Luxray (Japanese: レントラー Rentorar) is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Luxio starting at level 30. It is the final form of Shinx.

Biology

Luxray's X-ray vision from its point of view

Luxray is a quadrupedal Pokémon resembling a fully-grown lion. While its face, hind legs, torso, and the back of its front legs are blue, much of its body is covered with shaggy, black fur. The fur is longer around the shoulders and the base of the tail, and forms a mane on its head. The mane is larger on the male than on the female. It has yellow eyes with red sclerae, a blunt muzzle, and rounded ears with yellow insides. The eyes change to the color when when using its ability. There are three yellow half-rings on the back of each foreleg. Its long, thin tail is tipped with a yellow four-pointed star.

Luxray has powerful eyesight that is capable of seeing through most objects, like X-ray vision. It uses this ability for hunting and keeping track of its offspring. However, this ability requires a lot of electricity to use. As a result, Luxray needs to sleep for long periods of time in order to store up more energy. Luxray live in packs, each having one male to lead them.

Trivia

  •  Luxray is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 523.

Origin

Luxray resembles an adult male lion or lynx. Much like Luxray, lynxes in mythology were believed to have supernatural eyesight, capable of seeing through solid objects. Luxray's vision is also similar to a modern radiograph or "X-ray machine", explaining the basis for its name and Electric typing.

Luxray's appearance may have also been inspired by the mythical sphinx, as its short face, human-like ears, and lion-like appearance are similar. In addition, it may have been inspired by the constellation Leo, due to Luxray's lion-like appearance and the fact that it and its pre-evolved forms bear a signature star shape on the end of their tails. Furthermore, its Japanese name suggests at least some minor influence from tigers.

Name origin

Luxray may be a combination of lux (Latin for light), lynx, and X-ray.

Rentorar may be derived from レントゲン Röntgen (alternate name for the X-ray, named after its discoverer Wilhelm Röntgen) and 虎 tora (tiger).
