Game info

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, Suicune roams around Kanto if the player character's Starter Pokémon was Charmander and they have beaten the Elite Four. In FireRed and LeafGreen, it is very hard to catch, because it will flee unless you send out a Pokémon that has the ability Shadow Tag or the move Mean Look. It appears at Level 50.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Suicune roams on Johto and Kanto. Once you catch up to it, it appears at Level 40 at both Route 25 and the Burned Tower if they didn't get it at route 25.

Appearances

Movie roles

Pokémon 4Ever

Suicune appeared alongside Celebi as the title character in the movie Pokémon 4Ever. In the movie, Suicune purified the lake to restore Celebi and prevent it from dying.

Zoroark: Master of Illusions

Zoroark, with its ability, Illusion, took the form of Suicune (Along with Entei and Raikou) to cause an uproar in Crown City so that Kodai can freely look for the Ripple of Time.

Shiny counterparts of the Legendary Beasts were guardians of Crown City, coming to aid Crown City in times of need. A Shiny Suicune came to Crown City with the other guardians to stop Zoroark (Which they thought was the enemy), but the trio were stopped by wild Pokémon that defended Zoroark, convincing the trio that Zoroark was not evil. The guardians later scared off Kodai after the Ripple of Time was revealed to be an illusion by Zoroark.

Trivia

  • Suicune is the only one of the Legendary Beast trio to be a version mascot.
  • Ash saw a Suicune at the beginning of his Johto Journey, making this the second time Ash has seen a legendary Johto Pokémon at the beginning of his journey (The first time being Ho-Oh in the first episode).
  • Suicune is the only non-Ice type able to learn Blizzard by leveling up.
  • Learning Blizzard at level 85, Suicune is the Pokémon that learns Blizzard latest of all those who learn it by leveling up.
  • Suicune is the only legendary mascot that is not banned from competitive battles.
  • Suicune is the slowest, the physically weakest, but the most defensive of the legendary beasts.
  • In Super Smash Bros., Suicune is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Poké Balls. During this time, it uses the moves Blizzard and Aurora Beam.

Origin

When asked if Suicune was based on any particular animal, Muneo Saitō described Suicune's creation process to come together easily and fell into a motif that felt "leopard-like".[1][2] This maybe a tribute to Fujin (the Japanese God of the Wind, complimenting Suicune's nickname as the "North Wind") who wore a leopard skin.

However, it also has some wolf-like traits as well, with a longer muzzle and lither body than its more feline brethren. The "horn" on its head and power to purify water also gives the impression it could have some Qilin influence.

Etymology

Suicune may come from sui (water), suisho (crystal), and kun (monarch).
