Luxray (Japanese: レントラー Rentoraa) is a Electric-type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation IV.


Luxray is based on a full-grown lion with a blue coat and a black, spiked mane. Black fur covers most of its body except the backs of it legs, midsection and some of its face. It has light-blue and yellow three rings on the backs of its legs. On its rear is a spiked tuft of fur. Its tail ends in a golden star, similar to that of the constellation Leo the Lion. It has red scleras and yellow eyes.

Special Abilities

Luxray has the abilities Intimidate which halves the opponents attack when Luxray has just come out or a opponent switches a Pokémon or when it's the start of a battle or Rivalry, which doubles Luxray's Attack when the opponent is the same gender, and halves Luxray's Attack if it is the opposite gender.

Luxray in the Pokémon Adventures Manga.

In the Pokémon Adventures Manga, Pearl owns a Luxray.


Luxray had a few appearances in The Rise of Darkrai, as one of the Pokémon playing in the garden.

Marble owns a Luxray as her partner. Sadly, it had lost its ability to use electric attacks right after it evolved. Marble's Luxray tried to stop a criminal, but Officer Jenny's Arcanine took care of the criminal when Luxray failed. Marble was about to pet Luxray to calm him down, but Luxray growled at her and ran off. But later, Pikachu used Thunderbolt on Luxray, and it regained its ability to use electric attacks.

The Gym Leader, Volkner has a Luxray that helped restore power. Later on during Ash's final gym battle, it defeated Pikachu. However, it lost to Infernape after it activated Blaze.


Luxray evolves from Luxio as of level 30. Luxray is the final evolution of Shinx

Pokédex Entries



  • Luxray has a very similar color scheme to Lucario.
  • Luxray is based on Leo the Lion because of the "star" on its tail and that it resembles a full grown lion.
  • Luxray is a combination of "Lux", a measure of brightness, and "X-Ray" because of its eyesight.
  • The only part of it that stays the same in Luxray's evolutinary line (besides fur color) is it's tail.
