Trivia

  • Virizion has the highest Special Defense of all Grass- and Fighting-type Pokémon.
  • Virizion is the only member of the Swords of Justice that is not weak to the types of any of the other members. Furthermore, it is the only one that has a type advantage over all of the other members.

Origin

Virizion appears to be based on the character of Aramis from the novel The Three Musketeers. Like Aramis, it is the best at swordplay. Aramis in the novels was also the most feminine, vain, and romantic, qualities that Virizion possesses relative to its comrades. Despite being based on a male character, it speaks with a distinctly female voice in the 15th movie. It physically resembles antelopes, such as the gerenuk or other species of gazelle. It may also be based on female deer. Like its comrades, its nose resemble that of a sheep.

Name origin

Virizion may be derived from viridian (a bluish-green color), or simply viridis (Latin for green), and possibly champion.
