Biology

Victini and the macarons

Victini is a small, rabbit-like Pokémon with large, pointed ears which form the letter V. It has large, blue eyes and a round, cream-colored head, which is comparatively large compared to its small, cream body, while the tops of its ears, crest, and extremities are all orange. Its bulbous arms and legs are rounded to make a sort of "cuff" before ending with small, three-fingered hands and two-toed feet. It has two pointed teeth that can be seen on its upper jaw. It also has two cream winglike tails, which allows it to fly. Though timid, it is a caring Pokémon; it will fight if its friends are in danger.

Victini is said to bring victory to the Trainer that befriends it. It produces an infinite amount of energy within itself and can share it with others by touch. It can also become invisible. As shown in White—Victini and Zekrom and Black—Victini and Reshiram, it can send visions to people. It has been shown to enjoy eating macarons, although it sometimes chokes on them. In the same movie, it has also been seen near an Oran Berry bush. Victini is the only known Pokémon that can learn Searing Shot.

Major appearances

Victini (M14)

Victini debuted in White—Victini and Zekrom and Black—Victini and Reshiram. It lived in Eindoak Town, where it was a friend of the King of the People of the Vale one thousand years prior to the movies. In the present day, it was targeted by Damon in his plan to fly the Sword of the Vale back to the Kingdom of the Vale and resurrect his peoples' glory.

Other

In Pikachu, What's This Key?, Pikachu and his friends visited a Victini courtesy of Klefki's keys. It rescued Pikachu and brought him back to safety as he was falling into a chasm.

In the movie adaptations

Main article: Victini (M14)

Victini is a major character in White—Victini and Zekrom. Likewise, it appears in the manga adaptation of the film by Momota Inoue that was serialized in CoroCoro.

In the Pocket Monsters BW manga

A Victini appeared in PMBW13.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In At Liberty on Liberty Garden, Victini was seen on Liberty Garden, where Team Plasma attempted to catch it, but were thwarted by Black. Two years later in PS547, Victini returned the favor by helping Blake defeat Colress.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Victini appears as a Poké Ball Pokémon, after playing 100-Man Smash at least once. It uses Victory Star, which causes fighters (and teammates, if any) who send it out to gain immunity to knockback and have their attack power boosted.

Trophy information

NA: This Psychic/Fire-type Pokémon shares the limitless energy it creates with others. In Smash Bros., Victini uses Victory Star to power up the fighter that brought it into battle. The fighter won't flinch from damage and will launch foes easier, as well as glow with power. They aren't invincible, though...

PAL: Victini can create an endless supply of energy and share it with others. Its Victory Star move makes the other fighter who summoned it glow with power from head to toe. As long as they're glowing, their launch ability will shoot up and they'll never flinch. That said, they're not invincible - Victini isn't a miracle-worker.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Victini returns as a Pokémon summoned from the Poké Ball, where it gives the summoner their Final Smash with Victory Star. It also appears as a Spirit.

In the TCG

Trivia

Victini in Pokémon Battle Chess

Origin

Victini's appearance seems to be based on うさぎリンゴ usagi-ringo, a method of cutting apple slices to make them look similar to rabbits. Conceptually, it might draw inspiration from Nike, the Greek, winged goddess of victory; or Victoria, the Roman equivalent of Nike. Its tail wings may be a reference to Nike's wings.

Its theme of "V" could be linked to it being somewhat of the fifth Generation's mascot, "V" being the Roman numeral for 5. "V" could also be a reference to the V sign.

Name origin

Victini may be a combination of victory and destiny, teeny, or tiny.
