Rayquaza (Japanese: レックウザ Rayquaza) is a Dragon/Flying-type Pokémon. In Pokémon Emerald, it served to end the conflict between Groudon and Kyogre when Team Magma's leader Maxie and Team Aqua's leader Archie awakened them.

Rayquaza has the Ability Air Lock, which blocks all effects of weather conditions on the field when it is in battle.

Rayquaza is the version mascot of Pokémon Emerald, appearing on the boxart.

Biology

Physiology

Rayquaza is large, green serpentine creature with rudder-like wings. Yellow rings run across the length of Rayquaza's body and an additional yellow ring in on top of its head. Raquaza has arms with three-fingered hands. Raquaza has long, flat "horns" on its head and two smaller horns below them. Its eyes and markings resemble those of both Groudon and Kyogre.

Gender differences

Rayquaza is genderless.

Special abilities

Rayquaza is capable of using various elemental attacks. It is also unable to be affected by weather conditions. Since Rayquaza is a "true" Dragon-type Pokémon, it can know Draco Meteor.

Behavior

Habitat

Rayquaza lives way up in the ozone layer.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Rayquaza appears in Destiny Deoxys. It fights against Deoxys because it is seen as invading its territory. It also has a cameo in the opening to the 9th Pokémon movie and is captured by Team Rocket.

Game data

NPC appearances

  • Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire: Rayquaza is the focus of the third and final Bonus Field. It can only be challenged after capturing Groudon or Kyogre and will then join the circuit of bonus fields. Rayquaza will bounce along from left to right, allowing the ball to roll under it if it is up. It will sometimes use Thunder to paralyze the ball if it is not moving fast enough, though it does stay still while it is unleashing the attack. Rayquaza will also sometimes use Extremespeed to create two tornados that cause the ball to fly up into the air for several seconds if contact is made. Rayquaza must be hit 15 times in three minutes to win. After beating the round twice, Rayquaza will be captured.
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rayquaza acts as final boss, living on the Sky Tower. After the credits roll the player can re-battle Rayquaza to recruit it.
  • Pokémon Ranger: Rayquaza can be caught in a bonus mission after the credits.
