It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Luvdisc is a fish-like Pokémon with a relatively flat body in the shape of a heart. Loving couples gave this Pokémon its name after spotting it in the ocean waters. It is primarily light pink, with pale lips and circular markings on its cheeks. During the spring, it forms groups that turn the ocean's surface bright pink. Luvdisc lives in warm seas, where it makes its nest in the branches of Corsola or coral reefs.

In the manga

Art of Wallace and his Luvdisc, Elizabeth

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Wallace has a Luvdisc nicknamed Elizabeth in Pokémon Adventures. She is usually shown out of her Poké Ball, floating along beside him. Wallace relies on her to solve problems, as she is shown doing such things as putting out a burning scarf and releasing a Lileep and Anorith to test Ruby's worth at Wallace's request. Also, the two seem to share a bond, as he rarely, if ever, has to specify what he wants her to do. Like all of Wallace's Pokémon in the manga, she is incredibly beautiful and was able to defeat all of Ruby's top Contest Pokémon, excluding Feefee, in an unofficial Contest in a matter of minutes.

Wallace's mentor, Juan, also uses a couple of Luvdisc, who assist him in mentally training Ruby and Sapphire.

Trivia

  • Due to their similar appearance and identical typing, it was speculated that Alomomola would evolve from Luvdisc upon Alomomola's introduction to the public.

Origin

Luvdisc is based on the discus fish and certain other species of fish that appear to kiss each other (such as the kissing gourami). It is shaped like a heart symbol. Its Shiny colors may be a reference to having a heart of gold, which signifies a person or being completely without malice, whose nature is loving or caring.

Name origin

Luvdisc and Lovecus is a combination of love and discus or disc (in reference to its thin, flat body).
