Virizion is a quadrupedal Pokémon that looks like a stag or an antelope. Long horns on the sides of its head finish in dull, curled tips. It has a pointed snout and a black blaze that runs from the tip of its nose to the back of its skull. It has a white face, hind legs, and underbelly. Each side of its neck has a pinked-tipped leaf, and its shoulders have leafy tufts. A medium-length tail is formed by pointy tufts of hair on its back. It has black hooves and lower legs that look like knee-high boots with pink accents at the knees.

Virizion, like the other Swords of Justice, fought humans in order to safeguard Pokémon. Virizion assaults its opponents by darting around them with whirlwind-like speed before cutting them down with its horns. The horns are as sharp as a knife. Sacred Sword was Generation V’s trademark move.
