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.

Contents

Biology

Finneon is a small fish 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. Because of its wing-like fins, it is known as "The Beautifly of the Sea". The bottom lobes of a female Finneon's tail fin are bigger than a male's. It lives in bodies of water, and it travels in schools, sometimes with Lumineon. Wingull is a natural predator of Finneon.
