Kyogre (カイオーガ Kaiooga) is a Water-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It is the Version Mascot of Pokemon Sapphire and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. It is a Primal Pokémon as well.

It is Groudon's rival and is a member of the Weather Trio along with Groudon and Rayquaza.

Biology

Physiology

It seems to resemble something like a giant, dark blue whale or orca. It has two large fins or "wings", each ending with four square-shaped "claws." It has a deep blue body and a white chin area with two spikes protruding under it. Above each eye are two white spots. It has markings on its wings which sort of resemble the letter A with a circle on the top. It also has two small dorsal fins on its back with two stripes running horizontally below the fins. The tail seems tattered with four trails, the inner smaller than the outer. It also has a mouth full of rarely seen sharp triangular teeth.

Primal Kyogre

As Primal Kyogre, it is more than twice its usual size and has a deeper blue body, as well as having a partially translucent body with a golden light glowing from within it, essentially emitting bioluminescence. It has light blue stripes on its body, instead of the usual red. The four tips on both of its large fins remain pure white. The usually opaque middle parts of its large fins become transparent, with red marks on the closer two tips of both its fins that resembles the letter H. The two outer red marks on each of its fins, along with the large circular marks in the center of the fins, turn blue and fuse together to become Alpha symbols. Its four white oval spots, and the part of the top center of its head have a circular marking, where the lines are linked to upper end of the larger oval spots, now also transparent, and they stop at the end of its tattered tail, where the middle of the four trailing parts have the same color as the glow on the majority of its body.

Evolution

Kyogre does not evolve. However, since Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, it is capable of undergoing Primal Reversion in battle if it holds the Blue Orb.

Game Info

Kyogre first appeared in the anime in Gaining Groudon!, and The Scuffle of Legends!, debuting with Groudon as well. Team Magma and Team Aqua were competing to gain both legendaries. Team Aqua, as it turned out, tricked Magma leader, Maxie by taking Kyogre even after they had Groudon. Kyogre also made an appearance in the ninth Pokémon movie, Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea where it was kind of like Manaphy's "steed."

Trivia

  • Kyogre is the only Pokémon that's not an Ice type that can learn Sheer Cold.
  • Despite it saying in the game that Kyogre flew away when defeating it, it isn't a Flying type.
    • In the movie "Hoopa and the Clash of Ages" it is shown flying, however.
  • Primal Kyogre has the highest Speical Attack (180) and Special Defense (160) of all Water-type Pokémon.
  • Before Generation V, Kyogre was the only Pokémon to have the Drizzle Ability.
  • Most of the legendary trio's and duo's look somewhat alike or at least have the same body class. However, all members of the Weather trio are completely different to one another. Kyogre is based on a killer whale, Groudon is based on a theropod dinosaur, whilst Rayquaza is based on a Chinese dragon.
  • Kyogre's moveset has an advantage over all other members of its trio. Water attacks on Groudon and Ice attacks on Rayquaza are super effective.
    • As of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, however, both Primal Groudon and Mega Rayquaza's abilities negate the effectiveness of Water- and Ice-type attacks against them, whereas Primal Kyogre's ability does not negate the effectiveness of types it's weak against.
  • It is highly likely that Kyogre is based on the Leviathan from Judeo-Christian religion.
  • Kyogre and Groudon don't enter battle in their Primal Evolution forms when battling for you (Unless they're holding the Blue Orb/Red Orb respectively. If they are, Kyogre and Groudon will transform as soon as they're sent out).
  • In Super Smash Bros., Kyogre is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Pokéballs. During this time, it uses the move Hydro Pump.
    • Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is the first game Kyogre appears in without ether Groudon or Rayquaza present.
  • Kyogre is one of the collectable spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
  • Primal Kyogre is the heaviest Water-type Pokémon.

Origin

Kyogre is most likely based on an orca (a marine apex predator) with inspiration from sea gods. It may also be based on the Leviathan, a mythical beast described in Abrahamic religion as the "master of the seas".

Etymology

Kyogre's name originates from the Japanese word Kai, which means ocean. Kyogre's name ends in ogre, due to it being large. Without the "Ogre" part, it spells out Kaiō, which means King of the Sea. Also, Kaiō is the first four letters of the word Kaiōsei which means the planet Neptune, named for the Roman version of the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon. It may also incorporate "orca".
