Mesprit (Japanese: エムリット Emrit) is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Along with Uxie and Azelf, Mesprit is a member of the lake guardians, the Sinnoh region's Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon trio. Mesprit is known as the bringer of emotion.

Biology

Mesprit is a small, gray, fairy-like Pokémon. It has two tails that each have a red jewel encrusted in them. These are, presumably, two of the jewels which comprise the Red Chain. Mesprit has a partially magenta face with four long, drooping appendages and another red gem encrusted in its forehead.

Mesprit's spirit can leave its body without dying and return to the body at will. Legends say that a person that touches it will have their emotions completely drained away. Mesprit was highly feared due to it punishing those who disrespect it; Mesprit will throw their emotions into disarray. Mesprit is said to have taught humans the ability to feel sorrow, pain, and joy. It was shown in The Needs of the Three! and The Battle Finale of Legend! that it can teleport itself, as well as other Pokémon and humans. Though playful, it is a bit mischievous. Mesprit is known as "The Being of Emotion". Mesprit and the other lake guardians have the power to calm Dialga/Palkia should the deity be enraged. In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Mesprit is shown to be capable of speech via telepathy.

Mesprit and the other lake guardians are the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Mystical Power.

Major appearances

Mesprit (anime)

In Following A Maiden Voyage!, Dawn saw the projected "soul" of Mesprit near Lake Verity.

Mesprit physically debuted in The Needs of the Three!, where it and Uxie came to Lake Valor after Azelf was captured. However, they were also captured by J and Team Galactic, but beforehand, they used Future Sight, destroying her ship later on. It was then controlled by the team to help fulfill its goal. In The Battle Finale of Legend!, after breaking from their control with the help of Dawn's Piplup and Cynthia's Garchomp, it helped stop Cyrus's plot to use Dialga and Palkia. It reappeared in Pokémon: The Arceus Chronicles, helping to stop a rampaging Heatran.

Other

In PK21, a Mesprit, Azelf, and Uxie served Pikachu and his friends some apples.

Minor appearances

In the Diamond & Pearl arc, Mesprit was to be captured as part of Team Galactic's plans. Commander Mars led the operation to capture Mesprit, and succeeded; though Diamond had tried to stop her, he was captured along with Mesprit and taken to Team Galactic's Veilstone headquarters. Mesprit connected with Diamond the most, as he had great emotional control; Diamond also saw Mesprit at Lake Verity when he was young. It first appeared in Tackling Tangrowth.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

On the Spear Pillar stage, occasionally the lake guardians make cameo appearances during the fight; they do nothing, however.

Trophy information

An Emotion Pokémon said to have taught humans emotions. Rumor is, if you touch Mesprit, you'll lose all emotions three days later. It sleeps at the base of Lake Verity, but once engaged in battle, it will rise from the water to fly around the Sinnoh region. Even if you see this Pokémon after your initial meeting, it'll try to flee battle, so catching it is quite a task.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Mesprit appears as a Spirit alongside Uxie and Azelf.

Trivia

  • Mesprit is somewhat unique among the members of its trio, as it leaves Lake Verity and begins roaming Sinnoh after being encountered by the player in Lake Verity's cavern.
    • In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, Mesprit is the only one of the lake guardians to fight the main character in battle during the main story; despite being depicted as a calm and peaceful Pokémon, it was enraged by a previous attack on its counterpart Uxie and quite fiercely attacked the hero and their partner.
  • Mesprit shares its category with Kirlia and Indeedee. They are all known as the Emotion Pokémon.
  • Mesprit is tied with Uxie and Azelf for the highest base friendship of all Legendary Pokémon.
  • In Generation IX, prior to the Version 2.0.1 update of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Mesprit was unable to learn moves via Move Reminder.

Origin

Mesprit seems to be based on a spirit or a sprite. The lake guardians could possibly have originated from the Imperial Regalia of Japan, which are also called the Three Sacred Treasures. Mesprit would be the Yasakani no Magatama, which embodies benevolence.

Name origin

Mesprit may be a combination of M of the acronym UMA (Unidentified Mysterious Animal, wasei-eigo for cryptid) and spirit or sprite. It may also involve esprit (liveliness of mind or spirit, and French for 'spirit') or the pronoun me.

Emrit may be a combination of M of the acronym UMA (Unidentified Mysterious Animal, wasei-eigo for cryptid) and spirit.
