Helioptile (Japanese: エリキテル Erikiteru) is a dual-type Electric/Normal Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves into Heliolisk when exposed to a Sun Stone.

Biology

Helioptile is a bipedal, lizard-like Pokémon. It is primarily pale yellow with black paws and tail tip. The top of its head is also black with a triangular yellow marking on its forehead. It has blue eyes, a slightly pointed head, a tapering tail, and three toes on each foot. On either side of its head hangs a pointed, extension with a yellow tip. These can stiffen and expand into a frill.

These frills have cells that generate electricity when exposed to sunlight. This allows it to create its own energy and thrive without food in its desert home. The frills act similar to solar panels and it the source of Heiloptile's electric moves. However should this process get interrupted, Helioptile will be stressed to the point of weakness.

Helioptile and its evolved form Heliolisk are the only known Pokémon capable of learning Parabolic Charge in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Trophy information

A very timid Pokémon that makes its home in arid deserts. The necktie-like frills on either side of its head can be stretched out to absorb sunlight, which Helioptile then uses to generate electricity. Thanks to this energy source, it can even survive without food. If your phone runs out of battery in the desert, why not ask this guy for help?

Trivia

Origin

Helioptile is probably based on frilled-neck lizards, though its frills also resemble those found on secret toad-headed agama. It may also be based on the spotted salamander, a salamander that can photosynthesize. Its ability to learn Surf may be a reference to the common basilisk, a reptile capable of running on water for short distances. Like what its German name suggests, Helioptile may be based on the iguana too. Additionally, it shares few resemblances to the leopard gecko.

Name origin

Helioptile is a combination of ἥλιος helios (Ancient Greek for sun), heliophile (organism attracted to large amounts of sunlight), and reptile.

Erikiteru may be a combination of elekiter, エリマキトカゲ erimaki tokage (frill-necked lizard), and 照る teru (to shine).
