Lugia (Japanese: ルギア Lugia) is a legendary Psychic/Flying-type Pokémon. It is often considered to be closely related to Ho-oh, even sometimes as its polar opposite, represented by silver as Ho-oh is represented by gold, and "guardian of the seas" as Ho-oh is "guardian of the skies".

In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, it appears in the deepest cavern of the Whirl Islands, under the ocean floor, when the games' hero/heroine enters with the item Silver Wing, one of Lugia's feathers. However, the means of obtaining the Silver Wing differ between the three versions.

In Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, and Pokémon Emerald, Lugia is encountered at Navel Rock, a barren rock in the center of the Sevii Islands, along with Ho-oh. To reach Navel Rock via a Seagallop Ferry, one must have the Template:I, a promotional item transferred to the game via special events such as the annual Pokémon Rocks America tours.

In Pokémon XD, Shadow Lugia, codenamed XD001, is a main part of the storyline, and Cipher's ultimate Shadow Pokémon. Near the end of the game's main story, the player will be able to snag the Shadow Lugia and eventually purify it-- given the battle against Greevil is won.

Lugia comes with the Ability Pressure, which causes the foe to use two PP instead of one each time it uses a move against Lugia. This move is rendered incapable with Ability Mold Breaker.

Lugia's signature move is Aeroblast, and is the only Pokémon that can learn it.

Lugia is the version mascot of Pokémon Silver, appearing on the boxart.

Biology

Physiology

Lugia is a large, silver-white bird/plesiosaur/draconic creature that has a dark blue underside, two blue spikes on its tail, three pairs of blue plates on its back, two blue fins on its face and wings that resemble like arms with five-fingered hands. Lugia is depicted as the ruler over the the Kanto Legendary Bird Trio. Due to a somewhat similar appearance, it may be related to Latios and Latias.

Gender differences

Lugia is genderless.

Special abilities

Lugia is so powerful that if it even lightly flutters its wings, it creates a non-stop, 40-day-long storm with winds that can blow down houses. In fact, Lugia can control several different types of elements, though it cannot control Fire.

Lugia is the only Pokémon so far that can learn Aeroblast.

Behavior

Habitat

Lugia lives deep in the ocean, not because it is a natural sea-dweller, but because it fears that it could accidentaly cause untold devestation.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Three Lugia have appeared in the anime: a large Lugia from the second movie near Shamouti Island in the Orange Islands, and a mother Lugia and its child Lugia (nicknamed Silver by Oliver) near Silver Rock Isle in the Whirl Islands. In both cases a human has attempted to capture them: Lawrence III attempted to capture the large Lugia for himself, inadvertently threatening the world's balance in the process, and Dr. Namba attempted to capture both the mother Lugia and Silver for Giovanni. Both were foiled by Ash and his friends.

In the manga

The Elite Four tried to exterminate humans using a Lugia in the Yellow Saga. The Mask of Ice caught a Lugia, but subsequently released it.

In the TCG

In the TFG

One Lugia figure has been released.

Other appearances

Super Smash Brothers Melee

When released from a Poké Ball, Lugia will fly up and return in the background where it unleashes a powerful Aeroblast on the stage.

Trophy information

The waters of the Whirl Islands are home to this legendary Pokémon, whom very few have seen. Lugia live quietly in the deepest ocean trenches for one very good reason: its combined aerial and psychic powers are so strong as to be extremely dangerous. The special moves of this gargantuan creature include the destructive wind assault known as Aeroblast.
