Lugia (ルギア, Lugia) is a species of Pokémon in the series of the same name. It is a dual-type Psychic/Flying legendary Pokémon that made its first appearance in the second generation games Gold and Silver.

Physiology and Behaviour

Lugia is recognized as the guardian of the sea in many forms of Pokémon. It is evident that Lugia behaves very protective of its habitat due to this philosiphy. Lugia is often seen in fan-art compared to its darker plural, or shadow form, Shadow Lugia. Shadow Lugia first appeared in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness on the Nintendo GameCube.

Trophy descriptions

Super Smash Bros. Melee

The waters of the Whirl Islands are home to this legendary Pokémon, whom very few have seen. Lugia live quietly in the deepest ocean trenches for one very good reason: its combined aerial and psychic powers are so strong as to be extremely dangerous. The special moves of this gargantuan creature include the destructive wind assault known as Aeroblast.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

A Diving Pokémon. A legendary Pokémon often referred to as "guardian of the seas," it has the impressive ability to control the wind. Lugia typically spends its time quietly at the bottom of the ocean. Highly powerful in all areas, Lugia's Aeroblast move is especially powerful. It uses strong flapping of its wings to target damage on a foe's weak spot.
