Helioptile is an Electric/Normal-type Pokémon which was first introduced in Generation VI.



Helioptile is a yellow reptile Pokémon, who has blue eyes and long ears. A shiny Helioptile has a red body.


Helioptile absorbs solar rays to generate electricity. It also charges itself in the sun in such a way it doesn't need to eat. Also, when it is attacking, it opens the "ear-like" structures on its head.


Helioptile evolves into Heliolisk by the use of a Sun Stone. This is odd, as Helioptile and Heliolisk are not Grass-types, but Electric-Normal-types, which a Thunderstone would be a proper method that was not used.

Alexa had the Helioptile who travelled with her from Kalos to Unova.


  • No other Pokémon has same type matchup of electric/normal except for Heliolptile and its evolution Heliolisk.


Helioptile is a play on words Heliophile (Something attracted to the sun or light) and Reptile. Helioptile, as its Japanese name implies, is based on a frilled neck lizard.
