Xatu (Japanese: ネイティオ Natio) is a Psychic/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.



A Xatu

Xatu is a green bird-like Pokémon with features resembling that of a totem pole. Much larger than their pre-evolved form, Natu, Xatu have large, white wings that they usually place in front of them, almost covering their entire front. On Xatu's chest, there is a patch of green with a pattern in it that resembles two eyes.

There is a very subtle difference between the male and female Xatu. On a male Xatu there are three yellow stripes on the lower part of its body, on a female there is only two.

Special abilities

Xatu can have the abilities Synchronize or Early Bird. The ability Synchronize will pass on an inflicted status effect to an opponent, while Early Bird will allow for quick awakening from a sleep status effect.

On a few occasions, Xatu have been shown using their psychic abilities in a variety of ways, mainly though, it has been seen using them to predict the future.


Xatu is the evolved form of Natu, as of level 25.

In the anime


May reminisces about a movie with a Xatu that is similar to Titanic.

Xatu have made a few appearances throughout the anime, the first of which was in the episode Xatu the Future. In this episode, Xatu were used by a girl named Callista in order to predict the weather. The problem was that one of her Xatu was having trouble making correct predictions.

Xatu again appeared in the episode Me, Myself and Time, under the ownership of another girl named Callista (no relation to the first), who had traveled back through time.

Xatu's third appearance so far, was in the episode Lights, Camerupt, Action. In this episode a Xatu and a Natu were featured in a movie that was very similar to the actual film Titanic. Xatu's final appearance was in the Pokémon DP Galactic Battles episode "Historical mystery tour" were it and it's pre-evolved form Natu appeared.
