Genesect (Japanese????? Genesect) is a dual-type Bug/Steel Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, the Drive inserted in the cannon on its back is visibly different within its sprites depending on the Drive it is holding.

Genesect was leaked in the August issue of CoroCoro magazine on July 11, 2012, and it was officially revealed on July 14, 2012.

Genesect is the last Pokémon in the original Unova Pokédex as well as the New Unova Pokédex.

Biology

 
 
Shiny Genesect in its High-Speed Flight Form

Genesect is a bipedal, insectoid Pokémon with a metal body and a saucer-shaped head. It is primarily purple with several gray markings. It has two large red eyes and a small white part that could be either its mouth or a vent. It has thin arms with overlapping segments. Each arm ends with a single, pointed claw. There is a gray circle on each shoulder, and a gray band around its abdomen. Its segmented legs each end with a large, upward curving claw.

 
Genesect spinning its silk

The powerful cannon on its back and other enhancements were apparently added as part of the bizarre modifications made to it by Team Plasma. It is the only Pokémon capable of learning the move Techno Blast, an attack which changes type depending on the Drive it holds. It is indicated that even before Team Plasma powered up Genesect, it was a skilled and ruthless hunter. By folding up its limbs and connecting its head to the cannon on its back, Genesect can assume a flying saucer-like form, allowing it to fly. This form is known as the High-Speed Flight Form (Japanese: ??????). It can also spin a sticky string from its claws.

Genesect was revived from a Fossil and technologically enhanced by Team Plasma to compose the most powerful Pokémon ever. N had the project cancelled and the P2 Laboratory closed because he felt that Pokémon, who he thought to be perfect beings, would lose their beauty if modified by science. However, Scientist Dudley kept working on it, angry that N denied his talent. This scientist reconstructed Genesect and installed the cannon on its back.

N discovered an image of a Genesect on a computer monitor at the ruined P2 Laboratory in The Name's N! while he was investigating Team Plasma's plans.

The Genesect Army, a group of five Genesect led by a Red Genesect, first appeared in Meowth, Colress and Team Rivalry!. During his investigations, N found a destroyed building where a Patrat and Watchog were. By using his power to hear their voices, he had a flashback where he realized that the Genesect Army was responsible for the destruction.

The Genesect Army has a major role in Genesect and the Legend Awakened. In the film, they appear in New Tork City and go on a rampage, bringing them into conflict with a Mewtwo

Trivia

Origin

Genesect is generally based on the giant insects of the Paleozoic era, which existed for 300 million years, making it as old as the cockroach. Its Steel-type features that give it a somewhat robotic appearance may be a reference to alien robots in science fiction media, but this may be due to Team Plasma's modifications. Its design might also be inspired by the "artillery mech" vehicles in various mecha anime and manga.

Name origin

Genesect may be a combination of genegeneticsgenome, or genesis, and insect.
