Finizen (Japanese: ナミイルカ Namiiruka) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It evolves into Palafin when leveled up while connected with another player via the Union Circle starting at level 38.

Biology

Finizen is a light blue cetacean Pokémon resembling a dolphin. It has a pale bluish white coloration on its underbelly that extends to its lower jaw and eyes, as well as on its dorsal fin. Its eyes have two-tone blue and pink pupils, and it has a short snout. On the sides of its body are pale bluish white wave patterns. It has a pair of pectoral fins and a split tailfin. Finizen has a ring of water surrounding the base of its tail, which it creates by mixing seawater with a fluid that it secretes from the singular blowhole atop its head. The water ring can detach from its body and grow in size, and Finizen uses it to play with others of its own kind.

Finizen is able to sense the emotions of other creatures by using ultrasonic waves. It lives in pods, competes with Barraskewda for food, and is preyed upon by Dragalge.

Evolution

Finizen evolves into Palafin.
