Finneon (Japanese: ケイコウオ Keikouo) is a Water-type Pokémon.



Finneon is a small fish Pokémon with a football-shaped body. The bottom half of its body is light-blue while the top half is black. A purple stripe runs across Finneon's horizontal length. Finneon has small blue pectoral fins, two black oval-shaped dorsal fins and purple eyes. Finneon's most notable feature is the pair of caudal fins that resemble a pair of blue butterfly wings with purple spots. It is these fins that have given this Pokémon the nickname "Beautifly Of The Sea."

Gender differences

The bottom lobes of a female's tail fin are bigger than a male's.

Special abilities

Finneon can use various Template:Type2 attacks such as Water Gun and Surf as well as Ice Beam and Blizzard. To coincide with the fact that Finneon looks as if it has a pair of butterfly wings, it can learn Silver Wind, Gust and U-turn.

Finneon's large tail fins are similar to the Freshwater butterflyfish, and they also resemble wings of actual butterflies. It also resembles a Neon tetra.

Name Origin

Finneon's name is a combination of "fin", and "neon".

The name Keikouo is a portmanteau of the words 蛍光 keikou "fluorescence", and 魚 uo, "fish".

Its French name, Ecayon, comes from écaille and rayon.
