Hydreigon (Japanese: サザンドラ Sazandora) is a dual-type Dark/Dragon pseudo-legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Zweilous starting at level 64. It is the final form of Deino.

Biology

Physiology

Hydreigon is a three-headed, dragon-like Pokémon. Hydreigon has six black wings on its back, similar to those of Giratina's Origin Forme's tentacles. On Hydreigon's neck is a fuschia-colored flower-like collar which opens to its head. The main head is a dark blue and its eyes are black with fuchsia pupils. Its hands, also black, harbor a head in each one; these heads are also blue with black eyes. There are small collars on the inside of Hydreigon's hands. On its abdomen are two overall-like fuschia stripes. Its feet appear atrophied, having no claws or defined soles and two or three small toes. Its tail also sports a fuschia stripe with a black tuft on the end of it.

Gender differences

None.

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Hydreigon and its evolutionary relatives.
  • Of all the Pokémon that evolve by level alone, Hydreigon evolves from its pre-evolution later than any other Pokémon, at level 64.
  • Hydreigon has the highest Special Attack of all non-legendary Template:Type2 Pokémon.
  • Hydreigon is the only pseudo-legendary Pokémon to not have Attack as its highest stat.
    • Hydreigon is also the only pseudo-legendary Pokémon with more than one immunity (excluding Metagross using Magnet Rise).
  • Hydreigon's evolutionary family, along with Salamence's, are the only Pokémon exclusively in the Dragon Egg Group.
  • Hydreigon is the only pseudo-legendary Pokémon to have never been used by a Champion.
    • It is, however, used by Ghetsis, the Trainer who is battled at the end of the Pokémon League during the first Hall of Fame entry.
  • Hydreigon is the only pseudo-legendary Pokémon with only one ability available.
  • Hydreigon can learn moves belonging to 16 of the 17 elemental types; it cannot learn any Template:Type2 moves.
  • Originally, according to interviews with Sugimori in Nintendo Dream, Hydreigon and it's pre-evolutions were intended to be cybernetic dragons incorporating aspects of tanks within their bodies before being redesigned around the theme of Yamata no Orochi.

Origin

Hydreigon is based on Yamata no Orochi. It may also incorporate elements of hydras or Slavic dragons.

Name origin

Hydreigon seems to be a combination of hydra, drei, meaning three in German, and dragon. Both the sa and zan in Sazandora seem to come from 三 sa/san, or three, a reference to its three heads. The dora in its name comes from either dragon or hydra, a possible reference to the multi-headed hydra of Greek lore.
