Finneon (Japanese: ケイコウオ Keikouo) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves into Lumineon starting at level 31.

Biology

Finneon is a small fishlike Pokémon with an ellipsoid body. The bottom half of its body is light-blue while the top half is black. A purple stripe runs across Finneon's horizontal length. This stripe can store sunlight, which allows Finneon to shine vividly at night. It has small blue pectoral fins, two black oval-shaped dorsal fins, and purple eyes. Finneon's most notable feature is the pair of caudal fins that resemble a pair of blue butterfly wings with purple spots. The bottom lobes of a female Finneon's tail fin are bigger than a male's.

Because of its wing-like fins and beautiful appearance, it is known as "The Beautifly of the Sea" and "finery fish". It lives in bodies of water, and it travels in schools, sometimes with Lumineon. Finneon is popular with divers; as a result, it is found living in resorts that feed them. Wingull is a natural predator of Finneon.

Trivia

Origin

Finneon's large tail fins are similar to the freshwater butterflyfish, and they also resemble wings of actual butterflies. It also resembles a neon tetra or a cardinal tetra. Its strong leaps from the water's surface is a known behaviour in flying fish - including how they are easily picked off by birds while airborne.

Name origin

Finneon may be a combination of fin and neon.

Keikouo may be a combination of 蛍光 keikō (fluorescence) and 魚 uo (fish).
