Cresselia (Japanese????? Crecelia) is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

It is a member of the Lunar duo with Darkrai.

Biology

Cresselia has a blue, swan-like body with a yellow underside. It has pink eyes, a dark pink, round tuft on its head, and a pointed, beak-like snout. There are yellow, crescent-shaped ornaments on the sides of its head. Cresselia has glowing, pink, ring-like wings on its sides and back with paw like protrusions resting on its chest. These wings release shining particles and undulate beautifully around the quarter moon. Cresselia has the power to dispel nightmares, and holding one of its feathers is said to bring happy dreams. However, as seen in the anime, it can be quite hostile towards its counterpart, Darkrai. Cresselia is the only known Pokémon able to learn Lunar Dance. Cresselia is a female-only species.

Major appearances

 

Cresselia made its debut appearance in the anime in Sleepless In Pre-Battle!. Cresselia normally returns to its shrine on Fullmoon Island during a certain time of the year when a Darkrai also comes by to cause nightmares. It may also leave its feathers, which people find to help stop the nightmares caused by Darkrai. In the episode, Cresselia helped Ash and the residents of Canalave City get better sleep by stopping Darkrai.

Minor appearances

A Cresselia first appeared in a short cameo in the beginning of Giratina and the Sky Warrior

Eventually, Platinum got on Cresselia in order to chase Charon who was commanding Giratina to fly him out of the Distortion World.

Cresselia in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Cresselia appears on the Spear Pillar stage as one of three Pokémon who appear in the center (the others being Dialga and Palkia). Cresselia acts completely different than the other two in terms of attacks it uses. It will often use Psycho Cuts around the field, and sometimes shoot one large Psycho Cut as if it were a boomerang, hitting anyone that touches it.

Trophy information

Its signature moveLunar Dance, causes Cresselia to faint but recovers all the HP and cures the status conditions of the next Pokémon its Trainer sends out.

Trivia

  • Cresselia can be seen as a counterpart of Darkrai, as Darkrai causes nightmares, whereas Cresselia prevents them. Also, their islands are shaped and named opposite of each other.
    • Furthermore, in the TCG, one of the attacks on Darkrai 3/106 of Great Encounters, Darkness Pursuit, has a base damage of 100 if Cresselia is the opposing Pokémon. Otherwise, it deals 50 damage.
  • Prior to Generation VI, Cresselia's body style was Body14.png.

Origin

Cresselia's form seems to be based on a swan. Considering its crescent moon motif and the aurora-colored planetary rings around its body, it may originate from the constellation Cygnus. Cresselia shares characteristics with Sarimanok, a legendary fowl with a profusely decorated head, feathered tail, and colorful wings that is said to be a symbol of good fortune.

Name origin

Cresselia and Crecelia may be a combination of crescent (referring to the lunar phase
