Swanna (Japanese: スワンナ Swanna) is a dual-type Water/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Ducklett starting at level 35.

Biology

Physiology

Swanna is a swan-like Pokémon with primarily white plumage. Its beak is long and yellow, topped with a black cere, with several white-colored feathery features adorning its head. The more rounded of the features are to the sides of its head, and the more pointed feature is atop. As distinctive among swans, Swanna possesses a long, curving neck. Two light-blue feathery features, like those on the sides of Swanna's head, are present on Swanna's underside, and Swanna's large wings are positioned in a way unconventional for birds. Swanna's legs are small, and its webbed feet dark in coloration.

Gender differences

Trivia

  • Swanna was first seen in a video for the Pokémon Musicals, again when its art leaked on Yahoo's Pokémon website, and finally in the September issue of CoroCoro.
  • Swanna and its pre-evolution Ducklett learn only Water and Flying-type moves by level-up.
  • Despite its White Pokédex entry stating "Its attacks with its bill are severe. It bends its long neck and unleashes successive jabs.", Swanna cannot learn any moves involving a beak or bill through level-up.

Origin

Swanna is based on a swan. Its design seems to draw inspiration from the outfit worn by the main character of the Swan Lake ballet, Odette.

Name Origin

Swanna, from both the English and Japanese names, comes from the water fowl, swan. Considering its origin, the name may also be derived from ballerina.

In other languages

Language Name Name Origin
German Swaroness From swan and baroness.
French Lakmécygne From Lakmé, cygne, and Lac des Cygnes.
Korean 스완나 Seuwanna Same as the Japanese name.
Chinese (Mandarin) 首席天鵝 / 首席天鹅 Shǒuxítiāné From 首席 shǒuxí and 天鵝 tiāné.
