Physiology and Behaviour

Appearances

Main Pokémon games

In Pokémon Emerald, Rayquaza is seen in a series of cutscenes. Once the player progresses past the Magma and Aqua Hideouts, Kyogre and Groudon wake up and start fighting, with the Red and Blue Orbs unable to control them. It is eventually sought out at the Sky Pillar, and eventually forces the two to cease their battle. Rayquaza appears as a boss character in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games, where the main team has to fight it in order to have it annihilate a falling star hurtling towards the planet.

Other Pokémon games

Super Smash Bros. series

Rayquaza appears in the story mode of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Subspace Emissary, in which it destroys Fox's crashed Arwing and captures Diddy Kong. It tries to attack Fox, but he reflects the attack back at Rayquaza and frees Diddy Kong. Together they defeat the Rayquaza.

Trophy description

Rayquaza (Brawl)

A Sky High Pokémon. It normally resides high up in the ozone layer where it flies endlessly, so it is rarely seen. However, when Groudon and Kyogre began to fight, it appeared to calm them down. It has the ability Air Lock, which blocks all weather-condition effects. It has exceedingly strong abilities, and its attack power is especially remarkable.

In the anime

Rayquaza is featured in the seventh Pokémon movie, Destiny Deoxys. Four years prior to the main events of the movie, Rayquaza is nearly injured in the ozone layer by the passage of a meteor containing the essence of Deoxys. It seemingly destroys the Deoxys afterwards, but it is eventually revived. Rayquaza goes after it again, but after being rescued by it, Rayquaza decides that it isn't an enemy, and returns to the atmosphere.
