Lunala is a dual-type Psychic/Ghost Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.
It evolves from Cosmoem when leveled up in Pokémon Moon, Ultra Moon, or Shield starting at level 53. It is one of Cosmog's final forms, the other being Solgaleo.
Along with Solgaleo, it was initially shown, without a name or any data, in May 2016, but information on it was officially revealed on June 2, 2016.
Lunala is a member of the Light trio along with Solgaleo and Necrozma.
Lunala is the game mascot of Pokémon Moon, appearing on the boxart.
Necrozma fuses with Lunala using the N-Lunarizer to become Dawn Wings Necrozma.
When Lunala enters its Full Moon phase, its third eye—a light red symbol of an eye—appears on its forehead and the starscape turns to streaks of light. The skin of its wings glows a bright, light blue. It spreads its wings wide so that the yellow parts on each wing are arranged in a circle with the outermost points of the four-pointed stars disappearing in the transformation.
Known as the "beast that calls the moon," Lunala has long been honored as an emissary of the moon. This Pokémon constantly absorbs light to convert into energy and can obscure daylight with darkness. When it spreads its wings to absorb light and glitters, it resembles a beautiful night sky. It is said to live in another world, which it returns to when it opens its third eye. Lunala can create Ultra Wormholes to travel to and from Ultra Space. Lunala and its counterpart, Solgaleo, can create Cosmog, which it is said to be the female evolution of. It can also influence a Rockruff's evolution into Lycanroc's Midnight form with lunar energy.
Lunala is the only Pokémon capable of learning the move Moongeist Beam and the exclusive Z-Move Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom.
