==Biology==
Phione is a blue Pokémon with a round head and a tiny body. Phione's head is crowned by a flotation sac with a long, ribbon-like antenna. Its mouth is small, and its eyes are large with blue sclerasclerae and gray irises. Above its eyes are two blue, circular markings connected to the eyes by a thin black line. Its long, flipper-like arms have rounded tips. Phione has a red, oval gem on its chest and a single rudimentary foot spike.
 
Phione inflates the sac on its head to drift in the water and search for food. When the water grows warm, it will drift in packs with other members of its species. No matter how far it has drifted, it will always return to the place where it was born.

* Phione, {{p|Nidoran♂}}, {{p|Nidoran♀}}, {{p|Illumise}} and {{p|Volbeat}} are the only Pokémon that can be obtained by breeding a Pokémon they cannot evolve into.
* Phione has exactly the same base stats as {{p|Glalie}}.
* Phione is [[List of Pokémon that do not appear in any regional Pokédex|not found in any regional Pokédex]].
 
===Mythical status===
 
====Evidence for====
[[File:Phione Mythical 2011 Style Guide.png|thumb|250px|TheProof from the 2011 Style Guide]]
* [[Pokémon.com]]'s mailbag was [http://www.pokemon.com/#mailbag_02042008 once asked]{{dead link}} if Phione was Legendary. The official answer was initially no, but was quickly changed to yes; the whole mailbag section has since been taken down with the restructure of Pokémon.com.
* Phione is listed under the Mythical Pokémon section in the Pokémon 2011 Style Guide.
* Phione is listed as a Mythical Pokémon in the [[Pokémon Deluxe Essential Handbook]].
* Phione is banned from the [[2016 World Championships|2016 Video Game Championships]] due to being a Mythical Pokémon.
* Phione is listed as a Mythical Pokémon in a [http://www.nintendo.co.uk/News/2016/September/From-Mew-to-Magearna-discover-Mythical-Pokemon-in-our-feature-news-1138664.html September 2016 Nintendo feature story on Mythical Pokémon].
* In the [[Generation VII]] [[Global Trade System]], if the player chooses to exclude people seeking Mythical or Legendary Pokémon, people seeking Phione will not be displayed.
 
====Evidence against====
* [[Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver: Prima's Official Strategy Guide]] states that Phione is not Legendary (a term used at the time to describe both Legendary and Mythical Pokémon) due to it being able to be obtained by hatching Eggs.
* In [[Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs]], all Mythical Pokémon are referred to as "rare," but Phione is not. It is also found normally in the wild.
* All Mythical Pokémon are listed in [[Pokémon Daisuki Club]]'s [http://www.pokemon.jp/special/mystery/column/02.html#column09 Mystery File] feature website, but Phione is missing.
 
====Other====
* Phione can breed to produce another Phione; this is impossible with any other Legendary and Mythical Pokémon. However, Manaphy can also breed to produce Phione, and Manaphy is a confirmed Mythical Pokémon.
* Phione [[List of Pokémon that do not appear in any regional Pokédex|is not found in any regional Pokédex]], a trait that is otherwise exclusive to [[Generation IV]] Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
** Phione is also not needed to obtain the [[diploma]], a trait otherwise exclusive to Mythical Pokémon.
* Phione is banned from the {{Gdis|Battle Frontier|IV}}, the [[Battle Subway]], the [[Pokémon World Tournament]], the [[Battle Maison]], and the [[Battle Tree]], a rule which typically applies only to Mythical Pokémon and major Legendary[[Special Pokémon]]; the only non-Mythical Pokémon to have been event-only at one point, {{p|Zorua}} and {{p|Zoroark}}, were allowed in the Battle Subway, indicating Phione's battle facility ban may be due to it being Mythical.
** Phione is also banned from most online competitions and online battles.
* In the [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series]]:
* In [[Pokémon Rumble Blast]], Phione can only be unlocked once a certain number of customers have shopped at the Toy Shop, a trait otherwise exclusive to Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
* Phione was featured in Pokémon.com's [[n:Official Pokémon website announces Pokémon Power Bracket|2012 Pokémon Power Bracket]], a single-elimination tournament where all other Pokémon in the bracket were Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
* The [[Pokémon Ultra Sun & Pokémon Ultra Moon: The Official Alola Region Strategy Guide]] has two separate pieces of conflicting information about Phione's Mythical status within itself. It lists Phione as Mythical, but also states that Manaphy is the only Mythical Pokémon that can breed.
====Evidence against====
* Phione can breed to produce another Phione; this is impossible with any other Legendary and Mythical Pokémon. However, Manaphy can also breed to produce Phione, and Manaphy is a confirmed Mythical Pokémon.

===Origin===
{{bulbanews|On the Origin of Species: Manaphy and Phione}}
Phione is probably based on {{wp|sea angel}}s, specifically ''{{wp|clione}}''. ''Clione'' are remarkably popular in Japanese documentaries, especially in {{wp|Hokkaido}}, on which Sinnoh is based. (thisThis may also explain their appearance in [[Chocovine Town]]).
