Lunatone (Japanese: ルナトーン Lunatone) is a dual-type Rock/Psychic Pokémon.

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

Biology

Physiology

Lunatone is a Pokémon that originally came from space. They originally came to earth within meteorites and have since adapted to life on earth quite nicely. Being an inorganic Pokémon, it isn't preyed upon, nor does it need to prey on others, as it derives all its energy from moonlight. It uses telekinesis to float in mid-air and is capable of reading the thoughts of other lifeforms like most psychic types. It is even capable of brainwashing, but only does this when it feels threatened and is usually a last resort.

Gender differences

Lunatone is genderless.

Special abilities

Lunatone's ability, Levitate, allows it to avoid Template:Type2 moves such as Earthquake or Magnitude.

Behavior

Lunatone's power and health seems to be tied directly to the phases of the moon. When there is a full moon, Lunatone is at the peak of its strength. Presumably when there is a new moon, Lunatone is defenseless.

Habitat

Lunatone seems to prefer caves.

Diet

In the anime

Liza's Lunatone and Tate's Solrock

Lunatone first appeared in Crazy as a Lunatone. A pair of thieves calling themselves the PMC was after it due to wanting to get their hands on another outer-space Pokémon.

Liza and her Lunatone debuted in It's Still Rocket Roll to Me along Tate and her Solrock. Ash Ketchum's Gym battle against Tate and Liza and their Meteorite Pokémon was in the following episode.

Ruby Lunatone was discovered at a location where a meteorite fell. As a result, some people theorize that this Pokémon came from space. However, no one has been able to prove this theory so far.
Sapphire Lunatone becomes active around the time of the full moon. Instead of walking, it moves by floating in midair. The Pokémon's intimidating red eyes cause all those who see it to become transfixed with fear.
Emerald It becomes very active on the night of a full moon. This Pokémon was first discovered 40 years ago at the site of a meteor strike.
FireRed Its health ebbs and flows with the lunar cycle. It brims with power when exposed to the light of the full moon.
LeafGreen Its health ebbs and flows with the lunar cycle. It brims with power when exposed to the light of the full moon.

Trivia

  • Lunatone shares the same species name with its counterpart Solrock. They are both known as Meteorite Pokémon.
  • Lunatone's pupils were small slits in its R/S/E and FR/LG sprites, but in D/P, the pulils are slightly more open.
  • In the "Items" section of the DP Official Guide Book, Lunatone's name is misspelled as Lunastone.
  • Despite being a moon-like Pokémon, and what was shown in AG087, Lunatone cannot learn Moonlight.
  • Without its ability, this Pokémon and its counterpart Solrock are the only Pokémon that have seven weaknesses and are not partially Template:Type2 or doubly weak/resistant to anything. Other Pokémon that have seven weaknesses include Celebi, Exeggcute, Exeggutor, Snover and Abomasnow.
  • Lunatone and Solrock have some similarities to Unown and the Baltoy and Bronzor lines in that they are Template:Type2, have Levitate, and like caves and ruins.

Origin

Lunatone is based on a meteorite shaped like a crescent moon.

Name origin

Lunatone's name is a combination of the Latin luna, meaning moon, and stone. Its German name, Lunastein, comes from luna and Stein. Its French name, Seleroc, comes from Selene, a Greek lunar deity, and roc.
