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

Biology

Physiology

Luxray resembles a fully-grown lion with a black and blue coat and a spiked mane. Black fur covers most of its body except the backs of its legs, midsection and some of its face. It has light-blue legs with three yellow rings on the front legs. On its rear is a spiked tuft of fur. Its tail ends in a golden star. It has red scleras and golden eyes.

Behavior

With eyes that glow in the dark, Luxray possesses the innate ability to see through solid surfaces; this allows it to easily track down its lost young or prey as well as detecting danger nearby.

Gender differences

Males have bigger manes than the females.

Special abilities

Luxray has the abilities Intimidate which halves the opponents attack when Luxray has just come out or an opponent switches a Pokémon or when it's the start of a battle. It can also possess Rivalry, which doubles Luxray's Attack when the opponent is the same gender, and halves Luxray's Attack if it is the opposite gender.

Habitat

Despite being a Sinnoh Pokemon, a lot of them mostly live in Kalos, especially in Lumiose City.

Evolution

Luxray evolves from Luxio as of level 30. Luxray is the final evolution of Shinx.

Appearances

Clemont Luxray

Clemont's Luxray

Main article: Clemont's Luxray

Luxray had a few appearances in The Rise of Darkrai, as one of the Pokémon playing in the garden.

Marble owns a Luxray as her partner. Sadly, it had lost its ability to use electric attacks right after it evolved. Marble's Luxray tried to stop a criminal, but Officer Jenny's Arcanine took care of the criminal when Luxray failed. Marble was about to pet Luxray to calm him down, but Luxray growled at her and ran off. But later, Pikachu used Thunderbolt on Luxray, and it regained its ability to use electric attacks.

The Gym Leader, Volkner has a Luxray that helped restore power. Later on, during Ash's final gym battle, it defeated Pikachu. However, it lost to Infernape after it activated Blaze.

Clemont also owns a Luxray after it evolved from a Luxio.

Manga

Main article: Rayler

In the Pokémon Adventures Manga, Pearl owns a Luxray.

Trivia

  • Luxray has a very similar color scheme to Lucario.
  • The only part of it that stays the same in Luxray's evolutionary line (besides fur color) is its tail.

Origin

Due to it's slightly human-like features on it's head (face, ears) and lion-like appearance, Luxray maybe based on the Egyptian sphinx. The yellow and blue coloration on it's legs could be based on the yellow and blue coloration of the head-dresses pharaohs wore. The star at the end of it's tail is a reference to the constellation Leo.

Etymology

  • Luxray is a combination of Lux (the latin word for "light") and ray (referring to x-ray vision).
