Mesprit (Japanese: エムリット Emrit) is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon.

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

Along with Uxie and Azelf, Mesprit is a member of the lake guardians, the Sinnoh region's Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon trio. Mesprit is the bringer of emotion.

Biology

Mesprit is a small, gray, fairy-like Pokémon. It has two tails that each have a red jewel encrusted in them. These are, presumably, two of the jewels which comprise the Red Chain. Mesprit has a partially magenta face with four long, drooping appendages and another red gem encrusted in its forehead. Mesprit's spirit can leave its body without dying and return to the body at will. Legends say that a person that touches it will have their emotions completely drained away. It was shown in The Needs of the Three! and The Battle Finale of Legend! that it can teleport itself, as well as other Pokémon and humans. Though playful, it is a bit mischievous.

Major appearances

Mesprit (anime)

Dawn saw the projected soul of Mesprit near Lake Verity in Following A Maiden Voyage!.

A statue and silhouette of the same Mesprit appears in A Secret Sphere of Influence.

Mesprit itself appeared in The Needs of the Three!, where it, along with Uxie, came to Lake Valor after Azelf was captured. However, it was also captured by J and Team Galactic, but before it was captured, it used Future Sight with Uxie, destroying her ship later on. It was then controlled by the team to help fulfill its goal. In The Battle Finale of Legend!, after breaking from their control with the help of Dawn's Piplup and Cynthia's Garchomp, it helped in stopping Cyrus's plot to use Dialga and Palkia.

Mesprit also appeared in PK21 with Uxie and Azelf, serving Pikachu and his friends some apples.

Trophy Information

An Emotion Pokémon said to have taught humans emotions. Rumor is, if you touch Mesprit, you'll lose all emotions three days later. It sleeps at the base of Lake Verity, but once engaged in battle, it will rise from the water to fly around the Sinnoh region. Even if you see this Pokémon after your initial meeting, it'll try to flee battle, so catching it is quite a task.

Name origin

Mesprit may be a combination of me and esprit (French for spirit) or sprite.

Emrit may be a combination of 笑む emu (to smile) or emotion and esprit or sprite.
