Lunatone (Japanese: ルナトーン Lunatone) is a dual-type Rock/Psychic Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, but it is considered to be a counterpart of Solrock.

Biology

Lunatone is a cream-colored, rock Pokémon with a crescent moon shape. In the center of the crescent is a pointed, beak-like structure. It has deep-set, red eyes, which can cause paralyzing fear or induce sleep. It lives in caves and becomes active under a full moon. The moon increases its power, and its health is tied to the lunar phases. Using its psychic powers, Lunatone floats through the air. It was first discovered at the site of a meteor crash. There's a theory that Lunatone may have originated from outer space.
