Biology

Lurantis is a plant-like Pokémon that looks like an insect. Its upper half is pale pink, while the bottom half is white. It has two green antennas and two bright red eyes with a little green bump between them. The top part of its head has four extensions: two on top with red points that mimic ears, and one on each side with white tips that resemble styled hair. It features a bright pink body with wavy waist extensions and a green abdomen and neck. Its slim, white arms are terminated by big, red scythes with white around the bottom rim and a single green claw at the tip. It has pink and red vertical stripes along its legs, which have short, pointed green feet. The colour and form of Lurantis’s torso and arms create the impression that it is wearing a long-sleeved garment, while its legs resemble slacks. Four crimson, wing-like appendages with white tips grow from its back.

Lurantis has the appearance and fragrance of a flower, which it uses to draw enemies in for a surprise assault. Its beautiful colouring and graceful skills have earned it the title the most gorgeous Grass-type Pokémon. It does, however, disguise itself as a Bug Pokémon for safety. Maintaining its look requires meticulous care. If a Trainer takes excellent care of it, Lurantis will trust them more than a lazy Trainer who has beautiful, dazzling colors.

Lurantis can shoot laser beams with its sickle-like arms by collecting light. Metal plates may be cleaved by these beams. Solar Blade was the trademark move of Generation VII.
