Helioptile (Japanese: エリキテル Erikiteru) is a dual-type Electric/Normal Pokémon.

It evolves into Heliolisk when exposed to a Sun Stone.

Biology

Helioptile is a small, lizard-like Pokémon. It has a tapering tail, short legs, and small feet with three pointed toes on each foot. Its body is pale yellow, while its feet and the tip of its tail are black. The top of its head is black as well with a small triangular yellow patch between the eyes. It has two long, black pointed frills with yellow tips hanging from the sides of its head, which can stiffen and unfold. These frills have cells which generate electricity when exposed to sunlight. It has large eyes with blue irises and white pupils. Helioptile can generate its own energy from sunlight, so it can thrive without food; it will still eat if needed. It lives in deserts.

Major appearances

Helioptile made its debut in The Journalist from Another Region!, under the ownership of Alexa. It is Alexa's companion Pokémon, often climbing on her back.

In The Cave of Trials!, a Trainer in Geosenge Town purchased a Sun Stone to evolve his Helioptile into a Heliolisk. This prompted Clemont to reveal that he had used a Sun Stone to evolve his own Heliolisk that appeared in Clemont's Got a Secret!

Minor appearances

A Helioptile appeared in Lumiose City Pursuit!, Mega-Mega Meowth Madness!, Day Three Blockbusters! and in a flashback in Mega Evolution Special I at Professor Sycamore's lab.

A photo of Helioptile appeared in Summer of Discovery!.

A Trainer's Helioptile appeared in a picture in Battling Into the Hall of Fame!.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Helioptile appears as a trophy.

Trophy information

A very timid Pokémon that makes its home in arid deserts. The necktie-like frills on either side of its head can be stretched out to absorb sunlight, which Helioptile then uses to generate electricity. Thanks to this energy source, it can even survive without food. If your phone runs out of battery in the desert, why not ask this guy for help?

Trivia

Origin

Helioptile is probably based on Frill-necked lizards, though its frills also resemble those found on Phrynocephalus mystaceus. It may also be based on the spotted salamander, a salamander that can photosynthesize. Its ability to learn Surf may be a reference to the common basilisk, a reptile capable of running on water for short distances.

Name origin

Helioptile is a combination of ἥλιος helios (Ancient Greek for sun), heliophile (organism attracted to large amounts of sunlight), and reptile.

Erikiteru may be a combination of elekiter, エリマキトカゲ erimaki tokage (frill-necked lizard), and 照る teru (to shine).
