Xatu (Japanese: ネイティオ Natio) is a dual-type Psychic/Flying Pokémon. It evolves from Natu starting at level 25.

Biology

Xatu is a green condor-like Pokémon with long, red-and-black tipped white wings that cover most of its front. Underneath its wings are designs that resemble red eyes. Along with its main green coloration, Xatu's design has accents of black, yellow, and red. There is an extra set of yellow stripes on a male Xatu. It has almond eyes, a long, slightly hooked beak, and two long, red feather crests. Xatu's feet have only two toes, one in front and one in back. Xatu's design is similar to a totem pole or a kachina doll.

Xatu tends to stand still all day. One theory explains that Xatu can see into the future with its right eye and the past with its left, and it does not move due to fears of its visions of the future coming true. The anime has shown that it can communicate its by moving its wings in a semaphore fashion. Xatu is believed to be native to the forests of South America.

Trivia

  • Xatu shares its category with Flygon. They are both known as the Mystic Pokémon in English, and the Spirit Pokémon in Japanese.
  • Xatu's Silver, FireRed, and SoulSilver Pokédex entries state that it is involved in South American myths, which is a connection between the Pokémon world and the real world.

Origin

It seems to be based on a Resplendent Quetzal with design elements from a Native American totem or kachina. Behavior wise, it displays the ancient art of Sun Gazing, a form of spiritual meditation practiced by the Aztec and Mayan in the belief it would give them supernatural power referenced by the fact that Xatu is part Psychic.

Name Origin

As revealed in a Penny Arcade Staff Podcast by Jeff Kalles, who assisted in the naming of many Generation II Pokémon, Xat is a sort of Native American totem pole. Xatu's name arose from The Pokemon Company's desire to have one Pokémon for every letter of the alphabet.

Natio may be a corruption of native.
