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 resembles a crescent moon. It has red eyes on either side of its body and has an unusual beak-like structure in front of it. 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.

Gender differences

Lunatone is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Lunatone's powerful red eyes also fill the onlooker with fear. It 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 usually as a last resort. Its psychic powers can grow stronger under the light of the full moon. It is said that if Lunatone is exposed to moonlight for enough time its psychic powers will grow stronger than those of an Alakazam.

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. It is capable of reading the minds of other lifeforms, communicate with telepathy and hypnotize others if it feels threatened.

Habitat

Lunatone is a Pokémon that is said to have originally came from space. They originally came to the Pokémon world within meteorites and have since adapted to it quite nicely. As Lunatone have been found in Meteor Falls, it can be inferred that they prefer caves, though they are also found in other areas with extraterrestrial activity, like the Giant Chasm in Unova.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

This Pokémon has no need for food since it derives all of its energy from moonlight.

In the anime

Minor appearances

A Lunatone appeared in the opening of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

An engraving of a Lunatone appeared in Bucking the Treasure Trend!.

A Lunatone appeared in the opening scenes of Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

Trivia

  • Lunatone shares the same species name with its counterpart Solrock. They are both known as Meteorite Pokémon.
  • In the "Items" section of the DP Official Guide Book, Lunatone's name is misspelled as Lunastone.
  • Without its Ability, this Pokémon and its counterpart Solrock are the only Pokémon that have seven weaknesses and are not partially Grass-type or have a 4× weakness or 1/4 resistance to anything. Other Pokémon that have seven weaknesses include Celebi, Exeggcute, Exeggutor, Snover, and Abomasnow.
  • Despite Pokédex entries claiming that Lunatone strikes fear into its enemies when they look it in the eyes, it does not have the Ability Intimidate, nor can it learn Leer or Scary Face legitimately.

Origin

Lunatone is based on the moon, as well as a meteorite.

Name origin

Lunatone is a combination of luna (Latin for moon) and stone.
