Meditite (Japanese: アサナン Asanan) is a dual-type Fighting/Psychic Pokémon.

It evolves into Medicham starting at level 37.

Biology

Physiology

Meditite, in reference to its name, resembles a person meditating, sitting with knees bent and feet together with its hands resting on its knees. It also resembles a certain yoga position. Its lower body is blue, with white on the wrists, feet, and what seems to be pants, or possibly a diaper. Its head is also white, with an onion-like shape and large ears. Its eyes are large and seem to be focused.

Gender differences

A male's ears are higher up than a female's.

Special abilities

Its meditation gives it inner strength and spiritual power. It also is able to endure long periods without eating.

Behavior

They are very focused in their practices of meditation and yoga, and seem to be very spiritual Pokémon as well.

Meditite are native to the mountains of Sinnoh, but can also be found in mountanous parts of Hoenn. There have also been sightings inside temples in Johto.

Trivia

Origin

It resembles a primate of some sort. It appears to have been based on a practitioner of yoga and is meditating in almost all of the media it appears in. Its yoga position in its artwork and sprites is the Lotus, where one crosses his/her legs and places their feet on the opposing thighs. This position supposedly holds the mind completely steady for long periods of time and calms it, heightening the user's senses. Its hat somewhat resembles a turban and may also be the caps worn by many depictions of Hindu deities, such as Shiva, who are commonly seen meditating.

Name origin

Meditite's name is a corruption of meditate and possibly a corruption of tyke. It may also be a corruption of the word tight, as in the phrase tight focus. Asanan is most likely a corruption of asana, which in yoga refers to a pose or posture.

In other languages

Language Name Name Origin
German Meditie From meditieren.
