Rayquaza (Japaneseレックウザ Rayquaza) is a dual-type Dragon/Flying Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, Rayquaza can Mega Evolve into Mega Rayquaza if it knows Dragon Ascent, but only if it is not holding a Z-Crystal. In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Rayquaza featured in the Delta Episode must be caught (which requires it to eat the Meteorite) before the player can Mega Evolve any Rayquaza.

Rayquaza is the game mascot of Pokémon Emerald, appearing on the boxart of the game. It serves to end the conflict between Kyogre and Groudon when Team Magma's leader Maxie and Team Aqua's leader Archie awakened them.

Along with Kyogre and Groudon, Rayquaza is a part of the super-ancient Pokémon, serving as its trio master. In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, it plays an important role during the Delta Episode and is required to be caught there to fight Deoxys.

Biology

Rayquaza is a large, green, serpentine Pokémon that also resembles a missile. It has red-tipped, rudder-like wings on its shoulders and down its body, and similarly patterned fins on the tip of its tail. Yellow ring-like symbols run across the length of Rayquaza's body and it has an additional yellow ring on top of its head. Rayquaza has two limbs with three-clawed hands, and two long, flat, horn-like structures on its head, with two shorter horns along its jawline. It has small, yellow eyes with black pupils, prominent pink gums, and two discernible fangs in its upper jaw.

As Mega Rayquaza, its body becomes longer and gains more features. Its head becomes longer with the Δ symbol appearing on its forehead. Rayquaza's eyes now contain yellow pupils and red irises, and black, shichishito-shaped markings trail behind its eyes. Its red lips and teeth become gold, and the gold lines connect to those on its lower horns, which take on a broad, triangular shape. At the outer edges of its lower horns are long, golden, glowing tendrils that each extend to a green, fin-like structure; these tendrils have ring patterns that strongly resemble the yellow markings running along the length of Rayquaza's normal form. While in flight, these tendrils give Mega Rayquaza a Δ-shaped profile. Its two upper horns become longer with a gold line running over them in a V shape, and each upper horn has another glowing tendril that ends in a circular shape with a spike. Along the length of its body are golden, glowing orbs placed where its ring patterns used to be. The chin, part of the neck, and parts of its serpentine body are changed to the color black. The fins running along its body are now marked with gold lines; the fins on its tail become entirely yellow and substantially longer. Particles stream from the long tendrils that extend from its jutting jaw; these particles can control the density and humidity of the air, allowing Mega Rayquaza to manipulate the weather. Its green hide sparkles with an emerald-like quality.[1]

Inside Rayquaza's body lies an organ that contains the same power as a Mega Stone. A Devon Corporation scientist named this organ the mikado organ (Japanese: ミカド器官). By consuming meteoroids as it flies through the stratosphere, the mikado organ will be filled with enough energy to enable Rayquaza's Mega Evolution.

It is able to soothe the other members of the super-ancient Pokémon, even in their Primal Forms. Rayquaza is said to have lived for hundreds of millions of years in the ozone layer, where it feeds on water and other particles. Rayquaza is rarely seen by people; even in flight, its appearance is indistinguishable from that of a meteor. Rayquaza preys on the Minior in the Alola region. Rayquaza possesses some of the strongest attack power out of any Pokémon. Rayquaza is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Dragon Ascent.

Major appearances

Rayquaza (M07)

Rayquaza debuted in Destiny Deoxys. It fought Deoxys, believing it was invading the Sky High Pokémon's territory when Deoxys was in fact looking for its friend, another Deoxys.

Rayquaza (Pokémon the Series: XY)

In Mega Evolution Special II, a Rayquaza showed up and Mega EvolvedAlain and Steven tried to battle it, but they were quickly defeated by the Sky High Pokémon. In Mega Evolution Special III, it tried to stop the destructive battle between Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre as both were trying to obtain the Giant Rock, and eventually succeeded.

Other

In Malice In Wonderland!Cynthia appeared to own a Rayquaza, but it was only an illusion composed by Mismagius. Whenever Mismagius fuses with Rayquaza, it becomes the same color as the Mismagius, making it look like a Shiny Rayquaza.

Rayquaza made its physical main series debut in Where No Togepi Has Gone Before!. It used Hyper Beam on the rocket ship Ashhis friends, and Team Rocket were on, presumably in order to protect its territory from them.

