Luxio (Japanese: ルクシオ Luxio) is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Shinx starting at level 15 and evolves into Luxray starting at level 30.

Contents

Biology

Luxio is a feline, quadruped Pokémon resembling a young lynx or lion. Blue and black fur covers most of its body. Its ears, face, hind paws, and front half of its body are blue, while its hindquarters are black. Additionally, Luxio has a tufty black mane surrounding its face. The mane is longer on the male Luxio, while the fur on the hind paws extends to ankles on the female. The insides of its rounded ears are yellow, as are its eyes. There are two yellow rings around each front leg and a yellow, four-point star on the tip of its tail.

Luxio is able to communicate with others of its kind using electrical pulses from its claws. Luxio lives in small groups and is able to generate powerful electricity by gathering the group's tails together. When facing an opponent, Luxio extends its claws in preparation. The claws can unleash 1,000,000 volts of electricity.

Major appearances

Clemont's Luxio

In A Campus Reunion!, Clemont caught a Luxio, which, prior to the episode, evolved from a Shinx that he befriended. In The Future Is Now, Thanks to Determination!, Luxio evolved into a Luxray.

Other

Luxio debuted in The Rise of Darkrai, where it was among the Pokémon residing in a garden in Alamos Town. Luxio seemed to be shy, as it hesitated before it ran to Ash and his friends' Pokémon. It later participated in a near-skirmish between two groups of Pokémon, caused by a misunderstanding. Afterwards, it was a bystander during the battle between Dialga and Palkia.

Luxio made its main series debut in Leading a Stray!, where it helped a Wailmer that was trapped in the sewers. As a result, the Wailmer made it back into the ocean safely and evolved into a Wailord before rejoining its pod.

Minor appearances

A Luxio appeared in the opening sequence of Giratina and the Sky Warrior.

A Luxio appeared in Sticking With Who You Know!.

In A Marathon Rivalry!, a Trainer's Luxio competed in the Pokéathlon held in Camellia Town.

Trivia

  • Luxio is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 363.

Origin

Luxio appears to be based on an adolescent male lion. It may have also been inspired by the mythical sphinx, as its short face, human-like ears, and lion-like appearance are similar. It may have also been inspired by the constellation Leo, due to Luxio's lion-like appearance and the fact that it bears a signature star shape on the end of their tail.

Name origin

Luxio is a combination of lux (Latin for light), lynx, and a corruption of leo (Latin for lion). Notably, the Karnak temple complex in Luxor, Egypt has a famous avenue of sphinxes.
