Is it really necessary to say that Pressure is cancelled by Mold Breaker? Inker 22:09, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Not really... TTEchidna 05:34, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

"Ruler" of the seas?

Was there ever a line in generation II that said he was some sort of "King" "lord" of the seas? Or was that only in the second movie?(Fossilgojira 02:22, 12 June 2008 (UTC))


The biology section here is heavily based upon its anime-canon version, which is not unique, rather than what is known about the unique game-canon version. As such, it should be mentioned when it is referring to its presentation in the anime rather than the more universal qualities of the species. As it is, the article treats Lugia as if all Lugia are Lugia from the anime, rather than legendary individuals unique to the game it is from. Satosuke 02:27, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

I do notice that every Pokemon has a section devoted to "In the Anime," "In the Manga," but nothing has a section called "In the Games." Sheesh, it's not like the games have no plot! IIMarckus 02:46, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
Um, I assumed that everything outside of the "In the Animé," and "In the Manga," sections was game-canon. :\ - Lucadan (talkcontribs) 15:16, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

In My Opinion Lugia seems to have been inspired by Ziz in some fators. I dont see how Rayquaza could be and not Lugia.

Name Origin

It does not seem at all relevant to mention Luigi here. Does anyone agree?? I didn't wanna be a jerk and just delete it. Soon to be Mrs. Shirley 14:24, 18 October 2008

You’re right, that’s completely ridiculous. I removed the sentence. IIMarckus 20:11, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

SoulSilver speculation?

This article claims that "Lugia is the version mascot of Pokémon Silver and Pokémon SoulSilver, appearing on the boxart of both." Since no official boxart image has been released for these new games, I believe that it is pure speculation, although Lugia would most likely be on the cover in the future. The same claim is also made regarding to Ho-oh and Pokémon HeartGold - unsigned comment from Daninjango (talkcontribs)

Take a look at the logo. They are stylized versions of Ho-Oh and Lugia. Plus, they are confirmed to be remade versions of the original GS. It's pretty much confirmed. — THE TROM — 07:44, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Version Mascots have always been featured on boxart. Saying Lugia won't be on SoulSilver's boxart is like saying Team Galactic will triumph in the anime. We know that the twerps will somehow defeat Team Galactic and we know Lugia will be on the boxart for SoulSilver. Galladeon 02:09, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Moveset Trivia

Since Lugia's Level up moves list changed, doesn't that mean it's moveset is not the same in SoulSilver as it was in Gold and vice versa? Shouldn't that trivia be removed? I'd do it, but Lugia (and Ho-Oh)'s page can't be edited.--Purimpopoie 20:39, 18 September 2009 (UTC)


Since its moveset has changed almost entirely from DPt to HGSS, isn't better to put them in different boxes? The same goes for Ho-Oh. -- RikkiKitsune 05:06, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Halcyon Days

Lugia's ability to quell the ceaseless fighting between the legendary birds and control the weather to calm storms seems to be based on the 'Greek Legend of Alcyone' which resulted in the creation of an annual period of tranquility called the 'Halcyon Days'. --Arima 13:09, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Relation to Arceus?

In SoulSilver one of the Kimono Girls says: Tamao says, “That is Lugia… Since the ancient days, this town has called it the guardian deity of the sky." Does that mean it to be a God Pokemon relation to Arceus (same with Ho-Oh in HG). -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 19:42, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Wait, i though Ho-Oh was the Guardian of the Sky and Lugia was Sea. Morgil27 19:50, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Anime Appearance

Why is it stated that Ash and Misty act like they have never seen a Lugia before when encountering Silver and parent? In the English dub, at least, Ash specifically states that he had seen a Lugia in the Orange Isles before, which is in direct reference to the second movie.--Zandock 21:09, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
