the source of the Dynamax phenomenon. In fiction, nuclear radiation is often used as a catalyst for granting superpowers or creating kaiju. It also vaguely resembles aliens from various pieces of media. This is also indicated by its association with wishing stars. Eternatus aesthetically seems to also be inspired by the concept of diaphonization, the technique used to stain animal bones and cartilage. This being shown by Eternatus remotely resembling a skeleton. The most common dyes used for this process, alcian blue and alizarin red, could be analogous to Zacian and Zamazenta respectively.

Its overall body shape resembles the skeletal remains of a European dragon, with the ribcage shaped like a cannon and the head resembling that of the common nawab or "dragonhead" caterpillar.

Eternamax Eternatus resembles a hand crossed with a serpent. It may be based on the Lernaean Hydra, a multi-headed serpentine monster from Greek mythology, known for its poisonous breath and blood, with Eternatus's "fingers" representing the Hydra's heads. It may also be based on the biblical Seven Headed Dragon that, in the Book of Revelation, throws one-third of all stars down to the Earth and is ultimately banished to Earth with the Nephilim, the Hebrew giants — an event that ultimately leads to the end of time. This account may also be the origin of the item Wishing Star and the Darkest Day. It may also be inspired by Ananta Shesha, the king of Nagas in Hindu mythology who is usually portrayed as a giant, coiled serpent with a thousand heads capable of spewing venom and fire, though some depictions simplify his appearance down to five heads, again reflected in Eternatus's five "fingers". Shesha bears the deity Vishnu on its coils, similar to how Eternamax Eternatus's core is mounted atop its coiled body.

Name origin

Eternatus may be derived from aether, eternal, eternity, aeternatus (Latin for immortalized), and Thanatus (Latin transliteration of Thanatos, the personification of death in Greek Mythology).

Mugendina may be a combination of 無限大 mugendai (infinity), ダイマックス Daimax (Dynamax) and possibly dynamic.
