Relicanth is a Pokémon that is heavily based on the {{wp|coelacanth}}. It is covered with hard, brown scales that are similar to craggy rocks. The composition of its scales and fatty body allow it to withstand the intense pressure of the {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Sea Pokémon|ocean depths}}. Its tan head has protruding cheekbones, which are smaller on a female. A triangular spike protrudes from the back of its head. Tan patches cover its body and there is a red spot located on both sides. It possesses two pairs of pectoral fins, which it uses to push itself along the sea bottom. Additionally, it has dorsal and pelvic fins near its tail. Its tail fin has a wavy outline. Relicanth is a filter feeder, and it feeds on microscopic organisms with its toothless mouth. It has remained unchanged for 100 million years, and stays as such because it is already a perfect life-form.
