Swanna (スワンナ Suwanna) is a Water/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Swanna is a somewhat fat avian swan-like Pokémon with large amounts of white plumage. It has a long yellow beak with a black cere around it. On its head are several white-colored feathers with a more pointed feature at the top. Just like with most swans, Swanna possess a curved neck. Located on its plump breast are two light-blue feathery figures that are similar to the ones on its head. Its wings, however, are positioned in a way unconventional to birds. Its legs are small and it has dark-colored webbed feet.

Behavior

It can fly for thousands of mile without rest, much like how Mudsdale can travel long distances on land, and take flight at dawn. At dusk, they dance around their leader. It appears to be very physically powerful as it delivers forceful pecks from its beak.

Evolution

Swanna is the evolved form of Ducklett as of level 35.

Appearances

Anime

Swanna appeared in many episodes of Black & White series. Many important characters such as Skyla, Cameron and Officer Jenny used it.

Trivia

  • Swanna was first seen in a video shown after Oha Suta on July 31, 2010 for the Pokémon Musicals, again when its art leaked on Yahoo's Pokémon website, and finally in the September issue of CoroCoro on August 8, 2010.
  • Swanna is the fourth bird Pokémon to have the Water/Flying-typing, the prior three being Wingull, Pelipper and Ducklett. Generation VIII would introduce Cramorant, though it's Flying/Water.
  • Swanna is the first Flying-type Pokémon Ash Ketchum sees in Unova.

Origin

Swanna is based on a fully-grown swan. It is possibly based on a Trumpeter Swan, as seen by the trumpet it held in a trailer about Pokémon Musicals, but it physically resembles the more common mute swan. It is also possible that it is based on Odette from the Swan Lake ballet, since its appearance appears to be similar to her outfit. Its evolution from a duck to a swan may be a reference to the fairy tale, The Ugly Duckling.

Etymology

Swanna and its Japanese name, Suwanna, are portmanteaus of swan and ballerina.

=Names in other languages

  • French: Lakmécygne (a pun on the French name for Swan Lake (Lac des Cygnes), The French opera Lakmé, and cygne (swan)).
  • German: Swaronessis (comes from swan and baroness).
  • Chinese: 首席天鵝 / 首席天鹅 Shǒuxítiāné (literally translates to "chief swan". The chief part may allude to prima ballerina, one of the highest ranks in ballet for females).
