Ledian (Japanese: レディアン Redian) is a dual-type Bug/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Ledyba starting at level 18.

Biology

Ledian is a Pokémon that resembles a slightly humanoid ladybug. It has a pair of black antennae, a black spot in the center of its forehead and on the back of its head, blue eyes, and a cream-colored area around its mouth; the rest of its head is red. The antennae are shorter on the female than on the male. Its back and the top of its wing covers are red with black spots, while the underside of its body and wing covers are cream-colored. Underneath its wing covers are a pair of clear wings. Its neck and limbs are black. It has four arms with white hands that resemble boxing gloves and a pair of legs with red feet.

Ledian sleeps wrapped in leaves or grass in temperate and tropical forests during the day. At night, it flutters around scattering a glowing powder that is thought to bring good luck. It is believed to use starlight as energy and the patterns on its back grow larger or smaller depending on the number of stars in the sky. In addition to starlight, it loves to eat Berries. A weak fighter, it tries for quantity over power by throwing a barrage of punches with all four of its arms.

Sun While it's believed that starlight provides it with energy, this Pokémon also loves to eat berries. In the daytime, it curls up in the grass to sleep.
Moon In battle, it throws punches with all four arms. The power of each individual blow is piddly, so it aims to win by quantity rather than quality.
Ultra Sun It's said that the patterns on its back are related to the stars in the night sky, but the details of that relationship remain unclear.
Ultra Moon It flies through the night sky, sprinkling sparkly dust. According to some, if that dust sticks to you, good things will happen to you.

Trivia

  • Despite multiple Pokédex entries describing its nocturnal behavior, wild Ledian are almost always encountered exclusively during the morning or daytime.
  • Despite its category, Ledian's five spots are neither star-shaped nor are they arranged in a typical star pattern.
  • Ledian could not learn any Bug-type or Flying-type moves until Generation III. Therefore, a Ledian in Generation II could not receive STAB unless it possessed the appropriate Hidden Power.

Origin

Ledian seems to be based on a ladybug, particularly the Asian ladybeetle or seven-spot ladybird due to its bright red color and black spots. Its nocturnal habits and bioluminescence may be inspired by fireflies. Its humanoid body and large, ovoid head and eyes are also reminiscent of a grey alien.

Name origin

Ledian and Redian may be a combination of ladybug, red, and alien.