In BWS02Iris saw a Rayquaza and decided to follow it and see where it would go next.

In Hoopa and the Clash of Ages, a Shiny Rayquaza capable of Mega Evolving was summoned alongside Latios and Latias by Hoopa to protect it from the shadow Hoopa Unbound. The trio protected Hoopa from the shadow Hoopa and its reinforcements, Primal Groudon, Primal KyogreDialgaPalkiaGiratina, and Kyurem, in Dahara City.

To stop the battle between Kyogre and Groudon, Wally and Norman trained at the Sky Pillar and woke up Rayquaza. Five years earlier, Ruby's victory over a Salamence was the reason Norman was banned from the Gym Leader test as the wounded Salamence rampaged in a lab, accidentally letting Rayquaza, who was in captivity at that time, free. Having been ordered to recapture Rayquaza in the five years he was prohibited from attaining a Gym Leader position, Norman attended the Mossdeep Space Center and scrutinized its tracks, finally discovering that it slumbered atop the Sky Pillar when it wasn't scouring beyond Earth's atmosphere. With Wally's help, he was able to awaken and take command of Rayquaza, using it to calm Groudon and Kyogre in conjunction with Ruby's Red and Blue Orbs. When Norman fell under the strain of controlling Rayquaza without a proper medium, it escaped once again. It first appeared in Rayquaza Redemption I.

Rayquaza in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Rayquaza appears in The Subspace Emissary mode as a boss. After Diddy Kong lands in The Lake, Rayquaza lunges out of the water and grabs him, angry at being disrupted. Before it can further attack, Fox ejects out of his ship, which had crashed and been destroyed by Rayquaza earlier, and rescues Diddy Kong. Enraged, Rayquaza attacks Fox with Dragon Pulse, but Fox reflects its attack back at it, sending it reeling back into the water. Rayquaza soon launches back out and engages in battle against Fox and Diddy Kong.

Like all other Subspace Emissary bosses, Rayquaza is later battled again in The Great Maze, and can be fought in the Boss Battles mode after the latter is unlocked. Its attacks in battle include ExtremeSpeedThunderDig*Iron Tail, and Fly.

Trophy information

A Sky High Pokémon. It normally resides high up in the ozone layer where it flies endlessly, so it is rarely seen. However, when Groudon and Kyogre began to fight, it appeared to calm them down. It has the ability Air Lock, which blocks all weather-condition effects. It has exceedingly strong abilities, and its attack power is especially remarkable.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

 
Rayquaza in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Rayquaza appears as an occasional stage hazard in the Dragonmark Chamber of the Kalos Pokémon League stage. Appearing rarely, it flies across the stage at various angles, dealing damage to fighters. Its path is shown briefly by lightning before it appears, giving players time to avoid it.

Trophy information

This Dragon- and Flying-type Pokemon usually dwells high in the ozone layer, so it can't be seen from the ground. In the Kalos Pokemon League stage, it occasionally flies at great speed through the Elite Four's Dragon-type chamber, where any fighters in its path will be damaged and launched with great force.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Rayquaza appears as a Spirit, as well as retaining its rare appearance in the Dragonmark Chamber on the Kalos Pokémon League stage.

Game data

NPC appearances

  • Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire: Rayquaza is the focus of the third and final Bonus Field. It can only be challenged after capturing Groudon or Kyogre and will then join the circuit of bonus fields. Rayquaza will bounce along from left to right, allowing the ball to roll under it if it is up. It will sometimes use Thunder to paralyze the ball if it is not moving fast enough, though it does stay still while it is unleashing the attack. Rayquaza will also sometimes use ExtremeSpeed to compose two tornadoes that cause the ball to fly up into the air for several seconds if contact is made. Rayquaza must be hit 15 times in three minutes to win. After beating the round twice, Rayquaza will be captured.
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rayquaza acts as the final boss, living on the Sky Tower. After it is defeated, Rayquaza helps save the world from a meteor. After the credits roll, the player can re-battle Rayquaza to recruit it.
  • Pokémon Ranger: Rayquaza can be captured in a bonus mission after the credits.
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Darkness: Rayquaza is the guardian of the Sky Melodica.
  • Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon: Rayquaza first appears early into the game, fleeing to space in fear of Dark Matter's influence. When Dark Matter attempts to take the Tree of Life to space, Rayquaza and Deoxys use their energy to try and slow its ascent from above, with Rayquaza even Mega Evolving. Ultimately, when Dark Matter regenerates itself for the first time, it unleashes even more energy, turning both Rayquaza and Deoxys to stone. At the conclusion of the event, Rayquaza turns back to normal and takes residence at Dragon Gate and guards the Wind Looplet.

