Solgaleo is a Psychic-Steel type Legendary Pokemon. It appears on the cover of Pokemon Sun.
Since ancient times, Solgaleo has been honored as an emissary of the sun. It is referred to with reverence as "the beast that devours the sun." Solgaleo's body holds a vast amount of energy, and it shines with light when it's active. It has a flowing mane with a remarkable resemblance to the sun.
Solgaleo's ability, Full Metal Body, prevents stat loss. It's signature move, Sunsteel Strike, attacks and disregards the target's ability.
- Many people expected that Solgaleo would be Fire-type. It turned out that not only is Solgaleo not Fire-type, but it is weak to it.
- Solgaleo is an alchemy reference. The image of a lion devouring the sun is the alchemical symbol for the purification of metals, hence it's Steel typing.
