Ledian (Japanese: レディアン Redian) is a dual-type Bug/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Ledyba starting at level 18.

Biology

Physiology

Ledian resembles a large, mostly red ladybug. It has two black antennae, and a black spot in the center of its forehead. Its two eyes are large, blue and slanted, reminiscent of the stereotypical "alien." Its four arms are like those of its juvenile form Ledyba: black stalks with cartoonish white fists at the end. Its two legs are similar to its arms, but end with large red feet.

Gender differences

A female has shorter antennae.

Special abilities

Behavior

Habitat

Because they need starlight to use as energy, Ledian are likely to inhabit places where the night skies are usually clear and the air is clean. They may sleep in forests when it is daytime.
