Luxray (レントラー) is the 19th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex, It is an Electric-Type, and it is known as the Gleam Eyes Pokémon.

Luxray can use one of two Abilities: Rivalry, which increases both its Attack and Special Attack by 25% if it is going against an opponent of the same gender, but its Attack and Special Attack will fall by 25% if it faces an opponent of the opposite gender; or Intimidate, which reduces the Attack of its opponents by one stage whenever it enters battle. A third Ability is available to Luxray from the Dream World, the Guts Ability. This Ability increases its Attack by 50% when it gets afflicted with a Status Condition.

Shinx can evolve into Luxio at Level 15 and a second time into Luxray at Level 30.

Luxray is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Luxray 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.




It resembles the appearance of a fully grown Lion. It has 3 rings that run underneath the fur on it's front 3 legs, only revealed by a bare section to the back. Similar to it's pre-evolutionary stages, Luxio, who has 2 rings; and Shinx, who has one.

Gender Differences

The female has a shorter mane than the male counterpart.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Luxray finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. Unlike most Electric-Type Pokémon, Luxray has halfway decent defenses, and it has a high Attack, making physical attacks a better option. However, it isn't very fast, something that faster Pokémon can take advantage of.
