Clemont's Luxio.

Main article: Clemont's Luxray

Clemont revealed that he made friends with a Luxio when it was a Shinx in his childhood memories. But during his absence, Shinx evolved. Later, Luxio joined the team and he soon evolved into Luxray.

Trivia

Origin

Luxio is based on a lynx with lion traits.

Etymology

Luxio is a combination of lux (Latin for light), lynx, and a corruption of leo (Latin for lion). The "io" in its name may come from "ion" (an atom that has lost or gained some electrons) and the "lux" may come from Luxor, an ancient Egyptian city and/or an Egypt-themed hotel and casino in Las Vegas.
