Luxray (Japanese: レントラー Rentorar) is an Electric-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Luxio starting at level 30. It is the final form of Shinx.

Biology

Luxray is a quadruped Pokémon resembling a fully-grown lion. While its face, hind legs, torso, and the back of its front legs are blue, much of its body is covered with shaggy, black fur. The fur is longer around the shoulders and the base of the tail, and forms a mane on its head. The mane is larger on the male than on the female. It has yellow eyes with red sclera, a blunt muzzle, and rounded ears with yellow insides. There are three yellow, half rings on the back of each foreleg. Its long, thin tail is tipped with a yellow four-pointed star. Luxray has powerful eyesight that is capable of seeing through most objects and walls, like x-ray vision. It uses this ability for hunting and keeping track of its offspring.

Major appearances

Luxray first appeared in The Rise of Darkrai. During Alice's flashback, Alicia was running up a hill to the garden. She saw Luxray fire a Hyper Beam upon Darkrai, but Darkrai retaliated with a Dark Void, trapping Luxray into a nightmare. However, Alice played Oración, allowing it and the other affected Pokémon to sleep peacefully.

Another Luxray appeared in The Fleeing Tower of Sunyshore! under the ownership of Volkner. It also appeared in The Eighth Wonder of the Sinnoh World! where it was used in the Gym battle against Ash.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Rayler

In Pokémon Adventures, Mars used her Luxray to steal energy from Valley Windworks. In the graphic novel releases, however, Electivire assumes this role.

Later, when the trio are traveling through Mt. Coronet, a Luxray that evolved from a Luxio they had helped earlier in their journey saved Pearl and Platinum after they were trapped by a rock slide. This same Luxray later appeared to Pearl as he was traveling to Lake Valor, and after defeating the Houndoom that was trying to burn them alive, joined him as his third Pokémon, now named Rayler.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Hareta's Luxio evolved into Luxray during his Pokémon League battle with Koya.

Trivia

  •  Luxray is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 523.

Origin

Luxray is based on an adult male lynx or lion, or possibly the constellation Lynx or Leo, due to the fact that it resembles the animals and bears a star shape on the end of its tail. In addition, in European mythology, the lynx was said to have the supernatural power to see through solid objects, much like Luxray.

Name origin

Luxray is derived from lux (a measure of brightness) and x-ray (referring to its x-ray vision).

Rentorar may be a combination of レントゲン rentogen (x-ray) and 虎 tora (tiger).