Trivia

  • Rayquaza is the only member in its trio:
    • That cannot undergo Primal Reversion, with Mega Evolution replacing this instead.
    • To not be directly sought after by a specific villainous team.
    • That cannot learn a one-hit knockout move.
    • Prior to Generation VIII, could not learn its signature move by level-up, as it must learn it by Move Tutor.
    • That didn't appear in Gaining Groudon and The Scuffle of Legends.
    • That can participate in Sky Battles.
    • To be dual-typed, when Groudon is not under the effects of Primal Reversion.
    • To not have a base stat total of 670 in its normal form and 770 in its alternate form.
    • To be the game mascot of only one game.
  • Mega Rayquaza has the highest base Attack and Special Attack stats and the highest base stat total of all Dragon-type and Flying-type Pokémon.
  • Mega Rayquaza is the tallest Mega Evolved Pokémon.
    • It is also the tallest Flying-type Pokémon.
  • Rayquaza's catch rate was raised from its original value of 3 to 45 in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
  • Rayquaza was the most voted Pokémon of all pre-Generation V Pokémon in the Korean Pokémon Global Link promotion poll.
    • Rayquaza was also the most voted on the 15th anniversary poll, which was for the game mascots of the core series games, making it Japan's favorite game mascot.
  • Rayquaza is misspelled as "Rayquayza" in Pokémon Team Turbo in every instance.
  • Rayquaza is the only trio master capable of Mega Evolution.
  • Rayquaza is the only Pokémon capable of Mega Evolving that does not require a Mega Stone to do so in the games.
    • It is, therefore, the only Pokémon that can have a different held item (apart from Z-Crystals) while Mega Evolved, since Mega Stones cannot be taken off their proper holder during battle.
    • It is also the only Pokémon not to have the message "(The opposing) <Pokémon>'s <Mega Stone> is reacting to its Key Stone!" when it Mega Evolves. Instead, it has the message "<player>'s fervent wish has reached Rayquaza!".
  • Mega Rayquaza is tied with Mewtwo's Mega Evolutions for the highest base stat total of all Pokémon, with 780, excluding non-playable Eternamax Eternatus.
    • This makes it the only Pokémon with a base stat total above 720 that doesn't require a specific held item.
  • Rayquaza was designed by Hironobu Yoshida.[2]
  • In the Pokémon of the Year poll held by The Pokémon Company in 2020, Rayquaza was voted the most popular Generation III Pokémon, receiving 60,939 votes. It was also the eighth-most popular Pokémon overall.
    • It was also voted as the most popular Legendary Pokémon, as well as being the only Legendary to make the top ten results.

Origin

Rayquaza's design is probably based on the Chinese dragon and the Lindworm. Its role is similar to that of Ziz in Hebrew fake histories. Rayquaza matches the description of the Aztec fake creature Quetzalcoatl, who was depicted as a flying serpent and created the boundary between the earth (including the oceans) and the sky. The markings on Rayquaza's body may be inspired from The Nazca Lines. Its trait of being capable of inhabiting the skies, and living there while subsisting on nothing but dew and particles for centuries, also bears aspects of the legendary Chinese xian hermit sages and East Asian dragons, specifically Japanese dragons, who are commonly depicted with three claws, as opposed to four in Chinese dragons.

Name origin

Rayquaza most likely refers to Raqiya, the Hebrew word for "firmament". It also may be a combination of ray and quasar. Alternatively, it may be a combination of 烈 retsu (violent or furious), 空  (sky), and 座 za (seat or location), which can be taken to mean "one that sits in the ferocious heavens".

Rayquaza's mikado organ refers to 帝 mikado (emperor), another name for the Emperor of Japan or 天皇 tennō in Japanese, which can be translated as either "heavenly sovereign" or "king of the heaven/sky".

Also, one of the names of Xiuhcoatl or Quetzalcoatl in Spanish is "La Serpiente turquesa", which could be next transformed into "La-quesa" and next "Rayquaza".
