Miraidon (Japanese: ミライドン, HepburnMiraidon) (also known as Iron Serpent) is a Electric/Dragon - type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation IX. It is the mascot Legendary Pokémon of Pokémon Violet.

Biology[]

Physiology[]

Miraidon is a large robotic reptilian Pokémon. Most of its body is violet in color, although its face, claws, abdomen, and tail are gray. Additionally, there are light purple accents on its shoulders and legs, the latter of which resemble jet engines when folded and allow it to float in the air. Its head has a dark purple casque, circular purple cheeks, two pairs of electric antennae, and black eyes. The eyes have a pixelated display; they usually show yellow-cyan pupils, although Miraidon can simulate blinking by changing the display pattern. Inside Miraidon's body is what appears to be purplish-yellow energy, with white streaks accenting it. This energy is mostly concentrated on its throat (forming a prominent circular growth), tail, and antennae (which can emit the energy in a manner similar to electricity). The energy has a blue glow around the edges from all angles.

It is confirmed that Miraidon is the futuristic version of Cyclizar.

Natural Abilities[]

Miraidon has the ability to change its form in order to facilitate travel. Drive Mode Miraidon can generate the energy in its tail and throat and turn them into wheel-like rings, which allow it to accelerate. Aquatic Mode Miraidon is similar in appearance to Drive Mode, and propels itself using both its rings and the jet engines on its legs. Glide Mode Miraidon moves its antennae in order to expand an energy membrane, allowing it to glide and fly through the sky.

Evolution[]

Miraidon cannot evolve.

Sprites[]

    In the Anime[]

    A Miraidon made its debut in a short based on Team Rocket's expedition to Paldea, where they tried to catch it. However, it noticed them and flew past them at high speed before electrocuting them, blasting them off.

    Trivia[]

    • Miraidon's Japanese name (ミライドン) is very similar to the Japanese name of Miraitowa (ミライトワ), the official mascot of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The first 3 katakana are the same, the 4th katakana in Miraidon's name is the same as Miraitowa's but with dakuten added to change its sound. The 5th katakana is the only one in both names that is fully different as it is not a variation of the same character.
      • This is evident when you put either Japanese name into Wikipedia, as results for both the "Miraitowa and Someity" and "List of Generation IX Pokemon" pages pop up.

    Origin[]

    Miraidon largely resembles an Asian dragon or dinosaur with futuristic elements. It also shares traits with motorbikes (perhaps the light cycles from the TRON series) and air crafts, as the electrical parts on its head resemble handlebars, its throat resembles a bike tire, and it also has jet propellers on its sides. Its purple-and-yellow color scheme and futuristic motorbike inspiration may also be a reference to the Transformers character Sideways. Miraidon may also be partially inspired by the thought experiment known as Roko’s basilisk, a thought experiment in which an artificial supercomputer creates a simulation in which it tortures those who know of its existence but did not contribute to it.

    Etymology[]

    Miraidon may originate from mirai (未来, Japanese for "future") and don (Spanish for "lord").The suffix -don, meaning "tooth", is also most commonly given to dinosaur names. It may also incorporate "ride on", as it resembles a motorbike and/or aircraft and a bicycle and the player can ride on it.
