Lumineon (Japanese: ネオラント Neolant) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Finneon starting at level 31.

Contents

Biology

Lumineon is a fish-like Pokémon with dark blue scales. Its eyes are deep pink, and its face and eyelids are light blue. It has two pairs of large pectoral fins that resemble butterfly wings. These fins have wavy, light blue markings around the edges, and the lower pair is longer on the female. There is a band of light blue running vertically around its body. Its tail is long with a deep pink spot at the tip, and it has a pair of light blue pelvic fins.

Lumineon usually makes its home deep in the ocean, where it walks along the seafloor using the fins on its chest. This behavior helps it to avoid predators. Lumineon attracts its own prey by using the patterning on its wing-like fins, and typically competes with Lanturn for food. Lumineon preys on Staryu and Starmie.

Trivia

Origin

Lumineon seems to be based on a freshwater butterflyfish, but it also possesses wings based on actual butterflies, something the butterflyfish does not. In its Platinum Pokédex entry, it is said to walk on the seafloor using its fins, similar to a deepsea tripod fish. It exhibits bioluminescence according to its Diamond, HeartGold, and SoulSilver Pokédex entries, suggesting a possible inspiration in fish that have this ability, such as the marine hatchetfish. Its iridescent appearance and long fins also share some resemblance to a Siamese fighting fish. Its name suggests it may be based on the neon tetra.

Name origin

Lumineon is a combination of luminous, lumen, and neon.

Neolant may be a combination of neon and lantern.
