Trivia

  • Phione is the only Pokémon that is obtainable only by breeding a legendary Pokémon.
  • Phione has the same base stats as Glalie.
  • Phione is taller and weighs more than its parent, Manaphy.
  • Phione can be bred not only from Manaphy, but also from a Phione.
  • There was much debate over whether or not Phione is a legendary Pokémon until recently, when Pokémon.com revealed that Phione is indeed legendary.[1] This makes it the legendary with the lowest base stats.
    • Oddly, the aforementioned letter on Pokémon.com initially answered that Phione was not a legendary Pokémon, but it was soon changed. This may indicate, however, that Pokémon.com's staff is unsure about Phione's legendary status, and thus makes their answer negligible, and Phione's legendary status still unknown.

Origin

Phione is possibly based on sea angels.

Name origin

Phione's name may be a corruption of Fiore, which is where Manaphy's egg is found, combined with "clione", the scientific name for sea angels, or "clone", because its sole purpose is to be a pseudo-Manaphy. It may be possible that Phione is a corruption of Pleione, a water nymph in Greek mythology. It's also likely that フィ comes from Template:P2. Additionally, its name may be a pun on the word "phony".
