Basculegion (Japanese: イダイトウ Idaitou) is a dual-type Water/Ghost Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

In the Hisui region, it evolves from Basculin.

Biology

Basculegion is a large, green fish-like Pokémon. It has fierce, red eyes and a jagged mouth with pointed teeth. Its spine is aligned with a dark grey line, with a red line along it and extending around its gills. It has a pair of white pectoral fins, a three-spiked dorsal fin, and a two-spiked ventral fin. It has red spots along its torso and plumes of red smoke around its tail. Additional smoke covers its face in a manner resembling barbels.

Basculegion's evolution is said to be achieved by Basculin being possessed by the deceased souls of other Basculin in its school who did not survive the harsh journey swimming upstream. When it senses danger, Basculegion will turn hostile and attack along with its souls until the enemy is defeated. The souls within Basculegion are said to have a will of their own, and provide Basculegion with the power needed to swim on without tiring.[1]

Trivia

Origin

Its appearance and the background of the deceased souls of Basculin is reminiscent of sockeye salmon as they are found in the parts of the northern Pacific Ocean and rivers discharging into it, including the northern Hokkaidō Island in Japan, and many of them don't survive when they migrate upstream. As Basculegion is a conglomerate of many restless spirits, it may also be inspired by Gashadokuro. Basculegion may also be based on a largemouth bass.

Name origin

Basculegion may be a portmanteau of Basculin and legion or Legion, a Biblical demon or group of demons.

Idaitou may be a combination of 偉大 idai (great) and イトウ itou (the Sakhalin taimen). It might also involve 哀悼 aitou (mourning).
