Where did all the moves from before lv. 70 come from? And for Groudon and Kyogre, where did the ones before level 45 come from? Are they just speculation?--ObsessedMinunFan 02:06, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

It's what the move tutor says it learns at those levels, I believe. --Pie 02:53, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
I just got Rayguaza, Groudon, and Kyogre on Emerald yesterday, and I'm looking at the Move Tutor thing right now. It doesn't list the levels anywhere. Is the person who posted them still active here?--ObsessedMinunFan 06:44, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
I believe people got that info by using a GameShark to get a very low level wild Rayquaza. That is the best way to get to know from what level the Pokémon learns the moves. TheBlazikenMaster 12:28, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

how are the status calculated

hi, i would like to ask, how are the status graphic calculated, i mean i was trying to capt a pattern, but I just could not, i mean max speed for groudon and Kyogre at lv.100 is 306 and it is represented as a 90 in the graphic. same for rayquaza, max attack an sp.attack is 438 at lv.100 and the graphic shows 150 for both stats. so, how can i calculate the equivalent for the other pokemon? Please help me with this... :S

See Stats#Formula. --Raijinili 02:26, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Rock Smash

It doesn't learn Rock Smash in Generation 4? --Raijinili 02:26, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

It does. Someone must've left it out. TTEchidna 01:06, 4 August 2007 (UTC)


Well i was looking at the other 2 super-ancients and i thought, the markings on those 2 are, and this is proven in the anime, made by the orbs. and Rayquaza has similar markings, so does he have an, yet to be revealed, orb? LordKaien 15:03, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

I don't think his orb will be revealed any time soon. Because in the anime Ash travels to another region every 5 or so seasons. TheBlazikenMaster 15:20, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
We've gone past the third generation now so I would be surprised to see any further development on the weather trio. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 15:22, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Kyogre was in the Manaphy movie, so that makes me think that they won't be completely ignored.LordKaien 15:26, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
That was still Generation III. Of course they won't be ignored (see the Mismagius filler) but new information is being relegated to the Gen IV legends right now. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 15:30, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Sure there is often new information revealed on older Pokémon (for example, the episodes where Misty returned new information about Togepi/Togetic became revealed) but new information regarding Legends is pretty rare, especially something big like orb. TheBlazikenMaster 16:57, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Well, it would make a great part of a movie. LordKaien 14:48, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

It makes me wonder if there will be a movie to feature all the Legendaries battling it out to see who is the supreme Legendary. I would definately see that. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 01:50, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

I don't think that would be possible, when the amount of Pokémon are growing so are legendaries. TheBlazikenMaster 10:02, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
True, the battle may just end up destroying everything anyway. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 14:24, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
It would be awesome though. LordKaien 21:54, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

To get back to the topic about the markings: Maybe Rayquaza's markings are also created by the orbs? Rayquaza is part of the Weather Trio, so couldn't the orbs affect Rayquaza as well? Diachronos 16:56, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

I don't think so; Groudon raised lands and Kyogre raised seas, what did rayquaza do? DragonTamer 07:50, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Although it wasn't stated in the show or games, Rayquaza could have done something with the ozone/atmosphere like raising oxygen levels to support more life.--いぬみみ 21:50, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Rayquaza kept them from fighting, so they could raise the land & sea... duh :P

Sprite Changes?

Okay this might be nothing, but in the 3rd gen sprites inside it's mouth Rayquaza got Blue Color, while in the DP sprites inside it's like black or dark pink?

