Suicune (Japanese: スイクン Suikun) is a Legendary Water-type Pokémon. First appearing in the Generation II games, it is said to be the embodiment of the North Wind, one of the three Legendary Beasts created by Ho-oh after the burning of Ecruteak Tower.

Suicune is pursued, both in the anime and Pokémon Crystal, by Eusine.

Suicune comes with the Ability Pressure, which causes the foe to use two PP instead of one each time it uses a move.

Suicune does not evolve, and no Pokémon evolves into it.

Suicune is the version mascot of Pokémon Crystal, appearing on the boxart.

Biology

Physiology

Suicune is a blue cheetah-like creature with white rhombus-shaped spots and a white under-side. Suicune has two white streamer-like tails and a purple cape that resembles a rushing river. Suicune has a hexagon-shaped crest on its fore-head.

Gender differences

Suicune is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Suicune has the power to purify dirty water and can walk across water. Northern winds always seems to blow where ever it shows up.

Behavior

Habitat

Since Suicune is a member of the Legendary Beast Trio, Suicune races around the land. Some say it searches for a pure reservoir.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Its first appearance is in the episode Don't Touch that 'Dile when Ash, Misty, and Brock spot Suicune in the middle of lake. When it spots the group, it runs off.

The first significant and lengthy appearance of Suicune is in the Pokémon 4Ever movie. In the course of the movie, it demonstrated its ability to purify water, as well as doing battle with Dark Celebi.

Another significant appearance is in the episode For Ho-oh the Bells Toll, where it appeared in Ecruteak City after one of the Crystal Bells from the Tin Tower was destroyed.

In the manga

Pokémon Special

Suicune was awakened by Yellow along with its two counterparts, and the three raced around Kanto and Johto looking for trainers to help them defeat the Mask of Ice to free Ho-oh. Suicune, in particular, personally challenges nearly every single Gym Leader in the two regions. During its travels, it encounters both Eusine and Crystal, both of which become obsessed with capturing it. Crystal acquires the Crystal Bell, but is still unable to capture Suicune. She has her confidence shattered by this and has to retreat back to her old training grounds to regain her confidence. Suicune later choses Misty as its parter, but then pairs up with Crystal anyway after Misty becomes injured.

Suicune can communicate with Raikou and Entei telepathically.

In the TCG

Other appearances

Super Smash Brothers Melee

When released from a Poké Ball, Suicune unleashes a Blizzard of icy wind that causes high levels of damage.
