Kyogre (Japanese: カイオーガ Kyogre) is a Template:Type2 legendary Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Kyogre possesses the ability to expand the oceans. In ancient times it came in conflict with Groudon, a Pokémon with the ability to expand continents.

In Pokémon Sapphire and Emerald, Kyogre is sought after by Team Aqua as part of their plot to create more habitats for aquatic Pokémon by raising the sea level.

Kyogre is the version mascot of Pokémon Sapphire, appearing on the boxart.

Biology

Physiology

It has big fins or "wings", each ending with four square-shaped "claws." It has a deep blue body with a white chin area with two spikes. Above each eye are two spots. It has markings on its wings which barely resemble the letter A. It also has two small fins on its back with two stripes running horizontally below the fins. The tail seems tattered with four trails, the inner smaller than the outer. It also has a mouth full of rarely seen sharp triangular teeth.

Gender differences

Kyogre is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Kyogre has the power to summon heavy rain that remains even after the Pokémon has left the area. It also can control the seas, widening the oceans with massive tidal waves. It is thought to be the creator of the seas in the Pokémon world. Kyogre is one of the few Pokémon capable of learning Water Spout

Behavior

Not much is known about the behavior of Kyogre, due to the fact that it is rarely seen underwater. It appears to be calm and peaceful, but when angered, such as its encounter with Groudon, it may attack relentlessly, seen in its battle with Groudon in Sootopolis City.

Habitat

Kyogre normally sleeps deep beneath the sea in the Seafloor Cavern.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Being a dolphin-like Pokémon, it is likely that Kyogre actively hunts for its food.

In the anime

Kyogre's first appearance was in Gaining Groudon. Team Magma had captured Kyogre but didn't have the correct orb to control it. Team Magma planned to make a trade with Team Aqua, who have captured Groudon. The trade was about to be made when Archie decided to use Kyogre to destroy everyone, including his fellow henchmen.

The battle between Kyogre and Groudon occurred during the following episode, The Scuffle of Legends.

Kyogre appeared in the movie Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea. It had appeared along with countless other Water Pokémon when Ash replaced all of the Sea Crown's crystals. However, when The Phantom attempted to make all the Water-types panic using supersonic waves from his ship, Kyogre too was part of the ensuing commotion. Manaphy calmed them down using Heart Swap to rid the Pokémon of their confusion, and some Wailord broke open The Phantom's ship, followed by some Chinchou swimming into the opening and short-circuiting the ship. Kyogre then used Hyper Beam on the ship, destroying it.

Kyogre makes a cameo in the introduction of The Rise of Darkrai and Giratina and the Sky Warrior.

In the manga

Kyogre's first appearance was in VS. Kyogre & Groudon I. It was awakened by Team Aqua so the waters will be expanded. Wattson, Flannery, and Winona tried to stop it but failed due to Team Aqua's interference. Later on, Guile Hideout made Jirachi create a Kyogre monster.

In the TCG

Main article: Kyogre (TCG)

In the TFG

One Kyogre figure has been released.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

After being released from a Poké Ball, Kyogre opens its mouth and squirts out a stream of water. The water is non-damaging, but causes characters to be knocked back with extreme force. Touching Kyogre's body will do damage. Kyogre also appears as a trophy.

Trivia

Marina's Kyogre Costume

Origin

Kyogre is most likely based on the Hebrew legends of Leviathan, the unconquerable primal master of the sea. Its counterparts were Behemoth and Ziz. Just as Kyogre is in conflict with Groudon, it was said that at the end of time Leviathan and Behemoth would start a battle that would kill them both. Kyogre's appearance also draws inspiration from a Orca. Kyogre could also be based on Hayo and Lakandanum, the gods of the sea of the Philippine Mythology.

Name origin

Kyogre's name can be broken up into 海 kai, ocean, and orca, a species of dolphin. Its name is not likely to have been derived directly from ogre, which are mythological land beasts. It is worth noting that without the last syllable, Kyogre spells out 海王 kaiō, which means King of the Sea. It is also worth noting that 海王 are the first two characters in 海王星 Kaiōsei, Neptune.
