Reuniclus (Japanese: ランクルス Lanculus) is a Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Duosion starting at level 41. It is the final form of Solosis.

Biology

Reuniclus is a pale green Pokémon surrounded by a blob of translucent, green gelatinous substance. It has a large, round head with a thin stripe down the center. Its eyes are black and oval, while its mouth is red and triangular. Its body is small with stubby arms and legs. However, there are several round objects floating next to its arms. These objects increase in size and darken in color the further they are from the body and form arm-like appendages. The gel around these appendages forms three-fingered hands. Above its head, two rounded, triangular objects are suspended in the gel, giving the impression of horns or ears. The gel forms a stubby, round tail at the base of Reuniclus's body.

Reuniclus controls its powerful arms using psychic powers. It can form a network with the brains of other Reuniclus by clasping hands with them. It is said that the power of Reuniclus is so great, it can crush boulders psychokinetically. Although capable of using its psychic powers in battle, Reuniclus prefers to use its large arms to pummel opponents. Drinking the liquid covering Reuniclus's body is said to grant wisdom; however, the liquid is extremely toxic.

Evolution

Reuniclus evolves from Duosion and is the final form of Solosis.

Trivia

  • Reuniclus can be seen as a counterpart to Gothitelle. Both are Generation V Psychic-type Pokémon that are the final stage of a three-stage evolutionary line with first evolution at level 32 and second at level 41. Reuniclus is exclusive to Pokémon White, White 2, and Shield, while Gothitelle is exclusive to Pokémon Black, Black 2, and Sword. They both have the same base experience and catch rates, gain new moves at similar levels, and have base stat totals of 490.
  • Reuniclus and its evolutionary relatives are the only known Pokémon to learn Thunder by TM/TR but not Thunderbolt in every generation they appear in.
  • Reuniclus was designed by Keiko Moritsugu.[1]

Origin

Reuniclus 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. It also seems to take inspiration from the sea angel. The line down its head also resembles a cleavage furrow in cell biology. It may also make allusion to the embryonary stages, specifically when the embryo is fully developed to become a fetus, while the green jelly may represent the amniotic fluid.

The way its organelles are lined up in Reuniclus's arms resemble the generic meter for volume control, most likely referencing the ability to amplify its powers. Reuniclus also has a strong resemblance to a homunculus, due to its larger ears, mouth, and hands, to represent a homunculus's ability to amplify. It may also be based partially on an amoeba, with its arms resembling pseudopods.

Name origin

Reuniclus may be a combination of reunite and homunculus, nucleus, or cluster.

Lanculus may be a combination of 卵 ran (spawn) and homunculus.
