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

Biology

Physiology

Helioptile is a small, yellow, quadrupedal, reptilian Pokémon that resembles a frilled lizard. It has round, blue eyes and long, thin, floppy, deep, gray, ear-like appendages with yellow, triangular tips which dangle from either side of its head. Helioptile's body is mainly bright yellow; its feet, the tip of its long tail and the top of its head are deep gray. Its body is slinky and thin, with tiny clawed feet and a long tail. Helioptile's head is quite large compared to its body. The top of its round head is slightly conical in shape.

A Shiny Helioptile has a bright red body with some yellow patches.

Behavior

Helioptile absorbs solar rays to generate electricity. It also charges itself in the sun in such a way it doesn't need to eat. Also, when it is attacking, it opens the "ear-like" structures on its head.

Evolution

Helioptile evolves into Heliolisk by the use of a Sun Stone.
