Phione (Japanese: ???? Phione) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, it can only be obtained by breeding Manaphy or another Phione with Ditto.

It is a member of the sea guardians with Manaphy.

Phione's status as a Mythical Pokémon is often disputed, with contradiction occurring even between official sources.

Biology

Phione is a blue Pokémon with a round head and a tiny body. Phione's head is crowned by a flotation sac with a long, ribbon-like antenna. Its mouth is small, and its eyes are large with blue sclera and gray irises. Above its eyes are two blue, circular markings connected to the eyes by a thin black line. Its long, flipper-like arms have rounded tips. Phione has a red, oval gem on its chest and a single rudimentary foot spike.

Phione inflates the sac on its head to drift in the water and search for food. When the water grows warm, it will drift in packs with other members of its species. No matter how far it has drifted, it will always return to the place where it was born.

Trivia

  • Phione is the only Pokémon that is obtainable by breeding a Mythical Pokémon.
  • Breeding either Manaphy or Phione can produce a Phione Egg, but Phione is unable to evolve into Manaphy nor produce Eggs that can hatch into Manaphy.
    • Consequently, Phione and Manaphy are the only Mythical Pokémon that can be bred.
  • Phione, Nidoran>Nidoran+Illumise and Volbeat are the only Pokémon that can be obtained by breeding a Pokémon they cannot evolve into.
  • Phione has exactly the same base stats as Glalie.
  • Phione is not found in any regional Pokédex.

Mythical status

Phione's status as a Mythical Pokémon is disputed, with several pieces of evidence and even official statements often contradicting each other.

Evidence for

 
The 2011 Style Guide

Evidence against

  • Phione can breed to produce another Phione; this is impossible with any other Legendary and Mythical Pokémon. However, Manaphy can also breed to produce Phione, and Manaphy is a confirmed Mythical Pokémon.
  • Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver: Prima's Official Strategy Guide states that Phione is not Legendary (a term used at the time to describe both Legendary and Mythical Pokémon) due to it being able to be obtained by hatching Eggs.
  • In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, all Mythical Pokémon are referred to as "rare," but Phione is not. It is also found normally in the wild.

Other

  • Pokémon.com's mailbag was once asked[dead link] if Phione was Legendary. The official answer was initially no, but was quickly changed to yes; the whole mailbag section has since been taken down with the restructure of Pokémon.com.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Phione is probably based on sea angels, specifically clione. Clione are remarkably popular in Japanese documentaries, especially in Hokkaido, on which Sinnoh is based (this may also explain their appearance in Chocovine Town).

Name origin

Phione may be a combination of the final syllable of Manaphy and clione (sea angels). Like clione, Phione is pronounced in three syllables.
