'''[[Phione]]''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese:]] '''フィオネ''' ''Phione'') is a {{type|Water}} Pokémon known as the Sea Drifter Pokémon, and '''[[Manaphy]]''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''マナフィ''' ''Manaphy'') is a {{type|Water}} Pokémon known as the Seafaring Pokémon. Phione live in warm seas, using the inflation sac on their heads to search for food and to drift in packs, always returning to the place of their birth. Manaphy are born on cold seafloors, also swimming great distances to return to their birthplace, and are born with a wondrous power to bond with any kind of Pokémon. Together, these two Pokémon species make up a Mythical duo of a parent and child.
Manaphy has the unique ability among Mythical Pokémon to breed with {{p|Ditto}} in captivity, producing the slightly weaker Phione, which ishas somewhat80 weakerdistributed thaninto every stat instead of 100, as Manaphy has. This is the only legitimate way to obtain a Phione in-game.
Phione's status as a Mythical Pokémon is disputed, with even official sources contradicting one another. Further information can be found [[Phione#Mythical status|here]].

'''[[Darkrai]]''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''ダークライ''' ''Darkrai'') is a {{type|Dark}} Pokémon known as the Pitch-Black Pokémon. It chases people and Pokémon away from its territory by causing them to experience deep, nightmarish slumbers. However, it is merely protecting itself, and means no harm. It is particularly active on moonless nights.
Darkrai has appeared in [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness]], [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky]], and in ''[[DP104|Sleepless in Pre-Battle!]]'' as an enemy of the Legendary Pokémon {{p|Cresselia}}, and they are considered by fans to be the {{DL|Legendary duo|lunar duo}}.
Darkrai was officially revealed February 2007, and was first made available to those who owned Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and watched [[M10|Pokémon: The Rise of Darkrai]] in Japan from release to September 9, 2007. Other distributions were made available afterwards. Notably, in {{pkmn|Platinum}}, an event gave the [[Member Card]] to players over [[Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection]], activating an in-game event which allowed for capture of Darkrai on [[Newmoon Island]].
[[File:492Shaymin-Land.png|thumb|150px|right|Artwork of {{p|Shaymin from {{pkmn|Diamond and Pearl}}.]]
'''Shaymin''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''シェイミ''' ''Shaymin'') is a {{type|Grass}} Pokémon known as the Gratitude Pokémon. Shaymin live in flower patches and avoid detection by curling up to look like a flowering plant. Shaymin are able to dissolve toxins in the air to transform ruined land into a lush field of flowers. When sensing gratitude, the flowers all over its body burst into bloom.
When exposed to the blooming [[Gracidea|Gracidea flower]] during the daytime, Shaymin becomes Sky Forme Shaymin. Sky Forme has altered stats from its original Land Forme and takes on the [[Flying (type)|Flying]] type as a secondary type. Shaymin will revert into its Land Forme at night, while {{status|frozen}}, or when deposited into the [[PC]].
Shaymin was officially revealed in February 2008 as a star of [[M11|Giratina and the Sky Warrior]], and in early June 2008, its Sky Forme was revealed. Shaymin was first made available to owners of Pokémon {{pkmn|Diamond and Pearl}} during the theatrical showing of the movie in Japan from July 19 to September 30, 2008. Other distributions were later made available, but a notable distribution occurred for North American and PAL players from September 28 to November 8, 2009 through distribution of the [[List of key items in Generation IV|key item]] [[Oak's Letter]]. This item allowed players to access [[Seabreak Path]] and capture a Shaymin in [[Flower Paradise]].

'''Arceus''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''アルセウス''' ''Arceus'') is a {{type|Normal}} Pokémon known as the Alpha Pokémon. According to mythology, Arceus emerged from an egg before the universe even existed, then shaped the world with its 1,000 arms.
Arceus is known as "The Original One", as it is said to have created the regions of [[Sinnoh]] and [[Ransei]], and may have created the entire [[Pokémon universe]]. Arceus created two [[legendary trio|Legendary trios]]. First, it created the [[creation trio]]: Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina, to balance time, space, and antimatter. Then, it created the [[lake guardians]]: [[Uxie]], [[Mesprit]], and [[Azelf]], and created spirit. As their creator, it is both trios' [[trio master]]. It is unique in this regard, as it is the only Mythical Pokémon to be the master of a Legendary trio, and the only Pokémon to be the master of two.