I think its worth noting.ShinyPiKa 22:15, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
So do I, add it to the trivia section if you'd like. TheBlazikenMaster 22:27, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Forgot to check back and see this discussion. In the first edit of this topic I didn't know I had to write my name, date and time. Sorry :/. Fidani16 16:12, 23 October 2008.
No need to apologize for something that happened over a month ago. TheBlazikenMaster 14:20, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Origin, Name Origin

I don't see the resemblance of the Ziz in Rayquaza. I also don't see the resemblances of the Behemoth and the Leviathan in Groudon and Kyogre, respectively. Do we know where this information came from?? Can it be cited from anywhere?? I'm just wondering where that information came from, because it does not seem very believable to me. And also, I don't understand how Rayquaza's name can be derived from "ray"... Soon to be Mrs. Shirley 14:13, 18 October 2008

It's not physical resemblance to Behemoth/Leviathan/Ziz, it's their thematic similarities. Both groups are huge, primordial monsters of land, sea, and sky.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 14:21, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Wait, how do you know what Ziz looks like? --Raijinili 06:01, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
It's a giant bird big enough to block out the sun. Good enough, really.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 13:54, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Guardian of the Skies

I think its appropriate to put "Guardian of the Skies" in there DragonTamer 12:13, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Who told you that? hfc2X 16:53, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
I agree with Hfc2x...but now that i think about it, didn't Rayquaza try to keep deoxys from entering the atmosphere in the 7th movie? And in mystery dungeon red and blue, Rayquaza also stopped the meteor that was heading straight for the planet. --いぬみみ 19:01, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Then it's better to explain why it is the "Guardian of Skies". If it's supported by official sources, then I will not opose. hfc2X 02:55, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Can't you do that? I don't know how to say it. DragonTamer 05:14, 2 November 2008 (UTC)


is it me or is rayquaza cathable a second time i see it again when i beat it .- unsigned comment from Slappy (talkcontribs)

It's you.--The Kkllnnator カメックス 22:07, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
That happened in my pearl game. i battled and caught Palkia the first time i saw it. and later after i beat the rest of the game plot, i went back up to spear pillar and saw another palkia and i caught it. i don't know how that happened. --いぬみみ 22:15, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Either a) You are lying,
b) it was a glitch, or,
c) the game was hacked and/or fake.--The Kkllnnator カメックス 22:18, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Flying Type

I've noticed other pokemon's trivia sections, such as Heatran, include the fact that they have the highest of an individual stat for a specific type. Rayquaza has the highest attack and special attack of all flying types, but I was wondering whether this was worth noting, due to the fact that flying is and has always been a secondary type.

The Japanese Name

Rekkūza? That doesn't sound similar enough to "Rayquaza." At least, that's what I believe. If it was "Rekkueza," then it would be similar, but... SharKing Productions 04:15, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Ask GameFreak. It's their choice, really.—Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 06:23, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
If it would be "Rekkueza," then its Japanese name would be レックェザ, right? Hmm... Palkia38 12:02, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm glad someone else but me caught this. Yeah, I was about to ask about this myself. What do the official Japanese names say?

The trivia now say "座 za, from universe". As far as I know 座 has nothing to do with the universe, except that you can find it at the end of constellation names. I even checked some dictionaries to be sure. 座, especially when pronounced "za", means "the place where one sits" i.e. "seat" or "location". So 烈空座 (Rekkūza) could mean something like "one that sits in the ferocious heavens". I'll go ahead and change the article. Feel free to revert, but then please discuss why. --Spenvdm 14:55, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Why is this and every other pokemon article protected?

Read message from the editor on the main page and the latest story on Bulbanews. --ケンジガール 21:39, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Main picture

Why aren't we using its Emerald artwork anymore? Taromon 20:08, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Hmm? The current picture is Ken Sugimori's artwork for R/S/E. Unless you're talking about a different "main" picture? -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 01:14, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Ken Sugimori released new artwork for Rayquaza when Emerald was released (like he did for the Hoenn starters), I'm sure it used to be used in the article. The current picture is fine though. Taromon 18:57, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Trivia. Three fingers.

Japanese Dragons is three fingers. Sawamular101 20:58, 9 July 2010 (UTC)


It also could resemble Quetzocoatl, because it's markings remind me of Kecleon, which looks Aztec. I nammed mine Shenron, after the Eternal Dragon in Dragonball Z... Uh, I mean Kai... -_-*Tesseract 09:19, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
